I would like to improve as a Mathematician and I am currently doing A-Level Mathematics in England. I have come to learn that this book is a fantastic resource for anybody serious about a career in the subject.
In the next two years I shall be completing all 18 modules of the Edexcel syllabus which is made up of 7 'Pure' modules, 4 Statistics modules, 5 Mechanics modules and lastly, 2 Decision modules. I shall also be taking part in the STEP exams, used by Cambridge and Warwick to give offers to applicants.
I would like to know what level of knowledge is required of me as a reader and mathematician to be able to make the most of this book. The author states that the book is aimed at 'college-level' novices which would mean first year university students if I am correct.
So, for me, would this mean A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics would be enough to be able to start reading this book efficiently? I look forward to your replies.

I recommend to study this good book to complement your skills: Mathematical Circles: Russian Experience (Mathematical World, Vol. 7) by Dmitri Fomin Sergey Genkin, Ilia V and Itenberg.
