I can buy only one of these two books:
1) Advanced Physics for You by Keith Johnson

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Advanced-Phy...hysics+for+you

2) Advanced Physics by Steve Adams

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Advanced-Phy...hysics+for+you

Which one have people used and which one should I buy?
Got a B at AS and looking to get an A overall at A2.

Edit: My exam board is OCR B so need the book which is the closest to that spec

If you do decide to buy Advanced Physics for You by Keith Johnson, I'd pay a little more and buy the new updated version here.

I think that book is updated to bring it in line with the new spec, I'm still on old spec so I need the older edition.
Although, have you bought the new version? Do you like it?

Nope, haven't bought it yet. Though I'm still debating whether to get this one (which our school recommends) or this one by CGP.

Not too sure about the first one as I haven't ysed an OCR officially endorsed book but I do have a CGP revision guide for my old spec course and it's very good, summarises everything to small points which you'll need for exams.
