I took Mathematics to GCSE level at school but no further than that. I would now like to move to A Level but as an adult the local college charges a hefty sum (£350 for AS Level) and I would like to try and study it alone. |

My favourite A-level textbook is "Core Maths for A-Level" by Bostock and Chandler. It's aimed at students with only an Intermediate GCSE in maths and recaps a lot of algebra, so it's a good option if you might be a bit rusty. It covers the whole core curriculum, from basic algebra and geometry right the way through to calculus. There are lots of graded exercises, with a full answer key at the back in most editions. |

What you read will depend slightly on what you want to do with the maths - assuming you intend at some point to go beyond A-level, think what you want to use maths for. There are loads of "Maths for..." type books for physicists, engineers, chemists, biologists and probably other fields, which will emphasise certain parts which are more important in that field. |

If you want A levels to get into uni, you could do an Access to HE course at college instead. It's whats getting me in uni to do nursing in Sept. I got fuck all decent GCSE's. |
