Introducing a new revision guide for the AP, IB and A level Economics exams! Now on Amazon

Over the last year, I have been working on two new resources for IB, AP, A level and Econ 101 students. The Microeconomics and Macroeconomics Revision Guides for the Introductory Economics student represent the ultimate resource for exam preparation and subject mastery.

The Macro Revision Guide is in its final stage of development and should be for sale by the middle of March. The Micro Revision Guide is now available now on Amazon in the US, the UK and the EU:

Description: The Microeconomics Revision Guide for Introductory Economics students provides a comprehensive overview of the major units covered in an introductory Micro course. The book follows the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate syllabuses, and includes over 200 detailed diagrams, clear explanations of concepts, definitions, examples, and a glossary with over 150 key Microeconomic terms.

The revision guide is linked to several online resources which can be accessed for free by students reviewing for exams. Each chapter of the book is accompanied by a section on the website, www.EconClassroom.com, at which students can view video lectures published by the author covering nearly every topic from the course. The website also provides interactive flashcards for reviewing key terms and downloadable practice activities on most units.

For more information on the Microeconomics Revision Guide for the Introductory Economics Student, have a look at the author’s website, www.welkerswikinomics.com. There you can also find links to other resources, including teacher lecture notes, a blog, and an Economics news page.
