    Hello guys,

    I started revising for Economics and I am usually a level 7 student.
    Though, I do not feel like reading through teh whole Pearson Economics 550 pages book again and again. So, does someone have recommendations for a IB HL economics revision guide which perfectly covers all aspects of the syllabus and includes examples and evaluation?

    For now I found
    -IB Economics 2nd Edition: Study Guide for the IB diploma by Constantine Ziogas
    This one seems quite nice but not sure if it contains everything tbh.
    -IB Economics: Skills and Practice: For the IB diploma by Constantine Ziogas
    This one looks better but from the title im not sure whether it actually contains everyhting of the syllabus or whether it just gives some examples of IB questions.
    - The OSC IB revision guides. These are simply not good enough (do not contain necessary information to get a 7 with imo)


    Any advice?

    Honestly if you want a 7 you gotta put the hours in.
    You could look at Welker videos on youtube and revise with those (take so long believe me)
    You can get the blue study guide by Blink. It is very comprehensive and honestly all I really am doing ( need to get a 7 as well )

    DO you take history by any chance?

    Yeah I noticed which is why I have already read my way through half of the 600 pages. Though, since I won't be remembering absolutely everything for it, I would like to know a good study guide which shows everything we need to know according to the syllabus in a more compact form.
    Do you have the full name of that study guide?


    No i dont take history

    Hi, sorry to butt in but I do higher history and was just wondering how you're revising for it? I'm finding it so hard right now and just can't bring myself to revise it for more than half an hour

    Yeah I've finished document paper revision because that was pretty simple but everything else is just stress which one is route two? I'm doing world wars and single party states for standard then unification of Germany and Italy and Russia and the fall of tsardom for higher?
    I also don't have a revision guide, stress!!
