Good linear algebra book recommendation

  1. May 15, 2010 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I am looking to teach myself linear algebra this summer, but I can't find a good book.
    Any recommendations?

    I like Axler the best. There are lots of similar threads in the science book forum. I sugggest you search there if you want to see other recommendations.

    One of my professors recommended "The Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know" by Jonathan Golan. I am currently working through it right now, and I am enjoying it thoroughly, as it is a little more involved than the textbook I had for my undergraduate linear algebra course (the only one I've had the opportunity to take so far).

    I'm self-studying using Linear Algebra by Strang, and I'd recommend it for anyone who is learning linear algebra for the first time.
