# Revision books for Maths OCR A-level

Announcements Posted on
1. Hi everyone,

I was wondering if you could help me with something regarding revision book to buy. I am currently on holiday and will be joining sixth form for the first time in September. I will be taking maths and I thought it would be wise to get a bit of revision in before I start so I rang the Maths teacher at the sixth form. And he told me I should and the exam board is OCR and that there is 'Ordinary OCR' and 'OCR (MEI).

So can anyone who is a teacher who is doing there AS levels for maths on the same exam board tell me which revision books to buy maybe send me a link or something?

Thanks

EDIT: I've just found these two are they the right ones?

2. You won't do both OCR AND OCR MEI. You will do one of the two. I am guessing your teacher was telling you you will follow the normal OCR A specification (your second book).

Okay, well maybe he won't know which we are doing until just before September? Or is that not really a possibility?

Also are OCR A and OCR MEI just much for muchness really? so do you recommend I just buy the OCR A one?

If you haven't started the course yet, is a revision guide the right thing? I presume their purpose would be more to reinforce material that the student's already covered, rather than to help them learn it from scratch.

I'm self-studying OCR maths at the moment from the standard course textbooks by Neill/Qualding and I would reccomend them. Although I assume you'll be given your own textbooks once sixth form begins.

I'm sure he knows which one he is doing. Do you have a prospectus from the school/college in question? These usually give the specification.

Yes I do but it isn't in there...
