Another Linear Algebra Book

  1. Nov 4, 2009 #1
    Hi, I'm first year and taking my first algebra course. My class is using "Linear Algebra" 4th ed. By Friedberg, Insel and Spence.

    I'm having problems in the course, and I feel I need another textbook. My course is proof/concept based, and I don't have intuition in algebra. Does anyone know any book that explains basic algebra concepts in more physical terms?\

    Strang's book is great. It's written in a friendly style and will help you develop your intuition. Good luck!

    I should add that the enterprising student should be able to find a PDF copy of the 3rd edition of Strang's book - maybe even with a solutions manual! - by conducting a few Google searches :)
