Description:

Students need to learn two skills in this course: they need to master the requisite micro theory, and at the same time develop their problem-solving skills. Microeconomics has become a market leader because Perloff presents theory in the context of real, data-driven examples, and then develops intuition through his hallmark Solved Problems. Students gain a practical perspective, seeing how models connect to real-world decisions being made in today's firms and policy debates. It is easy to encourage students to practice working problems with MyEconLab, the online homework and tutorial system. MyEconLab includes exercises and Solved Problems pulled right from the book, As well as Economics Videos featuring ABC News. For more information visit MyEconLab and Economics Videos. For a calculus-based microeconomics course, consider Perloff's new text, Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus.
