ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN ACCOUNTING AT NEPEAN TAFE, SEMESTER 2 2013

The book aims to simplify the array of confusing economic analyses and present a straightforward and balanced approach that effectively teaches the application of basic economics principles. Only essential material is included in the book and key concepts are explained in clear and simple terms.
Written in an engaging and user-friendly manner, the book is designed for non-majors (although can also be used in these courses)


  Each chapter contains a number of current real-world exercises and topics for discussion


  You make the call: in each chapter, discussion/reflection questions ask students to answer a simple question related to the topic being discussed. Answers are provided at the end of the chapter


  International focus: chapter topics are highlighted in a global context in a mini-case, with 'what do you think?' questions


  Economics and ethics: (not included in all chapters) references to ethical considerations are made throughout the text. Various sections deal at some length with the relationship between ethics and economics


  Analyse the issue: in each chapter, the authors provide a brief case study for students to analyse


  In Summary: summarises key points that have been discussed in each section of the text


  Margin weblinks include a URL and a short description of useful information relevant to the topics being discussed, and encourage students to visit the sites for more information


  Margin glossary term and definition: close to the text reference for quick comprehension


  Search me!: directs students to relevant topics in our online Search me! economic database


  The summary at the end of each chapter includes graphs and causation chains to refresh students' memories of the chapter topics
