    Hello!
    I recently started my AS year and I take Physics, Chemistry and Biology (I'll do be doing Maths privately for Oct-Nov)
    I needed opinions on whether or not I should purchase reference books for my subjects (in particular, the CIE endorsed Hodder Books).
    My Chemistry teacher says I don't need them.
    I want to know, is it practical and worth it?
    Were you able to manage your time studying from two books?
    Also, will it be impractical for me to follow 2 textbooks from different exam boards, say one is CIE and the other is OCR?
    Moreover, I would like to earn an Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award, so I want to give A Levels my everything.
    Any other study tips you would suggest?
