Hi, so I'm going to attend university this fall, and I'm planning to double major in math and physics. So I will be taking a calculus course based on Spivak and an Algebra course that uses Friendberg's Linear Algebra.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So currently I'm trying to start studying these books so that I can get up to speed with school. I just got Freindberg so until recently I have used Strang's Linear Algebra with Applications + MIT OCW. Should I continue this or should I do both together or what?

I'm not really planning to go far, I just want to get a feel of the material, before school. But I do want to learn whatever I can as effective as I can.

So how do you guys think I should study these books? They will be my first encounter with rigorous mathematical proofs.
