    Apologies, but I didn't actually take AS Economics. I found CGP helpful for my AS Levels, though. Here's a link: https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/Student/b...cs.book_EKHR51.

    Hey there Nirm,

    I took A-level economics and at AS I got an A.

    This isn't a revision book, but try this website.

    I'm sure you will find it useful.

    Hey I need help to make a decision..
    So basically last year for AS in Econ1 I got 64/100 UMS and for Econ2 I got 77/100 UMS.
    I got a B with 141 UMS. I want to get an A this year in A2 but I don't know which unit I should retake? Econ1 or Econ2? The problem is that I am not good in Econ1 and I don't want to learn everything again.. I would rather retake Econ2 as it is similar to Econ4 but is it possible to get an A if I retake Econ2?

    Hey ridirahman,

    I was in a similar position to you last year and I ended up retaking ECON1 to get an A overall.

    I personally found that ECON1 and ECON3 supplement each other very nicely in terms of revision. Also you have a lot of scope to improve your mark on ECON1.

    All the revision notes I used to revise have been uploaded to this website:

    If you do choose to retake ECON2 my macro notes may help you:

    This is quite a good book. Nice structure and has some good evaluation points which are fundamental if you want to get an A/B grade.

    Tutor2u is good as well, and has a good explanation on how to evaluate E.G WEESTEPS

    Someone please hep me with this question?
    The answer is C.

    When a Maximum Price is implemented, it is always lower than the equilibrium price. Because of the lower price, producers are less likely to supply due to the signaling function and less profit being made, whereas consumers are rationed into the market by the lower prices.

    There is excess demand created from Q1 to Q2 which is what answer A shows but isn't the question asked.

    A maximum price will always reduce the amount supplied therefore, the new quantity will always be lower than the original equilibrium price. Quick summary, for a maximum price, when the maximum price hits the supply curve, that will be the new quantity, and to see how much the quantity has fell, you draw a line from the original equilibrium point and compare.
