    Books for getting up to speed prior to topology?

    My eventual goal is to learn differential geometry, and to work with the math behind relativity. Right now I'm tackling topology, reading through MA Armstrong's Basic Topology. It would help if I were up to speed on linear algebra and real analysis, however. I was wondering if anyone can recommend good books on these subjects. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I think Kolmogorov & Fomin is a good book to have (considering it is very cheap).
