    Not much point in waiting. If you need/want it now, then buy it.

    Buy them now, they probably won't release any new or better ones and at least the ones you buy now would have been used by the current year 12s (only maths and English tho) so you know that they work. Also tbh you don't really need revision guides in year 10 (I didn't anyways😝) but if you're gonna get them...get them now😊

    Buy them now. They probably won’t release new ones for a few years now as they’ve just brought out the new 9-1 ones. So you’re fine

    I doubt it'll be different. There might be the odd spelling mistake here and there which they'll correct at the next print, but no topic changes etc. unless the exam board (highly unlikely) adds or removes a certain topic.

    Buy them now. Highly unlikely there will be any better ones next year.

    Also, revision guides are not the be-all and end-all. They will not automatically get you top grades. They should be used in conjunction with other forms of revision such as past-papers and note-condensing. Just reading a guide is unlikely to help you, no matter how good the book is.

    Buy them now. If they release new ones, the content will still be the same. You won't be disadvantaged.
