Books for self-learning Mathematics

Quote Quote by genericusrnme View Post
How about some Spivak?

Also, get some linear algebra done!
Linear Algebra is an incredibly pretty subject, makes calculus look like a contraption sellotaped together imo :3
If he is asking for a "student-friendly" book I don't think Spivak is a good choice, it's a difficult book for a self-learner.

For Linear Algebra he could use Larson's. I very much agree in that it is a pretty subject. The best of Linear Algebra is that you don't need any basis at all for learning it besides the very basic arithmetics
