I'm going to be studying:
Biology, Chemistry (A) and Maths during 2012-2013
I am on OCR board
The problem is I used the standard textbooks the school gave me, and I didn't find it to be that detailed and didn't explain things very well. I think they were the Heinnemann ones
I want better textbooks for my A2 year.
Are there any good textbooks out there?
Note I don't need revision guides, I need proper textbooks.
What textbooks would you recommend for these subjects? Watch

The OCR Textbooks would be helpful. You can get them on Amazon, just search for the ISBN number.
OCR Chemistry A2 ISBN - 0435691988
OCR Biology A2 ISBN - 0435691902
They're quite well laid out and text is broken up in (what I think is) an easy to read & understand format. They're also useful for revision because of the style and as they're direct from the exam board, examiner's tips have also been included which can be quite handy.

I found CGP guides to be pretty helpful; they explain difficult topics in a way that is much easier to understand and take in. You can get them off Amazon for a decent price, even cheaper if you're a scav and get them second-hand like I did. Haa.
