An excellent source of linear algebra refs. (and all college math
material for that matter) can be found at Steve Dump's Math Forum,
which is "close" to "here" at

http://www.forum.swarthmore.edu/~steve .

Of course, there is the Super link resource at

http://www.math.psu/OtherMath.html .

One option is to surf the college math department pages for their
postings of old exam and HW assignments - usually under the appro-
piate class page. I found some excellent notes, problems and solutions
in group theory. What's interesting is to compare what the different
departments are doing that term - what text is being used, why (why
some aren't - opinions can be strong) scope of the course, etc.

As for books, Schaum's Outline on Linear Algebra is an excellent
source of elementary problems and solutions. There are many texts
on linear algebra (too many in fact) each with it particular bias
(either
matrix aggebra, vector spaces, or numerical linear algebra). Some
elementary ones are by Anton, O'Nan, and Banchoff.
