Re: Books

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.

Re: Books

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

many others

Re: Books

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".
