I've already purchased Walter Rudin's "Mathematical Analysis" from hearing a few praises.

Thanks.

It is

Introduction to Topology and Modern Analysis by Simmons, George F.

Elements of Point-Set Topology (Dover Books on Advanced Mathematics)

Totaling a little over $20 shipped. Not too shabby. These with Baby Rudin should occupy those boring summer days nicely.

Topology Now! seems like a good book too. I will shop around to try and find it for a lower price. Thanks galactus.

My personal favorite is "Advanced Particle Theory for Dummies".

If you wish to check out the math books at MAA, go to http://www.maa.org

They have nice books on many math topics.

Personally, I do not like Dover books. Though they are inexpensive, they are reprints over old textbooks and can be hard to follow unless you're at graduate level, and then it can be difficult.

But for only four bucks, I see it as a low-risk investment . BTW, when I took Calculus for the first time I actually bought "The Idiots Guide to Calculus" and "Calculus for Dummies." THAT was not a smart investment. Totally useless, at least in conjunction my professors.
