The Heinemann P1 Revision guide is useful.

ISBN 0435511106

I find the way that these revision guides reverse the content order of the standard text is good for revision. Essential memorising first, THEN worked examples, exercises, test yourself... New examples and exercises too - not just repeats of the standard text examples.

Fairly cheap, worth having.

The Heinemann textbook and revision book, along with past papers are the way to go.
I'm extremely skeptical as to the use of maths revision books. Only bother using them if they have an abundance of questions (with answers) for you to do.

revision books leave out sooooooo much!! You should have a textbook, possibly two for each module. If my P1 book is not very good for explaining something then i'll browse at the AQA or OCR one.

Exam papers are only good with GOOD explained mark schemes, that way you can work through the answer...........

Theyre written for MEI maths, run by OCR, but the Hodder and Stoughton books are quite good, tho they lack many exam standard exercises for the higher modules, but the P1 1 is good.

Surely that takes out the whole thinking and problem solving process? If you can't find the answer you're not tempted to carry on thinking, you'll just look at the solution.

Arguably yes, but its still good if you've spent hours learning something and still can't get the correct answer.
