Anything you do will be useful. Most people won't have revised at all

I've only read like the first chapter. I'm focusing on biology more, because of the enormous content.

I'm only revising over maths and chemistry for now because I dont think I have passed biology (I didn't revise for unit 3 but I'm sure I got A's in the other units)

Aren't you worried? I looked over the A2 modules and they look really confusing IMO

Only 4 pages? You should be ashamed of yourself.

I'd advise to print out sheets of all the mechanisms and reagents/conditions you need to learn now to be prepared. There were a few good ones I found last year in forms of spider diagrams, I'll see if I can find them for you

If you're starting A-level this September, then there's no need to start learning everything by yourself (especially if you aren't sure of what you need to learn, and how). It really is a bit pointless, and you should just wait until you start.

Are you doing A2s now?
A2 biology isn't about learning the entire book, more about applying your knwoledge and knowing the basics of each chapter rather than acing it

lol you jokers, great learn the wrong way of understanding things, or just not understanding it, since your pretty much guessing what going on.

Best thing you can do is sure read up before hand, but don't go in depth, the problem is youll think youll understand it, but its very likely your teacher or in class your figure out a much easier way to remember it or understand it.
I think what would be best is the above or revising after learning something to understand things you didnt get the first time round, i found that so much more useful than reading beforehand, since i did pretty much guess how it worked and that really hindered me in the long term.

for sciences, you really do not have to read up beforehand, best to learn it in lessons, some subjects like history do need some work over the summer, but not science, so dont worry if you havent done any or enough.

I wouldn't start learning now btw but there are a few things you can do to prepare for example look up the specification and edit it to make it more shorter and more to the point, this will save you time when you are closer to your exams and you can just use it as a checklist. Also make cards for all the reagents and conditions you need to know that way you can just go over them before tests and not waste time making them again. Do you know what exam board you're doing for chemistry?

Starting AS in September.

I'd like to know how everything works. I rather have a masterful knowledge than a vague understanding.

That's 4 pages too many.

You don't need to do any prep for your A levels. You should be outside having fun.
