4-0 out of 5 stars Encylopedic Treatment of Econometrics
If you have taken a course in econometrics, this is one of the best econometrics references that you can have on your bookshelf.There is ample discussion on linear regression models and all the required concepts from mathematical statistics that are needed.It just hits on time series and panel data, but clearly those are topics for two different books altogether.This book gets updated frequently and the format is reorganized to make things easier to understand.However, some times the reorganization does not work for the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for graduate students
This is a good advanced book in econometrics. I would definitely not recommend it to undergrad students unless they are really comfortable with matrix algebra and statistics. It is not an introductory book, but, if the reader has already taken some econometrics courses and needs a more advanced text, this book is very useful, especially for graduate students. It is particularly good at explaining concepts in a way that slightly easier books do not. I use Greene's book as a reference and I have personally contacted William Greene to ask him some questions and he is very friendly and willing to help. I would only suggest using another book for understanding time series since Greene's coverage on that is not great.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good coverage on cross-sectional, but not enough of panel data
This book does an excellent job in covering cross-sectional and microeconometric models (Stata codes for all examples in the book are available from UCLA's webside). However, the exposure to panel data is limited. For a theoretical overview of panel data econometrics, I'd recommend Hsiao and Baltagi. For applied work, Edward Frees wrote a good book, although his book is more from the social science perspective (SAS and Stata codes are provided).

1-0 out of 5 stars The best? Not for me (and everyone I know).
Clearly this product is overrated. In my opinion the book is a complete mess, with definitions, propositions and theorems mixed with the main text and not clearly evidenced from it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Gem
Wooldridge's "Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data" is a gem.As a student of applied microeconomics, I found reading his undergraduate book "Introductory Econometrics" is a great complement of reading this graduate text -- especially part I of the UG book (especially the parts of interaction terms, dummy variables); part III (panel data) might be too chatty.I think both of his books worth every penny that I paid.Although, I think Hayashi text is great, maybe it is geared toward time series econometricians.For example, Wooldridge's example of omitted variable bias is clearer to me (using wage-education regression from labor economics and compute the asymptotic inconsistency of OLS estimator with omitted variable bias), compared to Hayashi's simultaneity bias.Both are nice illustration of endogenity, but I prefer Woolridge's text. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book for TS
If you are thinking of mastering TS this is the book to start with. Do not get intimidated however with all the symbols and notations, the author does a pretty good job explaining each and every equation. A seperate book is needed for application eg RATs handbook by Enders.

4-0 out of 5 stars A review of Time Series Analysis
The book provides a good overview of the analysis of time series and it also gives a good treatise of the economitric background of the use of estimation methods.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most careful ecmtx textbook I know
As you may guess from the title, I loved Hamilton's book. I must definitely disagree with all those who find it too technical. Rather on the contrary, I would say. Admittedly, entire pages with greek letters look intimidating at first glance. But what Hamilton actually does is making a huge effort (unlike most of his competitors) to actually explain the details of the derivations, thereby helping the reader a lot. You'll learn to appreciate this a lot by the time you start developing sth. on your own rather than simply applying existing techniques.

3-0 out of 5 stars Broad coverage, but not for the faint-hearted
Written by a University of Chicago professor, this book comprehensively covers times series topics relative to investment and trading-oriented finance (i.e., Wall Street money-making machines).Treatment is generally clear and thorough, but an advanced math and stat background is an absolute prerequisite for understanding the materials.
5-0 out of 5 stars For self-learners and for future reference
This is the bible of financial time series analysis.All the main methods are included, with each of them being well described and provided with readable examples.You physics quants out there who are new to finance can use this as a self-contained textbook, while you stats guys and gals can use this as a quick reference.The treatment of VaR is the only real weakness, and you will be hindered a little if you don't have access to S-Plus.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best textbook I have ever read
First of all, it is well written in a very practical point of view. The whole book is aimed fullly to real financial data(appended in the author's web). People can gain not only the well-explained theories but the hand-on experience with data analysis using SPLUS or any other package.

I liked it at the time but as I advance in time series I find that one could be much better prepared in this area from an intro course.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Before I bought this book, I was debating with myself on whether I should buy Gujarati (2002) or this book. I employed two criteria in making this decision: clarity of exposition and completeness of coverage. I think Gujarati does slightly better on the first criterion but Wooldridge does considerably better on the second criterion. So, the weighted average of both criteria favors Wooldridge (mean squared error?).

5-0 out of 5 stars Wooldridge is best
Wooldridge is best (review refers to 2nd edition).

I quoted those names not to boast anything, but to express my strong disappointment and frustration against this book or the authors, that I really feel being cheated of my valuable time and price of the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Some Errors
I was a graduate student enrolled in another reviewer's Econometrics class, and the course was designed largely around this text. I highly recommend it for applied microeconomic topics. Microeconometrics is more current and more comprehensive than any other Econometrics text out there. However, it is definitely a first edition. There are typos and errors throughout.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for Empirical Economists
I am using this text to teach a first-year graduate course in econometrics (following a mathematical stats course) at the University of Florida.Myself and my students have been very happy with the intuitive approach of the book, and I have personally appreciated the good end-of-chapter problems that I can assign to my students.This is a GREAT addition to my library and should be on the shelf of any grad student who works with data.

3-0 out of 5 stars Useful textbook with a "small" problem
This is a very useful "cookbook", which includes non only the standard parametric models (linear and nonlinear), but also basics of non-parametric and semi-parametric estimation. Also, foundations are laid out for important topics such as bootstrap, measurement error, program evaluation, clustering and stratification. These are all topics which turn out to be crucial for applied work, but which are usually left out of most/all textbooks. Overall, I am happy this book came out.

4-0 out of 5 stars sophisticated maths
Neftci takes us on a mathematically sophisticated tour of financial derivatives. The treatment is on a level akin to a senior-level undergrad text on physics or engineering. Indeed, to a reader who might come from that background, there will be a lot of similarities and familiar ideas.
5-0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Introduction to Serious Math, Serious Finance, and Real-World Applications
Neftci's book is easily grouped into a large number of texts that provide graduate level (considerable more rigorous than the MBA version) introductions to mathematical finance.Some are written for MBA with want to be exposed to as little math as possible without short changing the financial and valuation aspects and with considerable attention to a broad range of financial products and applications (Hull's classic comes to mind).Others are extremely implementation driven and are more a hybrid of finance and computer programming (Duffy, London, Wilmont).Still others are math books that speak above the heads of almost all practitioners and cover the finance topics poorly (or not at all).
3-0 out of 5 stars Not a useful book
The author tried to circumvent the difficulty associated with the math behind derivative pricing by explaining the sujbect in a simple way that requires the minimum knowledge of math. Unfortunately it was overdone in this respect and therefore led to non-straightforward overelaboration that made simple things even more complicated. There are both typo and non-typo errors in the book, whick could make a fairly long erratum. For example, on p.281, Eq.(28) missed the last term from the previous equation.As mentioned by other readers, the notations were used inconsistently in this book. Again on p.281, the volatility sigma was switched to the one mupltiplied by the asset price without giving a notice. The subscript t was abused for both partial derivative with respect to time t and the function depending on t. English doesn't seem to be the author's first language. One of evidences of this is on p.336, in the second paragraph after Eq.(112), where "the value in current dollars" obviously should be "the current value in dollars". In addition, the author really needs to change his sloppy writing style. Footnotes were definitely abused, many of which are unnecessary. Many equations were unnecessarily written and numbered again and again. For example, Eq.(4) on p.276 is written and numbered again on p.277, and again on p.280.

The coverage of this book is as comprehensive as there is no need to hold any similar book describing the health economics on the whole. The pollicy description is mainly US focused and less stress has been put on the international perspective. Nonetheless, Phelps' Health economics is for me the first to take into hand when preparing slights, talks or just looking for simple answer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference and/or supplement for a standard text
I used this book as a quick REFERENCE when I worked at a trading floor, but if you're taking an advanced business statistics class, then I recommend that you buy a copy of this book. In it, you will find a concise, clear review of the theory, followed immediately by many problems with detailed solutions. Nothing is worse than in a math class than getting hung up on some idea during the semester. You will fall behind and probably not catch up. Semester after semester, my students tell me this Schaum's made a positive difference in their understanding.

This was an extremely useful book for the understanding of Statistics and Econometrics.Each topic had examples to show how the formulas work.The computer chapter went over the programming in SAS, Excel, and Eviews for the problems in the book.Best of all, the problems had answers.This is a must-have for beginning statistics and econometrics since it starts from scratch, and for theory students in search of an application. ...

this book is excellent because it provides us with many examples and detailed explanations.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not sure if it is introductory
I think the book is not written in a very organized way.It's not a book for picking up time series quickly.It's saturated with information, which I'm not sure if it's necessary for implementation.I have no problem following the math, however, if I want to pick up something and implement it within a day or two, the book is a bit harder to digest.Wouldn't think this is an undergraduate course book as it covers convergence in probability or mean-squared, which I learnt in PhD courses, not even master level.

3-0 out of 5 stars From the experts in the field
Michel Dacorogna and the team at the former Olsen & Associates are well-known experts in the field of foreign exchange rate data analysis, and their book provides us with a vast, useful source of information. Unfortunately for students and other beginners, the book is written like a compilation of papers and review articles, the opposite of pedagogical, and with an awful choice of 'computerese' notation (MA(t,n)=sum(EMA(t',k)... etc) that makes Boudhaud-Potters look easy in comparison. More to the point, even their noncomputerese notation is difficult to follow. I hope for a very different second edition written pedagogically for students of this growing and important field. On the positive side, data analyses are performed using logarithmic returns, not price increments. Workers in the field who consult this text will find it helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the new millenium...that's what we need.
The book covers a wide range of topics related to high-frequency data in Finance. There is a very detailed approach to tackle a huge amount of data and to deal with its based stylized facts. The book triggers the reader's desire to update his knowledge in the field of finance.

5-0 out of 5 stars More Than An Introduction
This one of the few books on high frequency finance is a most welcome tothe literature. The book is useful not only for people who are new tothe subject but also for researchers in the field since it is a mostuniform treatment of many topics. From adaptive data cleaning (chapter4) to intraday and weekly seasonality (chapter 6) and real time tradingmodels (chapter 11), it covers a broad range of topics specific to highfrequency financial time series analysis. Chapters on volatilitymodeling (Chapter 8), forecasting (chapter 9) and correlation andmultivariate risk (chapter 10) are enlightening especially for riskexposure analysis and risk management purposes. Finally, the theextensive bibliography is a precious source for those who would like toexplore certain topics in detail. I highly recommend it for practitionersas well as researchers in the field. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to learn to carry out a choice model
This book is massive, and hence the term "primer" may be a little misleading. But if you really want to understand how to model choice data for a range of models, the book is outstanding. Other books focus more on the econometrics of the models, which are pivotal to know. But this book builds upon that by walking you through a series of increasingly-complex models, allowing you to understand why you need to perform particular modeling tasks.
2-0 out of 5 stars An ambiguous oriented book
The whole book serves as a software (NLogit) manual. If you already know about the discrete choice analysis, you might be able to find out the messages that the authors try to convey. And it contains barely new information, so it doesn't help you anyway. But if you are new to this area, this is not the good book for you to start. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good intro and review of the material
Having read a few books on time series analysis, Enders provides the best introduction to the area.The approach is simple and practically oriented.Explaining the basics of the area with limited use of math is beneficial.With this area developing so rapidly, a new, updated edition would be a welcome book on my shelf.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent as a practical quide - a must have handbook - recent development are here too
I bought this book as an introductory reading to time series. And found it very easy to understand, both the theoretical explanations and practical applications. I think it is a "must have handbook" for any economics student. The last edition also covers the recent panel unit root tests, not the 2nd generation ones but Im, Pesaran, Shin panel test is explanained pretty well. Graphical illustrations of series and visual detection of possible problems are nice for beginners. Also, shows how to analyze data step-by-step with plenty of examples. In overall I think it is a great investment for those doing empirical studies and/or starting to learn/work with time series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical book on time series econometrics
I am a Financial Engineer working primarily in risk management. Over the past few months I've had to study up on time series-related topics (both GARCH and cointegration-based analyses). This book is excellent for someone who needs to find time-series information and then apply it to a problem in a hurry. The explanations are clear and intuitive, yet mathematically precise. There are plenty of examples on how to apply techniques to real world problems, including lucid discussions of the proper statistical tests to use for the various methodologies.

4-0 out of 5 stars An oldie but goodie
For the past ten years, this boook was the standard of financial time series and cross sectional analysis.There are several more recent books on the subject, but as the first good book in the field, it is still keeping up.Lot of the derivation in the book is a bit spotty - but that is expected at this level of sophistication and originality.There are some frustrating parts in the book, but if you cannot chew through that material, you should probably read an easier book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely useless
I'm not sure what the audience for this extremely poorly written book is.Is it graduate-level students?If so, this book will drive them totally crazy and depressed, thanks to its confusing structure, lack of contextual motivation for the topics covered, and nonsensical, semi-rigorous mathematical treatment of the subject.Is it "quant" practitioners?If so, it'll leave them more confused and pessimistic about their trade than ever -- or just leave them feeling disappointed and frustrated, which was how I felt when I tried to read this book.
3-0 out of 5 stars Very Good but Not Enough
I just used this book in my master in finance course and think its very good but a bit outdated and incomplete. I was able to benefit from it, but only because of my previous strong finance, econometrics and computing knowledge. Without any of my skills i would be surely lost. The sad part is i cant remember another book filling its niche. Maybe only John Cochrane "Asset Pricing" overlaps well in some subjects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good for learning
This book is a shortened version of "Learning and Practising Econometrics (1993)", which itself is a shortened version of "The Theory and Practice of Econometrics (1982)". 4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent intuition BUT A POOR BRIDGE TO THE DREADFUL GREENE
This book is the best book to use for the very first course in econometrics. It takes you by the hand to teach you all you need in terms of the basics. 4-0 out of 5 stars carter makes me not-so-afraid of metrics...
this is one of those econometrics (i'll call it "metrics" from now on to save on typing) books which you know has to cover alot of the slow, boring stuff which lecturers expect students to know by the time they take metrics options and hated by undergraduates. having said that, this book does it quite well. one thing i hate in metrics texts is dense mathematical proofs. especially proofs which assume the reader knows other proofs intimately. this book nicely avoids that, dropping in an adequate and useful amount of proofs, especially the Gauss-Markov Theorem and a proof of why OLS estimation outshines any other method in simple regression analysis. the book does this without being overwhelming - in my opinion, mathematics has to be appreciated through discussion and argument, which Hill et al do quite admirably. Also, metrics is about interpretation of results, not just calculating them, and this book keeps that in mind very well from beginning to end. The reason i gave this book 4 stars is simple. when i was doing my last minute cramming for exams, i was able to move through the book quickly and easily, whilst still appreciating the main points, the big picture, and also the subtleties of more advanced topics like GLS, moments-based estimation and distributed lags in a short space of time. the book also comes with useful end-of-chapter "should know" points and problems. the best thing about the problems is the "real-world" nature of the tasks, often drawing on real-life data and economic intuition. using that data and being able to become comfortable with computer techniques is the most vital thing to a beneficial study of metrics. i found gujarati's "basic econometrics" a nice companion to this book (but then again everyone likes gujarati to some extent), but mostly i was satisfied with this book as a stand-alone manual to second-year metrics studies, good for laying the foundations for studies in topics like maximum likelihood estimation and financial econometrics. oh, and it's small and not too heavy. good for carrying around to classes all day! ...
