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.

Now, I have found one book I have brought 'Schaum's Outline of Essential Computer Mathematics'

A second book would be grand! Thank you for your time.

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!
