I have just finished the book "C C Pinter - A Book of Abstract Algebra". My aim is to reach to the level of the book "T W Hungerford - Algebra". Hungerford's book is not only too advanced to study after Pinter's, but also I don't think that it is a readable book at all for a self-learner like me. Please someone tell me a book for abstract algebra more advanced than Pinter's book but readable esp. for self-learning . Thanks a lot.
You might want to try Dummit and Foote. It covers [roughly] the same material as Hungerford (a phenomenal text, BTW), but is about 3 times bigger, i.e. it is much more "wordy."
A very good book would be J. B. Fraleigh's A First Course in Abstract Algebra. It contains very good exercises and the concepts are clearly explained
