    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions for which revision guides I should buy for economics. I finished year 12 today and I have a mock when I return to school in September, so I really need help studying. I currently use this textbook: https://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/Pr...=9781471830006 which was given to be by my teacher.
    I don't find it very helpful, I think it just waffles too much and doesn't really explain this well.
    I was thinking about buying this revision guide to help me: https://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/Pr...=9781471842139
    I was wondering if any of you use it and would recommend it?
    I've also been told that these could be better: https://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/Ec...it=true&type=3

    My teacher doesn't really give us notes or anything, our lessons are much more practical, so I really need something with good amounts of information. I am studying the Edexcel 2015 spec.

    All help would be appricated, thanks.

    I'm on OCR, whilst i did buy the economics textbooks, never once did i use them throughout the year, i much preferred websites such as tutor2u and especially economicsonline for notes, with the youtuber econdalplus for revision at the end of the year. I find most economics textbooks waffle too much and aren't very good as a revision tool/for making notes.
