    I used Bostock and Chandler's books (Core maths -the old one-, Further Pure Maths and Mechanics & Probablity) to do pretty much all of FM.

    They're very well written with lots of examples and questions.

    Bostock and Chandler are good only if you're doing FP1-3 (because there's only a few things on FP1). For FP1 I would suggest sticking to Edexcel textbook, and using online resources such as Physics and Maths tutor website; as well as ExamSolutions.

    The old core maths one has all of FP1.
