Although mathematics majors are usually conversant with number theory by the time they have completed a course in abstract algebra, other undergraduates, especially those in education and the liberal arts, often need a more basic introduction to the topic.

overall good book, should offer more background and examples similar to the homework questions asked. I'm finding this book to be interestingly challenging
accessible for most people with a basic math vocabulary. overall interesting - especially if you like math and if you're looking for a good reference on number theory.
