HiThese are the books you need to get. You can get the full a level textbook in the picture instead of the as one as it has the content for both as and a level. So if you're buying the a level one there's no need to get the as. The cgp revision guide also contain as and a level material. You need to get the latest 2015 ones because of the new spec. If you search on google A Level Biology AQA Complete Revision and Practice it will come up and the original price is £20 but you can find cheaper ones as well. Good luck.

P.S here's a link to a thread full of bio resources

My class had the Oxford AQA AS Biology books (the new ones for the new specification) and we found a lot of the stuff in there was not actually in the new specification anymore - they've forgotten to take some stuff out. They are good for class work, but I wouldn't try using them to revise; they're too bulky.

The CGP books are the best for revision and make everything a lot easier to follow.

I've got an electronic copy of it on Kerboodle because my school is subscribed to it. Tbh I rarely used the textbook as I found the cgp guide to be more useful but if you want to buy it you can. There's no difference in the contents. Every single topic on the spec is in this book and in much more detail.

HEY! Sorry for the capitals I just really wanted to draw your attention to this study guide because this could literally be one of the best things you buy for yourself. It is so helpful and detailed and if you buy the CGP revision guide in addition to their study guide (textbook) you will find yourself learning the information so much easier. I really can't recommend this book enough, I just bought mine for physics and it actually explains things I have never learnt before in such clarity it's just amazing.
