Publisher Comments:

  • QUICK and DEPENDABLE review of a typical LINEAR ALGEBRA course
  • Brings ABSTRACT concepts down to EARTH
  • Hundreds of SOLVED PROBLEMS show you how to get answers, step by step
  • Lots of QUIZZES, test questions, and a "final EXAM"

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!

Synopsis:

Taught at junior level math courses at every university, Linear Algebra is essential for students in almost every technical and analytic discipline.

Mike Hester, January 16, 2012 (view all comments by Mike Hester)
Up to the end of Chapter 5 and there are a large number of errrors in both the worked examples and the answers to the quizzes. I googled and downloaded an Errata but it does not seem to have all the errors captured. I have worked and reworked Chapter 5 quiz #6 and there is no way the answer is correct as they give x=39/3 but the det[A] is 58, and 3 is not a factor. I would not buy this book. I would strongly suggest Powell's remove it from the shelves as selling it is a serious disservice to your customers.
