    The heinemann books are good and they teach you properly, they aren't like the stupid maths Letts/alternative revision guides which try to gloss over the subject in the minimum amount of time.
    The heinemann books have lots of examples and questions so by the time you've finished with them you really can throw numbers and ideas around and get the answer by any method you like sometimes.

    im using the heineman maths books, but then they're specifically designed for edexcel, so it depends what board you're doing.

    Why do you have to learn F.M "pronto" - are you applying to Oxford this october, or have you already got a place for maths/physics/engineering. I've got an offer to study Physics this oct at oxford and haven't done any F.Maths. Currently I'm looking at key topics in P4 and hopefully next week will start looking at P5. If you're in the same situation as me, then I recommend covering the more vital topics for your course and making sure you have good examples written down. There isn't the time to do EVERY question on all these topics, so pick selectively. I'm just trying to make sure I know the methods to apply, as when I get there I'm sure I'll have plenty of practise applying them to situations.

    Good Luck
