    Linear algebra book reccomendations

    Can someone reccomend me a decent, entry-level Linear Algebra book? I was looking at the latest edition of Strang, but the price tag is a bit too high. I would go straight to Axler's "Linear Algebra Done Right" but I think it will be too hard considering I know next to nothing outside of introductory matrix arithmetic.

    I like "Contemporary Linear Algebra" by Howard Anton. It's somewhat newer than Axler's and probably the best undergraduate textbook for someone who is starting to learn linear algebra.
