5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Tommy Volume 2, December 27, 2003
I am currently enrolled in BC Calculus in my high school as well as linear algebra at a local college. What better way to learn both together than with Tommy. This is a great book to learn the connections between the two and how to do real linear algebra, not straight algebra but differentiating and doing calculus on whatever spaces you want. It's very concise, however not so clear. I skipped into BC and spend a lot of free time doing math and this book is still a bit deep. Also, the tie-ins to LA are definitely not going to be apparent off the bat. I have a really great LA teacher so I find myself skipping over some of his more complicated expressions of very simple items, however if i were a newcomer to LA, this would be totally confusing and Greek. I agree with the other reviewers, if you're familiar with calculus and LA and want to learn more about each and their connections, this is the bible, however, if you're a newcomer to one or both, definitely learn each separately and more simply. The book is very proof based and states it assumes you know how to use the mathematical objects it's presenting, now it's showing you why they work. Some of his expressions are like physics problems mindset, first look you'll have no idea, but if you think about it, eventually the ideas all fall together. A great book and recomended to anyone experienced enough to handle it.
