Ha thanks.

The only textbook I used was the OCR A2 Economics Textbook (http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-A2-Econo...evel+economics).

But being honest the mark schemes and examiners reports are the best resources - particularly helpful for evaluative points in 'discuss' questions and conclusions to the questions in Section B.

Make good notes from the textbook, know what the Examiners are looking for and getting 90+ is very achieveable.

I would say it's easier to get the marks in this paper than Global as if you put in the time to know the material in Transport you are much more likely do well as opposed to the more unpredictable Global paper. Bear in mind this is only what I think though.

Hope that helps and good luck.

In your opinion, how hard is global compared to Transport?

Personally I think it's quite a bit harder. With Transport you can learn the concepts and just repeat them in the exam where the case study is quite irrelevant. Global has harder concepts (in my opinion) and a harder structure to the exam - I found the 10 mark questions the hardest type of question across both exams. Also, as the exam is purely case study based it is naturally harder to prepare for Global than it is for Transport.

Again this is only my view - I'm sure other people would think differently.

Hey everyone,

The specification tells us we need to know the influences on firms revenues within the transport industries.- is this basically asking us for the determinants of demand but applied to transport?

Also has anyone got any tips on how to revise for this exam because theres quite alot of content and i'm having hard time organising what to revise first
thanks
