Worst Macro Book Ever... Dec 11, 2009
This book is horrible. Using it now for a grad school macro class, and the errors in the mathematical appendix, the half-baked ideas expressed in the book and other horrendous items make this book a bad buy. He does not "drive home" on many topics in the book. I look forward to burning this book after this class is over. I would much rather recommend Macroeconomics by Bernanke and Abel (.Macroeconomics plus MyEconLab plus eBook 1-semester Student Access Kit (6th Edition)), than this excuse of a book.
Seller took a long time to issue refund, but it was done Oct 12, 2009
Seller apparently no longer had product, and it took about a month for me to get a refund. Should have been done faster, but at least it was done.
One of the best book I have read May 2, 2009
I really like the way the material is explained in this book. I had 2 undergraduate economics courses covering the whole book. For the models, graphs are shown for every case with detailed explanation. The assumption and critics for each models are explained as well. There are not much math equations and it is easy to read. Overall, I have learned SO much. Really happy that school has assigned this book. I wasn't really listening in the class and just read the book prepare me for the exams. I have never read any other macro book, but at least this book helps me to learn the material.
Book Review Mar 6, 2009
In good shape, cover is different than the once announced, but everything else is fine.
review by a student Feb 8, 2009
I am a undergraduate student studying economics. This textbook is awful, it lacks details, insights and necessary algebra and diagrams are often wrong. I would not recommend it to anyone.
