An Introduction to Homological Algebra. Part IV of Lang’s ‘Algebra’, especially Chapter XX, covers almost everything you want to learn about homological algebra in a first course.
First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor. Applications include the following: A less well-known book is Vermani: Quite surprising for a simple appendix: The books by Rotman and Scott Osborne Basic Homological Algebra seem friendlier for students, but I like to have spectral sequences early on, not just in the last chapter. I like Rotman and particularly Weibel precisely because they DON’T do this-the connections with topology are strongly emphasized.
Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. I found it the most enlightening source when I started out learning homological algebra myself, and it remains the book that demystified diagram chases for me.

The second period, greatly in uenced by the work of A. Another nice set of rotkan notes is the one by Moerdijk, available at staff.
It seems difficult to find good introductions that are freely available online, but a nice set of lecture notes can be be found on Schapira’s web page, here.
Selected pages Page 2. Basic Homological Algebra by Scott Osbourne is a nice beginners text. Second, one must be able to compute these things with spectral sequences.

Learning Homological Algebra is a two-stage affair. Differential Forms and Applications Manfredo P.
Over the past four decades, he has published numerous successful texts of introductory character, mainly in the field of modern abstract algebra and its related disciplines.
As usual, the rule is one reference per post.
An Introduction to Homological Algebra
I agree the best reference is Weibel, and GM’s Methods is really good, but for starting out I’d recommend Mac Lane’s Homology which is just about homological algebra. Both of these newer books discuss all three periods see also Kashiwara—Schapira, Categories and Sheaves.
An Introduction to Manifolds Loring W. Like everything by Rotman, it’s a wonderful and enlightening read. The standard example is of course Weibel which I’ll leave for someone else to describe. All this makes Rotman’s book very convenient for beginners in homological algebra as well as a reference book.
