    If you're doing the old spec - these books are great!

    AQA. Look at the spec (core, double and triple(?)) and also on the AQA website. They have recommended textbooks you can use.

    I found a few on the CGP website. Don't know whether to do them separate or as a double.

    Unless you're doing A-level science after, I would stick with double.

    I am taking it triple is harder and am i right in saying there is an exam for each subject?

    also would i need books for each subject or the book linked above would be fine.

    Thanks

    You do the same exams as you would for double, however you do an extra ISA and an three exams. Each extra exam is an extension of each science.

    If you do do triple, it's best you get the seperate science books (the ones for each individual science)
