Can u use the 2004 specification book for the 2010 exams? (edexcel) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Yeah, my friend just bought this M1 and M2 Heinemann series books and realized that they are for 2004 (m1) and 2000 (m2) specification. But when he tried to return them to the owner, she was like its ok and she had used the same. The mechanics hasnt changed much. My friend wants an A in maths and doesnt know whether its ok to use these books or get the latest series. Any help will be much appreciated.

    The books may cover some things that are not covered in the current sylabus and vice versa although I would expect they would still cover the essentials. If I were him though I would get the upto date books but that's just me :girl:

    Generally the Maths syllabus doesn't change that much. To be on the safe side, however, I suggest that your friend buys the latest book. Or he/she could simply ask the teacher.


    Though if your friend can get access to the newer one, just to see if there are any changes, that'd be good, but otherwise, there shouldn't be a problem!
