    Hello there

    I am a college student consdring to take some Igcse's. I will be home schooling my self since we dont have any britsh schools around.
    At first I decided to join online colleges but most reveiws were not that good plus the courses were kind of expensive. My other plan was to buy all the books and study by myself. Now i dont know which book should I buy amazon is full of Igcse and gcse text book.

    Not sure that anyone can help when you don't say what subjects
    It would also be useful to state which examiner you will be using

    Although a little expensive, these are the books I use with igcse maths students and would recommend them for clear explanations and plenty of practice exercises. However, if you already know the maths and you are just preparing/revising for the exam, then any simple revision guide to accompany your work with past papers would be adequate.

    No I have not seen that book, I only work with students studying for the Edexcel qualification not Cambridge. It's confusing enough to work out what the differences are between examiners. For home schoolers I think it's best to get a book that is matched exactly to the exam syllabus.
