Physicsandmathstutor.com, Jack brown on youtube... Textbooks...

So you'll do C1, C2, FP1 - and I'd reccomend D1, S1, M1.

Then for A2 - C3, C4, FP2, FP3, S2, S3, D2 - extra modules as FP2 and FP3 are pretty hard... S2, etc are easy and so is D2 - ish.

I don't understand the modules (the lettering system). could you please expand on that?

so C1, C2,- Maths As. and D1, S1, M1. are optional modules.

FP1 is further maths AS

and

C3, C4, Maths A2 and S2, S3, D2. are optional modules.

FP2, FP3, are Further Maths A2.

Am I right?

So for AS:

You do C1 and C2 For Core maths.

Then for FM you do FP1.

Those are the "pure" modules - Pure core 1, Further Pure 1.

Then you do Applied modules Eg. Statistics or mechanics. - You do 1 for As maths Eg. Mechanics and 1 for FM but you can do more for FM, for example... Although you could choose to do FP2, FP3, FP4 instead of D1 and S1 - Leaving M1 for your core maths....

The best exams (Applied) - Go towards core maths first, then FM... Eg. If you get 100 ums in stats and 50 in mechanics, stats would go with core maths as you cannot do better in FM than in core maths.... To an extent.

physicsandmathstutor is ideal for resources, almost every paper (all exam boards, IYGB, Edexcel text books etc) with a lot of worked example. For the applied modules, pick the ones that best complement your other subjects (eg mechanics for physics, stats for biology/geography)

examsolutions.com

im not joking. It's not a website with the answers to exams, it's a website full of video tutorials on ALL exam boards i believe. only thing it doesnt cover is decision 1 and 2 (D1/2) but for that i recommend hegartymaths for D1.

D2 ngl is harder to learn as there is literaly one learning tool other than the textbook and that's a set of revision videos that miss out a couple of things. helps nonetheless though, its called "FMSP D2 edexcel ____" (insert name of topic).
trust me though, D2 is still easy, i teach myself further maths the only thing i had to seek help for that wasnt covered in the only revision tool was the last chapter which is notoriously bloody hard!
