    I need to order a textbook for AQA Physics and Ive been advised not to get the cheaper CGP one, and to get either the Hodder or Oxford one. Can anyone recommend which one is better?

    The Oxford one is just the old Nelson Thrones book just with a new front cover. I have both and they are pretty much identical - even the artwork is the same.

    I would go and buy the old AS and A2 Nelson Throne's one and also buy the CGP one, so you get the best of both worlds. I personally find the CGP one better. The hodder one is terrible - no explanations or step by step solutions given.

    £2.81 for a used copy as well...

    btw, Nelson Thorne's is owned by Oxford hence why they are they have identical content
