  • "Description: Developed in collaboration with the International Baccalaureate Organization, Oxford's Course Companions provide extra support for students taking IB Diploma Programme courses. They present a whole-course approach with a wide range of resources, and encourage a deep understanding of each subject by making connections to wider issues and providing opportunities for critical thinking. Providing clear and inviting instruction and guidance, this Companion supports students through their Economics course. It includes cross-curricular materials and activities as well as advice and guidance for the portfolio of four commentaries. Examples, features, and case studies drawn from around the world encourage students to develop an international perspective. · Includes a section of Development and International Economics · Written by experienced authors and teachers, who are both deputy chief examiners · Activities and features provide opportunities for learning and discussion around core and wider issues · Exam, portfolio, and Extended Essay advice is provided"
2. Principles of Economics by O'Sullivan, 1st Edition (an adaptation of O’Sullivan, Economics, 4th Edition) - S$39
Click for more info on O'Sullivan's book
  • From the web: "For Introductory courses in economics principles, offered in Economics departments. It is the only economics principles textbook written with the local Singaporean economics student in mind. It is the only economics principles textbook that helps students understand concepts within the context of familiar Singaporean and Asian examples and vignettes. In addition, the textbook matches the topics covered in the current Cambridge-Singapore GCE A-Level Economics H1 and H2 Syllabi."

Why buy a textbook when you already have your lecture notes?
  • Extra examples help you to clarify on your understanding of concepts. Examples are also useful to help in your explanation when you write essays
  • Extra exercises (short questions, data response and essay questions) allow more practice
  • (Possibly) a slightly different way of explaining a concept or idea, which may help in your understanding
You can try to share a book (2 to a book) if you find it a financial burden; or use the copies in the library.

Note: $20 deposit is required for each book ordered and this is non-refundable as the supplier needs to place an order for the shipment of books from abroad. The books will arrive in about 1 month's time.

Orders must be given by end of this week to your tutors.
