Dislike the textbook. Not very helpful ways to approach the certain problems. There needs to be more examples in the book, so future students are able to learn better to solve problems. Never go for this textbook. Instead, go for the different logic textbook, like Mendelson's textbook, if you are taking Math Logic course.

I love terse books, but even for me this book is too terse. It could really benefit from additional samples and explanations. Read full review
