Geology A level help

DD year 13 is doing Geology A level this year. Sadly, her teacher is due to retire and dd says, he's lost interest in the class and she's a bit scared to ask for extra help. There are no other staff at college who teach Geology either, which doesn't help her.

Dd is looking for reliable learning resources for;
GL4: Interpreting the Geological Record
GL5: Geological Evolution of Britain
GL5: Geology of the Lithosphere

Does anybody please have any recommendations?

Assume you've had a look at the OCR Geology textbook?

www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-Geology-Level-Stephen-Davies/dp/1911208144/ref=pd_sim_14_8?psc=1&_encoding=UTF8&tag=mumsnetforum-21&refRID=RWDRTJWN0Z3Q4BQREG12

Also The Geology of Britain by Peter Toghill may help:

www.amazon.co.uk/Geology-Britain-Peter-Toghill/dp/1840374047/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&keywords=geology+of+uk&tag=mumsnetforum-21&ie=UTF8&qid=1516802160&sr=1-5

And I'd recommend the Penguin Dictionary of Geology (it got quite a few people through 1st year uni).

Thanks Agnes - I too have a DS who has lost faith in the geology tutor :-(
