The (Ideal) Economics Student Toolkit
Each year I'm inevitably asked, "what do I have to have for this course?" While I know the students are really asking what's required, there is so much more to it. The required material for a course is the minimum needed to pass a course, but it doesn't mean that you'll get an A. While it could just be a selection issue, students who have more than what's required tend to be really prepared come exam time.

After talking with some other faculty, this list includes a lot of good tools for other classes as well, not just economics. If you have any more ideas, reach out to me.
