Best AQA sociology textbooks - for New Alevels

    • Thread Starter

    With the new A level exam you only need to sit 3 exams, especially if you are doing one year A levels.

    Which sociology textbooks are you using for the AQA specification? Any revision guides which have proven to be helpful?

    Hello, Im also doing the new specification and i have found that the AQA A Level sociology book one by Rob Webb is quite good!

    Hi, if you're doing AQA families and households and education then I'd really recommend that you buy the 'succeed at a-level sociology' revision book. It's a good revision book because unlike others, it actually contains enough information to get a decent grade without it being full of too much unnecessary information that can be headache to learn. Last year I really struggled with AS sociology (got Us and Es in two of my mocks). However after I bought the book (it was released in march) and revised from it for the real exam I got myself a B because of it. Obviously if you want an A then maybe add in information from a textbook into your notes but if you want a semi decent grade then for sure buy the book.
