1.Which book should I consult to learn some basic and intermediate differential geometry? I heard V. Arnold's book on mathematical methods for mechanics is a great one, but should I go for reading a little bit of that considering I do not have that much time? Any recommendations of source is welcome.

Also, I found out the college I will be going into, uses Taylor's book for Classical mechanics, so my plan is to supplement Taylor with H. Goldstein as I am interested in the more canonical and comprehensive stuff it provides.

2.I also came across to know that I will be needing a thorough hold on linear algebra to progress on the later chapters of Goldstein and in the advanced books of Quantum Mechanics which I am willing to catch up later, so I also seek source recommendations on that.
