Review quote

We have adopted most of the Oxford IB 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 * All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. * Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA * The Oxford 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 * The Economics Course Book is, to me, is a good book - full of knowledge and illustrations so it will not be boring for the students to read. I recommend purchasing this one. * Dr Teddy Gomes, Deputy Head Teacher, Singapore School Kelapa Gading, Indonesia * The Economics course book is thorough and accurately covers the course syllabus. The connection with Theory of Knowledge is outstanding. * Economics Workshop Leader, Australia * Excellent textbook in every aspect. Topics are well and logically organized. High Level topic coverage, in particular, is very comprehensive. Graphs, diagrams, examples, practice problems and graphs are all very clear and instructive. * Cindy Mueller, IB Economics Teacher, Frankfurt International School * The more difficult conceptual material is explained in a way that is easy for students to understand. Jocelyn Blink and Ian Dorton, both Senior IB examiners for Economics, have produced, in our opinion, the best foundation text for IB Economics currently on the market. * Dan Glover, Head of Business and Economics, Munich International School *
