"I use Wooldridge because it provides a nice balance of equations,
examples, and well-written intuitive descriptions of econometrics.
The text provides clarity, discussion, and analytic rigor, with
chapter problems that are both paper and computer-based. The review
of chapters in the Instructor's Guide is useful, especially as a
guide in deciding how to pare down the topics to a reasonable size
for one semester."
"One of the biggest strengths of this Wooldridge text is the way in which it brings together the majority of mainstream econometric models in an easy to understand and coherent manner that is suitable to a wide audience from undergraduates, graduates, and a reference text for applied economists."
"The most important strength of this text is its close connection (in terms of both style/structure and content) to the way empirical research is actually conducted. In particular, the emphasis on whether or not an estimated relationship can be considered causal is central to econometric practice today, and this book, unlike many others, makes that clear. The book is very comprehensive, with a wide range of topics that other introductory econometrics books do not always include but that are very common in research (e.g. panel data)."
