Our text is a good one, although we will want to supplement it at times
with material from other sources. Each section has a summary at the
beginning, which should help you coordinate your studies. There also is a
"theoretical matters" section for each chapter that acts somewhat as a
review of the chapter and adds more mathematical analysis; we will
incorporate material from these sections while we learn the material rather
than saving it up for the end of the chapter.
The text includes examples written in pseudo-code, and some actual code in
FORTRAN and C, plus material about MATLAB, Mathematica and Maple, so there
is a lot of useful information available here. There are solutions in the
back of the book for some of the problems, so you might want to look there
when you are working on your homework.
