This review is for Principles of Economics (7th Edition). I accidentally bought this book instead of Principals of Macroeconomics which looks almost the same. After I received it, I realized it was the incorrect book. I went the publisher's website and did some research. This book includes all the information I needed for the Macro class. It also contains the full contents of both the publisher's Macro and Micro books. Turns out this book was a great book to keep for future references.
In addition to this being a great find, this book is very well written and I had no trouble understanding all the points.

From a first-time macroeconomic student's point of view, this book sucked. The glossary was very poor making it troublesome to look up unfamiliar terms. Each chapter makes frequent reference to charts and graphs that are located several pages away, causing you to have to shuffle back and forth between pages, trying to decipher difficult new concepts. This book also assumes some prior knowledge of economic concepts, and moves very quickly through progressively more complex material. Thumbs down from a new student's perspective.
