Is Christopher Baum's book appropriate for that class? What is the ideal course for Baum's book, anyway? I'm teaching masters level econometrics in the spring 2008 for the first time and have yet to pick a text, and was wondering whether that one might suit.

I'm proposing to teach elementary to intermediate quantitative

This involves a radical departure from "that other package" and I
really need a suitable text to go with it. Kohler & Kreuter's "Data
Analysis using Stata" and Acock's "Gentle Introduction" both seem
attractive.

Could I please solicit experiences and attitudes, other
suggestions?
