The lecture notes will be sufficient to complete the homework and to revise for the exams. However, you may find it helpful to use books for alternative explanations of difficult concepts, worked examples, practice questions, or other additional material. Some useful books for this course are:

- Mathematics for Economics and Business, by Ian Jacques (Prentice Hall, 2006).

- Essential mathematics for economic analysis, by Knut Sydsaeter and Peter Hammond (Prentice Hall, 2008).
(Earlier editions of this book have a slightly different title: Mathematics for Economic Analysis.)

Essential mathematics for economics and business ISBN: 0471975117 (pbk), by Teresa Brandley (Wiley, 2013).

Note that you can of course also use other/later editions of the above books.

Many useful resources can also be found on-line: see, e.g.,
