I would have been better off without a book. Here's an example of what's in the book: Blah blah blah and blah so blah blah and therefore, henceto and henceforth blah, wasting your time blah. So you can clearly see that we have proven that blah and blah blah are true.
I mean really, how much do you want to pay for that? Right next to Statistics, this was my least favorite subject in college. The examples were sometimes not very clear or helpful, it's like the author assumed you knew what he was talking about.
On the surface, discreet math seems genius but when you really dig deeper, it seems like it was developed by people that just had too much time on their hands.
Seriously, some of the material makes very little sense. One person found this helpful. Paperback Verified download. Terrible printing and poor paper quality. On some page the printing is even half on the table so I will never know what it says in the missing part. I don't know if it's the same for every other book.
Contents are okay.
It has what a basic introduction should have. My issue with this book is that it is not very helpful if you are learning on your own. I'm taking an online Discrete course independent study and I've found that I have to visit the instructor often in order to get concepts explained to me.
Oftentimes, the examples in the book have very little to do with the problem sets, and the examples are not explained very well, making it overly difficult to pick up on concepts. In addition, the book includes a lot of biographies of mathematicians, which means the book is longer than it should be. I would rather the author devoted page space to explaining the concepts and giving meaningful examples. I have gone as far as to download an instructor's solution guide, just so that I can try to understand some of the examples the student solution guide is another review.
Expect that you will need to download some kind of supplemental materials. If you're just wanting to learn this on your own, don't choose this book. Instructors Choose a Different One. This was probably one of the worst-written textbooks I've used.
Each chapter's example text was unnecessarily obfuscated with background text about historical figures, and the examples themselves were often too simple to help with the homework if you were having trouble or conversely, the homework questions were significantly harder than the example text.
I still managed to get an "A" for anyone doubting my effort , but it was without any thanks to this book! You'd be better off learning the concepts from the internet.

Discrete Mathematics and its Applications is a focused introduction to the primary themes in a discrete mathematics course, as introduced through extensive applications, expansive discussion, and detailed exercise sets. These themes include mathematical reasoning, combinatorial analysis, discrete structures, algorithmic thinking, and enhanced problem-solving skills through Discrete Mathematics and its Applications is a focused introduction to the primary themes in a discrete mathematics course, as introduced through extensive applications, expansive discussion, and detailed exercise sets.
These themes include mathematical reasoning, combinatorial analysis, discrete structures, algorithmic thinking, and enhanced problem-solving skills through modeling.
Its intent is to demonstrate the relevance and practicality of discrete mathematics to all students. The Fifth Edition includes a more thorough and linear presentation of logic, proof types and proof writing, and mathematical reasoning. This enhanced coverage will provide students with a solid understanding of the material as it relates to their immediate field of study and other relevant subjects.
The inclusion of applications and examples to key topics has been significantly addressed to add clarity to every subject. True to the Fourth Edition, the text-specific web site supplements the subject matter in meaningful ways, offering additional material for students and instructors.
Discrete math is an active subject with new discoveries made every year. The continual growth and updates to the web site reflect the active nature of the topics being discussed. The book is appropriate for a one- or two-term introductory discrete mathematics course to be taken by students in a wide variety of majors, including computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

More filters. Sort order. Oct 29, Erik rated it it was ok. I'm convinced that math gurus are incapable of teaching math. For the unwashed: Underpants Gnomes stole underwear from the residents of South Park hoping that they'd profit from the thefts, but although their business plan included a Phase 1 "Steal underwear" and a Phase 3 "Make a profit" , Phase 2—the connective tissue—was just "?
Rosen and others like him fail to grasp how much "? He'll describe a math concept using almost-but-not-quite human language, then—oh, there's always a "then" with these books—the math gymnastics begin. Math teachers can't resist the gymnastics, can they? No, they really can't. At some point they lose their ability to see how much they assume other people know, and when that happens they cease being effective at teaching. This describes almost every math teacher I've had, and it definitely describes almost every math textbook that I've read.
Rosen's book isn't the worst math textbook that I've read, but it's still pretty awful. Seriously, corner cases and extreme mind-bending problems don't help people learn math; giving students time to grasp concepts before baffling them with bullshit does. This stuff can be taught, but not like this. View all 6 comments. Half a decade of my life dedicated to this. Dec 07, Eli rated it it was ok Recommends it for: It's written for computer scientists, so doesn't go heavy on the proofs and exact arguments, definitions, theorems, results, etc.
Math people will probably be frustrated at the lack of depth, verbose yet fuzzy explanations, and redundant examples. You'll probably want something more concise. It's hard to figure out which problems are even worth doing. There are chapters where the vast majority of the text is just examples of the concept in action; in the graph theory chapter, there was a section with like 13 examples of basically the same thing.

He knows he knows this subject well and he wants to impress you all the time. I think I will keep learning from the book and I would say all in all it's a good textbook. I really want to know more about discrete probability sooner rather than later.
Jun 12, Pedro Montoto rated it it was amazing Shelves: Best book on theoretic and Computer Science-applied mathematics. Dec 01, Dragify rated it it was amazing Shelves: The instances in which I was not very satisfied with this book have been very, very little so far. Or perhaps there was never one of them. Quite frankly, differently from what I heard from several other reviews, I never had particular issues at either reading or following this book, except for the not uncommon overtime sometimes needed for finishing some of the exercises.
Aug 12, Samuel Gompers rated it it was amazing. Discrete Mathematics is a field of study integral to the Computer Sciences. It lays the foundations for mathematical thinking in its coverage of proofs, it dives into relevant aspects of application ranging from recursive algorithm structure to modelling networks and efficient systems architecture for modern computing. It was a fascinating read half of the chapters and performed many of the exercises.

Go to textbook for Discrete Math. Jul 23, Parsa rated it liked it. The book has 13 chapters and, There are better books describing each chapter algorithms being a clear example. However, if you are short on time or money, or just want a good introduction to each topic before you explore them at full length later, this book will do.
There is nothing really "bad" about this book. The applications, although certainty not bad, are far too simplified or s read through most of this the past month.
