ok, so I'm about to start a computer science degree course. One of the entry requirements for mathematics is a C or above at GCSE. Now, I want to prepare myself mathematically for this course. I haven't done maths in a long while. The link below shows the general content of the course. I want to find a book introducing mathematics in general or/and mathematics relating to computer science.

Take a look at the description and reviews on Amazon of Concrete Mathematics: A Foundation for Computer Science.

Concrete Mathematics is an excellent book written by the same professor who wrote The Art of Computer Programming  an algorithm bible. Nevertheless, I wouldn't suggest you Concrete Mathematics at this point of time, on the other hand, I would recommend you to take a look at this one  Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications by Kenneth H. Rosen, if you feel comfortable with that then you can move on to some pretty advanced books like Concrete Math. Good luck!
