When I did my theory last year, I bought all 3 DVSA books. The thick blue one, the know your traffic signs one, and the highway code.

Shamefully, I didn't read any of those in real depth and just used a theory test app instead. I pretty much did every question that was stored in its database for a few weeks. You should still buy the Highway code book at the very least, though. It's a good reference.

When I learnt for my theory back in January I failed 4 times until I used the app, then passed on my 5th. All I did was constantly do the practice test over and over, since the theory is mainly basic logic which helps a lot.
My one friend also used the app and passed first time, so I'd recommend you get the app to start with, more than anything.

Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...o.ctt&hl=en_GB
iOS - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/the-...463295925?mt=8

The app also has hazard perception built in too, meaning you can practice that as well, but out of the two you should be learning for the questions, as the hazard perception is the easiest.

Good Luck.

All I used was the DVD for the hazard perception https://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-DV...perception+dvd

And for the theory I used this
Android-https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.focusmm.DTSComb o
Iphone https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/theo...609636705?mt=8

I'd recommend buying this book whilst you will pass with the DVD and app it's useful to have this book as a reference point for driving lessons:

When I had my theory test, I revised the highway code and also the online mock tests: https://toptests.co.uk/

The online mock tests came in handy and some of the questions that came up in the real theory test were included in the online mock tests.

Good luck
