Economics textbook

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out which economics textbook I should get. At my school we use one that doesn't have all the contents of the IB syllabus, so I'm trying to get one that is as complete as possible. 

Anyways, I need your recommendations/ reviews about the economics books and I would really appreciate it !!:D

Also, is there any revision guide that you may recommend ?

My textbook from school is by Ellie Tragakes but it's really long and quiet wordy ( tiny text, little to no diagrams, i think like 3 columns per page) 

My econ teacher, who is an ib examiner, recommended that I get the Economics revision guide by Paul Hoang, it's really good and has a paper 3 work book you can also get which is super helpful. She also says to stay away from the OSC books because they don't give enough detail. Another bonus is that im pretty sure the Revision guide and paper 3 workbook together are still cheaper than the first textbook ( I got both of mine on amazon for like £20ish in total) 

In conclusion, I'd recommend the Paul Hoang one, it's really clear and easy to understand and it gives you advice about exams and practise questions. 

I hope this helped :)
