I intend to self-teach A level maths and physics next year, but I am not sure which textbooks would be best. The CGP revision guides seem to be the most up to date and the most ubiquitous, but are they suitable for self-teaching? CGP seems to claim that it covers topics up to A*, does this mean that it contains all the information you need or do they assume any knowledge.

Thanks.

Whilst the CGP Revision guide is excellent for revision, it certainly isn't a suitable replacement for the entire course for self teaching.

I suggest getting one of the Collins textbooks and watching "A Level Physics Online" and "DrPhysicsA" to supplement the books too.

I've self taught myself as level maths, further maths and physics this year and the cgp books are defiantly not detailed enough to be used as textbooks, they are good for revision though.
For anything I found hard in maths I used the youtube channels "hugarty maths" and "exam solutions".
