Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications Seventh Edition 7th Edition
Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications is intended for one or two term introductory Discrete Mathematics courses taken by students from a wide variety of majors, including Computer Science, Mathematics, and Engineering. This renowned best-selling text, which has been used at over 500 institutions around the world, gives a focused introduction to the primary themes in a Discrete Mathematics course and demonstrates the relevance and practicality of Discrete Mathematics to a wide variety of real-world applications―from Computer Science to Data Networking, to Psychology, to Chemistry, to Engineering, to Linguistics, to Biology, to Business, and many other important fields.
McGraw-Hill's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

Part of the difficulty associated with this book is that an "introduction to discrete mathematics" is by nature a smorgasbord of different subjects: probability, algorithm analysis, number theory, graph theory, and combinatorics to name several. The goal for an appropriate textbook is to introduce each subject thoroughly yet within a certain number of pages. I think Rosen has done a fine job, and although the book is around 1000 pages long and weighs a ton, I felt that as a student I was introduced to each subject thoroughly enough.
The binding, paper, and printing seem high quality and have held up under repeated use. I took off one star for the price (It is good, but not really worth $200).
1. Plenty of examples and explanations of the material.
2. Hundreds of exercises ranging from the very basic to the rigorous.
3. Generally good explanations.
4. Covers everything, very in depth. Focus on both the abstract, theoretical as well as the computational and applied.
1. Some examples are not clear enough, especially to those without a strong foundation in mathematics.
2. There needs to be an answers book to complement this because some of the answers at the back are not clear enough.
3. Can get too abstract, which is uninteresting to students who just want to learn the coding elements as well as the logic.
All in all, highly recommended even for leisure reading.
