Professors who wish to use advanced course management should order the ISBN above to receive the book packaged with MyEconLab in CourseCompass.Research shows the best way to learn is to put concepts to work with repeated practice. For this reason, frequent, quality practice is the cornerstone of the tightly-knit Essential Foundations of Economics learning system, building student success in economics by doing economics.First, student attention is focused on what to study through a Checklist of clearly defined core concepts in each chapter. Section by section, Checkpoints demonstrate how to study by stepping through a Practice Problem and then engaging students with a parallel Exercise. In addition, the Third Edition addresses why we study economics through a new feature, Reality Check. With Essential Foundations of Economics, students are taught to view economics as a skill to be honed rather than a collection of topics to be memorized.
