Greetings, what is the intended audience of Arnold's ODE book? I have completed a computational style ODE course, 3 semesters of Calculus from Stewart's book and a Linear Algebra Course. Will I need higher mathematics in order to study Arnold's book on ODE?

Yes. From what I can see you'll need some analysis, lots of LA, maybe some topo and differential geometry as well to understand some of the material. It's geared towards graduate students.
