    Hi all. I have heard that the transition from Alevel to university maths has been difficult for many people and I'm thinking about buying a few books to read over the summer! On the Warwick webpage it recommends these three books:

    A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics by M. Liebeck (CRC Press, 2010; ISBN: 1439835985).

    Guide to Analysis by M. Hart (Macmillan 2001; ISBN: 0333794494).

    Algebra and Geometry by A.F. Beardon (Cambridge 2005; ISBN 0521890497).

    Is it necessary to get all three or just one or two? Also if any current maths students have some other good recommendations please let me know!

    I'd get zero of them. If you want to get a good start, looking at this would be a decent idea.
