What are the best books to prepare this test?
admin, 2017/07/26 13:20
Cracking the GRE Subject (Mathematics) is good book to review the topics. There are also MCQs in that Book. For Algebra "Contemporary Abstract Algebra" by Joseph A. Gallian is good book. One need to understand the definition and do as much examples as you can. Also understand the statements of the theorem (without proof) and then see its applications.
