Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
The fundamentals of linear algebra are used all throughout the sciences, so understanding some basic principles is very helpful. Furthermore, this course has an emphasis on proofs which helps students to develop the ability to think logically.
I became proficient at row reducing matrices, which allows me to solve systems of linear equations quickly and accurately. My understanding of vector products and vector spaces has also become much more clear, which prepared me to understand some difficult concepts in multi-variable calculus. I also learned to find eigen vectors and values, which are used in my field of engineering.

Advice for students:
Study in groups or get help from a tutor. This material has to be understood not crammed or you will do very poorly on the tests. Most of the course builds on itself concept by concept, so make an effort to understand what is going on because you will likely need to use it for future material.
