Do you know where I can locate the reading list for first year maths? I'm to start university this year, hopefully at Imperial and I just wanted to have some background knowledge about topics such as Analysis before I head off to university. What can you recommend?

there is a 'set' text by Martin Liebeck - a concise introduction to pure mathematics or something like that which one course is heavily based on so well worth buying.

otherwise drop in to your local uni library and they will have plenty of undergrad level books on analysis, graph theory, etc.

Wikipedia is also a good way to find out about a topic.

generally the lecturers will teach from scratch (assume you nothing) and will recommend some books for you in the 1st lecture of that course. In the first year of Maths its a waste of money buying textbooks when you can just borrow them from the library!
