This is one of the few A Levels Economics Textbooks that actually has the correct diagram for oligopoly! (Clue: negative MR equals inelastic demand) The book is written by the chief examiner so you would expect it to directly relate to the syllabus. There are two big problems though.
The first problem is that the book is 6 years out of date and, therefore, does not include coalition government policy, Greece and the EU, financial crisis, etc. Therefore, the questions in the book (there are no answers given) are out of date.
Second problem. This is not the fault of the writer, but the fault of the syllabus. Paper 4 is a pre-released case study. Students are to work through case study applying their economics knowledge. Of course, a book is written in 2008, will not include the 2014 case study, obviously. And neither it will include any of the papers for the last five years. Much better to buy one of the commercially available analysis for the case study and then work through it. This means that the book is really only useful for paper three. For the OCR there is a choice, i.e. transport or labour. You cannot choose both. Therefore, two thirds of the book are not needed. If you have chosen labour, then this book omits trade union activity for the past five years. If you choose transport, there is nothing about HS2. Therefore, i cannot see a compelling reason to ever buy this book

The same as the AS book in style, although I've found the A2 version useful for providing a good structure of the course, but has little in depth in some areas. This book is definitely a must, but use it as a basis for your class notes.

Good, I would recommend it for A-level students out there studying OCR economics, great in compliment with other OCR books. However, can be dense if making notes.

This is without doubt the best OCR Economics book, which explains everything in perfect detail. Both the AS and A2 have helped me pass the corse.
