I'm currently writing a statement of purpose for graduate school application. I would like to know the best way to present the list of books that I have independently studied.
I wrote the following paragraph:
I taught myself mathematics by studying some textbooks in depth. I would like to mention a few: 1) Hatcher's, May's, and Spanier's Algebraic topology" 2) Griffiths', and Fulton's books on Algebraic geometry
Every item in that list corresponds to the books that I have studied in a certain subject.
I would like to know if this is a good way to present it.
