Clear and to the point

I am trying to catch up on lost ground on computer programming. For me there were some concepts in my knowledge of maths which fell into two categories. Either I did not know or had forgotten. This book has easily filled both of these gaps. The text is fun to read and takes the strain out of the concepts for mathematics. It introduces new thoughts and ways of managing the solutions of many types of mathematical problems. I highly recommend it for anyone trying to learn the concepts for the first time, or refresh their knowledge as I am doing. The book has achieved for me all that was said in the short summaries I found on the internet.

Math for Computer Science

This book should be read by everyone who's serious about computers. It will give you the necessary background to work on optimization software, cryptographic algorithms, analysis of algorithms and several other subjects that are far beyond just "writing programs".
It is not an easy book, however. You have to read carefully and slowly, and you will need time to work on the exercises. But it is well worth it.
