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

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.
