"Very good. Comprehensive guide to the new specification. Logical progression through explanation and questioning... Regular testing at the end of a topic. Clear explanations, building on knowledge."<BR>&ndash; G&nbsp;Wainwright, Economics Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"I particularly liked the extras like the ‘quantitative skills’ boxes and ‘further your economic knowledge”. I liked the questions and the glossary too... it is a comprehensive coverage of the specification... and shows links to other areas of the specifications that will follow in later units." &ndash; C&nbsp;Richards, Economics Teacher & Independent Reviewer
This resource helps students have clear structured notes and is an excellent reference tool for them. It has educational value in that it has review questions and a separate answers section. This allows students to apply their notes to key questions on the topic... Particularly useful for weaker students so that they have clear structured notes. It also has parts teachers can use for class resources e.g. exam style questions... I liked the fact that key terms are highlighted clearly in a box and that "common mistakes" are also highlighted. Another good aspect is the "exam style" questions section which can be very useful because there are separate questions and answers. This can be used for setting as homework or plenary class tasks... The resource matches the AQA specification perfectly, using the correct learning objectives at the start of each section."<BR>&ndash; B&nbsp;Bohane, Head of Business & Economics, Independent Reviewer
