If you're starting graduate studies in economics, then I'd also strongly recommend Sundaram's A First Course in Optimization Theory. Its subject matter is mostly a subset of Mathematics for Economists, but optimization an often-tricky topic that you'll need to master.
I tried chiang's math fundamentals as well and that book is great if you literally know nothing about math. This book just what you need if you already know some basic math. Well if you remember what is a proper subset this book is exactly what you need.
