1.0 out of 5 stars Not the most helpful textbook, 30 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Schaum's Outline of Group Theory (Schaum's Outline Series) (Paperback)
The authors obviously know a lot about their subject field and I'm not here to point out any mistakes from the book. My experience with this book is largely due to the fact that I am currently enrolled on an undergraduate mathematics degree in England. Unfortunately, the courses (with regards to algebra at least) are notably different depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on and I'm not just talking about the use of different symbols and Greek letters.

I found the layout of the book quite frustrating and difficult to use and quite often I had to search for hours on end to find something remotely close to what I wanted to look for. In summary, I believe that there are plenty of better textbooks available for British undergraduates on group theory (or any British students for that matter) and they are worth paying the extra £10-20 for.
