Essential Mathematics for Economics and Business by Teresa Bradley
"Essential Mathematics for Economics and Business" has become established as one of the leading introductory books on mathematics. It combines a non rigorous approach to mathematics with applications in economics and business. The fundamental mathematical concepts are explained as simply and as briefly as possible, using a wide selection of worked examples, graphs and real world applications. This second edition includes new material on important topics such as: currency conversion, annuities, debt repayment, sinking funds and Excel for linear algebra; sections rewritten in a clearer and more accessible style; and includes a supplementary web page. "Excellent for those coming to maths after school/university...it is absolutely excellent as a text to get you up to speed very quickly. The explanations are clear and very well thought out without sacrificing important concepts. I couldn't recommend it highly enough as a text book to give you a leg up into more involved mathematical economics." - Amazon.co.uk 24 August 2004. "the most comprehensive reader in this topic yet, this book is an essential aid to the avid economist who loathes mathematics!" - Amazon.co.uk 25 January 2002.
