Dummit and Foote have a great text for Abstract Algebra. Durin is easier to follow, but also no where near as in depth as Dummit and Foote. Many people recommend Munkres for topology, but I haven't worked out of it. Calculus I, II, and III are covered by Stewart, this is what I learned from and it was fine. It also covers some analytic geometry (as all multivariable texts do), but not in depth.

Any (elementary) number theory, discrete math, or intro to proofs book will contain material on modular arithmetic. If you want to just learn modular arithmetic, I would go with sources on the web. Rutguers has an introduction, but there are

MIF, seems to be a forum bug, if I try to move the link "many others" up to the preceding paragraph, I get the error "BBC code cannot be nested in url tags".
