    Reviewed by Victoria Bednar, Instructor, Virginia Commonwealth University on 8/12/22

    This text covers everything that would be useful for computer science students encountering discrete math for the first time. Many such texts are lacking sections of either probability or combinatorics, while this text includes both. The section... read more

    Reviewed by Oscar Levin, Associate Professor, University of Northern Colorado on 5/13/21

    The text covers a nice range of topics useful for a student of computer science, including sets, relations and functions, logics and basic proof techniques, basic counting (combinations and permutations), probability, number bases, and some basic... read more

    Reviewed by O'Neill Kingston, Assistant Professor, Clarke University on 1/11/21

    Comprehensiveness is not necessarily the point of the text, as it is principally concerned with offering Computer Science students an entrance into discrete mathematics that meshes well with CS courses they are likely to have taken. The chapter... read more
