Overview

For combined differential equations and linear algebra courses teaching students who have successfully completed three semesters of calculus.

This complete introduction to both differential equations and linear algebra presents a carefully balanced and sound integration of the two topics. It promotes in-depth understanding rather than rote memorization, enabling students to fully comprehend abstract concepts and leave the course with a solid foundation in linear algebra. Flexible in format, it explains concepts clearly and logically with an abundance of examples and illustrations, without sacrificing level or rigor. A vast array of problems supports the material, with varying levels from which students/instructors can choose.

    If I already understood DiffEQs, I wouldn't be taking this course.

    I'm not sure who this guy thinks he's writing for. It's like he chose to explain everything in the most complex way possible. There's no need for that! I honestly needed a dictionary to get through one paragraph. I mean, seriously, when you're explaining a new concept to someone, you shouldn't assume that they're going to understand all of your ridiculous vocabulary. And if they do, who wants to read through that anyway? I may understand the words, but I'll have a migraine when I'm done, and I still won't grasp the concept.

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! My son needed this book for his class at an Out of State University. We kept receiving e-mails that the book will be sent in two weeks. To this day he still has not received the book so we went in and canceled. My son will be finished with the class before ever receiving this book. This book should not say available when it is not and should not string people along when you don't have the book.
