Book suggestion - 3d math only

I am interested in learning more about real time rendering in 3d but need to start from the bottom up. The problem is I am torn between these 3 books to start out with:
They appear to cover the same kind of ground but I want to make sure:
3d Math Primer seems to be the standard choice - http://www.gamedev.net/page/books/index.html/_/technical/math-and-physics-13/3d-math-primer-for-graphics-and-game-development-wordware-game-math-library-r226
The above has just had a new 2011 revision but renamed slightly (might actually be completely different), would it be worth getting that instead? http://www.amazon.com/Math-Primer-Graphics-Game-Development/dp/1568817231/ref=cm_cr_pr_sims_t
And there is Essential Mathematics for games and interactive apps:
Any ideas on which one as a first book in 3d math?
My other question was that these are introductory, anyone got any advanced suggestions after these?
