    I do OCR A biology and looking for a text book which goes into each topic e.g. respiration in detail because the big OCR txt book is average and the CGP revision guide I'm using condenses the processes down too much!! When it comes to application questions, I find myself struggling because I don't know the content in enough detail to be able to fully apply my knowledge. So please, can anyone suggest any good sources/books that you're currently using and find very helpful.

    EDIT: I'm also using a couple of websites to help me. I usually read over their notes while I'm on the bus or something LOL.

    This book is absolutely fantastic I use it for everything, it goes into detail and I pretty much finish most of my assignments with this book alone
