    I've got a lecturer who doesn't always explain things very well.

    Can anyone recommend any books on Vectors and Matrices?

    Thanks

    As a basic introduction the Schaum's Outlines series are good. For all the theory behind vectors and matrices maybe try Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces by Halmos, or Linear Algebra by Kaye & Wilson.

    A good starting point on this topic is probably from the start.

    AQA's Pure 6 text is available online at this link here:

    http://194.34.9.21/qual/gceasa/maths...-TS-MathsA.pdf

    This book is almost wholly based on Matrices, Determinents, Inverse Matrices, Eigenvalues & Eigenvectors, and Solving Simultaneous Equations using Matrices'.

    A good book on general Maths stuff is Mathematical Techniques (Jordan and Smith). It's very clear (at least to me anyway).
