    DO NOT STUDY OVER THE SUMMER!

    I've said this many times on these forums. You will burn out! Relax, pick up a hobby etc. instead.

    However if you don't want to follow that advice, here are a few websites/books:

    1) Maths - ExamSolutions.net
    ExamSolutons is a free website with maths videos and worked solutions to a lot of past papers - Essential if you want a good grade in maths!

    2) Biology - CGP Revision Guide
    I sat AS Biology last year and A2 Biology this year. The only book that I ever revised/studied from was the CGP revision guide

    Business Studies and Spanish - I have no idea. I didn't take those two subjects.

    Seriously though, DO NOT STUDY OVER THE SUMMER!

    It will help if you can find out what exam boards your A-levels use? Then you can buy revision guides and start reading up. To be honest a Google search on "A-level Biology", for example, might open up some interesting topics for you to research. You could also head to your local library and do some reading. Don't worry about exactly what's on your course as you'll have plenty of time to study and revise as you're learning during the year, but if a topic comes up that you've already come across then you'll ace it!

    I've heard good things about them from other students, especially for the pre-release case study I think?

    Oh yeah! They're really good at what they do I'd recommend buying some of there materials especially on the research exams where you need to provide you own research. They offer seminars where they travel the country from what I remember it costs like £20 but you get free materials and really good tips on exam technique (Which for me is was helpful as I'd rather bullet point everything not about that life)
