Elementary Linear Algebra 11th edition gives an elementary treatment of linear algebra that is suitable for a first course for undergraduate students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of linear algebra in the clearest possible way; pedagogy is the main consideration. Calculus is not a prerequisite, but there are clearly labeled exercises and examples (which can be omitted without loss of continuity) for students who have studied calculus.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!! The book leaves a lot to be desired from a textbook. I bought the book outright for a class I that I had to have and I actually was able to learn more from Google than the textbook. The book is a total waste of time and money for any struggling student.
