This book is written with the author’s conviction that “it is easier to build a course from a base than to extract it from a big book.”

The five chapters deal with fundamentals, groups, rings, matrix rings, and linear algebra. Despite the small size there is enough material for a full year. Many of the easy proofs are left as exercises. An instructor using this book should expect to add examples and build on the structure provided.
