The purpose is to teach/train you to use the techniques of econometrics. This requires some statistical theory, but the main focus will be on applying econometric technique.

On-line Aids : There is also a website to accompany the textbook where you will find extra material, practice quizzes, etc. The password for the site comes with a purchase of a new book. You should have access to a computer that has STATA on it. Having access to a computer in the Division of Social Sciences Computer Lab at 233 Social Science & Humanities building (url: http://dsslab.ucdavis.edu/) would help, as it is easier to use STATA on many of the exercises. The data sets on which the problem sets are based can be downloaded from the class website.
