Format: Hardcover
The 5th edition is not a bad book by any means. It's relatively clear, though at times it loses sight of a more intuitive conceptual approach while exploring mechanics. I've been using this in conjunction with Greene, and definitely find this to be the better of the two. I guess I would put it thus: I expect Greene to be a better reference down the road, but this has been a very helpful educational tool.

It loses a star for two reasons:

1) Organization is terrible. There is one appendix at the back of the book, then a series of appendices at the end of each chapter. You have to expect some flipping around in any text, but this is a but much.

2) I happened to pick up an earlier edition at the campus library for a study session after I accidentally left my own (5th) edition at home, and amazingly, I found the earlier edition to be MUCH better. I'm not sure of the reasons for the change, but the explanations - and the prose itself - were much clearer in the earlier editions. Perhaps the authors wanted to make newer editions more challenging. Either way, at times when I've been stumped deciphering with a new concept, I'll return to the earlier edition and find it crystal-clearly explained. Very odd.

All in all, though, a worthwhile text.

After at least partially reading 15-20 different Econometrics books in pursuit of a PhD degree, I found this one the most helpful go-to book by a large degree. Don't worry about the 'Basic' in the title, the book is not basic and contains most important concepts and they are explained in a language so that a regular, educated person can follow and understand. Many other Econometrics books seem to be written for people that already know everything, this one gives you a chance to learn.

This book is well written and very accessible. It helped a lot in my econometrics course. I wish I could keep it with me as a reference for future projects and classes but I rented it.
