A much needed break…

Published by at 10:42 pm under AP Economics,IB Economics

March, April, May: this is crunch time for students of IB and AP Economics. Exams are just around the corner, we’re wrapping up a long year (or two) of studies, and all the excitement of the end of the year is upon us. Just when we need it most, spring break is here!

I’ll be in Malaysia for the week diving, visiting old high school friends, and enjoying the country I lived in as a kid. Some of you may be here in Shanghai wishing you were someplace cool, looking for something useful to do. If this is you, then you should check out the “AP/IB Exam Prep” page on this blog, where you can find downloadable study guides for every unit in the AP courseup to this point and links to the wiki pages you’ve created throughout the year. Between these two resources, you probably don’t even need to open your textbook when reviewing for the AP and IB exams in May.

Have a great spring break. If you’re feeling like me right now, then this break has arrived at just the right time! Don’t expect much from me for the next 9 days, I’m not even bringing my computer to Malaysia with me, so this should be the last post until March 31!
