Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,
I am taking this course:
Linear Algebra for Engineering
Linear equations, matrices and determinants. Introduction to vector spaces. Eigenvalues and diagonalization. Applications. Complex numbers.
I am going to use some additionals books along with the course book ("Linear Algebra with Applications" by Keith.
So, wondering if anyone can suggest me some good books?

If you have time, can you see list of these books,and try picking good ones..

thanks a lot!

When I took Linear Algebra, there was no Lin Alg for Engineer's :/. We used:

Introduction to Linear Algebra by Johnson 5th ed.

I like'd it alot but there's really only 1 application that we covered (doing simple electric circuits using matrice's). But they also have a whole chapter (7) which covere's applications which my class skipped....

Also your link doesn't work it says that the session time'd out.
