The strength of this book lies in the good examples they use. The book is not dense and mostly the explanation is very
concise. The examples they have is very interesting and might attract students' attention quite well.
However, I found this book's explanation is not very biginner
friendly. The explanation is often unnecessary compliated with too much math, so it might not be good for introductory econometrics class (it could make a good supplemental reading).
Gujarati's, Kennedy, etc has similar coverage but the explanation is much more plain and reader friendly.
The crucial problem which makes this book less than desirable is, amount of typos - I'd say one typo in a few pages on average. Although they have listed erratas on the publisher's web-site, unfortunately they cover relatively low fraction of all the typos this book has (could be inevitable problem with the first edition book). End-of-chapter questions and slides suffer the similar problem, so when my professor did not catch the problem in the end-of-chapter question, I just wasted too much time trying to figure out the answers, which was the worst part of using this book.
As a student, the last one was incredibly annoying. The book contains no answers section, so it makes it hard to find material to practice before exams and quizzes. It would only take a few (10ish?) extra pages to include answers. For a book that is primarily going to be used as a class textbook, that's unacceptable.
Good in what it does, but it needs more.
This book gave a minimal number of examples, and they weren't at all applicable to the coursework or the coinciding material in the book. They really didn't even relate to the text at all, and didn't help give any insight into the material. If you're a college professor looking for a college Econometrics textbook to use, don't use this one, for your students sake.
