5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction to Linear Algebra and Math Proofs
We've used this book in our freshman course in Mathematics (Linear Algebra) at University of Copenhagen, Denmark. It's very good as a introduction to Mathematical Proofs too.
Published on March 1 1999

2.0 out of 5 stars Good reference book, poor learning tool.
While Messer shows good logic on how to impliment proofs, he fails to make good definitions of common terms. Most of the in text examples have nothing to do with the chapter they are in and are often so over simplified that it is impossible to extend the idea. The only reason that this book gets 2 stars is because it has a decent answer section.
