I start college on Monday and I was advised to purchase official edexcel books concerned with A Level Mathematics.

I can see that each book has its own module: C1, C2, S1, C3, C4, M1.
But I was wondering - due to A Levels being different this year, are these books considered out of date?

They are from Keith Pledger, Gregg Atwood, Alan Cregg et al. Are these the correct books to purchase?

Also a side question - Do I have the exams right? I know C1,2,3 and 4 must be done but is the S1 for Y12 and M1 for Y13?

Thank you in advance and sorry for my naivety.

The A level maths syllabus has not changed, those books are fine.
C1-4 are compulsory. You will most likely do S1 in Y12 and M1 in Y13 as that's the most common way to do it but you need to confirm with your school as there are many options.

No problem. I recommend you don't buy all six, just get the 3 you need for this year in case you decide to drop maths. If you are strapped for cash then you'll find the books on eBay in decent condition for £5-8 plus postage (you'll also find them there for full price and stupidly for more than full price so watch out and make sure you buy the current 2008 rather than older 2004 editions).

p.s. The examsolutions.com web site will be a great resource as will the m4ths.com site
