Review Text
I bought this book for my linear algebra class. I actually enjoyed the class (math nerd) and I think this book was a factor in that. The explanations were clear and concise, the examples applicable for the exercises that followed. The only thing that could be improved upon is the software integration  I struggled with the problems that used mathematical programs. I used Mathematica which is straight forward enough (and free) but still needed a lot of help from fellow classmates and TA's.
Bought this book for class....The book was both lacking in Linear Algebra and differential equations :(The concept is good but the execution of the book not so good.
The condition of the book was actually better than the expected "good" condition. I was happy with the shipping and with the book itself.However, as others have mentioned, the content in the book is not very clear. My professor was not clear either and I had to rely on tutorials on the internet and Google to understand the concepts. I'm not a math major, so that may be the reason why. Prepare for a lot of hard work!
I actually had Peterson the author of this text for the course. The book is application driven as opposed to pure mathematics. If you are using this book in a course i would highly recommend the solution manual as well because some of the application problems are hard to tackle, and plus peterson wrote the solution manual so it goes with the text very well.
good book
Good product. Description matched perfectly.
If this book is required for your math course, I highly suggest taking another course! There were various books of Linear Algebra and Differential Equations that my college uses for lecture and unfortunately I took the course which requires this one. This book was definitely written for those gifted with an easy understanding for mathematics, and I feel that the author didn't consider the learning process of how a student absorbs new mathematical material. To quote the book, page 69, "Lest we be accused of doing everything for you, we will let you verify the last two properties as an exercise." And this was in regard to a definition's very first example! I thought the solutions manual would help so I decided to purchase that too. Unfortunately, it's as helpless as this book since it doesn't show stepbystep solutions, only direct answers. I've completed and Aced my whole calculus series, and yet, this material was so difficult to grasp primarily because of the way it was written.If you have no other option than to take a course which requires this book make sure beforehand who the professor is, and that he/she has a reputation of being an excellent professor.

This package was thrown over the fence of my house when it rained. Sure no water damage, but I had tons of damage of my book AND I ONLY got 30 DOLLARS back! I cannot replace it now because it's convenient for me to take my time out of my busy school life and get the book replaced. Very disappointing as NOW the binding is breaking apart!
