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 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 Economics course book is thorough and accurately covers the course syllabus. The connection with Theory of Knowledge is outstanding. Economics Workshop Leader, Australia 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 All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA 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 appropiate. Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore
