For the algebra itself, it also gets on well with Rotman's "Galois Theory" and MacDonald's out-of-print introduction to AG, "Algebraic Geometry - Introduction to Schemes", besides being the perfect preamble in commutative algebra to the books of Mumford and Hartshorne. A gem.
In addition to introducing "all" necessary subjects in commutative algebra, the book is stuffed with really good exercises. I always come back to this book - looking up terms and definitions and proofs. And of course, taking it with me on holidays so I can work on the exercises :).
It still covers the relevant material and I am pretty sure this is the standard text for most. Eisenbud's much larger text is a good reference but is not as good as this for an introduction.
I am reviewing this book because of the printing quality of this edition. I am outraged. The cost of the printing is clearly below 2 pounds and the book is barely readable. Yet it is being sold for 40 pounds. This is an insult to both the reader and the authors.
What annoys me most is that I realised too late that I could return it even though it arrived undamaged. I want my money back. This is a disgrace.
