Format: Paperback
I am an IB Economics teacher and I have often struggled with finding the best material for this syllabus; it is way too advanced for any high school book and yet there is no quantitative emphasis like in most introductory college texts. The end result was that I had to pick and choose from all over because no one source covered everything satisfactorily. I had to supplement from college books, sites, my own notes, etc..After choosing to buy this book, my planning has become much smoother because we now rely primarily on this source. It covers the syllabus in its entirety and to the letter. It has many case studies (Real World Focus) that we can use to apply concepts and this of course is good preparation for the Internal Assessment. It covers everything in depth and leaves no questions unanswered. Tragakes even anticipates questions students might have and goes to great lengths to ensure that students have complete clarity, not just graphs and formulas to memorize. The CD includes practice questions, problem sets and a review on the quantitative skills needed for Paper 3. This will be a valuable resource to both teacher and student who can refresh and reinforce necessary skills that may have been forgotten. I reviewed several textbooks before choosing this one and the reason I did is because no other book is so in-depth, so comprehensive and so true to the spirit of the science of Economics; while not compromising relevance. There are also some supplementary sections which although not part of the syllabus, answer questions and enrich the content for the students that want to know a little more. I do agree with the comment on the somewhat boring layout. My students have commented on this as well. But Economics is the science of efficiency and at the end of the day it should not matter.Read more ›

Book is good to read, in great condition, and an awesome textbook for IB economics, and probably other courses in other schooling systems too. Well recommended, with great insight into IB Econ.

This is a very good textbook. It is clearly written, well organized, and offers good examples with graphs. I plan on using it this fall. I am interested in Tragakes's updated text which follows the newer syllabus.
