References: 1) Linear Algebra and its Applications, second or third edition by David
Lay is the standard text for this course.
2) Linear Algebra, second edition by Kenneth Hoffman and Ray Kunze is a good text for
those with a taste for abstraction.
3) Any other introductory text on the topic of linear algebra will serve equally well.
