I'm currently studying Maths and Computer Science at A2 in school and self teaching the FP1,FP2,FP3,S2 and D2 modules for a Further Maths A-Level for AQA (I've already done D1). I have near enough finished FP1 but I am only halfway through S2 and finding it difficult to understand some of the concepts from reading a book and it is sapping my motivation. The school has signed me up for some online tutorial lessons which aren't very good in my opinion but the S2 lessons don't start until April anyway which is very late. Does anybody have any advice for self-teaching S2 or any of the FM modules? Also, does anybody know any good resources for the modules as no text books are available for FP2,FP3 and D2?

Im self teaching the AS further maths this year (FP1, D1 and D2). Im currently using the edexcel textbooks for all of the modules and I'm finding D2 really enjoyable the textbook breaks things down into manageable chunks and I'm finding it quite easy to understand so far (textbook link below)

I have used other textbooks in the past and have found the edexcel books to be the best for self teaching

I find that the Edexcel textbooks are easy to learn from. If you're struggling with S2, there are some really good lessons on youtube I would recommend if its particular topics.
