Maths, in the main, is simply adapting to new challenges. I personally feel that too many students say "Further Maths is no jump" after they have done S1 and FP1 in the first half of year 12.
Make no mistake the 2's/3's modules, regardless of board, are designed to be harder. Its all about whether you have (i) The ability (ii) The work ethic/desire (iii) time and (iv) resources/support to make it worth it.
I find some of the content so rewarding yet if a student doesnt have the 4 elements above it can be a waste of an A level of a case of obtaining a lower grade than you could have in another subject.
IMO gaining a D or lower in AS or A2 Further Maths is a good enough reason not to take it.

I don't completely agree with you.
Do A-Level content really needs ability?
Most of the questions are straight forward questions, these don't require ability. Ability is more tested in STEP questions.
(ii) work ethic/desire
This is the most important thing.
If you have the desire then you can do it in less time as well, most of the units can be completely self-studied in less than 10 days.
I feel the book is more than enough for preparation for A-Level maths/further maths.
