Most important book: Cormen (its not only for maths, but for general important algorithms)

Combinatorial Problems and Exercises (9780821842621): Laszlo Lovasz

Combinatorics: Topics, Techniques, Algorithms by Peter J. Cameron

now i started reading Cormen but it is so difficult to understand topics to beginners like me & you imho, so i would suggest learn c/c++ and start coding. learn the algo on the way

You need to now books with these titeles, find them in libraries:

1-Data structure.
2-Algorithim.
Topics suggested to start with: Pesudo Code.
