There is no required textbook and I don't recommend purchasing a book.
Recommended reading would include:
Appleyard, Dennis and Field, Alfred International Economics
Mankiw N. Gregory Macroeconomics.
Any recent edition of the above books would do as they don't change in any substantial way between editions. They are available from the library.
There are no participation marks for the course. But generally students who attend tutorials, either virtually or online, do better than those who do not.
Required IT skills
Familiarity with the basics of MS Word.
Work placement, internships or practicums
