    You should find the jump to AS not that difficult to be honest. I would say the C3 extension unit will help you most with the calculations that crop up during AS especially moles/concentration questions. Triple science is designed to bridge the gap to AS IMO. Do not underestimate chemistry though but as long as you remain focused it isn't particularly difficult, you have the joys of Bon haber cycles and 30 equations and colours to learn at A2.

    If you do want a head start this website is AQA A level chemistry specific and helps ALOT!!!!

    And these revision books are excellent

    ye its harder than the other sciences imo. Too many rules that contradict each other.
    Would you like to give an example of contradicting rules?

    What's the difference between these books and the Collin's student support books? Is one better than the other?

    lol can't remember now it's been ages. But theres loads of rules and then exceptions to the rule.

    Whereas in physics there's nothing like that. Less to remember.

    At A level, perhaps. At university there will bound to be some exceptions...A level barely just about covers the surface!

    The books in the links are a lot more detailed, the support books are basically short summary books. I had both and there both equally good. The support books are good during exam period when your doing past papers and you need a quick recap of a topic instead of reading a whole chapter in the more detailed book.

    Ahhh okay thank you . So, do you think the Nelson Thorne's textbook ( supplied by the school) and the student support book would be sufficient?

    Yes most definitely Also past papers are the key, the old spec papers are extremely useful aswell!
