Schaum's Outline of Discrete Mathematics - Chapter four of this text covers symbolic logic: operations, truth tables, logical equivalence, algebra of propositions, and quantifiers. There are only ten true practice exercises at the end of the chapter, but additional practice could be improvised by covering the solutions to the examples, which are more numerous.
