5.0 out of 5 stars This book is bullet proof
This book was used for a course at the graduate level. Given the fact that it's almost free and the best of its kind, it shouldn't exist economically speaking. I praise the attention to details and the timelessness: this is a book from 2000 and it's still standing. Some fancy new topics may be added in the course when the big work is done.

The book is very well...

3.0 out of 5 stars Very nice book
I am using this book for a graduate econometrics. This book is deceptively easy to read as it skips many onorous details, which can be discovered in review questions. My math background is probably not as solid as it should be, and I do not major in economics either.

This review is from: Econometrics (Hardcover)
This book was used for a course at the graduate level. Given the fact that it's almost free and the best of its kind, it shouldn't exist economically speaking. I praise the attention to details and the timelessness: this is a book from 2000 and it's still standing. Some fancy new topics may be added in the course when the big work is done.

The book is very well built up, and will guide you through advanced econometrics. The introduction states that prior exposure of econometrics is not required, and rightly so (even the mathematics are fairly easy, albeit sometimes tedious): you should forget what you know and start again from the basics, as Hayashi does with the discussion of OLS in the first chapters. A few chapters later, everything will become clear and fit together. The downside of this stepwise approach is that it is less suited for a quick reference. Therefore I would compare it with a vaccination: take it before you need it and renew every so many years.

This review is from: Econometrics (Hardcover)
I am using this book for a graduate econometrics. This book is deceptively easy to read as it skips many onorous details, which can be discovered in review questions. My math background is probably not as solid as it should be, and I do not major in economics either. Hence this book is probably perfect for someone who is able to see the language of mathematics that has been skipped or implied. I need more support to understand proofs, hence only three stars. Someone with a different background and ability to see the derivations and proofs probably enjoys this book up to all five stars.

This review is from: Econometrics (Hardcover)
I get suspicous of books claiming to be "graduate econometrics text books", for PhD's as no one book could cover this topic, I always suggest Hamilton for time series and Greene for cross sectional and limited dependent variable work, as for panels well... Arellano is okay but not great... this is a gap i.e. the definitive panel book.

However Hayashi provides a comprehensive guide and an essential reference book if a little light to base a literature review around.

You won't be unhappy buying this book and it's better than Hendry (anything is).
