I'v decided to take up physical science degree as my further studies..But there is more than a year to get into the university. So I have planned to invest my time on selfstudies before the enrollment. Here is the page which have the mathematic course modules I'm going to take. I would like to finish reading all the first year( Physical Science Level 1 )Course Modules and to continue on before the enrollment..as I'm hard working and with the help of the forum I think that it would not be so hard for me.. So what I need is some books to follow.. I found some over there on amazon...hope you people suggest me some books... I don't have a lot of money to invest on new books so I would stick to used old editions...plus as I am far away USA only few up there ships the books to me.. Here's what I found, For calculus
For algebra
I find a much cheaper version of Stewart's called paperback:student edition.Is it a abridged version giving less info ? It also weighs 3 times smaller than the hardcover format. Also we have, Sets and Combinatorics Differential Equations I Vectors Matrices Graph Theory Geometry with Applications for the 1st year.. Any books covering these ? Anyway... I would be able to purchase only 2 or 3 books as I'm going to add 2 or 3 chemistry books to my shopping cart which has about $100 dollar limit (you know shipping costs a lot) as I've not got sufficient money to sign a big deal. So please also tell me the best combination of books that I can survive on for a long time with the money I've got right now. Thanks in advance !

Hello i don't really know what to tell you about the other books but as for calculus personally i would suggest TOM M. APOSTOL Calculus(one variable calculus ,with an introduction to linear algebra) and vol2 if you could find it(if not google "calculus tom m. apostol pdf" maybe you'll find an ebook version). I am using this book now as a calculus refresher(and possibly more) and i find it useful so far.Another great book that i would recommend is "Naive Set Theory" by Paul R. Halmos.Also check Topics in Algebra by Herstein and Abstract Algebra although i can't really tell you how they are because they're on my to do list too.Good luck, hope i was of some assistance.
