This answers my question very well.

Christopher Burgess rated it it was amazing May 01, Topics in Algebra is the more advanced book. Hurt my brain; loved it. It is the one you will need to master to prepare for graduate work.

Email Required, but never shown. Mar 09, Kevin Greenan rated it really liked it. Kushal Bhuyan 4, 2 12 Thank you very much. Is one of the two Hersteins a sequel to the other, that is, are they meant to be read in a particular order? Would you recommend or not recommend to read both Hersteins?

Abstract Algebra : I. N. Herstein :

This book is easier to understand than the previous book by I. If you have a good teacher, then this book is fine. So my question is: The more advanced and more generally well-accepted book is Topics algrbra Algebra. I will recommend you to start with Topics if you like to.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. It’s always a good idea to read more especially in mathematicsbut generally I would advise a to read more than one author and b to read something other than Herstein’s Abstract Algebra.

I found it exceptionally useful for learning basic Abstract Algebra. I wanted to figure out whether one is more advanced than the other or whether one is sequel to the other. But it’s kind of confusing because for example in just the group theory part, in one book there is a chapter ”Factor groups” whereas in the other book the chapter is called ”Normal subgroups and Quotient groups”.


From inside the book. I cannot tell how much overlap there is. I don’t think is the best text for learning the material, but it could be worse. Return to Book Page.

Abstract Algebra

If you want to read another abstract algebra textbook at the same time, I would recommend reading Herstein’s Topics in Algebra and Fraleigh’s A First Course in Abstract Algebra together.

Christopher Farah rated it really liked it Nov 08, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. To add to this point, Topics in Algebra is highly recommended on the Chicago undergraduate mathematics bibliographywhile Abstract Algebra isn’t mentioned.

He algebga on a variety of areas of algebra, including ring theory, with over research papers and over a dozen books. The mathematics is presented in a very enlightening way. Dispatched from the UK in 3 business wbstract When will my order arrive?
