    This and only this.

    I do have the CGP AS-level revision guide but that was more for M1. Never looked in the C1 or C2 sections.

    All i can say is it doesnt matter WHAT book you or other people use because they all basically teach you the same thing. My advice to you would be to do practice papers from edexcel as MUCH as you can - they are the key really because they can only ask you a question in so many different ways :/ .

    Heres some links i found very useful :

    http://www.examsolutions.co.uk/

    http://www.freeexampapers.com/Dndex.php?d=QSBMZXZlbA==

    my maths can be useful too.....if your school has subscribed to it ..

    good luck :woo:

    C1 is very easy. Don't worry about it.
    Most question are straighforward though sequences' questions might be more tricky.
    I used Edexcel's book ( ISBN 978-0-435519-101) and got a 100.

    Good luck.

    Rarely touched a textbook myself....
    But what I did was , do all the solomon papers and edexcel pastpapers..... ( that way you can have done all the possible types of questions ) adn learn all the formulas except sum to product ones....

    Got a 100 in C1 and a 99 in C2
    I probably forgot a +C in the c2 paper (integration)
