I'm doing english lit in a year AS and A2
And wanted to buy revision guides to help me
I had a look on amazon...and came across 'york notes advanced' guides
has anyone ever used these and are they good enough?
A few books I will be doing are Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Frankenstein, A street car named desire, A dolls house.
Thanks

My teacher raved about 'York Notes' and told us to get them - but she ended up just photocopying the key points.
Your own notes are invaluable, keep a good bank of notes.
A little extra reading around helps - but don't go too mad

You can't really use a revision guide for English literature. You just have to know your texts extremely well. York Notes Advanced are usually pretty good but it really does depend on which text you get them for, some are brilliant and some are not particularly helpful. I have the Pride and Prejudice one and I remember it being quite helpful. I haven't used the others on your list.
