What happens with back orders?

If you order an item that is temporarily out of stock, we will back order it for you. That means you will not need to re-order it. A note will appear on your invoice stating that the item is out of stock and will be supplied when new stocks are received. You will not be billed for it until it comes in. At that point we will send it out together with an invoice. No additional freight will be charged. This does not apply to any discontinued item. If you request new items to be added to a back order, replacement request or discrepancy claim, freight will be charged for that portion of the order that is new product (ie not part of the back order).

What Paces do I need to order for the full Economics course?

ECONOMICS COURSE STRUCTURE

When ACE came out with revised paces for units 133-144, they did the following:

1133-1138 US Civics
1139-1144 Economics (revised)

The first six paces were irrelevant to everybody except the USA. This meant that we could only use the last 6 units which resulted in a half-credit whereas before the completion of the 12 units earned a full credit.

Our Academic advisers therefore suggested that we use four of the old units (ie 133, 134, 140 and 143) in unison with the six new units (1133-1144) to enable students to claim a full credit at this level. This has worked fairly well because the content of the four old units was not covered in the new paces.

Hope this makes sense. The codes for the full course are 3133, 3134, 3140, 3143, then 8139 to 8144.

The keys are a bit more complicated. To get all the ones you need, you will need to purchase: 3333; 3339; 3342; 8339; 8342.

Economics is found on Page 27 of the SCEE Product Catalogue, a description of each unit is available on page 37 of the SCEE Scope & Sequence. Both of theses are available for download on the Catalogue and Order Forms page.
