I was wondering what people would recommend as the best revision guides for the following subjects:
English Lit (I don't think revision guides will be especially useful for this, but let me know)
I know it will depend on what exam board and syllabus I'm on, but I'm not 100% sure of that, so any general recommendations would be muchly appreciated.
Also, can anyone tell me whether its worth getting the "Head start to AS" CGP books, or are they just useless?
Oh, and should I get AS revision guides, or ones that cover AS&A2?

In my opinion, CGP revision guides are good. Phillip Allan and Letts revision guides are good too. I would get revision guides that will cover AS and A2 content.
Here are some revision guide links:
If you want to know what is covered in your subjects, go to the following exam board websites (the subject content should be similar):

If you end up doing Edexcel once, you can get some decent revision guides endorsed by Edexcel themselves - they come with Cds too! There's one for each module, and I assume that's the same for most exam boards with the nature of the maths A-level.

The subject teachers might recommend some revision guides specifically for the exam board.
The revision giuides and websites mentioned above might/will cover all exam boards. Inside the revision guide (depending which one - phillip allan has one), there will be a table of topics and exam boards. If you see across the table and there is a check mark in one of the exam board column, that topic will be taught in that exam board. In addition, in some revision guides, there will be a topic title, and next to it, there will be an initial of an exam board or a logo next to the title, which indicate that this topic will be in the specification of that particualr exam board.

I quite liked the collins books for the sciences and the heinemann textbooks / revise for you books with extra questions. The CGP books are really quite patronising.

Agree, Collins books are very good. They dont publish Edexcel A2 contect though
