The Study Guide is one of the best such works that I have seen. [Jane Williams has] made a good selection of readings and arranged them in a logical sequence for children of various ages. --Bettina B. Greaves (commenting about a prior edition), Resident Scholar, The Foundation for Economic Education, Inc.

I'm a HUGE fan of the books written by the author these guides were written for, but these guides were NOT written by the author and they are long winded tedious and all the things the book for the guides aren't! They are not user friendly and the guides are costly in comparision with the books they represent. I bought several from the series at the same time I bought the books and while the books were fantastic, none of the guides were useful! Sorry! But, that's the facts. in this case Unexcited Teacher!

My family has found this guide extremely helpful addition to our homeschooling Economics course. More than just a set of quizzes and exams, this guide really helps students expand on the subjects learned in "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy." The Economic Timetable alone is a fabulous resource. We also appreciate all the "Thought" questions that gets our family talking critically about the economy and real-world scenarios. There is also a great section for further reading. We have used other Bluestocking Guides with the rest of the Uncle Eric books and have found them both enjoyable and beneficial.

This supplement to "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy" is a wonderful tool for rounding out a school course in economics. It includes extra articles, discussion questions, tests, a final exam, suggested movies and documentaries, and suggested further reading. The tests include short answers, definitions, multiple choice, and essay questions. I am using it as part of my homeschooled son's freshman curriculum for economics. This book really laid out the assignments for us. The economics course that I recall from my own highschool experience was very dry and too elementary. It merely grazed the surface of economics. Later in life, when I read books on economics, they were too techinical. This book, along with the primary book "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy," does an exceptional job of exploring the various facets of economic topics while describing things in layman's terms. Most of all, the book captured both my and my son's interest. The articles were particularly good. Since reading this book, my son loves delving into our local newspaper in search of stories that have to do with economics and discussing them with me - priceless!

Who is very conservative. We are moderates and can handle it, but if you have a liberal POV on economics you may not like this series. This particular workbook has loads of extra reading on different topics, and those are quite useful, but most of them are written at a very high reading level. Only a student who is already interested in econ and reading at a freshman college level would be able to really absorb those. The workbook part of this is not that fabulous. No interesting projects or activities, at least not to my 15 year old! But the extra readings are the bulk of the workbook and very good if your kid is a great reader and interested.

Easy to understand what many think is a complicated subject, because it SEEMED complicated in my traditional Econ. books! Good for Jr. High to Adult in my opinion.

This book is Okay, we are currently using it along side "What Ever Happened to Penny Candy". I find it opens you up to discussions with your student more than any other text we have ever read. We are covering this in eighth grade, possibly should have waited until ninth or tenth grade. We do love the stories, the questions and extra assignments.
