About this Book
This wiki is in no way endorsed or a stem from the International Baccalaureate Organisation. It is, however, the result of particular lack of a solid textbook for the new 2014 course. These pages are, furthermore, derived from notes and knowledge of a student taking the course. This wiki will, hopefully, act as a course companion.
