4. REVISE Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics Higher and Foundation Revision Guide

This maths book is written by an independent author and mathematician, Harry Smith. The book is really effective as a GCSE maths revision guide and it also has online learning materials which are good maths resources for teachers. The entire GCSE maths higher course is covered for the Edexcel board and all areas from algebra to vectors are covered with good explanations. A minor criticism is that this maths book doesn’t contain more examples of level 8-9 question types that do appear in the past papers so for this reason although the book does say it is for 9-1 we do.
