Victory is mine.

Leading Edge's "The Global Economy" is a perfectly good book. As with any textbook, it skirts around some things, which I augment with the Excel economics textbook. Together they're pretty solid. Don't make the mistake of using Excel economics only though. I've seen a lot of people base their notes entirely from it, and it ends up hurting them. Excel doesn't cover enough. It is brief, it is a summary, and it won't suffice for 4-5 mark short answer responses and it certainly doesn't impart enough information for essays. Some Economics note sets here on BOS are taken right from the Excel book, and you can spot the holes easily enough. Excel used with The Global Economy however is excellent for augmentation and clarification, and the worked-solution HSC paper at the back is nifty too.
