Aug 10, Beau rated it really liked it Shelves: mathematics , nonfiction , mathematics-textbooks , 4-stars , finished-in An excellent introduction to abstract algebra. The strength is clearly the problem sets.
There are many problems with difficulty ranging from very easy to very hard.
The exposition is easy to follow. Most proofs are very clear. However, this is probably not the most friendly book for the average math major--it would take a lot of hard work to absorb all the material. Jul 05, Jacob rated it it was amazing Shelves: mathematics.

I found it exceptionally useful for learning basic Abstract Algebra. The mathematics is presented in a very enlightening way. Now that I've moved beyond this material it is not as useful anymore. And I don't ever use this book as a reference. However, I recommend this book to anyone learning Abstract Algebra. Jun 18, Eric rated it liked it. This might be a difficult book if used as an introduction to abstract algebra. Problems vary in difficulty and the text moves quickly. Well-written otherwise and should be enjoyable for students who have a strong understanding of the material.

I give instructors permission to make copies of this material, either electronic or paper, and give or sell those to students. Please don't order used or unofficial copies since they can have significantly different content and pagination.
With the current edition at pretty much the price of media, any savings from old versions are tiny compared to the cost of confusion, particularly confusion to me since I get contacted about already-fixed bugs. The current version says "Third edition" on the front cover it also says Jan at the end of the Preface. For instructors who want to modify the text. Please, feel free.
But as a favor I ask that you include a statement about your modifications. That way people making reports know who to write. I am glad to hear from both teachers and students. I enjoy hearing about the experience that folks have with the book and I find suggestions helpful, especially bug reports.
I save these and periodically revise. If you have something that you are able to share back then I'd be glad to take a look. For instance, I would love to have a topic on Machine Learning, or some sub-topic such as dimension reduction. Of course, I reserve the ability to choose whether to edit or include it. I gratefully acknowledge all the contributions that I use, or I can keep you anonymous. In particular, I would welcome exams or problem sets. Some instructors have questions about using a text where the answers to the exercises are downloadable.
I can't resist noting that for any widely-available text any college student can get from the Internet copies of the answers.

Also, in the past I tried witholding the answers and asking class instructors to email me for copies but that left me trying to determine identity via email, which is just not practical. Thus additional sets of exercises without answers would answer the requests of some instructors.
