    Would it be sufficient to use the textbooks given by the exam boards to get an A-A* in these subjects?
    Or Is it better to supplement with other textbooks? If yes, then how? If you're wondering which exam board I am doing it is CIE, but any input from people taking other exam boards are more than welcome.
    Thanks guys...

    For Aqa, f.maths the text books are absolutly awful so learning form these would be difficult. As long as you do past papers you can do most FMaths questions but there is always one Q where you need a good understanding. Normal maths should be fine with text books.

    For the most part. Physics text books tned to be pretty good, and anything you dont understand will be relatively simple to find online or in a library.
    Maths and Further maths I found the textbooks more than sufficient to learn what I needed to do, but your main source of revision will be past papers for these two.
