Review quote

I am currently using the History of the 20th Century and the History of the Middle East and Europe in IB. I find them useful', particularly in reference to papers 2 and 3 in the IB. The references to other material serves a very good end and helps the students develop their ideas. * Phillip Briggs, Head of History, The British School of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil * Thanks so much for making IB so enjoyable for our students through your books. I just got their IB History grades and they are higher than ever before. Students used the Oxford Course Book and Skills and Practice. I could clearly see the difference! * Maggie Prieto, Head of Languages, Bachillerato Alexander Bain, Mexico * 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. * Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore *
