Hey I'm currently self teaching calculus from tom Apostol vol 1. I intend to learn what I guess would be calc 3 from his second volume. Although his second volume also seems to have heavy emphasis on linear algebra.
I'm a computer science major and even though I'm still in the early part of my major I've always heard linear algebra is a pretty important thing to know as a cs major. My question is how thorough is linear algebra taught in his second volume? I had intended to buy a copy of linear algebra by Hoffman and Kunze. Should I still consider buying it? or is the treatment of linear algebra in vol 2 of tom Apostols calculus sufficient?

For a CS major, the best way to go would be to learn linear algebra from computational point of view. There is a book (and the corresponding online course on edx.org) by Professor Robert van de Gejin from the University of Texas. The book is named "Linear Algebra: Foundations to Frontiers":
The online course on edx.org can be found here:
Hope this helps.
