Spring 2013 Classes
I will be teaching Introduction to Economics (ECON 100) as well as the African Economies (ECON/AFS 228).
Economics 100C & 100D
Roger LeRoy Miller, Daniel K. Benjamin, Douglas C. North, THE ECONOMICS OF PUBLIC ISSUES, 17th EDITION, Prentice-Hall, 2012 [ISBN-10: 0138021139; ISBN-13: 978-0138021139].
Robert H. Frank and Ben S. Bernanke, PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS BRIEF EDITION, 2nd EDITION, McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 2011.
Students must purchase access to online course-related software for this text!
I STRONGLY SUGGEST WAITING TO PURCHASE UNTIL AFTER YOU ATTEND THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS.
Students will not need to purchase the text book during the first two weeks of class.
Students have three options:
1. Buy the access already bundled with a hardcopy of a new textbook at the Brewer Bookstore [$221.25]. This will give access to CONNECT online course software plus an online version of the text.
2. Buy access to an online textbook bundled with CONNECT online software. When class begins, this will be available for $119.00. No need for a paper texbook with this option.
3. Buy access to CONNECT online software but separately purchase a hardcopy of a used textbook. When class begins, access to the required software will be available for $49.99. Also be sure to check out if it is a better deal to buy the bundled hardcopy new text from Brewer rather than to buy a used text plus pay the extra $50 for software. WARNING: When buying an unbundled text, make sure it is the correct version and edition [ISBN-10: 0073511439; ISBN-13: 978-0073511436].
