Hi, I've searched this forum and narrowed my choices down to these three books: linear algebra - friedberg linear algebra - hoffman &kunze linear algebra - serge lang Could anyone please compare these three books? I'm a high school student and haven't studied linear algebra before. (I can find determinants of 3x3 matrix, find eigenvalues and eigenvectors, etc but I guess this doesn't really count as linear algebra!) I've already got Basic Linear Algebra by Blyth and Robertson and hoping to work through this book. Which of those three books will complement Blyth&Robertson's book? I'm leaning towards Serge Lang. I prefer something that's concise and easy to follow. What do you think? Any help would be appreciated. :) edit; Also, how is Linear Algebra: An Introductory Approach bur Curtis? or Linear Algebra done right by Axler?
