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 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 some of the initial problems. There were very few typos or errors that I noticed and the narrative progression of concepts is well-chosen and explained.

This "outline" is pretty much all you need to get through an elementary linear algebra course. ...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. There are typos, mistakes in simple arithmetic, and just plain errors in copying a list of numbers in the middle of calculations. I can imagine some poor frustrated undergraduate trying over and over to get the same answer as the book, and not The outstanding feature of this book is its awful proofreading and editing.

It is a shame, because the format and design of the lessons are good. Someone should have gone through the book and checked the calculations. It is amazing that such a sloppy product was published. (And I have the FIFTH edition!)

The book also has the goofy feature that some quite intricate historically important proofs are suggested as problems, along with problems that only require simple arithmetic. But this doesn’t hurt anyone.

Good book.
I learned a lot with this book and I recommend to everyone.

I used this book for a proof based course on Linear and Abstract Algebra. I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone seeing Linear Algebra for the first time, as the book doesn't emphasise the geometric intuitions behind the subject. However, it works well for students who have already seen Linear Algebra from a more intuitive standpoint and want to understand the subject more rigorously. The style is very problem focused, and you learn the material in the book from doing the problems, which I used this book for a proof based course on Linear and Abstract Algebra.

However, it works well for students who have already seen Linear Algebra from a more intuitive standpoint and want to understand the subject more rigorously. The style is very problem focused, and you learn the material in the book from doing the problems, which increase in difficulty. Solving all the problems in sequence and reading all of the proofs enabled me to pick up the underlying themes behind many of the difficult problems, and this gave me a lot of confidence heading into the exams. This may not be an easy read (the material is dense), but it is well worth reading. ...more

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...

Covers the content well enough, but has quite a few mistakes in the content and the exercises
