    If you are taking the exams in summer 2018 then you will not be doing the new 9-1 grading system for science subjects.

    The Edexcel web site lists a number of books suitable for the existing 2011 specification if you click on the published resources tab of the relevant subject page. I'd recommend you invest in a student book rather than just a revision guide as you are teaching yourself (unless you have previously studied the subjects and just need to revise the material for the exams).
