Intermediate Microeconomics, 2021/22, Semester 2
Michael Reynolds
Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

These are many good intermediate microeconomics text books. The module is mainly based around:

HR Varian, Intermediate microeconomics : with calculus, Norton, 2014  

Additionally, there is a companion to this book which provides lots of example questions to practice:

HR Varian and TC Bergstrom, Intermediate Microeconomics: A modern approach, Norton, 2014. 

However, the majority of the following microeconomics text books will also cover the majority of our topics and I will try to ensure I provide relevant chapters recomendations to a few of the below. 

W Nicholson & C Snyder, Theory and Application of Intermediate Microeconomics. 11th edition, Thomson, 2009

D Besanko and R Braeutigam. Microeconomics. 5th edition. Wiley, 2015

A Goolsbee, S Levitt and C Syverson, Microeconomics, Macmillan, 2013

S Estrin, D Laidler and M Dietrich. Microeconomics. 5th ed. Prentice Hall, 2008.

JM Perloff. Microeconomics. 5th edition. Pearson Addison Wesley, 2009

The following books may be useful to help you with elements of mathematics:

Jacques, I. (1992), Mathematics for Economics and Business.  Addison Wesley, Chs 4-6. (there are newer editions : the 5th edition is available online as an electronic download)

Renshaw, G. (2005), Maths for Economics. Oxford University Press. Chs. 8 to 17.(this goes from GCSE level to beyond what we require – it’s an excellent book)
