    Sorry I know this isn't a textbook rec (normally swear by CGP myself) but if you're stuck youtube videos can be pretty good. For AQA Tywin Lannister's videos are good - sometimes it just helps to have someone go through something rather than reading through a wall of text.
    If this is something you're doing already then I apologise in advance and good luck with the search, otherwise I hope this helps in the meantime

    To add on that: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrERintoul this guy's pretty good.


    The CGP books is nice, but has some tiny mistakes in it, so if you use it, use it with chem revise or chem guide. (my preference) After you've read through, done the exam-style questions, made some notes, then youre done with the book.
    The exam style questions are good for knowledge recall.

    Then pastpapers are your best friend.
