    Hey guys,

    Can you recommend any books/revision for OCR AS Physics A for the 2015 spec. I am aiming for a high A this year and would be needing a good revision guide or text book to help me learn syllabus back to back.

    Btw I used cgp books for gcse and got straight a stars across all my exams for the three science so should I invest in a AS cgp book this year or would i better of buying another book instead.

    I used the CGP revision guide and the Oxford textbook this year, both were pretty good

    A middle A, 108/140. If I'm being honest its mainly because the new spec was very easy

    Wow well done. I thought they would make the new spec a lot more challenging tbh. Btw is the oxford text book a general one for all exam board or is it one just for the exam board.

    Is this it this by any chance?

    Its this one https://www.educationumbrella.com/a-...FaMy0wod3ekL8g

    Yeh I thought the new spec was going to be more difficult but when it came down to the tests most of it was just memory. I only did a couple of past papers, the rest of my revision was making/reading notes from the revision guide

    EDIT: That textbook is for the whole 2 year course, not just AS
