*Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology*to me. My knowledge of algebraic topology is at the level of Munkres' book. Would Bott & Tu's book be too advanced for me to understand at this stage?

Have you been submitted to an introduction to manifolds yet? If not, Tu has written a book on that specifically to serve as a bridge between undergrad level math and an appropriate level to read Bott-Tu. It is called "An introduction to manifolds".

You know, Munkres has written (at least) two books on topology: 'Topology' (the most well-known one with a lot of point-set topology and a bit of algebraic topology), and 'Elements Of Algebraic Topology'. Probably you meant the first one?My knowledge of algebraic topology is at the level of Munkres' book. Would Bott & Tu's book be too advanced for me to understand at this stage?

I have been meaning to read Boot & Tu myself, I have heard great things about it.
