Hi Jason, I wrote environmental eco's today so now i can concentrate on international trade...

Have a look at the diagrams which were punted by the course leader on myunisa, a total of 9... i recon KNOW THEM!

My thoughts on the prescribed reading is that i will concentrate on the previous exam questions regardless but i will keep in mind the prescribed reading...staying within those parameters...

Let me know how it goes and post any questions you are having trouble with so we can help each other

Check out the exam papers posted on myunisa, 2010, 2011 and 2012 are not included in my exam question summary....

I imagine that a couple of definitions will be included... the format is quite nice as the questions are broken up into slightly smaller ones, and not lumped into a handful of 25 mark questions... good luck

The paper was relatively easy. provided one did the work thoroughly. I was just bad at managing my time, but otherwise, the prescribed reading was of great great help
