GET A LINE ON LINEAR ALGEBRA!
Now anyone with an interest in linear algebra can master it -- without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Linear Algebra Demystified, mathematician, physicist, and student-savvy author David McMahon provides an effective, illuminating, and entertaining way to learn the essentials of linear algebra.

With Linear Algebra Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers problems at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book.

This fast and entertaining self-teaching course makes it much easier to:

  • Conquer linear algebra with step-by-step explanations
  • Get problem-solving help from hundreds of worked examples
  • Gain practical mathematical tools for use in engineering, computer science, physics, and other fields
  • Master eigenvalue and eigenvector problems with examples and clarifying discussions
  • Find plain-language explanations of complex topics such as vector spaces, linear transformations, inverses, inner product spaces, and matrix decompositions
  • Review for advanced linear algebra courses with this quick and reliable guide
  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Simple enough for beginners but challenging enough for those who already know something about linear algebra, Linear Algebra Demystified is the best self-teaching tool or brush-up you can find!
