I could see how this might be a good reference book for Linear Algebra, but I'm using this text in my first course on the subject and it's very very frustrating that it doesn't have the answers to over half of the problems it gives you to work. It's difficult to understand a subject well if you can't easily identify and learn from your mistakes. I've had to procure additional Linear Algebra texts to help me out. On the bright side, its narrative style and more abstract approach has forced me to think for myself and figure things out much more than typical math texts have. I hope that the next edition can find a middle ground by including more solutions.

Generally, when I have a complaint about a math text, it's because it's either too heavy on the proofs, or too heavy on the exercises. I always though those were disjoint events, and then I took a course out of this book. This is essentially a problem book. It is the only math text I've bought in several years which I intend to sell as soon as I've completed the course and found a suitable replacement. In terms of pedagogy, it's horrible. It doesn't look like it's going to be a good reference book either. To be honest, a Schaum's Outlines would have been better, and at 1/10th the cost.

Between my instructor for this course and the explinations in the book there was nothing in this book that I did not understand by the end of the semester. This is a rigorous book which is very clearly written.
