    Hi,

    I want to self teach another AS (maybe even whole A Level) or two before exam period because it sounds like fun. Computer science seems pretty straightforward, and looking at a past paper I could already answer a good amount of questions.

    Does anyone have any tips, or more importantly a recommended text book?

    Thanks !

    Do the AS. It's too late to bother doing the A level.

    PG Online OCR A Level Computer Science. The best textbook for OCR A-Level CS in my opinion.

    Wouldn't the whole A-level require a NEA (non-exam assessment) which would be hard, if not impossible, to do if self-administered?
