    thanks devious_
    are those books good for self study? i haven't done number theory before. i wanted to study it myself. so before i buy any books i need to know if they are good for a beginner like me.
    thanks again.

    Yes they are. The first one has full solutions to all its exercises at the back.

    Well... I have Elementry Number Theory by Burton, but I Think the book could have been done better.
