Review quote

This book is a great companion for the History of Americas class. It covers all the key points that my teachers discuss and has prepared me for all my exams. The book follows the course curriculum to the letter and it offers insights that may not be shared in class. I think all IB students should order books from this series if they are interested in getting the best grades possible and increasing their knowledge of the topics. I plan to ask my parents order the other course books for my other IB classes. Amazon Student Review, USA The Oxford IB course books are the best ever resource for both teachers and students. They are practical, insightful and fully in line with the IB Course outcomes. Pat Hanson, IB Coordinator, Academy of the Holy Cross, USA All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA We have adopted most of the Oxford course books for our school. We find them well written, well linked to TOK issues and age appropriate.
