Review quote

This is an invaluable tool for both myself and my students - incredibly comprehensive, coherent and manages to link together aspects of the IB Learner Profile. I don't know what I would do without my copy. Neil, Science Teacher, Dallam School, UK 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. Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore
