    I want to get a revision guide for Edexcel geography (a level) in unit 1. Yet on Amazon there are two that I'm deciding on. Both have been written by the same authors, but one's a newer edition.

    Has anyone come across both? As I want to get the one which is better, but I can't decide aha. The first one is the 2008 edition, and the latter is the 2011 edition. Thanks

    I have the first one, the "old" edition, though the information is still fantastic. I have the two "old" versions for units one and two, and the new editions for units three and four.

    They're all very useful textbooks, but I also have the CGP Edexcel AS-Level guide to supplement the first two unit books.

    How is your revision going? I'm doing all four units in May and June, so I am pretty much 24/7 Geography right now. Feel free to send me a PM if you want to chat!

    I used the CGP book for my unit 1 revision which was great but I used the unit 3 version of this book when I was doing unit 3 and it was great! It had case studies dotted around and was quite concise and easy to read. There won't really be much difference between the 2 versions except maybe a few updated case studies so either will be fine!

    Thank you, I've bought the newest editions now.
