    Hi,

    I don't know about other people here but I work best when I have something to hold me to what I was trying to accomplish. So I was wondering (sorry if its not in the right place or something) if anybody wanted to work through (exercises and such) any of the following books:

    * Pinter's Abstract Algebra (or any similar books)
    * Thompson's Calculus Made Easy (or anything similar)
    * How to Prove It
    * Anything up to topics of this level

    I know it's a lot to ask but I thought I might get lucky :)

    If it's worth anything, I would be more than willing to help you through any of these books. :smile: Of course, I already know the material, but that might actually be an advantage...

    PM me if you're interested :smile:

    Lol
    Anyways, to OP: I've been recently suggested to read Pinter. I think I'll go with it. It'd take me a few weeks to order it though...

    LMAO at the nerd humor...?

    To people who are interested:

    We will be collaborating (I hope) on this website: http://thoughtgroups.dyndns.org:3000/ [Broken]. I'll be creating some more groups as people become interested in more books, etc. I ask to please spare the site of spam... I don't think it's quite ready for that :)

    I think calling that "nerd humor" is an insult to nerds!

    Changed the address... I hope everything works on the site now: http://thoughtgroups.dyndns.org [Broken].

    Maybe I'll make a new thread about it. Hmm...

    I'll work through it, amazon said Pinter is coming in today or tomorrow. I also have Spivak and How to Prove it.
