Reviews - What do customers think about Economics (Cliffs Quick Review)?
Micro Review Aug 30, 2007
I used this book as a study guide along with some online review test for the microeconomics CLEP test and did great! It breaks everything down really well and provides a really good basic overview.
For CLEP tests this should not be you only resource. Apr 11, 2007
These reviews on Economics Cliffs Quick Review are outdated. Do not take the econimics CLEP tests if you have never taken a CLEP test before. If you want to take the Economics CLEP tests and you want really high grades you can go ahead and buy this book but it should not be your only resource. You should buy the REA guide(s) CLEP Microeconomics (Rea) - The Best Test Prep for the CLEPCLEP Microeconomics W/CD (Rea) - The Best Test Prep for the CLEPfor these CLEP tests which are not out yet but should be available in about 3 months. Yes these reviews are outdated-since then they have added questions about externalities which are not well explained (for CLEP test purposes) in this book. Be careful. Don't get in a hurry. By all means be patient and get the CLEP credit that you deserve!
Very good reference book on economics Jan 4, 2007
I purchased this book for my business library. I have many books on economics and this book allows me to quickly review some of the subjects without having to read a more detailed explanation found in most economics text books.
Great CLEP Prep Book! Nov 14, 2006
I just took both micro and macro economic CLEP tests, and passed both with a 63 and 60 respectively. The only studying I used was this book, coupled with a little online research and the offical CLEP practice tests. It worked great! However, this book does not cover the exchange market, so I suggest that you research this a little before taking the test.
Buy this! Apr 22, 2006
This book saved me in economics. It takes long winded and confusing concepts and boils them down to a concise explanation. I recommend this book to anyone in the midst of an Economics class!
