(Long List please help) I have no special mathematics courses in my BSc and none in MSc as a lot of forum user now UK degrees in economics have no mathematics (Can’t afford LSE MSc Econometrics and Mathematics £16700 P/A). Hopefully in sep-2007 I will start my MSc Econometrics and Finance at QMUL they recommended me following books. Will these books help me to show adcom I can handle Mathematics needed for PhD?
