Worth buying & using even if you don’t take the class.
From Chris Biehler – Economics Professor in charge of the project sent this email:
“…the new ECO 103 workbook has been delivered on time to the MCC Bookstore as of yesterday. I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the time and effort that went into the creation of the 5th Edition this summer.
After receiving continuous feedback from our active dedicated teaching adjuncts and full-time faculty who are deeply experienced in teaching ECO 103, it became clear as to what revisions and updates needed to happen in and for this new edition. Our goal was to completely reorganize, update, create new and make a more ‘student centered’ and ‘instructor friendly’ compliment to the textbook and our teaching modalities.
Over 150 combined man hours went into this process. The result is a product that is essentially has ‘nothing’ that resembles the first edition whatsoever! Each project has been completely reviewed and updated, and most cases completely revised in both content, objectives and format. New projects have been created and added. Projects that did not meet the standard of excellence and value have been deleted….
Most of all, I would like to thank the excellent and dedicated work of Lauren Blew and Donna Hickling. Without their brilliant and experienced input, the result would never have been achieved.”
