I am planning on self studyint Discrete Math. What would be a good book for this?
I didn't use this book. But here is a free online version:
I skimmed through it and it seems cool. I hated math when I took Discrete math. Now that I'm in a different mindset, I want to go back and take the class :)
It'll be interesting to see what people recommend, because I'm pretty sure... I'm going to be doing the same thing as you soon.
For some reason I can't "get into" books on the computer. I have to hold it, and highlight stuff. I also want something that focusses more on application.
I am looking at this book:
I have found it for $25. Has anyone ever used this book?
I accidently posted that last comment twice. Whoops.
The book I used was by Kenneth Rosen - Discrete Mathematics and its Applications 5e. I can't really say if it's a great book or not, but it equips you with pretty much the necessary tools needed to know the material.
Frogpad: I also hated the class. Some stuff was interesting (especially the number theory and graph theory material), but I really disliked the combinatoric section (just not something I'm a fan of).
The book I used, "Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics, an Applied Introduction" by Ralph P. Grimaldi (5e) is pretty comprehensive and includes a lot of extra material for further study.
