    Would it be any use in terms of helping me learn biology from scratch?

    In terms of learning Biology from scratch, these books are better for revisiting what you have done already in class. It would prepare you and give you a feel for the syllabus, but I would just say to wait until your actually being taught.

    The reason I need something which will teach me it from scratch is because I was home schooled for the gcse years and only completed some in college this past year, but non of those were science related and I would like to do biology but as I know absolutely nothing I would prefer to know some basics first

    it's good for biology however if you don't do triple science and you only do core or additional then i suggest you get a different book as the separate books include unit 7 which triple science students only do

    trust me, i do/did triple science :sigh:

    I've used those books and they are brilliant! However, when revising from those books, learn every detail (even those which you think are not important or briefly look over) since when I was revising for my exams, everything I needed to know from the specification was written in those books.

    I always recommend CGP for GCSE level revision. They seem to get just the right tone and explain things really well. A shame this doesn't hold above GCSE level though.

    For maths and further maths, I recommend this series of books: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-AS-L...ref=pd_sim_b_1. For science, I got by well on my standard school textbook, but to be honest for A-Level science the best method is probably to get the specification and use a combination of the textbook and the internet.
