Sloman, Hinde & Garratt Economics for Business is a fully interactive and user-friendly elearning package offering an interactive introduction to the principles of business economics adapted to mirror and support the text book, Business Economics by John Sloman, Kevin Hinde and Dean Garratt.

The course is arranged into chapters to match the text, with each chapter divided into easy to manage sections containing topics which comprise interactive tutorials supported by a virtual tutor.

The expertly authored tutorials include theory and graphic enhanced interactive exercises which allow you to interact with the models and see how changes you make affect graphs, etc., helping you to understand the theory, plus interactive questions to test your understanding as your progress through the tutorial.

Many topics include links to additional and more advanced information and exercises, so you can tailor your learning to suit your own individual strengths and weaknesses. And the easy to use navigation allows you to dip into topics if you don't want to work through a whole chapter or section.

The software also includes easily accessible section introductions and summaries written by John Sloman and an economics glossary and notebook, all ideal for revision.

The text, Economics for Business makes the intriguing subject of economics more accessible and relevant to those studying it as part of a business-related degree. The book, supported by the WinEcon course, covers all of the major principles of economics but its focus throughout is firmly on applying these economic principles to the real world of business. This practical approach ensures a highly accessible and an ideal economics course for business students.
