Anyway, for me, this book is worth more than any pricey textbook on the subject. Just buy it and use it! You'll begin to see how cool Linear Algebra really is. Beware - mathematics at this level and beyond can be very addictive!
- low cost compared to a normal textbook
- easy to understand explanations
- lots of problems
- many, many wrong answers in the answer key means that you'll spend a lot of time checking your math with a calculator.
For graduate students looking for a Schaum's outline that is more about large systems of matrices and the techniques and algorithms that are used on them, I suggest you look at "Schaum's Outline of Matrix Operations" by Bronson.
This book is an excellent book for both theory and problems. It has numerous solved examples ...and moreover the examples are very cleverly chosen. After this you have hell lot of problems of varied difficulties to test yourself. The best point is that hints are given for some important and difficult problems!
Only trouble I got during my undergraduate was that I found that this book was a bit to elementry for a bit advanced topics like matrix diagonalization and other things. For that one has to get some other advanced book ....like that by Hoffman.
Second deficiency is, probably because this book intends to be mainly a problem book, it doesnt introduce the student to dazling applications (!) of linear algebra ... linear algebra is an extremely nice portion of mathematics and it has equally amazing applications. I feel in undergraduate courses student should get an exposure of its applications also. The best example of that being the Quantum Mechanics. So some science/math students might go for a good quantum mechanics book after going through this excellent problems book. (one on Heisenberg's apporach and not Schroodinger's) Best of Luck Mukul
