This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.

Hi Ranchers, I would like to ask for advice as well as great sites on tutorials (especially quick starts), books, and other materials about Mathematics, particularly in Algebra and Calculus. I just think these two are needed the most or prerequisites before tackling computer theory, algorithms, discrete math, number theory, etc.. I have some traces in my memory of my undergraduate (BS Electronics and Communications Engineering) lessons, but I want to have a clean start. Thanks a million! Ex Animo Java! -- Val

val, do you have public libraries? i found a great series of books one time called...im not certain but i think....teach yourself algebra, teach yourself geometry, teach yourself calculus, etc......not certain of title, was a while back. but they were short paperbacks that seemed like they were written for people who just needed to relearn

Sorry I don't know of any sites, but I just had to have a little Algebra/Calculus fun. Mark

Hi Mark, Yeah, maybe I'm too serious about it Thanks for the reminder. Ex Animo Java! -- Val

Hi Randall, Thanks for the suggestion of going to a public library. But I think I'm too busy a man I'll just have to make do with the Internet (virtual libraries, why not?!). About the "Teach Yourself..." series, I'll check it out. But you know that lead me to remember another great series -- the Schaum's Outline series. Thanks! Ex Animo Java! -- Val
