Description

This is a clear and comprehensive introduction to econometrics for students with relatively little mathematical aptitude. The book is written in an accessible and entertaining style. At the same time, unlike some other elementary treatments, it provides thorough coverage of the main econometrics topics and is informed by solid technical understanding of the material. It covers the standard topics in the order in which they are usually taught. A set of exercises to be done with a computer is included, as well as a data disk for students, making it extremely student-friendly. It is also very teacher-friendly : an instruction manual with an extra data disk is available, as is an innovative package of computer graphics to help the instructor with his/her teaching. This book is intended for a first course for undergraduate students of econometrics, usually taken during the 2nd/3rd year of Economics degrees.show more
