I am in Year 12 and I am trying to find a good textbook for OCR RS A Level. Can anyone give me a recommendation on which textbook I should get? I think there are two different textbooks you can get:
-OCR Religious Studies A Level Year 1 and AS by Michael Wilkinson and Hugh Campbell
-Oxford A Level Religious Studies for OCR: AS and Year 1 Student Book by Libby Ahluwalia and Robert Bowie

The reviews for the first textbook is that it is too detailed and it is hard to understand, however the reviews for the second textbook is that it is not detailed enough.

Please give me your opinion on both of the textbooks!

Hey I took OCR RS A Level in year 12 but dropped it this year! Our school gave us the first textbook you mentioned and based our learning from that book. But I decided to also buy the second textbook. I think both are very useful as it gives you more information about the topic and more knowledge to include in your essay. However in my opinion, the second textbook is more useful as after each topic, they include "Discussing (Topic)". These gives you titles which can be potential essay titles which I found more useful than the other textbook which only included objections to the theory/ethic.

I'm also selling my Oxford A Level RS textbook if anyone is interested! Just PM me

Thanks for replying... I think I will get the second one, just as you recommended. How much are you selling your textbook for?
