    I'm bored and thinking i should probably do something worthwhile and read for uni next year. Can anyone recommend a good maths book to read preferably involving plenty of first year maths. I have a list of good ones so can you make a case for your recommendation please (cheers) :tsr:

    Mary Hart's guide to introductory real analysis is quite interesting.


    It seems to cover a large amount of any first year analysis course without resorting to excess use of symbols such as  \forall x \in \Re when it's not necessary but everything is intact and so you can focus on understanding concepts such as |a-a_{n}|<\epsilon rather than translating. Analysis seems to be a totally different style of math from what we're used to at A-Level.

    I haven't done a book report in a long long time so if you have any questions by all means please ask.
