Hi all, I am a first year student of business and economics (bachelor of science degree). I am studying this because I find economics very interesting and want to understand how it all works. Before I decided to study this I was hesitating between economics and economentrics. In the end I choose economics, because it is more in depth about the economy and economentrics is more into maht and creating models to explain things in the economy. Because I want to understand the economy and to explain it. I also want to learn about economentrics, therefor I want to self study this in the comming summer vacation. Because of this I have done some research and I found out that you need to know some math beforehand like lineair algebra. Can you guys recommend me some good self study books or resources to learn more about math (in the field of economics and economentrics) and economentrics. I just want to learn more math in my free time so that I hopefully can understand the math in my study better. I also want to learn more math so that I can study economentrics also in my free time.
