For the pure content it's mainly C1/2 with a few differences. Applied content is mainly taken from M1/2 and S1/2.

These two documents are useful:

Are you self-teaching? I highly recommend new style textbooks instead of old modular textbooks.

Assuming you are an international candidate doing EDEXCEL international A level then Maths AS comprises C1, C2 and your choice of S1, D1 or M1 or if you want to do the somewhat harder Pure Maths A level instead you could choose F1.

m1 if you are good in physics and like working out and drawing diagrams to solve questions.S1 if you want to take the easier route.

Good assumption. I need to remember this when reading TSR posts

For a complete A level in maths you need to also do C3 and 4 together with a second applications unit.
I suggest you read the specification to see what unit combinations as possible.
https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-international-advanced-levels/mathematics.html

In my opinion the best books for an independent candidate are this series, 1 book for each unit.
