Reviews - What do customers think about Economics: A Self-Teaching Guide (Wiley Self-Teaching Guides)?
good for all beginners Mar 30, 2008
Very simple and easy to understand. This book is great for the MacroEconomics clep test. It gives an overview of MicroEconomics (about 25% of the book), but probably wouldn't be enough for a MicroEconomics clep. Definitely worth buying if you want a good basic overview of Economics.
Craving Straight Facts Aug 15, 2003
I am a Mechanical Engineer with a BSME and minor in Naval Science. My BSME studies required I take eight credits in Economics, in which I did well. But this book surpassed those studies in many ways by dealing straight-away with the basic concepts of world economy, practical theory, history, and practical application, in short... macro-economics; without bogging me down with excessive microeconomics. But ended well with an excellent rehash on microeconomics. The book reads fast for a study book, and the author is a refreshing writer, honest in opinion, but not over opinionated, of good humor. I answered all the questions in the back of each chapter. Felt like I took a no-sweat 3 credit cours. Now I'm ready to study economics in its many specialty subjects. Anyone who is considering economics study on a collegient level, should study this book first; then they'll know. I highly recommend this book.
Highly Recommend! Apr 9, 2003
I have read a few Economics books for beginner, but none came close to this one. In particular, I would like to point out several strong points that clearly put this book above all else:
(1) This book is systematic, clear, and concise. Most of all, everything the author explained is right to the point without any flowery illustrations that plagued most other economic books.
(2) It starts out with a brief look at the major economic events in the 20th century starting from the 30's, then it deals with Macroeconomics and then Microecomics. The concepts build on one another, so that you will always have a sense of how things are actually connected with one another. The examples are also very vivid and memorable.
(3) The questions that are provided at the end of each chapters are excellent in driving the concepts home.
For those of you who are thinking of buying a beginner's guide to Economics, this will certainly be my first choice!
