Linear algebra with applications. by. Leon, Steven J. Publication date. Upper Saddle River, . Pearson Prentice Hall. inlibrary; printdisabled; ; china.

A textbook for an undergraduate course for students familiar with the basics of differential and integral calculus from either one semester or two quarters of elementary calculus. Contains all the topics recommended by the NSF's Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, and more material than can be covered in a quarter or semester. Courses at the sophomore level can focus on the early chapters and omit many of the sections in later chapters. Courses at the junior or senior level can skate over the first two chapters and get to the meat. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Not a problem getting this at all. It was a quick arrival and everything that I needed.

One more thing... Go Huskers!

I used this Linear Algebra text in an undergraduate Linear Algebra course. Before I get to the problems of the text (and there are numerous) let me just say that it is conceptually complete, in that every topic in linear algebra is given very close attention. (Eigenvectors/Eignenvalues were given a very elegant treatment, as an example) All the concepts are well organized and also some applications are thrown in to the mix.
With the above statement, it seems that this book has everything going for it to be a fantastic linear algebra book. Unfortunately, it hits some pitfalls. Although its conceptually complete, it is very dense. ( a common math textbook pitfall) Places where explanations could have been expanded quite a bit are not. Being a very dense math textbook leads to the next problem. Leon's notation is unneccasarily formal for an introductory linear algebra text. It is quite fustrating getting used to notation before you get to the key concepts. (His notation is not often explained well enough.) Although I got passed the overlyformal notation and got to the meaty concepts, I can completely sympathize with others who get stuck on it and have absolutely *NO* clue what the author is trying to say. Let's face it, not everyone taking Linear Algebra is a math major (I for one am a physics major and there were quite a few engineering majors in my class.)
Another pitfall of this book is the absolute decrepid writing style. Do not laugh when [someone] states that this book is boring and well "Just not fun..." because that statement is the truth! The writing style has a very sleep-inducing tone, which is a shame because linear algebra is a very important topic and an interesting one. (With far reaching applications.) It is very difficult to describe... get through the book without much trouble and you will see what we mean. The only concrete example I could think of is the mind-numbingly dry explanation of vector spaces in the third chapter.
In closing, this book does not need much to become a great linear algebra book. All the concepts are there, so the hard part is done. Hopefully Leon in the 6th edition will clean up the notation a bit and add some life into the explanations and writing style, this book could be an undergraduate linear algebra standard.

A pretty good textbook, but by no means outstanding. I learned a lot by working the problems. I did not, however, learn how to do more than simple proofs. Instead of outlining some methods as to how beginning students should go about learning how to prove theorems, the author assumes you already know how to do that. Consequently, I didn't master that skill. It also would have helped if the Solutions Manual that accompanies this text were available to students; maybe by now they've made it available. Leon definitely does not include enough worked examples in the text, and those problems where "The Proof is left as an exercise for the reader" are useless and defeating. I wholeheartedly disagree with the review above that "if you can't handle this text, don't major in math, you don't have what it takes". Nonsense. Provided you give it your all, you can major in math, and understand Leon's text, even if you aren't blessed with sheer, infallible intellect.

First of all, I would like to say this book is not for beginers. If you have no idea what a matrix is, don't use this book. However if you have taken an introductory course in linear algebra or you already have a reasonably well foundation in this subject, then you should have no problem in understanding following the text. Although the explaination in this book is not particularly outstanding, it does treat some advanced topics like eigenvalues, numerical linear algebra elegantly. I would like to recommend this book to persons who would like to seek a more advanced linear algebra book for reference or self studying.
Finally, regarding to other reviews on this book, I would like to point out:
1. Linear algebra courses usually won't teach you how to prove. Go and take analysis courses if you like proving theorems.
2. If you are an absolute beginner, take some introductory courses on linear algebra FIRST before you take courses that use this book. I don't think any college will use this book in the first course in linear algebra.
