    So I've just started a-level maths this year, and although the textbook is quite good, I would like to buy my own revision guide (as I would like something more detailed and concise).
    Thank you! :-)

    The only revision guide I've seen so far is the CGP one.
    Edexcel have said they will publish theirs before Christmas.

    CGP one? I've never seen it. Our school gives the blue Pure Mathematics Year 1/AS ones.

    Is this it?

    while that is a great resource to revise from, that's a text book rather than a concise revision guide that the OP is requesting

    That book is very very good... it’s published by the exam board themselves and has everything you need in it

    Yeah that's the one. You're right, are there any revision guides though?

    I agree.
    But it's not what the OP asked for

    Revision guides for maths are pointless, hence why very few are published. If you don't understand a topic, you're better off watching a khanacademy video or doing some research into the topic and when you understand it do some practice with the textbooks.

    Thank you for that. I may just buy it. I thought that was for the old specification?

    Oh right. I knew Edexcel releases theirs quite late.

    I'd tend to agree at A level but some people find them helpful.
