    Does anyone know any good websites or books for A level Physics? I'm really struggling to find resources that give you information that will actually help you in the exam like chemguide does. I feel like my textbook doesn't go into enough detail :/ If you've passed A level Physics, pleasseee give me any tips.

    Hi, I'm doing Edexcel IAL units 2, 4, 5 and 6. The unit 2 I'm resitting because I got an E in that. What I struggle the most with is electricity so I'd like to start with that and make sure I really understand it. Thanks for offering to help!

    Hyperphysics is pretty good as it explains things in bitesized chunks.

    I think you would need professional coaching from a good teacher to get a good grade in A'Level physics. He/she would work on your concepts and will also revise Past Papers with you. I did the same and got an A* in A Level Physics.

    To help you out i've in boxed you a very nice link

    Hi,

    My top three books are:

    Advanced Physics by Steve Adams (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Advanced-Phy.../dp/0199146802) which covers all the physics you would ever need to know for any A level course, and it's a really easy book to read.

    Practice in Physics (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practice-Phy...cs+4th+edition) has hundred of questions that will really test you.

    Finally there is A Level Physics by Robert Muncaster (http://www.amazon.co.uk/-Level-Physi...bert+muncaster) which is 30 years old, costs less than £2, is just black and white but has the best physics (that goes well beyond any A Level Physics you will ever need.)

    Hi, your YT channel is very useful
    Do you also recommend the Advanced Physics for You book?

    I have to choose between that and the first book you mentioned. I also do the OCR B course but I use your videos to help me out too.

    Advanced Physics for You is a good book used by many teachers, and well suited to the A Level Physics you will learn in school, but I did find the book by Steve Adams went into a lot more detail and I would happily read it for interest not just because I was studying the subject in class.

    Glad you liked the videos - I am now in the process of making videos for the rest of the A2 content which will be suitable for every exam board.

    I strongly recommend the A Level Physics book by Roger Muncaster. You can get it from eBay for really cheap. It's honestly amazing, don't know what I would have done without it!

    I reckon I have about 130 videos to make to cover the content, my deadline I have given myself is the end of December.

    Then I'll do more past papers and example questions.
