New exam review resources for the AP and IB Economics student!

Published by at 1:25 pm under AP Economics,IB Economics

With just a few weeks remaining before the AP and IB Economics exams take place, you may be looking for some good resources for exam review. In the last months,  I have released two newly updated revision guides for students studying in these courses.

The Microeconomics Revision Guide for the Introductory Economics Student:

  • This resources includes chapters on all the topics from both Advanced Placement and IB Economics, including the new quantitative components of the IB Higher Level syllabus. Also included are the two AP-only topics, Resource Markets and Theory of Consumer Behavior
  • Every chapter includes a link to the corresponding section from my economic video lectures site, The Economics Classroom.
  • At the end of a book is a glossary including definitions to over 150 Microeconomics terms
  • The book is also available in the European and British Amazon stores: Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk

The Macroeconomics and International Economics Revision Guide for the Introductory Economics Student: 

  • Includes chapters covering every topic from the AP Macroeconomics course, as well as sections 2 and 3 from the IB Economics syllabus. 
  • Like the Micro Revision Guide, the Macro guide includes links at the top of every page to the corresponding section of The Economics Classroom, so the student can easily find video lessons to accompany their review process.
  • The Macro and International Glossary at the end of this book includes over 200 key terms.
  • The book is also available in the European and British Amazon stores: Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk

The books are a great resources for students in classes in which the teacher already uses the Welker’s Wikinomics PowerPoint lecture notes, as the revision guides follow the PowerPoints very closely.

Enjoy! And good luck on your exams next month!
