I am currently enrolled in Multivariate Calculus and am looking to get build up a solid base of mathematics for undergraduate physics curriculum. I am looking for a Linear algebra book that will aid me in my quest. I currently own Axler's Linear Algebra Done Right, but I fear it is too theoretical with lack of applications and computation. Thank you.

I really like Axler's book, but for many of us it is too advanced for a first exposure to linear algebra. If it is too difficult for you, then there are many "standard" intro books that would probably work fine. One good free book is by Hefferon

In any case, I recommend you actually take a course in linear algebra if at all possible.
