    Did it last year..
    FP1: just do more papers and understand it
    D1: make sure you know all definitions by heart before the exam, know exactly the steps. They want to see the working, not the final answer.

    Does anyone use any revision guides for further pure? Because I don't really understand the textbook so I would like to buy something different to revise

    Textbooks arent great, many mistakes as well. Personally i dont revise maths using revision guides, more practice the better really

    Thank you, I have quite a bit of time between my other exams and d1 to fine tune all the definitions and stuff so that should be on point

    Which one(s)? If it's just FP1 then you're best off revising from the textbook and practising. If you're doing the later further pure modules I can suggest more books to get.

    These two are good. They cover all of the maths in all the further pure modules for most boards and go further than the spec in a lot of areas. They're definitely worth it if you do multiple A2 further maths modules. If you just do FP2 then they'll be useful but you won't use many of the chapters.
