The 11th Edition of Arnold's Economics takes video tutorials to another level. Previously, Arnold's Video Office Hours provided students access to the author himself, explaining key concepts much the way an instructor would during office hours. NOW, students can benefit from two new video types that will further explain difficult concepts and homework roadblocks. Students can play and replay the tutorials as they work through homework assignments or prepare for quizzes and tests, almost as though they had an instructor by their side the whole time. Ideal for homework, study outside the classroom, or distance learning, these tutorials give students extra instructional help whenever and wherever it's most useful.
