    Acccessible Physics or the one mentioned by hassam.
    You may also get Nelkon & Parker along with one of the above to get detail about a specific topic.

    Many thanks for all the suggestions...My apologies for the late reply, but I have been battling the student's equivalent of the mythical, fire-breathing dragon-exams.

    If you want to master the calculations of physics then I would recommend "Pacific Physics A-Level" Volume 1 and 2.
    • Pacific Physics A Level Volume 1ISBN : 9789812712547.
    • Pacific A Level Physics (Volume 2)
      ISBN: 9812083219
    If you want something to explain you all the concepts then go for "Cambridge International AS and A Level Physics Coursebook".
    • Cambridge International AS and A Level Physics Coursebook
      ISBN : 9780521183086

    I don't know about other book but for me Physics book by David Sang, G. j, R.W .... and A study guide by CS Toh, Thomas Cheong has been of great help.

    Pacific Volume 1 and volume 2, A level Physics by Chris Mee and also Roger Muncaster. Roger Muncaster can look slightly out of syllabus, considering the words used in the definitions in it, but it's an awesome book for clearing concepts. I suggest you use Pacific volume 1 and volume 2 as the main Physics book and others as references! Or whatever else suits you better!
    Pacific volume 1 and volume 2, and Roger Muncaster contain extra content than that required by the CIE syllabus. You might also find it helpful to look at the syllabus while studying from one of these books too.
    And also classified Physics Past papers!
    And the one mentioned by Hassaam, that's a quite popular book too!

    Muncaster - best best book ever.! Pacific is an old-fashioned book, it would have been best if you were going for the papers in 18th or 19th century :p Today unfortunately its 21st :D
