    Red face Getting back into maths!

    Hi Im from Melbourne, Australia. I am 29 years old male. I work in IT as a Support Specialist and would like to move onto a more senior role. I am looking at studing Cisco and Microsoft but would like to work on Math and English again to have a solid base to work from when moving onto learn the before mentioned.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the types of books to begin with? I didnt do specialist math in high school, I did the class below. I haven't been very confident with Maths hence why I'm here!

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Hi, Serge Lang's Basic Mathematics pretty much covers everything and will prepare you for up to Calculus

    Discrete mathematics is especially relevant to information technologies. Also, by an accident of curricula development at least in the USA and possibly other countries, discrete math became the topic where students are introduced to proofs, which form the heart of mathematics in general.
