I am signing up to take my first course in complex analysis this upcoming semester at my university. One of the professors with whom I am interested in taking the class is using Complex Analysis 2nd edition by Bak & Newman and the other one is using Complex Variables & Applications 7th edition by Brown/Churchill. Can you comment on these books? Do you recommend one over the other? Why? If relevant, my preparation for the course includes a first course in real analysis using "baby Rudin" (that is, Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis and not his more advanced text).
