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.
