For sheer number of drill problems, Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Kreyszig has a section on linear algebra that's one of the better introductions I've seen. I use the 7th edition, which you can get very cheaply off Amazon.

There's also the abstract algebra book by Pinter,

There's also the abstract algebra book by Pinter,A Book of Abstract Algebra,that I recommend because it's easy to read and helps to keep the broader ideas in mind.

I found Strang a bit to verbose, great exercises however. This is a love it or hate book. I found Linear Algebra by Friedberg easier to read than Strang.

Great resource for the problems is a book called "Problems in Linear Algebra" by Paul Halmos.

Depends on what the OP means with linear algebra. You interpret it as vector spaces. The OP might simply have matrix algebra and some geometry in mind.

Halmos' linear algebra problem book isn't meant as a main textbook. So it's very bad as a main textbook.
