Working on Rotman, Chapter 3: 'Commutative Rings I', I often scan ahead. Today I looked at Computational Commutative Algebra 1.

"... This is one of the most refreshing mathematical books I have ever held in my hands. The authors do not believe in teaching by spreading out the material, but they introduce it via questions and discussions, they explore it in an intuitive fashion, exercise it through well-chosen examples, and start the reader on his own expeditions through numerous "tutorials", i.e., guided projects. This is academic teaching at its best: if I had not seen it, I should not have believed that it can be done so well. ... In conclusion, this book gives students a stimulating introduction to commutative algebra very much geared to their need, and it provides numerous useful ideas to those who teach the subject." (H.Stetter, IMN - Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 2003, Vol. 57, Issue 193)
