    Hello, I was looking at some text books/ revision guides to buy for the new specification. Since I am doing 4 AS levels if I bought a textbook for each of it it would cost too much. I already have the text books that I had to buy from school but I am not sure if that is enough. (for biology my teacher sometimes says she got the notes on the power point from other textbooks :?)

    I am not really sure about revision guides because it is okay for short notes and bullet points but I could make that myself , since I tend to make notes whilst revising anyways ? I am doing AQA Biology, OCR chemistry, Edexcel Physics and Edexcel Economics.
    Do you have any recommendations on what I should do ? Also revising tips would be helpful!

    Thankyou ^-^

    Are any of the books you need in the library? Or have you looked into second hand books? Perhaps ask the A2 students if they have any AS books to get rid of?

    I would never buy I book that I haven't looked through and decided I would use it :nah:

    Thankyou 😊 x I looked in my school library and they only have few new ones and I am not really close to people in the year above 😖 but I will check out the central library and see if they have any 😊
