The only thing I know is that the student book is more expensive. What extra things does it include?

I believe student books have a lot more practice questions and can go into more detail than revision guides. Revision guides, on the other hand, get straight to the point - clearer and more concise but have less practice.

Okay so the revision guide is for revision. The revision guide is essentially all the material condensed into a relatively short book. However the student book is essentially a text book which actually properly explains the concepts, the student book is better for learning the content for the first time and should accompany you through the course. The revision guide is for at the end when you've already learnt everything and you need to go over it quickly.
In short - the student book explains it more whereas the revision guide assumes you already kind of know it

So would the student book be better at the moment as I'm in Year 12?

Personal preference really. If it takes you a while to pick up new content, go with the student book, otherwise take the revision guide.

It takes me a while to understand things but once I've got it I'm normally fine.

I also feel like the student one would be better as the notes we get from one of our teachers are fairly basic and I would prefer more details versions.

Nope.
If normally you understand it you get it, I would suggest a revision guide. You would 99.99% learn all the content in the revision guide and student books anyway, but the student book is if you want more practice.

I want more practice, so probably the student book. More practice generally helps me get more confident, which always helps.

So student book I guess!

I would recommend the revision one, I just opened mine it's not too simple nor too detailed the other one is hugeee(For me)

Having a very detailed book isn't ideal for me as if I know something I'll just skip the whole paragraph and stuff. Since you don't need to self-teach as well you shouldn't have an issue with a not so detailed book.

It's also ideal if you have a test or something just to revise (Like the name suggests)
