Sorry if this thread is in the wrong section, I tryed posting in the learning materials section but an error occured when trying to post.
Currently I am reading a book called " Elementry Algebra " by Henry Sinclair.. Great book.
My question is, are there other good algebra books that any one can recommend?
thank you.

I was wondering where you were getting those obscure algebra problems from. Those problems are quite above the level of "Elementary Algebra" or "Algebra I" that students study today. I'm not sure you'll find a textbook, currently used by schools, that will approach this level.

FWIW, I like Introductory Algebra by Lial, because the teaching is done in the text. Buy a used, older edition and you can get it for cheap.

And thank you for the recommendation, I will check it out right now.

you mentioned that these problems are more advanced than an algebra 1 course... Is this book you recommended advanced?
