    Classic

    Herstein's book on algebra is a classic now. Herstein, a highly gifted expositor, provides a solid treatment of groups, rings, fields, a bit of galois theory, theory of vector spaces, linear transformations and matrices, and some special topics such as Wedderburn's, Jacobson's and Lagrange's four square theorem.

    Herstein conveys ideas through motivation, theory, examples and problems. A good book on abstract mathematics has to have interesting and illustrative problems, and this is where Her...

    Classic

    I wish all Mathematics books can be made like this one. Undoubtedly one of the best that I have read. I have also read Martin's book on the same topic but I would suggest this book. The text is easy to follow and the rigor that one looks for in a good book, startles you.

    Compact, self-contained textbook

    Compact and self-contained, this book takes off from where high mathematics left.It is extremely rewarding and yet, a bit terse and dry.It provides a good dashboard before diving into other areas.The linear algebra is not a problem with those exercises requiring linear algebra marked with a #.Secondly, the book is well-organised with a compact section on group theory occupying nearly 119 pages.Highly recommended for advanced high school students and undergraduates.
