    According to Amazon : Facer got 4 stars average out of 5 across 10 reviews and hill got 3.5 stars out of 5 average out of 3 reviews.

    Secondly according to another thread somewhere else on the TSR forum the Facer book is best in terms of clarity and detail , so I think that is BETTER

    Good luck ( hope I helped lol

    PS ... I also read somewhere Facer better at AS, but at A2 the Hill book is better so take from that what you will . :cool:

    Facer. IT contains the least mistakes out of the other edexcel chem books on the market.

    I strongly advise you buy the Edexcel CGP AS revision guide. It's effective if you have two sources of books, as opposed to just the one, incase one book explains a topic more awkwardly than the other book!

    James thanks for replying. I was also thinking about buying CGP guides along with a textbook. I have heard a lot good about these guides.

    Facer, he goes off on a bit sometimes but the concepts are discussed well and it's not too heavy to read

    Good choice, I've done exactly the same. CGP condenses things well, so it's good to have both as CGP doesn't cover absolutely everything on the course.
