4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing as a Textbook, Aug. 1 2011
By 
This review is from: Microeconomics: Canada in the Global Environment, Seventh Edition with MyEconLab (Paperback)
It would appear few of the reviews discuss its merits as a textbook and so I'll offer a few words on what you're actually buying. I had the good fortune of taking both a Micro and Macro course side by side. One used Lipsey (Macro), Micro used Parkin and Bade.

The vast majority of students I talked to preferred Parkin and Bade as they felt it explained the concepts better. The MyEconlab contents also helped to reinforce the lessons, though I will caution that it occasionally will be fussy on the graphs you draw (for those who are being marked on them, I suggest doing the practice quizzes before if you can). The chapters are relatively short, allowing for quick bursts of study, and there are lots of graphs to help illustrate the concepts. One major edge this textbook has are the 'Conversations with Economists' at the end of each section, which make for fascinating reading.

But a student is not likely to want to review the textbook purchase (they don't have any say in the matter) and so I assume a given review reader may be considering this textbook as a way to learn economics on their own. Parkin and Bade will do a fine job of this in an easygoing style, but for a more comprehensive view I must recommend Ragan and Lipsey Microeconomics, Thirteenth Canadian Edition with MyEconLab.

As I will likely turn to the other text more often for review of concepts, I gave a 4/5, but I am keeping this text both for the interviews and for the shorter treatment of basic concepts.

This was my first time buying on-line, therefore I was a little hesitant, but it turned out greater then I thought it would, the book was at a fair price, took around 5 days for delivery and was in number 1 condition, still in its plastic and all.
