I want to study Artificial Intelligence from Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Russell and Norvig, in the mid-year vacation. I want to get prepared before diving into the book so I decided to review some relevant subjects like Discrete Mathematics. I know there is a good book for Discrete Mathematics by Kenneth. H. Rosen and bought it. But I don't know about any other books to read before studying AI.

Can someone give me book suggestions?

  • $\begingroup$ I suggest you just read the book you want to read (AIMA) and look up anything you find you need to know. $\endgroup$ – David Richerby Jan 6 '15 at 15:32
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidRicherby I'll try to read AIMA first but I'm not sure my background is enough. I hope it is. Thanks for the comment. $\endgroup$ – floydian Jan 6 '15 at 17:37

Probability theory is also extremely important for artificial intelligence. A textbook I very much recommend on this subject is Probability, Statistics, and Stochastic Processes by Olofsson and Andersson.

Many areas of artificial intelligence, particularly those concerning image processing of some sort, also make good use of linear algebra. For this, I recommend Linear Algebra by Spence, Insel, and Friedberg, or Linear Algebra Done Right by Axler if you want a more pure mathematics approach.
