"All the mathematics you missed but need to know for graduate school"[1] helped me a lot (and, in fact, I had and did).

Once I had finished that, Cullen's "Matrices and linear transformations"[2] was really helpful too. But I wouldn't do Cullen if you're still, as I was, floundering with the concepts of why you're doing this in the first place. It's great once you have those concepts down.

Garrity's book looks exactly what I've been looking for for brushing up on basic math skills after a decade of fairly low-brow work after my MSc. Thanks for the reference!

Hope it helps! It definitely got me through the first year of grad school...
