Ok basically I do a really ****** a level. My teacher sucked, and seemed to be clinically depressed all the time or was from the loony bin. As she was always annoyed and never taught my class.

Anyway I am retaking this subject in Jan, I practically have to self teach myself I looked at the exam bored for any books they suggest there was only one and the book is full of ****. I do not know what else to do I downloaded the specification but I do not know how or where I am going to learn it if there is no textbooks.

I asked on TSR a number of times no one seems to do this subject.

What should I do? I only need to get a B on this module to get a decent grade.

She is the only textiles teacher at my college
I don't want to screw it up because I got an A on my coursework and to get at least a C overall I need to get a B for the theory paper.

Ask your teacher for help/email her first.

If its the old specification there will be a lot of past papers and things online. There should be other books and resources. Try typing your exams unit code into Amazon to find a book or the topic and exam board. If that fails try typing it into google. If that fails then you need to get a general book, not made by the exam board and use that to study your topics. Make use of the past papers and literally read everything there is on the AQA website about your paper.

As I said my teacher is crazy so emailing her is waste of time, I also think she severly dislikes me.
Most of the content on the website is gone all that is left is the past papers and the specification. They did mention one textbook that I already have, but it does not cover the entire syllabus. So i need to find other resources.
how do I find the exam unit code?

exam unit code is the code next to your results on your result sheet.
e.g 6RS01 is my unit one religious studies exam edexcel.

your code will obv be different.
