As it is, the book does a good job of covering basic issues essential to using OLS regression for applied work in most institutional settings. The book is written so that students find it more accessible than other texts, though most still find it pretty heavy going. The book is replete with graphs and charts, clarifying important issues. Examples are numerous and instructive, as are questions for students to answer and problems for them to solve.
More and more academic majors are requiring their students to gain a working knowledge of regression analysis. Stock and Watson's book makes that task less onerous, and it recognizes that most students will not have to go beyond the core topics needed to work with useful but relatively simple models. A good book.
Leaves much to be desired... I was lost in the lectures, so this book got me through some of the concepts, but it could have been better. (In comparison, for a previous stat course I used the book 'Statistics' by Freedman, which used excellent visuals and graphs to really drive the points home.)
If you have another option, take that option. If not, supplement (or supplant) with another book or online resources.
My biggest gripe is that there are few examples. I really took this for granted, and didn't notice how important it was until they were taken out. In classes like math, you can easily get lost in all the notation in each formula. Examples are important because they show you how to use that formula in a real application. The book lacks examples, and this really makes it harder to understand what Stock and Watson are talkin about.
Another thing I'd like are answers to their problems. This is just useful so that you can check whether you are doing the problems at the end of the chapter right. Otherwise, you're completely clueless on how well you are doing.

The book was came with the binding nearly torn all the way off, but I guess that's the risk of buying used. Otherwise, it's a pretty standard textbook.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
