I was trying to self study Linear Algebra and I had a copy of Hoffman and Kunze. I found it a bit dry. I searched for some alternatives and I like these:

1) Applied Linear Algebra and Matrix Analysis - Thomas S. Shores (Springer Undergrad math series)

http://books.google.com.sg/books?id...resnum=5&ved=0CBIQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=&f=false

2) Elementary Linear Algebra (Not the 9th edition) by Howard Anton

3) Linear Algebra and its Applications by Gilbert Strang

4) Elementary Linear Algebra Fifth Edition- Larson/ Edwards/ Falvo

5) Linear Algebra by Stephen Friedberg

What would you recommend? Should I continue with Hoffman/Kunze or should I use one of the others?

Cost is not an issue.

Thanks.
