    I'm in the middle of a gap year from secondary school and college (illness and other problems)

    I want to buy some revision books that'll last me both years of college (AS and A Levels)

    Need them to be for both Maths and Further maths (money isn't an issue atm)

    Please help?

    For GCSE I used CGP and they were fantastic, should I stick with them for College? If so which?

    Btw it's Further Mathematics with mechanics not statistics.

    You don't need revision books for maths, just learn from the textbook and then do a load of past papers.
    Why are you buying them now though? Just wait until September when you will get given the books instead of buying them.

    I said I'm on a year break between secondary school and college so I'd rather read a lot before I start college again in sept.

    Will anyone answer the actual question ?

    Yeah I know what you said, why don't you just find out exactly what modules you'll be doing, the exam board and the text books they use in whatever college you're going.
    There aren't any "further maths revision books", and if you do find any, don't buy them.

    Depends on a board to a certain extent? The Edexcel revision books are great for my Edexcel Maths, they have plenty of exercises, included mixed exercises, review questions, a practice paper and an exam paper, along with all the answers in the back. See if you can just borrow them from the library (check if they have answers in the back, in my library they don't :s) unless you really want to buy them (like I did, they're aesthetically pleasing so..) <3
