there's also http://www.mathsnet.net although I think it's designed for Edexcel, but at least it'll probably have the same sort of information on. You could also get the papers of the AQA website.

I doubt you'll find anything specific as the syllabus is being scrubbed as of September this year. The above suggestions for revision are good ones though. Also, class notes might be a good place to start!

I had this problem with AQA P5 last year for my A Level Mathematics & Statistics. I basically relied on the Heinemann textbooks for all my pure modules as our teachers were very poor. The best idea is to get hold of as many past exam papers as you can and use them to revise, as many of the questions have a similar structure each year. Eventually, I decided to concentrate on the modules where I had the books to work so I could compensate for my performance in P5.

I need 1 UMS mark out of 90 on this paper to get an A overall
I'll still revise for it obviously, but I dont have to make it a priority and can concentrate on my French and Physics.

In the end I didn't need any UMS marks at all in P5, but I didn't know that at the time as I hadn't done my P4 and S4 modules.

This isn't a good sign, considering I'll be doing P5 next year. Meh, at least AS is great, with the nice textbooks specifically written for the syllabus!
