It covers most of the standard material in an introductory Linear Algebra course. There is one large omission: the textbook completely ignores the notion of change of basis. There is no explanation why this was done, and a guess is that it was overlooked. The book is also very streamlined, and does not have much outside of the standard curriculum (which might be a plus).



Change of basis is covered in section 5.3 on "similarity". See in particular the subsection "Geometry of Similar Matrices".
