    depends on what kind you are looking for...a good introductory book i would suggest is Intro to linear algebra by Gilbert Strang...its used by a number of schools, including MIT

    I believe its an older book, but its still one of the best and its rather cheap, like $30.

    I don't need a book which is good in terms of teaching.
    I want to solve a lot of good problems(just for fun of it).

    In that case try Linear Algebra: Examples and Applications by Alain Robert...it still has the format similar to a textbook, but it is praised for its interesting examples and applications to the real world. $40
