    I'm starting AS Chemistry in September and I'm studying OCR (B) Salters, and need to get a revision guide. However I have seen that there are so many different ones out there, and want to know from previous students which one is the best. I've know from GCSE just how dire and unhelpful some guides can be, and I don't want to waste money A massive thanks in advance. x

    Well I assume you'll be given the Chemical Ideas and Storylines books by your school (or at least I was). I found that the revision guide which best complimented the aforementioned textbooks was this one, it provides a good account of what knowledge is required and is very exam-content orientated.

    I had all my exams in summer as well. Don't let that put you so off. Keep up with the work and make notes after going over a topic on class to consolidate your learning. I used the chemical ideas book to make my notes and I did all past papers like 2/3 times, ended up with an A .

    Good luck.

    Personally I recommend doing most of your revision from chemical ideas and story lines, that's what I did then I'd read through the revision guide manic fuzz mentioned the night before as a last minute recap
