I used a revision guide called "My Revision Notes: AQA A-Level Law" written by Craig Beauman and Clare Wilson. It was really helpful for revision purposes, gives a good overall view and summary of the topics and it's written for the new specification (I did my A-Levels in June 2019 using this book). I still think you might need more substantive books for the individual topics but this book really helped me out. If you have any other questions I'd be happy to help

For A Level econ I recommend tutor2u, econplusdal (Youtube), economicshelp, economicsonline and khanacademy though try to prioritise the first two. I bought the tutor2u example essays and found them very useful. I've heard that the econplusdal packs are helpful as well. Though I had the AQA approved textbooks and revision guides, I didn't use them as much as they provide either too much or insufficient information. Also subscribe to the FT and TE.

My main advice is, make lots and lots of essay plans! Often, questions are topical and you can even guess what could come up just by keeping up with current affairs. I correctly predicted some questions haha, though they were just a select few of the 20 plans I hastily made during exam season, so start early. Many students tend to ignore the application aspect or leave it too late so read news complementary to your studies. I suggest going through this FT page as you learn new concepts and try to answer the follow up questions. This should help with all 4 key components -- knowledge, application, analysis, evaluation.

Good luck! I'm happy to answer questions should you have any
