The IB Guide

For parents: a lot has been said about whether the IB is a good thing, and whether it is right for your child. This book does not claim to have all of the answers to this. Instead, I give you some ideas about what to consider when discussing the IB. I also aim to debunk some of the myths that surround the IB, and give the inside information about some of the rumours around the IB.

For students: Do you know how to get the best marks on a ToK essay? Do you know how to footnote and reference properly? Does the prospect of delivering an IOC scare you? Fear not! This guide can help you to overcome these hurdles and do the best you can. It includes loads of model assignments and essays with clear, detailed explanations as to what you need to do to get the best marks. Don’t make the same mistakes!

For two sample sections, click here and here. A book costs $30 and there are discounts available for bulk purchases.

In the future, you will be able to order online. Until I manage to work out the technicalities of that, if you want to order, please send an email to and Simon will be in touch very shortly.
