    CGP are good. I'd recommend the revision guide:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Maths-.../dp/1782943862

    workbook:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-GCSE-Ma...BHSFAV2ZY1TY60

    exam practice book:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Maths-...tice+9-1+maths

    practice papers:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Maths-...ice+papers+9-1

    Also, a revision checklist can be good. Here's one I made with questions and a PDF checklist but MathsGenie is also good for that.

    The content is the same so for revision guides/workbooks a generic 9-1 guide is fine like the CGP books I linked. For exam workbooks and practice papers it's best to choose Edexcel and the bottom two links I gave you are Edexcel specific.

    I'd go for the first and third links I posted. If you have a kindle you may be able to afford 3 books.
