I don't have all that much experience with the books you suggested but they were published in 2001, and maths was restructured in 2002. I personally believe it would be easier for you to find a more up-to-date revision guide, as well as trying to find the most current textbook for the exam board you'll be doing.

There are so many applied (option) modules (with OCR MEI there are 14 in total), that it'd be impractical to have them in one book. Mechanics and Statistics are the most common modules, but Decision is considered much easier and less "maths-y" than normal. If you're doing AS Maths and AS Further, you'll need to take three applied modules. You can choose to go with M1/S1/D1, or you can take a different combination such as M1/M2/S1 or S1/S2/S3 or D1/D2/S1, depending on what school you're attending.

Haven't read those but I just want to say that I've read the OCR books for C1-4 (there is one book for 1 and 2 and another one for 3 and 4) and really liked them. I've also read a pure maths book from the 90s by the Cambridge press but I can't remember the author.

Didn't read anything for FM (good luck if you retain enough enthusiasm for that) but you should still be able to get an A* just by studying more or less.

What do you think of the official OCR MEI textbooks?

I've read those ones which are not MEI I guess. I did Edexcel anyway but those books are really good at explaining concepts, not just preparing you to exams.
