The syllabus for the module is based on Units 1-9 and Unit 11 of book 2, and the lecture content is largely based on book 4. Book 6 is an update to book 4, and "contains a set of subjects that will be very close most actuaries' hearts, being a text book aimed at covering the CT1 syllabus."
Book 5 contains many exercises, but does not go quite as deep. Book 3 is written from a U.S. perspective, so the terminology is slightly different, but it has some good explanations. Book 1 is written by a professor from a U.S./Canadian  background and is particularly good in making connections to applications.
