You should try NivenZuckermanMontgomery. Lots of exercises to work out.

Ireland & Rosen's NT intro is a perfect example of how editors mislead the public to sell books, there is nothing like "intro" in that book. The same goes for a bunch of "intro's", take Van Dalen's intro do logic, at least Ireland & Rosen is well done, clear and with many references, although the experience in algebra it demands obviously is not possessed by anyone who is not already quite familiar with number theory.

There is a very nice introduction to NT with answers to all exercises, and especial chapters on FLT and the Zeta Function: Elementary Number Theory (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series): Gareth A. Jones, Josephine M. Jones: 9783540761976: Amazon.com: Books Since it has answers to ALL exercises I think it is a good book to consult, it is very problemsolving oriented, so you get many techniques with work examples. Then, before Ireland&Rosen sort of book, another very didactic book on ALgebra is: http://www.amazon.com/BookAbstract.../dp/0486474178 This is the best possible value for the money.
