Getting familiar with proofs?

  1. Jul 30, 2006 #1
    I'll be starting university in just over a month. The school I'm going to has advanced section classes that basically cover the first year math classes (Algebra and Calculus) in a more rigorous fashion than what is usually offered to first year math students. I am interested in taking part of these courses, and was wondering what kind of books I should look into to get me a head start.

    I ordered the book on Amazon (I'm in Canada so I had to buy the book for more than $4 :P) and it should be arriving shortly. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I suggest you grab the Calculus by Michael Spivak, good book for a introduction to analysis.
