    I am looking for a revision guide to help with economics. Our lessons involve mainly making notes from the teacher talking so we get very little practise a questions and activities. I would like some suggestions of some good revision guides for AS this year and hopefully A2 next year if I continue the subject. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Summarise your notes already and explain them to someone else
    AQA have all their past papers on their site

    that should easily be enough.

    Try Jenny Scott's Living Economy. It isn't by any means a revision guide but it has been superb for us in understanding the macroeconomy. It basically makes economics accessible to the layman. So it's best used alongside the textbooks as one huge "real life" example of all the macroeconomic theories we study.

    True, but I often use Letts Revision Guides - I like the ones that explain things logically and have lots of questions after each section.

    Its an effective combination.

    Also, past exam papers are always useful - you should always do at least 2/3 before exams, as preparation for what you will face in the real thing.

    thanks for the recommendations, although i have a problem. I have found the oxford revion guide on amazon:
    Advanced Economics Through Diagrams (Oxford Revision Guides)

    but i dont think i have found the letts one. I have looked on their site and there arent any listed. the only one that i have found is:
    A Level Study Guide: Economics (a blue and orange cover with a big A)

    is this the right one? becuase it doesnt seem to be in print???

    Seriously, you will be inunadeted with the information, just stick with the Oxford ones. They are seriously good. Full of info, but summarised so wonderfully.

    I agree.

    But I am talking about basic revision, not actual proper reading and learning etc.

    True, the Oxfird revfision guides are one step down from a textbook, but one step up from a revision guide.

    Yep, tutor2u seems to be the most useful site. Can't find any other sites which are better.
