    Can you not get your hands on a George Facer book? If not go for option 2 (I used it last year) but the George Facer book is the best one in terms of clarity and detail.

    Dear David Tennant

    Thank you very much for replying.

    Actually, I forgot to write the name of George Facer's Book. Now as you have recommended it, I'll use that book. BTW, what grade did u get in chem last year? And did you appear for the alternative to practical paper ?

    It is ok. As I'm not studying edexcel subjects, I can recommend the CGP Edexcel Chemistry Reivion Book. Its the best, at least for me!!!..

    However, I do not have any idea of AQA's revision books.

    You should try to post a thread about in the specific sub-forums. Good-luck.
