    Anyone recommend some revision guides from personal experience?
    I've seen a couple of different ones, just want to know your opinions.

    It is best to get many different books, all will give you some useful information that maybe another book doesnt.

    But my favourite book was
    "introducing pure mathematics by Robert Smedley & Garry Wiseman"

    there are ones for mechanics and statistics and Further maths aswell:

    pure mathematics, http://www.play.com/Books/Books/4-/3...s/Product.html

    mechanics
    http://www.play.com/Books/Books/4-/3...searchsource=0

    and statistics
    http://www.play.com/Books/Books/4-/1...s/Product.html

    Further maths
    http://www.play.com/Books/Books/4-/2...s/Product.html

    they are quite expensive, but you can get them cheaper if you look around a bit or buy them second hand.

    For Decision,
    i think the official book from ocr mei is crap, but you can judge that for yourself...
    What helped me most was this file,

    http://rapidshare.com/files/101784853/D1.zip

    This wont get you through it all, but its a good aid!


    and i think youll just have to get the official book for Numerical Methods, i didnt do that module so im not sure on that one

    Hope this helps!
    and good luck with the alevels guys

    To be honoust, having done C1,C2,S1,D1,NM and FP1 using only the MEI books I think the books are amazing! They really go through everything you need to know, and obviously dont forget to do many, many past papers!

    I still regularly use the older MEI books (P1-6, M1-6, S1-6) for refreshing myself of A level maths, well worth buying your own set if you borrow them from school.
