    Neither, but then again I did AQA and not Edexcel.

    Option 2 (2) and option 3.

    I.e. the new and old FP1 books (the P4 book) and the old D1 book.

    I used option 2 for FP1 I found that everything is spelt out to you and there are lots of questions, although the questions in the review exercises are taken from older sylabusses. The exam was about as hard as C2.

    option 3 is the old syllabus, option 2 is the new. I used the books in option 3.

    Option 3. I was taking the old syllabus ones, however.

    EDIT: actually, I tell a lie, I did the new D1, but it's just the old one with a couple of bits taken out, so the old book was perfectly fine.

    I used the second one for FP1, it was pretty good, lots of the examples were similar to the questions in the exam, it was set out well too. I used the old version of that textbook for D1, as my school didn't want to waste money on new ones - it was fairly good, not set out as clearly.
