A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introduction to the basic concepts of linear algebra, along with an introduction to the techniques of formal mathematics. It begins with systems of equations and matrix algebra before moving into the theory of abstract vector spaces, eigenvalues, linear transformations and matrix representations/5(6). The first 39 pages make up 98 percent of the book, and the last pages make up the last 2 percent of the book. I am using this book this semester for a first abstract algebra course, and it might well be an excellent book, I don't know yet. However, I am completely unimpressed with the Kindle book and regret paying even $ for it/5(95). Considered a classic by many, John Fraleigh's A First Course in Abstract Algebra is an in-depth introductory text for the Abstract Algebra course. Focused on groups, rings and fields, this text gives students a firm foundation for more specialized work by emphasizing an understanding of the nature of algebraic structures/5. A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook designed for university sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality.
