3.0 out of 5 stars Good, basic text book for A level 15 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a basic, factual textbook, succinct and fairly engaging.

It lacks quite a lot of conceptual detail, so you risk developing a superficial understanding.

Economics by Lipsey and Chrystal is the best for A level, but is too advanced alone - it's worth having this book or something like it too.

Because it is more summary than Lipsey or Beardshaw, this book is good for revision.

Having taught both Cambridge IGCSE and GCE Economics, this book tops my list of texts available for A level Economics studies. Of key importance for non native English speakers, the writing is simple and very clear. Graphical explanations are sequential, this really helps in understanding basic theory and application. This is of particular importance for a student learning how to answer multiple choice questions. These are often especially bewildering for those with limited English language vocabularies. While the book's curriculum focus is towards the domestic UK examination boards, Stanlake offers better and more detailed coverage than CIE's recommended textbook for A levels. The bottom line is if I was recommending just one text to a student, preparing for either the CIE AS or A2 level examinations, I would choose Stanlake.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essences For A'Level Economics Candidates 22 Dec 2000
I really did not have a clue about Economics, especially with all of those lines & where the D (Demand) & S (Supply) labels goes!!
I was really struugling because I am from an BTEC GNVQ Business Advanced background - In comparison to A'Levels which is an academic or knoweledged -based background.
This textbook was one of the books from my reading lists (From the AQA Examining Board)& I am really starting to enjoy this very trick subject.
I can now draw & label my Demand & Supply lines in the appropriate graphs & know the difference between Macro & Micro Ecomonies!!
I would really recommend thi suberb textbook, as it really has helped me alot with my understanding of this topic - crucial for progress at A'Level!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for A-level or AICE Economics 4 May 2000
By Leandro E. Pirovano - Published on
I'm sitting for the AICE Economics exam this year and I found this book of great help. It covers most of the syllabus very easily explained with clear examples. It is very detailed in most of the topics and includes further explanations for every case presented. It is a very complete book, I quite recommend it for those who are doing this course. It might me useful as well the Study Guide for this book from the same author.
