Also, if "Mathematics for 3D Game Programming and Computer Graphics" is too hard for you, you should buy Practical linear algebra : Geometry toolbox. http://www.amazon.co...x/dp/1568812345


The book explains linear algebra with geometrical explanations and some drawings (and without theorem ), so you always know how to represent every mathematics "tool" in 2D/3D.
Roughly, the first half is about the 2D space and the other one about the 3D space.
Every chapter are not long but not too short, with corrected exercises at the end (which require simple computations).

I will begin the 3D part of the book and there were just 2 or 3 computations which were not simple to understand the first time.

If you take it, don't hesitate to post here or to send me a PM if you don't understand some parts. Posted Image

I took this book because it was recommended on http://www.realtimer....com/books.html (at the bottom of the page).

Edit: The book is not a "game oriented" book but it's composed of useful stuff as how to know the shortest distance between a point and a line or a plane.
And well, it's about linear algebra so it's always useful Posted Image
