5.0 out of 5 stars Great book as a supplement or a refresher! July 31, 2002
By J
Having already obtained a B.S. in Economics, I was looking for a book to have a refresher before I start my masters degree. Boy did I ever pick the right book! This book is fantastic. It is easy to read, is very insightful, and has great question and answer sessions as you go through the chapters. It even has an entire chapter (ch. 2) on what most people find to be the most difficult part of economics, the graphs. It covers Macro, Micro, and even stems out into taxes and government, spilling over a bit into finance even. This is a great book and I would reccomend it for anyone who needs a good refresher or just some additional help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good economics primer January 5, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book, like the others I have read from the Business Review Series is top notch. It covers the topics presented in college level economics courses. It covers macroeconomics and microeconomics theories. Easily, this is one of the more readable texts on an otherwise dry subject.
The book targets both students and professionals who want to get a deeper understanding of economics. Recommended.

Your Business Review series is excellent. While this series was not designed for CLEPs or any of the other standardized examinations universities use to test accomplished areas of knowledge, I have found the entire series crucial for just that. Particularly as I am entering an MBA program. These volumes were precisely what I needed, and I have been telling everyone with even slight interest in these topics about them. Specifically, I am referring to the following books of the series (by title): Accounting, Economics, Finance, (Business) Statistics, Management, and Marketing.

this book breaks down the priciple charts and concepts and explains economics in a way that anyone could understand it. I'll be getting the other books in this series by this publisher because of the quality of this text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Referece September 11, 2007
This is a good reference book. The best part is that it is not intended to be a text book. It gives you just what you may need and is well organized.

This covers everything you need to know to pass. Some of the questions in the test felt like they came right out of the book. You can't ask for a better resource than this book.

I used this book as a supplement to a case-based economics course and couldn't be happier! I'd recommend for students at the undergrad and grad levels as a reference manual.
