Main description

Building on the tremendous success of their best-selling Economics, Brue, McConnell, and Flynn have revised their one-semester approach in Essentials of Economics, 3e to provide a fresh alternative for the survey course. The result is a patient, substantive treatment of micro and macro topics appropriate for the introductory economics student, and fully integrated in the digital environment to provide instant remediation and feedback through McGraw-Hill's innovative assessment tool Connect Plus Economics. McGraw-Hill's adaptive learning component, LearnSmart, provides assignable modules that help students master core concepts in the course.

Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
