    Yes it is i believe from tutor2u however im not entirely sure but it is called 'the APT', the APT was correct last year and had the majority of the questions on there its quite essential.

    WHen do you reckon you will have it by? and if you do get it would you be able to shre it online or via a private message to me?
    The APT resources are not from tutor2u they can be found on the website apt-initiatives.com and cost £28 + vat

    how is revision going? I've been revising straight from the textbook, its pretty helpful and highlights the implications of a defaults and at analyzing the graphs in extract 1 and 2. I feel like the essay question will be on FDI's and their impact, it could possibly be in relation to China and Africa..Or maybe even on Aid (Aid vs Foreign Direct Investment?).. Has anyone done an F585 paper before?

    I've got the pdf version of the F585 toolkit if anyone still needs it. Also, how is revision going?

    I made annotations from the toolkit on a printed out copy of the stimulus material, and now just use that as revision along with and primarily the textbook. I've tried to learn all the definitions off by heart because that's alway a good starting point, and I have placed a large emphasis on the debates relevant (fixed v freely floating ER's, monetary union v no monetary union, FDI v Aid + FDI pros and cons for develolment etc

    Anyone can explain why the figure 1.1 and figure 1.2 have falling inflation? Is this the result of the fixed exchange rate and if so why do it lead to that? Is it since the e.r. makes exports more expensive? And how about for fig 1.2 how does that decrease they havrnt evrn joined the eu thing at that time..
