What level should the books be?? Undergrad, grad? Do you know topology, analysis, linear algebra,...??

It's an undergrad course but i want to do some preliminary reading. Yes to both analysis and linear algebra, but no to topology.What level should the books be?? Undergrad, grad? Do you know topology, analysis, linear algebra,...??

You can't go wrong with these two books:It's an undergrad course but i want to do some preliminary reading. Yes to both analysis and linear algebra, but no to topology.

I have this one on my iPad, and it's very good:

A great introductory book is Barrett O'Neil's Elementary Differential Geometry. It has a lot of worked problems and solutions in the back so you can check yourself.

For more problems, try the Schaum's Outline of Differential Geometry

There isn't a perfect overlap of content and notation between these books, but I found that it was more than enough to do well in differential geometry. One thing to remember (which I learned the hard way!) is that 80% of the difficulty is understanding notation! So, the more resources, the better.
