I am a triple science student but I find remembering earlier topics hard like on the last topic of Paper 1, I tested myself on earlier topics in Paper 1 but didn't know much so I wanted to know if Textbooks are best for me or Revision Guides.

Thank you for your opinions!

textbooks can be quite dense and can contain a lot of unnecessary information- i never bought a textbook for any of my gcse subjects, revision guides are good enough imo :dontknow: even if your knowledge is quite weak of some topics the revision guide will sum it up nicely for you.

Revision guides are much better in my opinion, it only contains key points you need to know and usually has practice questions + answers to test yourself. Some revision guides are : (also would recommend buying used ones as they're cheaper and have notes from other people which could benefit you)
The Collins AQA GCSE 9-1 Bio, Chem and Physics Revision Guides.
The CGP AQA GCSE 9-1 Bio, Chem and Physics Revision Guides.
If you don't want to spend money buying any then here are some links to channels which help with science :
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqb...Xw9Il7sBVG3_bw - goes over each topic following AQA Spec.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBg...R4QIK2e0EfJwaA - goes over the whole of bio, chem and physics p1&2 in 1 hour videos
Hope it helps! Good luck!!
