    Would using the Edexcel C1 book be good even though I'm on the OCR board ? Math's cant vary too much between specifications and I've heard this book is good from my friends .

    Anyone use this book before ?

    I've used this book as I'm doing Edexcel C1 now. It's really good. However, I'm not sure about whether or not you should use this book. I would recommend that IF if still decide to use it, you should certinaly be constantly checking with your specification and syllabus and make sure you are learning the relevant material. There is indeed no crime in using a book from another syllabus, as long as you check against your syllabus.
    The CGP AS Level revision guide is good too. It's got all the different exam boards.

    That textbook wouldn't be sufficient because the specs are different (e.g. Edexcel has summations in C1 but they're in C2 on OCR, and Edexcel has circle geometry in C2 when it's in C1 on OCR), so you'd be lacking some information and learning some stuff that you don't need for the exam.

    If you're doing OCR, get an OCR textbook. This one is very good in my experience (as is the whole series).

    Thanks, Yeah I have that OCR book as well :yep:

    I'll use the Edexcel one for the bits that come up in the OCR Book, as it's better at the examples it provides.
