I have done an introductory course in Linear Algebra, but It wasn’t a proof-based course. I think I can deal with the applied part of linear algebra, but I don’t understand things like spaces and Linear mapping very well. I spent sometime reading the book: Linear algebra done right, but the language was ambigious and I spent alot of time reading a single paper in the book, so I fhink I lack some of the basis. Based on what I said, I would be glad if you recommend to me how I should start.

  • $\begingroup$ Read 'Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces' from P. R. Halmos. It avoids the concrete approach like the plague and some exercises assumes you know things like Zorn's Lemma and linear ODEs. But all in all it's an excellent second book on Linear Algebra. $\endgroup$ – Lázaro Albuquerque Feb 17 '19 at 3:55
