https://www.amazon.co.uk/AQA-Level-Sociology-Book-Including/dp/0954007913/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=aqa+a+level+sociology&qid=1607527352&sr=8-3
^ The red version (AS Level/Year 1) and the blue version (A-Level/Year 2) are okay textbooks for A-Level sociology (AQA), but they're lacking in a bit of depth sometimes - they're not bad though and most schools do use them.

^ This version and the one for A-Level/Year 2 is rather dense, but they are excellent textbooks for A-Level sociology (AQA) - the other textbook may be lacking content/info for certain topics.

As for revision, I recommend making use of the knowledge organisers from Hectic Teacher which are really good (I'll link these below) and TheTeacherSociology on YouTube.
