Long story short, I'm bad at geography in general... on top of that I have a teacher who I personally don't think is very good at teaching. Are there any decent GCSE Geography books out there that I can use to self-study with? I think I'm studying AQA if that helps- thanks in advance confused:confused:

I used to use several of the textbooks written by David Redfern, who was formerly the chief AQA examiner for geography. His A-Z Geography Handbook was particularly good for nailing definitions and explaining general concepts.

You may also look into the 'Geography Review' magazine, which is targeted at GCSE and A level geography students.

CGP Revision guide is a classic winner (as is the workbook). I've got the complete revision practise but it's not much different to the revision guide. I'd also recommend CGP for any other subject. Pearson is a giant in revision guides etc. Another well-respected revision guide producer is Collins (including Letts and Lonsdale), despite it's website being truly awful. I recommend them in the following order:
