I think that the edexcel textbooks are pretty good actually, but edexcel obvs covers slightly different stuff and has different required practicals to AQA.
Maybe look at some physics revision websites like physbot, maths and physics tutor and isaacphysics
Good luck (:

I use the cgp a level textbook, I find it useful and it explains things well and has a checklist at the end of each topic of stuff you need to know. Alevel physics online is a good website - its free for Y12 and then paid for Y13

I do a level physics with AQA. I found the course textbook (the oxford one) is good for explaining topics to an extent, but at times it is hard to process info especially when u pre read a chapter. When I am learning a topic prior to covering it in class I tend to make notes without using the textbook.

I only really use the textbook for equations in chapters that are useful to know when tackling questions within a topic, for example in SHM and circular motion, there are equations that don't appear on the equation sheet and are useful to know as it saves time in the exam if u have a question that requires use of that equations as it means u don't have to necessarily derive the equation and can just write it down on the page.

Also the end of chapter questions in the book are pure gold imo, if u look at the mark schemes and make notes of the additional guidance u will find it very useful trust me.

The other textbook i have is the cgp one which is good for revision and quickly learning something
