The former seems to assume prior knowledge and the latter seems more beginner friendly, except it uses R (in case anyone wants the distinction).




These books assume some degree of Linear Algebra, ESL is definitely not for a entry level.

I would like to add www.codingthe matrix.com for any developers, which has a MOOC as well (Coursera), as a complement to Strang.


R is well worth learning if you're going to be doing any serious work with data. It's a weird-ass language, but it does data analysis/graphing/modelling really, really well.
