A nice little book, but assumes a bit from the student,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mathematics for Economics and Finance: Methods and Modelling (Paperback)
This book is a good and fairly clear guide to mathematical applications in Economics and Finance. Plenty of explanations and worked examples in order to help the student solve problems. However, this is not a text for people who are completely unfamiliar with algebra, trigonometry and precalculus. If you are a complete mathematical noob (as I was), it is best to use this text in conjunction with books like Booth's 'Foundation Mathematics' or Bradley's 'Essential Mathematics for Economics and Business' in order to explore the basics better.
