    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...
