    Hey, long story short - I am selfstudying A level maths and I've noticed that AQA has only two statistics and two mechanics books, while Edexcel has 5 for each of them. Does it mean that those AQA books include all materials, but packed into two books or does it mean that Edexcel students learn more topics?

    Thing is that I've already went through Core 1 - 3 for AQA (these) and I really liked them - but I cannot say the same about Edexcel books. I've seen Core books in a store and they use a bit different approach - would be a lot harder to study from them on my own.

    Thanks.

    I have also self studied C1-4 in AQA, now im doing Edexcel i can say that the type of questions are harder because they are not as specific as AQA. AQA has less questions and the same amount of time, we get on average 7-8 questions that requires alot of time to complete in the exam.
