Economics at University of NottinghamWatch
I am looking to hopefully start Economics at the Uni of Notts is September (provided I get in with the new system for attaining grades), I was wondering if anyone has a list of the necessary Econ textbooks for first year, preferably specific to Uni of Notts but I assume most the resources and textbooks are similar for Econ courses at different unis.
Email module convenors to check what they intend to use next academic year as it changes (found here: https://mynottingham.nottingham.ac.u...RSE_EXTRCT.GBL). Probably easier than wasting money on books you won't be using.
That is super useful thank you, in addition, I have a while now until I start Uni. How would you say I could best use my time in order to be ready for Economics/be able to be in a good position for when I start applying for my spring week ? As I did not do maths A-Level I am trying to expose myself to key topics that would be useful e.g. Differentiation and Statistics.
Getting familiar with differentiation, statistics and probability with YouTube videos would be good too, and make sure you're comfortable with some basic things like algebra and rearranging equations.
As optional modules, I'd recommend Calculus and its Applications and Applied Algebra available in the Maths Dept (if you don't do them in first year, consider them in your second). They really helped me feel more comfortable with the maths used in economics and I didn't do A level Maths either.
