Already have textbooks for a few subjects, would appreciate recommendations though

Physics (Have jacaranda 2 and phys in focus, have heard good things about dot point)
Economics (Have Tim Riley, would prefer something to supplement)
Legal Studies (Have Cambridge)
English (Do you even need one for this?)
Mathematics Extension 1/2
Mathematics
Chinese Beginners (hopefully somebody around here has done it :p )
Physics - The books you have are already good enough
English - Possibly Top Notes depending on your texts but not necessary
Maths Ext 1 - Fitzpatrick and Cambridge
Maths Ext 2 - Fitzpatrick, Terry Lee and Cambridge

tim dixon is a good alternative that you can look at; explanations tend to be easier to understand and not as wordy as riley

A really good website is studocu.com where you can find a bunch of great resources and notes from other students. Its currency is your own work - you upload your notes and essays in exchange for like two weeks of premium which gives you access to every single uploaded documents. Its amazing for humanities like english, and studies of religion. Also people have uploaded their year 12 notes like chem and other sciences.

Im still in year 11, but am doing an accelerated subject (studies of religion). Its way more chill, nothing compared to year 12, but I think the main takeaway is to constantly be revising each time you learn new content. For my school at least they release the assessment schedule for the whole year (except for prelim exams). Although you dont know what the content is, your teachers will almost always tell you what module or topic you learn each term so get ahead whilst you can. Spam so past papers too... :lol: Also remeber that the hsc has been around forever so you literally everything is online if you search in the right places.
