Recommends it for: student in economics and econometrics
As I said before, you cannot rate textbooks in the same manner as other books - however, this is a great, great introductory textbook on Econometrics and a good companion to Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data. If you lack proof in this one you'll be sure to find a rigorous discussion in that one, and this one provides enough text to really get a grasp of how to perform the analysis hands on.

This book gives a nice introduction to Econometrics. It goes well when explains difficult concepts with lots of details and examples in a clear straight forward approach.

It lacks a little of rigorous proofs. It's more for you to understand what is econometrics, how to apply it and basic problems associated to it.

For more advances and rigorous texts, check the also excellent Gujarati's book, Fumio Hayashi's Econometrics and Greene's Econometrics Analysis.

I use this book instead of the required text my lecturer suggested, but it gives me more than I hope. Difficult definitions, formula, models are explained in detailed and clearly although Woolridge cancelled mostly rigorious proofs. However, my course focuses on practicing (applied econ) so it's still ok. :-)
The appendix is pretty helpful to review statistical problems in comparison with its length.

Simply the best undergraduate econometrics textbook available. Formal treatment, complete coverage of most important topics, and some extra math for those inclined (in the appendices).

Absolute best place to start with metrics. GET THE DATASETS AND WORK THROUGH EVERY. EXAMPLE. IN. THE. BOOK.

I think after all the 'metrics classes I did actually read 99% of it.
