A First Course in Complex Analysis
Adapted from chapters 17-20 of Advanced engineering mathematics, 2nd ed., this undergraduate textbook focuses on the calculus of functions of a complex variable, presenting only proofs of the major results in the subject. The authors (Loyola Marymount University) cover complex functions as mappings

A book full of intuition, better than most(or all) the other complex analysis books out there. Although it is not useful for someone studying theoretical mathematics(although it might be just to understand what the hell you are doing--but there are not many proofs here, only the ones that are not huge and contribute to the understanding), it is a gem for someone studying applied mathematics, physics, engineering, etc. It has graphs where it needs to have, it offers explanations on nearly every c ...more

Recommends it for: Math majors and others so inclined
This book was a fairly good introduction to the study of the complex numbers and functions of the complex numbers. One annoying feature that it had was that there were times that it stated a theorem and then proceeded without giving a proof of the theorem, not even in the appendices. Other than that however it's useful and instructive.
