- 18.100B Not used. The actual requirement is some comfort with proofs and rigor.
- Artin - Generally a good book. Exactly the same as lectures (when Artin is teaching)
I found the material (group theory, geometry, linear algebra) extremely interesting, and the lectures clear and engaging (Artin). Problem sets are difficult, but not worth much of your grade. Quizzes are easy and worth most of your grade.
