I recommend this book. Heck, it's only $24 (you can get a used copy for half the price) and I suspect you'll spend "more" time with this book than you will your actual $100+ textbook (I know that I did).
I'd also like to recommend that you hunt down a used copy (or go to your library and see if they have it) of "Elementary Linear Algebra" by Howard Anton. We had to use the Grossman book (along with its confusing examples and below-average way of showing proofs).Read more ›
Is very clear and complete. Unfortunately it does not have a detailed index at the end of the book, in spite of being announced in the front cover. Only a Table of Contents is available. Other Schaum's Solved Problems books have a really great index that help students locate the type of problem they need to solve.

The range of material covered is more than you will find in the lower undergraduate class. If you take the time to work through this book, you will be a master of the topic with a much wider foundation and with many different approaches to same problem. If you are a veteran of Linear Algebra, this will refresh your memory and may add new elements to the subject that you weren't presented initially, such as manipulations of a matrix in C not just R. It will also help you catch up on the little "details" which you might have absorbed for the duration that you thought you would be tested on it, but after such time the information vanished into the void of forgotten math.

This is best experience I've got from a non-Amazon seller. As good as Amazon. Both are great.The book is as good as it's been described. The delivery is smooth and timely.Published on Oct. 21 2011 by Alex
This book has 3000 problems.However, many of them are similar.I recommend engineers to find a book that is better than this.Published on Dec 31 1999 by Fahad Alsubaie
