Who else is taking this next week Thursday?

I find that it will be far easier than Macro!

    I'm not ready for this... my teacher was absolutely horrible.
  • RahfulRahful Registered User Posts: 34 Junior Member
    I can relate.. My teacher was trash and I haven't reviewed any material since last semester... Can anyone help me up with some good links for not only practice tests, but also thorough review so I relearn all the stuff?

    I absolutely love economics, although I find micro more enjoyable than macro. Lucky me, I get to take the macro makeup. Damn you, AP World.

    How is Kaplan as a test prep book for micro/macro? I heard it's usually bad, but how is it for micro/macro?
  • gpowsanggpowsang Registered User Posts: 833 Member

    but i am useing 5 steps to a 5

    I also hear barrons does a great job in overprepping (it did wonders back when i was taking sat subject tests), but i dont know how it is as a cram book

    so far i love my 5 steps to a 5

    Oh, I am so f-ing screwed. Started self-studying 2 days ago, still on elasticity. Plus, I have to worry about world too.

    I'm soooo getting a 2...
  • gpowsanggpowsang Registered User Posts: 833 Member


    this is gonna be a cakewalk compared to macro
  • kh267kh267 Registered User Posts: 138 Junior Member

    Lol. Not. -_-

    35 pages of PR left to read.....
  • remytheratremytherat Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    imo, PR is really hard to read.
    because the subject topics are like all over the place x]
    i like 5steps better because its actually organized :D
  • kh267kh267 Registered User Posts: 138 Junior Member
    ^Yeah, I totally agree. The explanations are also not the best.

    For me, I feel that the easiest way to learn this stuff is to think of them in terms of calculus. Instead of reading a whole freaking page about marginal product and total product, just simply think of the marginal as the derivative of the total. Saves so much time.
