Hi
Im looking for discrete mathematics and algebra books to study. I want to enhance my understanding of algorithms and programming and i like discrete mathematics
I'm reading Apostol for this semester's calculus (took a look at spivak too).
Any book as good as them that will be useful for me ?

I have a perfect match for you: "A Computational Introduction to Number Theory and Algebra" by Victor Shoup. This book is focused mostly on the algebra and number theory, but the principal focus is on the computer science. The book is also available as PDF form for free at the author's website: http://shoup.net/ntb/

You might also like "Concrete Mathematics" by Knuth et al. and "Combinatorics" by Cameron at al.
