Yeah don't rely on the Library when it reaches pre-exam periods it'll totally blow you away, by that I mean the frantic re-newing and "Queueing" for books from another guy who's borrowed it off the library.
When you get to University, it's even worser!!
As for the books lets see, I'll assume its all Year 11:
- 2U Advance English
This one is slightly harder it'll depend upon what your teacher wants to teach you. It may be a good time to get ahead of the other students by focusing on your weak points, such as Comprehension skills: Five Sense’s Contemporary English Reading & Writing For Year’s 11 & 12 , or even Essay Writing (Excel's easy guide to essay writing).
- 3U Maths
I would STRONGLY advise you to buy: Cambridge's Mathematics 3 Unit – Year 11 (Bill Pender), if you're slightly struggling with Maths I would suggest: Accelerated Maths Learning – (2 & 3 Unit Course) – Understanding Year 11 Maths.
- 2U Chemistry
Macmillan Chemistry Pathways 1 is the way to go, it might be slightly expensive, Brand New is almost $62, but it explains all the technical aspects. Though if you're a person who gets somewhat sleepy reading words more than pictures it may be hard, but it definitely helps.
- 2U Economics
I can recommend no other book but Leading Edge's Year 11 Market Economy (Does not really matter which year it's published since the core material is always the same, the only difference the newest editions have are a few Statistics Tables)
The Rest I'm not sure, since I didn't take those. All of the books I suggested I still have selling. To be honest I'm not saying all this just because I'm selling these, but it really helped me in Prelimary, depending on Government Teachers these days are about as good as going to Charles Sturt University and reading the notes and syllabus dot points for every subject.
