    I'm not sure if you mean the A or B course, but when I did OCR chemistry A we were given this book and then the A2 version the year after: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/12138...f13=80&ff14=10
    Are you sure your school/college won't give you a book though? There is also a matching revision guide or others like CGP you could look into, although I didn't use one.

    on second thoughts I think the spec may have changed now so this might be no use....

    Hey,

    I noticed you asked book A or book B. The Chemistry exam board is OCR (salters) for where I am going to go. What books would be needed for this seeming it is not A or B?

    There are three books- the Chemical Storylines books are the main books for the course - it's the sort of 'context' of the topic. The Chemical Ideas book is the theory behind the course. You'll need both the Ideas and Storylines books.

    Textbooks:
    Chemical Ideas (for AS and A2)
    Chemical Storylines AS
    Chemical Storylines A2

    Revision Guides:
    AS
    A2

    The Salters course is Chemistry B.

    Don't buy books until you start the course, find out what the school are going to provide or what text book they require you to use.

    This is true.

    Frankly, stop worrying - you start the course in September, not in July.
