Excellent Abstract Algebra Book - Simple explanation yet cover wide scope
DON'T BUY THIS BOOK
this book is out of date
Full of errors The reason I did not give it one star was I like Schaum book's style: definition, then example, then exercise, then answer at the end (this one doesn't have). In sum, you can't use this book for any purpose, except as one reviewer pointed out, the errors really~~ make you think about the concept. But before you can do that, you should already know some basic abstract algebra and have a logic mind.~ ... Read more |

Very good
Not perfect but still very nice While it's not perfect, I'm very happy with the book for my somewhat limited purposes. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars, but I'll be generous and round to 4 since I can't.
A Readable Intro to Algebra Deskins includes enough exercises to get a good mental grasp of the ideas.The level of difficult ranges from the very easy, definition checking problems to the sort of challenging.I say "sort of challenging" because none of the more difficult problems seem to be quite as difficult as the most difficult problems in other books.However, I have no experience with other algebra books, so this may be a characteristic of the subject. All in all, I highly recommend the book as a text for teaching yourself abstract algebra.It is very readable and the well-chosen exercises help you understand the material.
It's a two-sided thing. Now, on the other hand,this book is, hands down, the cheapest abstract algebra book you will everfind (again, this is a trait of Dover). When I bought this book on Amazon,I searched for "Abstract Algebra", and despaired when I sawprices like $80.00, $90.00, etc. To find a good textbook for under $20.00is a godsend. So, basically, if you're willing to put some effort intothis book and plow through it (and it's no more dense, really, than mostmath textbooks), it's very rewarding.

Editorial Review Product Description The American Mathematical Monthly recommended this advanced undergraduate-level text for teacher education. It starts with groups, rings, fields, and polynomials and advances to Galois theory, radicals and roots of unity, and solution by radicals. Numerous examples, illustrations, commentaries, and exercises enhance the text, along with 13 appendices. 1971 edition. Customer Reviews (7)

Editorial Review Product Description This traditional treatment of abstract algebra is designed for the particular needs of the mathematics teacher. Readers must have access to a Computer Algebra System (C. A. S.) such as Maple, or at minimum a calculator such as the TI 89 with C. A. S. capabilities. Includes “To the Teacher” sections that Draw connections from the number theory or abstract algebra under consideration to secondary mathematics. Provides historical context with “From the Past” sections in each chapter. Features “Worksheets” that outline the framework of a topic in most chapters. A useful reference for mathematics teachers who need to brush up on their abstract algebra skills.

Editorial Review Product Description A completely reworked new edition of this superb textbook. This key work is geared to the needs of the graduate student. It covers, with proofs, the usual major branches of groups, rings, fields, and modules. Its inclusive approach means that all of the necessary areas are explored, while the level of detail is ideal for the intended readership. The text tries to promote the conceptual understanding of algebra as a whole, doing so with a masterful grasp of methodology. Despite the abstract subject matter, the author includes a careful selection of important examples, together with a detailed elaboration of the more sophisticated, abstract theories. Customer Reviews (5)
has great potential, but could use a second edition.
Full of Insight
Not recommended
Excellent intermediate text On some subjects, it is more of a survey of topics (such as category theory, universal algebras, exterior products), the point of which only becomes clear after one needs to use these tools in other areas. If you are new to the subject, however, the texts by Dummit and Foote or Fraleigh, e.g., are more appropriate.
