I was suprized at how easy and quick it was to order and receive the book.
Steve
Important terms appear in blue, the sections are very short for attention-span challenged students, and there are plenty of groovy pictures, charts, and graphs.

The book was in fantastic condition and showed hardly any evidence of previous use besides the one or two blank sticky notes inside of it.

Format: Hardcover
This is a high-school text, most appropriate for 10th or 11th grades, I would imagine. It does not divide economics into macro and micro. The publisher is Glencoe. The author is Clayton. The latest edition is 2005.

The text itself is finely done, clear, and carefully written. Important terms appear in blue, the sections are very short for attention-span challenged students, and there are plenty of groovy pictures, charts, and graphs. Chapters typically have three sections each.

Should you use this, you'll be able to tell your students: "You're never gonna have economics laid out as easy for you as it is here. If you can't learn it from this book, you simply can't learn it."

There are also many, many supplementary materials available for this text, from quizzes to math worksheets to final exams. Really, instructors love it too, since they don't have to lift a finger.

There is also a section in the back that recaps the major ideas of each chapter in Spanish. In a pinch, you could use this book in a Spanish economics class, provided it was only temporary.

The book was used in my 9th grade economics class and the teacher recommended to read on till the end (the class had to slow down for class mates who need more time to absorb the contents, hence, he could not cover the book entirely). It was worth buying a copy for summer reading since it is easy to read/comprehend and very interesting.

just what i thought it would be. high school level economics, with big pictures! hehe .
I had to start somewhere, and this is a good book to learn from, especially if you just barely made it through your last year of high school and didnt care one bit about econ and civics. its time to go back to school folks. be informed, the government and big brother arent going to take care of us. we are livestock on tax farms and tax plantations.
we need to be the smartest, most informed versions of ourselves we can be! learn as much as you can.... for cheap!
stay thirsty my friends.

I purchased "Economics: Principles & Practices" for my grandchild from Amazon.com at a substancially lower cost than getting it from the school bookstore. I was suprized at how easy and quick it was to order and receive the book. It was in perfect shape and a life saver for my grandchild. I would not hesitate in doing more business with Amazon.com.
