This is the easier of Kolman's two texts: it has more applications and vector spaces come later in the text. Major revision. New edition is most technology friendly book in this market. Last chapter is on numerical techniques using MATLAB. Also has superb MATLAB manual by Hill/Zitarelli ('96) that should be sampled to anyone interested in technology.
