Free Math Knowledge For People (Like Me), Who Suck At Math

Oct 28 2008 | 12:04 pm

Hello Everyone,

If you read a post i done a few weeks ago. It was a post about info on getting some good math knowledge, with recommendations to what would be good in learning better math that can coincide with Max.

Anyhow, i did order the Mathematics for Non-mathematicians, which was cheap.

But have also came across a good other source of Math knowledge, that i think people would be very interested in. Especially since you want to do Math with Music, more or less.

This is a .pdf download book, but also hardback and paperback copies can be bought. The .pdf is free.
I have just started reading it and already is very interesting the the annals of Math with Music.

It is about 10mb, so this is why there is a link to download instead of me just posting it up

Great tip, thank you very much!

The author, Dave Benson, states, that many outdated versions of his book are offered for download elsewhere, so it should be emphasized again, that an up-to-date version can only be found at

Greta to see that many people are digging the .pdf

I too suck at math, apart from some basic stuff. But compared to a pre-schooler, i am really bad, hahaha

If you want to know where i found it. I was on Amazon, looking at the Musimathics books. I looked at Volume 1, saw the review for it. And the guy who reviewed it, said that Musimathics was a bit of a waste of money, mainly because of errors and the such.
Then said about this .pdf, and how it is better, plus free.
