    Hello,I'm currently in y11...

    I have started revising for my Exams Already...
    I have a £1000 (That's right) budget to spend on revision guide,stextbooks and so and so to improve my revision...

    I would like to buy the kindle or digital copy of such books and preferably all from amazon...

    My exam boards:

    1)Sciences(Physics,biology and chemistry):AQA
    2)English Language and Lit.duqas
    3)Maths and further mathsdexcel
    4)Computing:OCR
    5)Geography:AQA A
    6)Business Studies:AQA
    7)Musicdexcel

    Please could you recommend or create a amaozn basket for the perfect revision books under 1k overall...

    Also,the bets answer will get rep? And a giveaway?

    Thanks.

    P.S:I don't care about the amount of money and don't want answer asking why and so for just answers.

    You don't even need revision books for GCSEs.
    The only time you'll need to buy books is at uni, so you better off just saving the money.

    If you are giving a rep away and you have two pips, then that is a mighty tempting offer.
    I can imagine there will be many takers eager to do your bidding. A bigger budget would have been nicer.

    wth, most revision guides are useless for GCSE anyway.

    For AQA Sciences, I got 3 for £10, and then the English ones varied between £4 and £10 so about £25 altogether for them.
    The Computing guide is horrible so don't get it. Didn't do Geography but people used the cheap CGP one.

    You might want a couple of workbooks here and there but they're like £3/4 so I'm not even sure where you got £1000 from....

    There's no need to spend that much. Most GCSE revision guides cost £10 max anyway and you can find so many better resources that are free online.

    I got 13 revision guides for £50. You've overestimated GCSEs. Save the money for uni. GCSEs require specification learning at most, revision guides are not the most effective sources in the world.

    Even if you do buy revision guides for all of them, it wouldn't amount to £1000.

    I'm assuming this is a troll... To spend £1,000 on revision books, for something that matters as little as GCSEs, would be ridiculous, wasteful, idiotic and also incredibly hard (how you'd find enough books to reach that amount is beyond). Just go to classes, Christ. Don't spend a grand on revision books.

    I never get why people spend full price on textbooks. In the vast majority of cases you can get the books for literally a few quid plus package and posting second hand. A lot of my books literally cost £2.81 1p plus £2.80 postage and packaging.

    sometimes its unavoidable and you have to spend a little more but in most cases you can find the book very cheap second hand. There is literally no difference the text is the same I have never got a textbook with pages missing, something not been legible due to damage or anything disgusting on it. All of this was my fears to begin with in getting second hand books but It has not happened once. I like to get 3 books approx for A level module (doing maths modular A levels) in vast majority of cases I got the book for £2.81.

    if I spent £20 buying them first hand I really could approach £1000 or even exceed it, by sticking to second hand I am barely going past £100.

    its exactly the same book why do you need a new copy its exactly the same its just throwing away money.
