<div>There are two good books on Cryptography by experts</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>1) Applied Cyrptography&nbsp;- Bruce schneier .. (<a href="http://www.schneier.com/">www.schneier.com</a>)</div>
<div>2) Handbook of applied cryptography - A<font face="cmr12">. Menezes, P. van Oorschot, and S. Vanstone. </font></div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>Both are good books but for a bit advanced reader. But as you have mentioned that you need mathematics first, try doing some applied maths first. try to study calculus and partial fractions. </div>

&gt; finally I&#39;ve made-up my mind that I&#39;ll no more be ignorant and I&#39;ll<br>&gt; work towards enhancing my mathematical skills required to understand<br>&gt; the cryptography language, algorithms and relations.<br>
&gt;<br>&gt; &nbsp;My humble request to everybody is to guide on what aspect or which<br>&gt; mathematical subject that I&#39;am supposed to focus on.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; &nbsp;Thank you and hoping to find a path ahead.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Regards,<br>
