    Over the summer holidays, I am going to go over Maths and Further Maths in order to better prepare myself for college.
    The exam board for it is OCR (Yay! Don't you just love sarcasm?)
    So I was thinking of getting this book for C1:

    But, unfortunately I can't fiind a similar one for OCR Statistics 1, so I was just thinking of getting this one:

    What are your opinions on these choices? Also, what books did you use for Maths and Further Maths for A level which were very helpful which you think could be better? (regular OCR is preferable)

    PS: Yes, I am also getting the 'Head Start to AS Maths' by CGP

    just get the whole CGP AS book as it includes Core 1&2 and all the applied modules.

    We use that S1 book at school, and the C1 version of that S1 book, plus the CGP book for revision.

    The cgp as book isn't very clear for stats.
