    Im looking for a more difficult linear algebra book, more analytical with proofs and whatnot, but not too difficult (Ive only had up to calc III and taking linear algebra now). any suggestions?

    I second Axler. It will give you a more theoretical outlook to balance out the rote computation in most intro. linear algebra courses.

    Absolutely correct. If you're already familiar with determinants and its uses in finding eigenvalues and inverses then Axler is a very good book for you!! I should edit that in in my blog...
