    Quite simply outstanding!!!

    This book is incredible for people who need to teach themselves linear algebra. I am a PhD student here at MIT (no affilation with author whatsoever), coming from an undergrad engineering program where linear algebra was insufficient largely as a result of ABET accreditation issues. Now I am getting into issues very closely related to linear algebra in research, such as data assimilation and inverse problems. Since this book is supported by material on MIT's OpenCourseWare website (including online lectures!) you can effectively take the class yourself. Professor Strang's approach is unique as math professors go, in my experience. He argues (successfully, I believe) for a more intuitive approach to solving problems in linear algebra. He emphasizes an ability to look at an equation and assess it qualitatively before beginning any numerics. This contrasts with the more algorithmic approach advanced by most other linear algebra texts. The book is loaded with examples, and graphics for those of us who are of a more applied bent. Professor Strang's writing style is more relaxed than most of the other math texts I have used. This can take some getting used to, but in my opinion is much easier to read than typical math texts.
