Thanks Bunches!

I recieved it very quickly and it was in great shape! Thanks so much!!! : ]

Excellent Textbook

This textbook is a very good introduction to mathematical computer science. The content is written clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. There are lots of examples and assessment problems, with several levels of difficulty. There is also lots of interesting information in the book such as biographies of important mathematicians and real-world examples of what's being taught. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that some sections are very wordy, which makes for much more reading than should be necessary.

The "Violin" Book of Discrete Mathematics

This book easily ranks as my favorite lower-division math/computer science textbook. Aside from its omission of elementary coding theory, this book contains just about every important discrete mathematical topic (logic, sets, functions, algorithms, complexity, combinatorics, relations, graphs, Boolean algebra, formal language theory) that a beginning student should be introduced to. Plenty of examples in each section that reflect the end-of-section exercises. Very well organized in that key definitions, rules, and theorems are boxed and well highlighted. Concepts are well explained and reinforced with numerous examples.And most importantly, plenty of engaging problems that range from trivial to quite challenging. Applications to areas such as computer science are in abundance. But most enjoyable for me are the numerous biographical sketches of important discrete mathematicians. All around an excellent text, and one I had been searching for since my days as a freshman in college when I had wondered when, as a math major, I would ever get to the fun stuff: logic, graphs, codes, etc.. Little did I know that I would have to wait 17 years as a professor at the same college to finally get to it.

A must have companion to Rosen's book

The other reviewer was obviously talking about "Discrete Math and Its Applications," which is the actual text book. This book is the student solutions guide for that text. So don't buy this book thinking that it is a text book, because this book was only meant to suppliment the text.I found that this guide was a must have companion to "Discrete Math and Its Applications." It has the worked out solutions to many of the exercises in the text, which is very helpful. All-in-all, a definite must-have suppliment to the text.

The best math text I've ever used!

I'm taking a course in discrete math at Monmouth University. I was really worried about the course, but this textbook helps make discrete interesting and understandable. The author motivates the subject with so many relevant applications that he's made me understand why the subject is important for computer science. The biographies are great too. I've also checked out the Web site and it's awesome. When I've had trouble with exercises, I've found the Student Solutions Guide to be really, really helpful. This is just about the only math textbook that I ever could read and understand.
