 Amazon.ca: Books: The Symmetric Group: Representations, Combinatorial Algorithms, and Symmetric Functions (Site not responding. Last check: 20071106) 
  Introduces the theory of the symmetric group, using three different points of view: general representation theory, combinatorial algorithms, and symmetric functions. 
  I completed all of the exercises, so it is wellpaced for this kind of study. 
  I started with only an introductory knowledge of group theory, so it is selfcontained.
