    I wouldn't buy a text book, I would however recommend a revision guide and exam practice workbook.
    CGP do a decent series of books but I prefer these:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Revise-Edexcel-Mathematics-Revision-Workbook/dp/1292210885/ref=pd_bxgy_14_img_2?_encoding=U TF8

    He right I'm doing GCSE math right now too if you want I can tell you the books I'm using. Just one question is your GCSE gonna be marked on the new scheme 1-9 or the old one? I'm guessing it's the new one.
