My school made us buy the Heinemann Textbook. It is terrible it was made 10 years ago and hardly goes by the new syllabus.

Is there another recomended textbook out there?

You just wasted your money.

The best one out there is the Sam Davis textbook.
There's also the Excel one but there isn't enough detail in that one.

Sam Davis' textbook is the most recent, and it does go into detail on all things, perhaps a little too much detail in some areas. He still has some things not 100% correct, but he is on the right tack.

The Jacaranda text is also very good, some very good case studies and scenarios in there for you to use and practice on. Remember that in the HSC Q21-Q24, and both of the two options you do will have a scenario that will require you to demonstrate your understanding of IPT concepts. If you find yourself being weighed down by the Davis text, consider the Jacaranda.

Another one is the Cambridge textbook. You can only find these in libraries and possibly some schools.

It's good to use the the Sam Davis text as it goes into more depth so you have a greater understanding of the topic which can make it easier to answer questions.

I found the Jacaranda text alright.

Make sure you know which parts of the Cambridge or Jacaranda textbooks you don't need to study because the syllabus changed in 2008 and some dot points have been removed.
