    I prepared for OCR A Level maths with the Edexcel books because they are very good and helpful and used the OCR revision books when I was preparing for the exams, both are fairly similar, I think the main differences are in the optional modules. Don't worry about how the questions are asked until you start doing past papers just focus on understanding the material first.

    The spec there isn't much difference, maybe one or two small things, the main difference is that you might learn about 5 topics in Edexcel C1 and 4 of those topics are in OCR C1 and the other is in OCR C2 and vice versa. Questions i'm not too sure but it doesn't really matter as long as you revise the correct past papers
