A simple resource about tensors

    ...is what I am looking for, to understand what is written in GR books.

    Schutz' First Course In GR is the simplest I could find which has a part dedicated to their explanation but I am looking for something simpler than that. I am looking for something which is not a long mathematics textbook but explains how to understand what is written in tensor notation.

    Schaums outline on tensor analysis would be a good place to start. I used mcconnells book when I did an indep study on tensors. It was a Dover publication.
