    Hey Maths Boy and welcome to the forums.

    The question is: why Harvard?

    There are lots of resources to learn mathematics, and many of them are top notch: you don't have to get one specific resource that will be better than everything else.

    What background do you have? Have you taken calculus?

    This question gets asked a bit and from other threads, the suggestion of taking linear algebra can help put a concrete perspective on the abstract stuff in abstract algebra.

    Have you taken linear algebra?

    ^They were using the first edition (a much prettier cover imo). Contents are not too different I think but idk about problem numbering.
