hey I am going to take the graduate algebra 1 and 2 classes as an undergrad and am trying to buy a book and start reading to be prepared.

algebra 1 is listed to include

Groups with operators, homomorphism and isomorphism theorems, normal series, Sylow theorems, free groups, Abelian groups, rings, integral domains, fields, modules. Topics may include HOM (A,B), Tensor products, exterior algebra

the recommended book is https://www.amazon.com/dp/0471433349/?tag=pfamazon01-20

same book for algebra 2 but the topics are

Field theory, Galois theory, multilinear algebra. Further topics from: Dedekind domains, Noetherian domains, rings with minimum condition, homological algebra

so should I just go with that book or is there a good classic text I can use for self study and just buy this one if the prof assigns homework from it. from the reviews it seems to be a solid book and even for self study it should be good. just wanted to hear what you guys think.

thanks
