I rented this and expected it to be a used book but its practically new.
Colleen
Although he does cover some of the equations, he misses many of them (even the ones in the chapter exercise).

An introductory book for microeconomics, so both undergrad and grad level students can benefit from it.

The only draw back is that some of the mathematical derivations did not show every step and make it hard to follow.

Format: Hardcover
Overall, I would not recommend this text. The quality of the content is up and down. Although many of paragraphs explain economic theory well (not great, but well), others lack significant clarity. For example, the author gives the formula for price elasticity. Then he goes on to say that price elasticity is usually a negative number and what that means in economic terms. Next he states that "Sometimes we refer to the magnitude of the price elasticity-- i.e. its absolute size". He never explains when or why we refer to its price elasticity. More importantly, the author does an extremely poor job of illustrating the mathematical concepts. Although he does cover some of the equations, he misses many of them (even the ones in the chapter exercise). Likewise, the author does do much to help the reader work step-by-step through the problems. Even the most savvy economy students may need to review every step of a problem to understand where he or she went wrong. I think so other customer said it, and I agree— expect to buy some additional readings.

This is a decent textbook for microeconomics, however it is not as ideal for those taking an introductory course. Many of the examples of economic principles are helpful, however others make concepts more confusing. May need to supplement readings with another textbook or online resources.

first, thanks to the seller very much for delivering the item on time, the book has new examples and questions, so it is not the same as 7th edition. An introductory book for microeconomics, so both undergrad and grad level students can benefit from it.
