    fitz sucks, we use it. Use cambridge and HSC/trial papers.

    EDIT: Forgot about Coroneos, quite an old book but a gem for those harder questions.

    the only problem about coroneos is that it's really hard to read because it's so old and the formatting is all over the place.

    But it's missing some stuff for Conics (and has some stuff in it that was cut out in the 1989 syllabus amendment) and it doesn't cover graphs and harder 3U.
