From my personal experience, the revision guide is the only one you should buy as long as you have access to textbooks in school (plus you can take pictures of certain questions/activities from them to do in your own time).

Textbooks are really for learning the content and seeing it for the first time, which you should be doing in school time; at home I think the revision guide will help more and it's not worth spending money on textbooks of your own because usually you will use them in school.

I have access to some textbooks in school.. However for some subjects all we use is the powerpoint that the teacher prepared

Then if possible you should ask if your teachers can email you the powerpoints after every lesson, or if they can show you where they find the powerpoints (if they don't make them themselves) just to gather more resources.

If you're studying from scratch then textbook will be useful but if you have an understanding of topics and this is just for revision CGP guide is the GOAT

It's not the end of the world, you should still be making notes in class to learn the content, and then use a revision guide to consolidate
