    Hi,

    I'm already going to have the Nelson Thornes textbook for both, however, can anyone recommend any other textbooks which I can use too? For AS I used the CGP textbook, I thought it was really good especially for Chem, but I'm not sure if it would be as good for A2 level?

    Thanks )

    They summarise the topics well and helped a lot with revision! Good luck with A2!

    I used those, the nelson thornes book and I would also recommend the collins student support books, they are pretty short but help with revision. Best of luck
