N.B. The syllabus has changed a little since 2010/11; principally, group theory is no longer part of Algebra 1B.

Suggested textbooks:

• "Basic linear algebra", by T.Blyth and E.Robertson (511.84 BLY). Efficient and closest to the course.
• "Introduction to linear algebra", by G. Strang (512.5 STR). Textbook for his MIT lectures.
• "Schaum's outline of theory and problems of linear algebra", by S.Lipschutz (511.84 LIP). Good source of worked examples.
• "Elementary linear algebra", by H.Anton (511.84 ANT). Goes more slowly and also further.
• "Linear algebra and matrix theory", by E.Nering (511.84 NER). More advanced; recommended for Algebra 2A.
