    Which board? If Edexcel, I'd recommend George Facers' A2 Chemistry Book. That's very helpful and has very good explanations.

    Thank you so much! I think i'll take International A-level but are there big differences between Edexcel and International A-level like syllabus or difficulty?

    The main difference in cie chemistry and edexcel chemistry is that cie chemisty has practical which is tough atleast for me it was...and in edexcel chemistry there is alternative to practical instead of practical..that makes edexcel chem a bit easier then cie chem.

    I've done Edexcel International A Level myself. I'm just waiting for my results now. There's no difference in the difficulty level nor the syllabus. They're the same.

    Bath Advanced Chemistry would be a good choice.
    The Physics one is great and explains everything.

    If you can track it down for a good price that is.
