Does anyone have experience using these American textbooks for the course? If so, were they the same/fine for the courses?
Mankiw's books are legendary. Canadian & American, doesn't really matter.
Just begin reading one and you will understand why.
I really recommend Macroecnomics 8e.
Holmes' slides are not useful without her teaching, words, and overall knitting
of slide concepts and applications.
