    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Hrbacek and Jech is very good, and covers a lot of stuff. But if you only want the basics, a book on proofs may be sufficient, for example "Book of proof" by Richard Hammack or "How to prove it" by Velleman. (I know that the former is good, and there's a free online version if you want to check it out. I'm not familiar with the latter, but it seems to be very popular).

    Nah, I want somwething that is pretty rigorous. And I'll check out the one with the problems, I find that they help me know if I've understood the content. Thanks very much
