    Which one do you prefer more the edexcel endorsed.. or cgp?

    I personally have only the edexcel endorsed but feel like CGP has better wording within?

    I have the CGP revision guide for Edexcel mathematics. Personally, I've never used it and I've been using past papers and examsolutions.net to revise, which is very effective!

    The CGP book has C1, C2, S1, M1 and D1:

    You don't really need a "revision guide" for the core maths modules. It's all about understanding and being able to apply concepts to different problems and you can't "learn" that from a revision guide so I wouldn't recommend it. Using the edexcel books for their exercises and review exercises will really help as they can be slightly harder than some actual papers and their examples can be used for revision. Other than that, by exam time you will just be doing past papers for your revision and practice so I'd say buying a CGP revision guide would just be a waste of money and you wouldn't get much use out of it.
    As mentioned above, exam solutions is a fantastic website which can really help your understanding of any particular area of C1 and C2 - it has videos explaining every topic and sub topic as well as explanations of questions from nearly all past papers. You could use this website to basically teach yourself maths. It's really good and I used it a lot last year and I achieved an A.
