The text is divided into six topics, following the structure of the Year 11 Economics syllabus. Each topic is introduced by a page which includes the relevant focus, issues and skills for that topic, reflecting the syllabus objectives. This is followed by a clear introduction to each chapter within the topic as well as case studies, quotations and summaries of key information, the 2020 edition includes regular review questions and margin definitions throughout the text. There are also references to useful websites relevant to that area of study.

Each chapter concludes with a ten-point chapter summary and chapter review questions. The chapter summary is a good starting point for students’ notes on each chapter, and the review questions are a great way to test their understanding of the chapter.

The comprehensive glossary at the back of the text provides a ready reference for over 350 key economic terms and concepts.

A unique feature of the text is its appendix, located at the back of the book. Appendix A: Key Economic Skills, gives students the opportunity to master the 26 skills of the Year 11 Economics syllabus.
