    Well I bought the AQA English Language B textbook from Amazon which is about £25 and it is essential to my course and reading it helps! I recommend wider reading, eg reading research papers from linguists etc too.

    Oh I had my AS exams last week, must say, the exam was different to what I've been learning as a lot of what my teachers have taught me is on the old spec.

    Get hold of the books for the new spec, not the old one. Check EngLangBlog on Twitter (and the blog) for info about the other stuff that might help. Read emagazine & Babel... Listen to Word of Mouth on Radio 4 each week and Lexicon Valley on Slate.com... Do lots of practice questions and ask your teacher lots of questions.
