This is not an introductory textbook in algebraic topology, these notes attempt to give a quick overview of the parts of algebraic topology, and in particular homotopy theory, which are needed in order to appreciate that side of motivic homotopy theory.

These notes were intended as a first introduction to algebraic Topology. Contents: Definition and general properties of the fundamental group; Free products of groups and their quotients; On calculation of fundamental groups; and more.
by J. S. Milne
These are the notes for a course taught at the University of Michigan in 1989 and 1998. The emphasis is on heuristic arguments rather than formal proofs and on varieties rather than schemes. The notes also discuss the proof of the Weil conjectures.
by F. R. Cohen, T. J. Lada, P. J. May - Springer
A thorough treatment of homology operations and of their application to the calculation of the homologies of various spaces. The book studies an up to homotopy notion of an algebra over a monad and its role in the theory of iterated loop spaces.
by Danny Calegari - Mathematical Society of Japan
This is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of stable commutator length, an important subfield of quantitative topology, with substantial connections to 2-manifolds, dynamics, geometric group theory, bounded cohomology, symplectic topology.
