Hey all,

I have a pretty solid background in what would be best described as applied or engineering math. However, I have had a very limited exposure to proofs. This fall, I will be taking a course covering linear algebra and vector calculus in an entirely proof-based manner. I'm looking for recommendations on books to read to get up to speed on the art of proofs. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Velleman's book is pretty good. However, I suggest you read it together with your linear algebra text. Reading a proof book can get quite boring if that's all your doing.
