Choosing good AS revision books can be quite challenging whether it be for the Edexcel or Cambridge Syllabus. The issue is normally the depth in which these books cover the pertinent points within their respective syllabuses. 

Sometimes you might need more than one book. Here I would like to make a few recommendations but would like to stress that these should not be used as a replacement for the textbooks you may be using in school. This is simply because the revision books available at this level are currently not comprehensive enough.

For AS Edexcel I would recommend: Edexcel AS Physics Revision guide for Shap and concept led approaches  ISBN 978-1-84690-595-7 and Oxford Revision Guides for AS and A level Physics ISBN978-0-19-918095-0. Whilst the latter book does contain material outside the Edexcel syllabus, it does reinforce many aspects of the Edexcel syllabus in more detail than the first one.

For AS Cambridge I would recommend International AS and A level Physics Revision Guide by Robert Woodside ISBN 978-1-4441-1267-2

One concern many of my students often highlight is not understanding scientific terminology, and therefore I would highly recommend AS/A level dictionary by Mike Crundell ISBN 0-86003-377-5
