    OCR have endorsed this textbook, which means they can only ask you things that are covered in there. Just make sure you know everything in there that's in the January exam, and you should be good to go.
    I also like this one, because it seems to go into more detail, and I can seem to understand the concepts more easily from it.

    Good luck!


    EDIT: I've just noticed you wanted websites. A fail on my part. :facepalm:

    I find s-cool amazingly helpful and also wisegeek.com, if you don't know what a phrase is/mean just type it in (e.g sino atrial node) and it normally explains it better than a textbook would and in more detail
