Lately i've been taking a unit that deals with abstract algebra and i'm finding myself not understanding the lectures at all. To make matters worse the unit doesn't have a reccomended text book so I don't even have any infomation to self learn from.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I guess what I'm asking is for some good reccomendations to text books for someone who is new to this field or could someone at least explain the concept of dual and quotient vector spaces?

Cheers, Serenity
