Two Papers By Kennedy on Doing Econometrics

Peter Kennedy's book, A Guide To Econometrics saved my hiney in graduate school (in fact, I noticed there's a fifth edition - time to buy another book). I still use it as a first stop whenever I need a simple, low-tech explanation of some econometric technique. If you're a graduate student who needs to use econometrics on a regular basis, it's a must-have.

The New Economist provides links to two of Kennedy's papers:

Sinning in the Basement: What are the Rules? Ten Commandments of Applied Econometrics

Oh no! I got the wrong sign! What should I do?.

Both are in PDF format, and are well worth the time spent reading them.

Note: New Economist provides a link to a post by Andrew Gelman at Statistical Modeling that's also worth reading.
