    Yeah, I get what you mean. But if you're aiming to get an A/B by the end of AS this is the right textbook for you, it was really helpful for me.

    Yes!

    Although increasingly the pool of free online resources is growing stronger. studywise.co.uk/revision-resources lays out free online resources for many subjects nicely. Sites like getrevising.co.uk are fantastic and growing stronger as more resources are added daily (although the spec changes mean there is a lack of up to date exam board tailored resources.

    Bookwise try CGP or the official course one.
