Can anyone recommend good, free online articles or books to learn Discrete mathematics? When I google'd for them, I came across few resources..but don't know whether they are good to start learning with. It's better to know a tutorial or a book that get you started in Discrete Mathematics. Can readers of SE Mathematics can suggest a good starting point?

See the suggestions given in… and…. – Larry Wang Sep 21 '10 at 8:11
This question is actually a superset of the first question I linked to above, so perhaps that one (about books) should be considered a duplicate of this? – Larry Wang Sep 21 '10 at 8:15

The UVic Discrete Mathematics Study Guide is also good for concise notes on the basics:

Try MIT Open Courseware -- Course 6.042J (Mathematics for Computer Science) on would be a good place to start.
