    So I’ve decided to self teach myself AS level sociology. Even though it’s really late to start I really enjoy the subject and am really fond of it.

    Anyways I was wondering which book was the best to use? I looked up the CGP revision guide but my only fear with it is that it may not include all of the information I may need, therefore I’m a little scared that I won’t get a good grade.

    The CGP is great for sociology a level. But to be honest I think it's risky self teaching yourself AS content until may or June time. Only because there's a LOT of content in the subject, most of is is easy to comprehend but some concepts are confusing. On top of all the memorising you have to perfect your essay writing skills like there's a 20 marker in the AS, i don't know if there will be a 30 marker. I don't want you to not try doing something you're interested in, but it's about making wise decisions in a level. Try looking at uni and see what you actually want to study (for example is sociology really necessary for your uni course?). What other subjects are you studying?
