Sloman Economics is a fully interactive and user-friendly elearning package offering an interactive introduction to the principles of economics adapted to mirror and support the text book, Economics by John Sloman.

The course covers the whole of the syllabus for a first year degree course in economics and provides broad and rapid access to key concepts for undergraduate students of business and management. The software offers hours of tutorial material and includes: extensive relevant theory, interactive exercises, self-assessment questions, economic databases and an economic glossary.

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, Sloman’s Economics has proven to be extremely popular, with consistently positive feedback from students. Comprehensive and completely up-to-date, the sixth edition, along with the supporting WinEcon course, is the ideal introduction for students studying economics for the first time. And it’s carefully designed to enhance learning and help students to improve their marks too!
