    Hi,

    At my school, I do not have very good physics teachers, so I want to self-teach the units of AS physics myself but the book I currently have isn't really helping!!

    I currently have the 'Salters Horners Advanced Physics for Edexcel AS Physics: Student Book' which was given to me from my teachers. This book mainly talks about irrevelant information that I have never seen in any exams.

    So, does anyone know any better detailed students book for Edexcel which will help me in getting an A at AS Physics this year.

    Thank you!

    I am in the exact same situation as you. Well my teachers aren't thaaat bad, but trying to understand topics first-time round from them is really difficult as I generally don't have a clue as to what they are saying. I will leave links to the books I use below.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Phys.../dp/0340888024

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/184762129...RC5Z7HRGGF0Q80

    I prefer to use the CGP book to understand topics first time round, and for revision later on. And for in-depth understanding I use the book in the first link as it does go into quite a bit of depth. I would also advise that you look at real life examples of some of the applications of physics on the internet.

    Hope this helped.

    Thank you for this! I've ordered the first link and I already have the other revision guide so it should be fine!!

    Thank you again
