This book was required for my Discrete Mathematics course. Unfortunately the way the material is presented is difficult to understand. I found myself looking for other resources to help me on topics I was stuck on. While I don't doubt the author's expertise, I had a hard time interpreting methods in which to solve problems in the chapter reviews, as if there was a piece of the puzzle always missing.
