Hi. I have just done AS Physics and I found the following books useful:
- Edexcel AS Physics Revision Guide
- CGP AS-Level Physics Revision
- Edexcel AS Physics Text Books

The CGP Physics book is good, but it really depends on the grade you are aiming for. If you want an A / Near 100% UMS, then you want to be compiling your revision notes from lots of different sources (as different books give more detail about different areas) - obviously textbooks give the most detail.

Also, if your trying to decide which Physics book to buy, on Amazon they have this 'Look Inside' feature which means you can look at a book before you buy to see if you like it.


Hope that helps.

I got the CGP books today, but when I opened the AS level one it kinda fell apart lol so I'll have to take it back. I did have a look through some of the others but I don't like how they're set out, it looks childish if that makes sense.

How did you find doin AS? I'm hoping to do AS and A2 in a year but dunno if it's gunna be possible.

Hi, What course are you doing? I am doing the AQA Physics A but the AQA endorsed textbook lacks a lot of important detail and explanation in my opinion. I prefer the big cgp textbook (the one without the jokes).

Look at Khan academy on YouTube, really helps with the maths part of physics if you're finding that hard

I'm doin the physics AQA A aswell, I bought the CGP books for both maths and physics but my AS physics book fell apart so I had to go out and buy the one with the jokes in lol.

I've got the khan academy app on my phone and he does explain things quite well, my main problem with physics is I didn't go GCSE physics first, so I feel comfortable with the maths side of things but less so when it comes to the particle side of things.

Hi I'm going to be starting the AQA Physics A next week. I've bought the book, however since you are saying it lacks a lot of important detail, can you please link me to the cgp textbook.
