Hi,

Im really struggling in Physics because my teacher is quite bad and the resources they provide are terrible. Where can I learn what is needed for my exam board in depth? My exam board is AQA.

Hello fellow physicist! I'm doing the same this yr so I hope this helps (I'm assuming you're doing AQA physics a and not AQA physics b, and not linear but the modular course.... anyways, enjoy )

First study the specification:
http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...ec-at-a-glance

http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...ubject-content

http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...50-W-SP-14.PDF

Then read the textbooks and make notes:
AQA Physics A AS: Student's Book https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/07487828..._m4QEub1ASD0J7

AS-Level Physics for AQA A: Student Book https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/18476290..._x4QEub04063BN

Advanced Physics Second Edition (Advanced Sciences) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/01983929..._v5QEub15TA3RG

Here's a handy dictionary to use to explanation words and to memorise definitions:
A-Z Physics Handbook+ Online 4th Edition (Complete A-Z) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/03409910..._n6QEub0JG8GQC

A Dictionary of Physics (Oxford Paperback Reference) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/01992339..._P6QEub10B8FY7

AS/A-level Physics Essential Word Dictionary https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/08600337..._16QEub0GFS59G

And use these revisions guides to revise:
AS-Level Physics AQA A Complete Revision & Practice https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/18476212..._V4QEub1WVK176

https://m.waterstones.com/BookDetail...bookId=6976461

https://m.waterstones.com/BookDetail...bookId=6976134

http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9...FTCWtAodpVoA6A

Then practise with these:
Practice in Physics 4th Edition https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/14441212..._l1QEub0Z5F513

Calculations for A Level Physics Fourth Edition https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/07487674..._BeREub19VB2AZ

AS/A-Level Physics: Mechanics & Materials, Electricity, Waves and Particles Flash Revise Pocketbook https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/14441090..._ohREub0MZJE1P

Physics (SparkNotes Study Cards) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/14114700..._xhREub0V4DVA4

Finally test yourself with past papers:
