So I'm in a really serious problem. It's my first year at university and I'm doing a CS major. The math is already getting serious and I'm lost, really lost. It's all about matrices so far and the thing is I really can't do the proofs (of determinants). High school(A-level) was math was pie and it didn't even involve any proofs and that's where I'm lacking now and I'm stressed out. I don't know where to start. So I went online and looked at all the books that have been listed around and here are some I found: Linear Algebra Done Right - Axler Intro. to Linear algebra - Gilbert Strang Linear Algebra - Hoffman and Kunze
These are some, but I'm not sure where to start. I need a book which will teach me some basic proofs and how to think to solve these proofs. So anyone could help me out, where to start?
