Personally I used CGP because I've used them before and found them really useful I wouldn't recommend the Edexcel guide because there aren't as many colours, however as it is specific to the exam board if you aren't a visual learner then it might be worth getting. Have a look through friend's ones? The layout of some of the things is different in the Edexcel one - for example, comparisons are in tables which my friend found really helpful (however if you're making your own notes from the book it doesn't matter). My friend owns both the Edexcel version and CGP and prefers the CGP one overall as she is used to the layout and it lays it all out well, however for some stuff (like the comparion thing) its better. Oh and remember to get an exam board specific CGP guide instead of the one for all boards, as that was what I got (last one on the shelf in a mad panic 8 days before my Unit 1 January exam (got a D, do more than 8 days worth)). Hope that's helped

I thought that the revision guide and the big text book specifically made for the snab course were the best. The CGP one would often go into way too much detail about things. I didn't actually use the CGP and I got 100% ums on both AS exams.

I think the most important thing to focus on is past papers.

Which book do you find the most helpful?
