I am Starting an MAEconomics 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.

It depends on your level in math now, of course. From one of the sites I have bookmarked: http://www.economicsnetwork.ac.uk/teach ... omists.htm

I think I need to brush up on linear algebra some more be sucessful in graduate level econometrics. Although, I'm decent. I want to be great at it. So time to study even more! Thanks for the links.

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

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.

In my case it would mean... enjoyment, and maybe some selffulfillment?
