4.0 out of 5 stars useful course work book 9 April 2002
Format:Paperback
This is definitely a book for those on a course rather than wanting a just good read or overview of current thought on economic strategy and modelling.
As someone on a distance learning MBA, the use of applied case studies make it very relevant. All the exercises make it easy for tutors to recommend
The CD ROM is worth the cost of the book alone

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book.... 26 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As I am studying a business studies degree, I found this book very useful although I am only studying economics for one semester. It covers all the basics and relates it all to the business environment. Even though it was an economics books, it was specifically written for a business student.
