About the Series:
Oxford's IB Diploma Course Books are essential resource materials designed in cooperation with the IB to provide students with extra support through their IB studies. Course Books provide advice and guidance on specific course assessment requirements, mirroring the IB philosophy and providing opportunities for critical thinking.
I have reviewed the textbook and have found many elements helpful: alignment with the new TOK curriculum, variety of global perspectives and individual voices, wealth of discussion questions or questions for individual thought, and guidance on the assessments.
Your IB books are totally addictive. TOK is our next buy. Thank you for developing such fantastic material.
