Hi, I don't know much about mathematical logic (just a few things in set theory), I'm looking for some books that I could have a broad understanding of mathematical logic with. Could you help me with the books I ought to read?

Thanks for helping.

I haven't looked at too many, but I've always found this one very comprehensive:

H.-D Ebbinghaus, J. Flum, and W. Thomas.*Mathematical Logic.*2nd ed. NY: Springer-Verlag, 1994.

Hello simon01

Welcome to Math Help Forum!If you'd like to look at some basic Set Theory and Logic online - with lots of worked examples and exercises with answers - you could look at the stuff I've written for Wikibooks (under a different name!) here:

Discrete Mathematics/Set theory - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks

and here:
