    I'm going to be studying:

    Biology, Chemistry (A) and Maths during 2012-2013

    I am on OCR board

    The problem is I used the standard textbooks the school gave me, and I didn't find it to be that detailed and didn't explain things very well. I think they were the Heinnemann ones

    I want better textbooks for my A2 year.

    Are there any good textbooks out there?

    Note I don't need revision guides, I need proper textbooks.

    The OCR Textbooks would be helpful. You can get them on Amazon, just search for the ISBN number.

    OCR Chemistry A2 ISBN - 0435691988

    OCR Biology A2 ISBN - 0435691902

    They're quite well laid out and text is broken up in (what I think is) an easy to read & understand format. They're also useful for revision because of the style and as they're direct from the exam board, examiner's tips have also been included which can be quite handy.

    I found CGP guides to be pretty helpful; they explain difficult topics in a way that is much easier to understand and take in. You can get them off Amazon for a decent price, even cheaper if you're a scav and get them second-hand like I did. Haa.
