Does anyone have any good recommendations for a Linear Algebra book? Someone told me that "Elementary Linear Algebra: Applications Version" by Howard Anton was really good. Is it? Or do you all prefer another book?

Thanks, Bino

I'm currently using "Linear Algebra and It's applications" Pretty good although I haven't actually tried to compare it with other Linear Algebra books.Check it out.It's even got one chapter on applications to computer graphics.It's written by David C. Lay and it's ISBN # is: 0-201-34774-1

Linear Algebra by Fraliegh Beauregard is quite good, although it is very VERY mathematical :-)!

I always jump to the cheat chapter in
Foley, van Dam, et al: Computer Graphics.
That book is good for other things, too :-)
(of course, it's starting to get dated)
