First course in Econometrics in Economics Departments at better schools, also Economic/Business Forecasting. This is a pretty standard econometric text book. I found it useful, but I'm sure they are other text books that cover the same material.

First course in Econometrics in Economics Departments at better schools, also Economic/Business Forecasting. Statistics prerequisite but no calculus. Slightly higher level and more comprehensive than Gujarati Basic Econometrics (M-H, 1996). P-R covers more time series and forecasting. P-R coverage is a notch below Johnston-DiNardo (M-H, 97) and requires no matrix algebra.

Econometric Models and Economic Forecasts. by Robert S. Pindyck and Daniel L. Pindyck's book is very simple and well explained. Its advantage over other books is that it is concerned with forecasting, something that other basic books do not do. It is a little bit more advanced than Gujarati's but lays between that one and Maddala's book.

Pros:
There is quite a bit of information in this text book. It covers a large range of topics and for that you can potentially learn a lot from it. There is no fluff and no verbose paragraphs to be found in explanation. The general flow of topics in the book is pretty good and makes sense as far as build up.

Cons:
The explanations tend to lack much and there are plenty of texts out there that do a much better job (see Verbeek or Woolridge or Baltagi for econometric books). The book seems to occasionally lack syntax consistency and introduce a variable in an equation without prior explanation. Its explanations, while brief which can be good, tend to leave much to be desired and lack clarity if you don't have prior knowledge or statistics/matrix algebra background. The book is also chocked full of remarks like "it can easily be shown that " and some evaluative equation is shown.. or "it is obvious that", "its not difficult to see" and so on. If you don't immediately or obviously see the proof or derivation then you're left questioning either your intelligence or the author's pretension. The version I have doesn't include a data disk or an online repository of data for your use in analysis and modeling. Many books do.. and so that's another knock on this one because I prefer to spend my time understanding concepts and analyzing data, not typing data from a book into an econometric program.

Overall, if you run into this book at a used bookstore then I say buy it at a discount. IF you're looking for a good book to teach you econometrics or statistical modeling without first having a foundation then "it should be immediately obvious that" you should skip this and move on to a book that does a better job of explaining things.

The subject of econometrics is difficult for the beginner. I have yet to encounter a text that does a great job at explaining both the concepts and the math required to be proficient in this field. I completed three courses, two undergraduate and one graduate level, for which this book was the required text. Like most of my classmates I was never able to fully comprehend the concepts behind the numbers using this text alone. Now that I have a better grasp of econometrics I will vehemently suggest that this text provides a poor verbal description of what a student is actually doing when analyzing data. I found myself reading the chapters 2 or 3 times and still felt unsure of what was going on. Where this book is strong is in its presentation of equations. I highly recommend supplementing this text with Peter Kennedy's, "A Guide to Econometrics," which gives excellent verbal explanations but de-emphasizes the math. These two texts together make a great study for a difficult subject.
This book is written very clearly and pretty easy to understand. The only issue I have with it, is the fact that most answers aren't in the back of the book and there is no solutions manual you can buy. The class I used this for was very difficult for me and it would have been really helpful to have been able to check all of my work.
