Hey, I was wondering what the best revision/study guides were best for national 5's?
I am taking maths, english, chemistry, physics, computing science and geography.
Any responses would be appreciated.

bbc bitesize helped me with national 5
Mrs Adam's chemistry YouTube channel
Scholar has resources as well
I liked using Leckie Leckie textbooks over how to pass but that's a personal preference

For maths, definitely https://www.national5maths.co.uk/ !

For the others, are you meaning general resources, or books? Would not say books are essential- not if you're getting good resources from school (and there's loads online too )

Would agree with the above that Bitesize is a good resource - it is good for getting a base level understanding of a topic, which you'd then need to build on with questions, examples, and (further along the line) past papers.

For physics and Chem I like hodder and gibson how to pass books and geography I like the brightredbooks nat 5 geo one but it all comes down to personal choice (how much colour, diagrams that you like etc)

For all of them, I like how to pass books because they contain everything you need to know, introduction and tips for exams and assignment. But beware: some writers can either: write very long ass paragraphs not condensing everything (higher admin book) or the writers sometimes don’t bother to include everything. But I believe for your subjects it will not be the case (for computing book). So I reccommend them

Personally I would use free online resources such as BBC bitesize, scholar, nationalfivemaths.com, youtube videos and if you look up specific subjects there might be a revision website for it (I found a music one, yeah I was surprised too at the time). There are so many resources out there for nat 5 and the best learning is past papers.
I wouldn't buy books/revision guides as hopefully the notes you have in class are good enough to work from, but if you look up notes for subjects you will find them as some school put entire topic notes on their websites.

Thank you for the mentions stereotypeasian and Valeriex! Just in case any of you aren't registered for all of your National 5 subjects (or other levels) on SCHOLAR yet, toggle 'Display other courses' towards the bottom of the 'My SCHOLAR' page that appears on logging in to see them: https://scholar.hw.ac.uk/

We are also running (or have already run, in some cases, but recordings are now available) a series of Online Tutor Sessions to help introduce our National 5 courses: https://scholar.hw.ac.uk/sessions.html
