There are new chapters on: binary trees and applications and languages, grammars, and automatas. It serves as a self-study review for computer science students and math majors.
From the Back Cover
Master discrete mathematics and ace your exams with this easy-to-use guide that reinforces problem-solving skills and reduces your study time! Students of discrete mathematics love Schaum's--the first edition of this book was a major bestseller--and this edition will show you why!
Schaum's Outline of Discrete Mathematics lets you focus on the problems that are at the heart of the subject. It cuts your study time by eliminating the extraneous material that clutters up so many textbooks.
As you study at your own pace, this guide shows you step by step how to solve the kind of problems you're going to find on your exams. It gives you hundreds of completely worked problems with full solutions. Hundreds of additional problems let you test your skills, then check the answers. And this edition features all the latest applications of discrete mathematics to computer science!
So if you want to get a firm handle on discrete mathematics--whether to ace your course or to build a solid basis for future work or study--there's no better tool than Schaum's. Schaum's is the premier college course outline-the one that's been trusted by generations of students--the one that's sold more than 30 million copies! This guide can be used as a supplement, to reinforce and strengthen the work you do with your class text. (It works well with virtually any discrete mathematics textbook.) But it is so comprehensive that it can be used alone as a text in discrete mathematics or as an independent study tool!

Only the important information is given, with no regard for mathematical elegance, but with much regard for the needs of a learner. The exercises and especially the worked examples, enable you to make sense of it all. Even the hilarious typos give you a sense of intellectual superiority and boost your confidence.
This title is an introduction, for the post A level student to discrete maths: set theory, logic etc. It could also help those university students who need to learn these subjects but whose mathematical training in school was weak.
