Eurgh I am feeling really demotivated! I find it so hard answering physics questions; I always seem to need a kick start, it's not that I don't understand the concepts Tbh I really do need to pull my weight but I am almost terrified of answering physics question. Any advice? Good websites? Any good revision notes? ...pleaaaaasseeee!

Also, is a A2 physics much better? Or if you hate AS, are you bound to hate A2 as well?

Oh ****, okay... damnn it. Thanks. Basically, I am doing maths, physics, economics and sociology. I am torn between dropping physics and sociology for A2. I don't really want to take sociology onto A2 cos i dont feel like its really respected, I also hate the essays. Do you think I should start revising another AS course and then try and do the AS and A2 exam in A2? Do you get me?

Hi, i also do AQA physics A AS and i am too between dropping it however i've always enjoyed Physics since GCSE so i am trying to enjoy it through the sheer difficulty of the subject.

I have found two free resources, these are simple notes and aren't really that extensive but sum up the points you need to understand.

http://physicsnet.co.uk/a-level-phys...-a2/mechanics/
http://www.cyberphysics.co.uk/key_st.../module1_1.htm

But, if you are willing to spend a bit of dosh, i found a great CGP book, the only issue i found was the practice questions were rather easy, but you can just take to past paper questions istead.
