Hiya, I've just started A-level geology this year and I'm not sure how to write accurate and detailed notes since there aren't a lot of resources beside the textbook.
I've been told in my other subjects (biology and chemistry) that the textbook isn't enough to do well. If this is the same for geology what else do I need to do to do well.
Anyone have any resources they would recommend?

What people have told you is a lie, you can do well using the textbook. The most important thing is to apply your knowledge to the different contexts presented in the exam using past papers. It's always worth doing some extra reading around the subject using reviews, or something as a simple as the Very Short Introduction to Geology, so you can consolidate what you've learnt and to gain some depth to the A-level content.

HI, I have just started geology as well. Did you do GCSE geology? It might be nice to start a thread for geology if we can!

I didn't take GCSE geology or even geography but that would be great to do a thread. whether we just reuse this one or start a new one...

Thank you this is reassuring, I thought this would be the case.

Great news! I don't mind - we might as well use this one. However, I have also made one too ( https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6194882 ) in case it gets confusing.
