The problems in each section are increadibily higher skilled than the examples and almost impossible to get the right answers. Some problems are even leagues away of what the examples imply and you would have never guessed where the answers on the back of the book came from.
On the bright side, the book has lots and lots of examples as well as even more examples through the exercises. This has been invaluable. Over all, in the grand scheme of Math proof and CS theory texts, this one is pretty decent.
Its still a text book.
Unless you are required to take this book, my opinion is to find a completely different book. One where the subject matter is actually taught, not simply briefly explained.
Also, as to the teacher here calling people average for not understanding this book... You're a douche.
The examples and overall wording of the book is horrible. It is for entry level classes in this area and the reading is now where near that level. The content is hardly skimmed over and examples and exercises leave you confused on where the answers even came from. Most examples skip from problem to solution with no middle steps and variables/symbols that appear from nowhere.
