But maybe the problems of the book are quite difficult for someone self-studying linear algebra for the first time. Another book that you can use to supplement is Linea Algebra - Insel, Friedberg, Spence.

and actually it has a yt channel where explains parts of the book: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtHp0WNe3OaSXAr1C_Oi0AQ/videos

Oh wow, that's great! I didn't know about that, it looks really useful. Thanks for mentioning this!

or the book “elementary linear algebra” by Anton (used copies of old editions are good and cheap).

Gilbert Strang ( http://www-math.mit.edu/~gs/ )

has some very interesting applications of linear algebra and applied mathematics

I took an applied math course in college that used his Applied Mathematics book.

Look back at the text now, there are a lot of gems that I'm still trying to understand

(connecting numerical and discrete methods with continuum analytic methods).

If you just took single/multivariable calculus, then maybe the Axler book is not a book you should try learning from at this point. It is a pure mathematics book, not to mention that he avoids determinants till the end of the book. It is a good book, but if you are unfamiliar with proof writing, then little will be gained.

Something like the run of the mill introductory linear algebra books would probably be better. Ie., Anton: Linear Algebra. Lay: Linear Algebra. etc., It introduces proofs, so you can practice proof writing working through the book. I would also get Serge Lang: Introduction To Linear Algebra and work through both of them.

There is also this book.

Berberian rights very clearly. I read this for fun, after being acquainted with working through most of Axler. I found it very clear. Not to expensive, and I found out stuff I didn't know...

Personally, I find Strang Linear Algebra to be one of the worst textbooks I have had the disdain to read. The problems are good.=, but he is extremely verbose, and it obfuscates what is really happening.Gilbert Strang ( http://www-math.mit.edu/~gs/ )
