Does anyone have suggestions on an introduction to Linear Algebra? I need a book that covers all or most of these topics in an introductory manner: Systems of linear equations and matrices. Determinants. Vector spaces. Inner product spaces. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

I read Shilov's 'Linear Algebra' published by Dover. I consider it cheap and adequate.

all books cover that stuff. numerous free ones have been described here. e.g. the one on the website http://www.math.uga.edu/~roy/ is the world's shortest at 15 pages covering far more than those topics.

much better is the one by sharipov.
