GTM Hungerford’s Algebra vol 73†

Hungerfords Algebra
Hungerford's Algebra

For some reason, our Algebra prof gave us 40 problems to solve. They are all in the first chapter and review comprehensively what I’ve learned in past algebra and algebraic structures classes. Still, 40 exercises, that’s a lot. Seeing as Hungerford’s book is pretty much a reference for graduate students in algebra, I was looking around for solutions to all of the problems since I am unsure if our prof will give us any or if he will give us hints.

I found Dr. James Wilson’s book on Hungerford’s problem sets. It’s available for free here. If it’ no longer there, you can launch a google search and you should find it easily enough.

Midterms are in week 9 and we’ve just finished week 3.
