I need some help for my grad Econometrics class. The book we are using (Woolridge, Introductory Econometrics), doesn't go quite as deep into the math as the lecture does. As a result, it is difficult for me to follow what's going on, even if I read ahead. If anyone could recommend a text that would help me get a grasp on the material below, I would be very appreciative. (It doesn't need to be related to economics, I just want to understand the math better).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
