Goes well beyond an "outline" of elementary linear algebra, especially when compared to the course textbook I was assigned (Elementary Linear Algebra with Applications). Schaum's Outline provided all the same relevant theorems and proofs in rigorous mathematical language while taking time to define common mathematical notation for non-initiates. There are plenty of exercises at various stages of difficulty and application with thorough explanations for most solutions and step-by-step guides for ...more

The outstanding feature of this book is its awful proofreading and editing.

The book is intended for beginning math students – to show them all the steps in doing calculations and simple proofs, but many of the “solved” problems contain errors.

I can imagine some poor frustrated undergraduate trying over and over to get the same answer as the book, and not understandin

Well laid out. Covered most of the material for my first year linear algebra course (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)

Major problems with some of the answers in the book, many had mistakes in them... highly recommend double checking the answer with something like Wolfram Alpha...
