Since a couple of days I’m the proud owner of an ipad. For a long time I have been able to resist buying one more of Apple’s gadgets, however after my Ipod touch was stolen it was time to give myself a little present. Now a new world has opened for me, the world of ebooks, and the world of digital reading. Of course I heard of all the great reading opportunities the ipad offers before, however I did not know that a website as Bookboon existed where you can find free ebooks download, and not just ebooks for free, now books you actually would like to read. In this blog I will discuss two of the textbooks I download from their website.
The essentials of microeconomics: You can choose out of different categories with in total more than 1000 titles. They offer textbooks, business books and travel guides. I, as an economics student, started off with their textbook on microeconomics. I always found this class utterly boring, which made passing this subject quite the challenging experience. However I made it! This 134 pages book gives quite an extensive overview of what is important when studying microeconomics. Short descriptions of the most essential definitions can be found on the side of every page. This could help students to understand the key concepts better. The essentials of macroeconomics: The second book I downloaded was on Macroeconomics. I’m still in the middle of this course and I will surely recommend this to my fellow students. The main elements which have been discussed during my lectures are explained in this book. Dry need to know theories are supported with more lively examples. I’m always a big fan of this style of writing. Besides that it helps me to understand concepts better it as well helps me to remember the theories better because it has been put in a context. How is this possible? : All the books which are offered on this website can be downloaded in pdf. Before downloading you need to enter your e-mail and answer some questions on if you are a student, what you study and where you study. It seems to me that the books are financed through small ads which appear every three to four pages. I don’t think this is annoying, since the companies which paid for those ads are financing my books!
