by Thomas W. Hungerford

Cover of the book

As a means of controlling textbook costs, this class will use the (discontinued) 2nd Edition of the text named above.  That means it is no longer available from the publisher and may not be available in our campus bookstore.  As of May 2016, there are many used copies available on the internet.  However, if this edition is used in other schools in the fall, the number of available copies may suddenly drop.  Therefore, it is highly recommended that students order a copy as early as possible.

Don't Buy Any Edition of Hungerford's Abstract Algebra: an Introduction Except the 2nd Edition

no matter what you see at the book store or its website.   To help you find the correct edition, here are the ISBN numbers for the second edition:

ISBN-10: 0030105595      ...      ISBN-13: 9780030105593


It is important that every student have a copy of the text by the first day of class.
