    physicsandmathstutor has saved my ass for exams, so you might find it very useful. A lot of the content on there is that used in classrooms by teachers.

    I'm self teaching myself A-level Physics over this summer (except the Mechanics side, as I have learnt all of it from M1-3), and I'm just using free online resources rather than books.

    I use this book (though it goes beyond the syllabus, but does have good stuff). I'd suggest having the official AQA textbook to not confuse you on what you should know (unless you understand the syllabus)

    Some other stuff I use are:
    YouTube (just type in the topic name and there's loads of videos)
    Khan Academy
    Physics and Maths Tutor
    AK Lecutres

    Bath Advanced Science: Physics, by Robert Hutchings Very well written, very logical, includes many questions and examples.
    It's older but if you can track down a copy - I found one really cheap- then do so.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bath-Advanc.../dp/0174387318

    Not sure If i'm allowed to include a link but it's there.

    Also Weblinks. This Channel on Youtube is the best. Dr Physics a.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vsA...99A319E129A5B7

    Clear, concise and very well explained.

    A Website called Isaac Physics. Great resource designed to get you to think through questions logically.
