hi,

first of all yu have two papers of economics...........paper 1 is related to economic theory n practices n for that K.K Dewett(Modern Economic Theory)and Paul A. Samuelson(Economics international edition) are the best books
as far as paper 2 is concerned tht includes economics of Pakistan n for tht yu may get
Economics of Pakistan by Saeed Nasir and Kamal Haider


hi marium,

to prepare well 1st of all make a list of topics included in the syllabus thn,study them carefully.....after tht do read the summary of the topics so tht yu'll have a brief overview. whenever yu finish a topic just mark it crossd ..n after finishing the whole syllabus just go through a self assessment by having self examination from past papers.


regards
Qurat

AOA,
I have also opted Economics as optional I'm reading 'Modern Economic Theory' by K.K. Dewitte and Principles of Economics by A. Hamid Shahid. I wanted to ask that are these books enough. I also study O Levels and A levels books of Economics.

Regards.
