Good Review Books

I am Starting an MA-Economics program in August. I was wondering if anybody had any economics math books that would be a good review and brain sharpener before I start. Kind of like a Math for Economics workbook with problems is what I'm going for.

Re: Good Review Books

It depends on your level in math now, of course. From one of the sites I have bookmarked:

Re: Good Review Books

I'd like to learn econometrics myself. I minored in econ but only took one econometrics class, an introduction.

Re: Good Review Books

In my case, putting down on my resume that I am skilled in econometrics/econometric forecasting means more money and more opportunities. So In preperation for this program this summer, ive been trying to get up on that skill.

Re: Good Review Books

In my case it would mean... enjoyment, and maybe some self-fulfillment?
