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.
