(Commenting on book TGAW42, GCSE D&T Graphic Products AQA Exam Practice Workbook (A*-G course)

The questions are okay but there aren't any answers which I don't think is very good. How can I check if I'm doing it right if they don't tell me?! I recommend putting the answers in the back of the book in the future. :)

Gregory John — Maidenhead, United Kingdom — 17 Jun 2018 at 16:54:55

On the AQA Year 2 Biology textbook on page 238 in the top left it reads "the bacteria are given a very short electric shock that's thought to create holes in the cell though which DNA can pass", however it should say "through which DNA can pass"

Anon — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 11 Jun 2018 at 00:49:17

Guestbook Editor: Thanks — we'll add in that missing 'r'!

I can't wait to dig in.

Naveed Hussain — Bolton, United Kingdom — 09 Jun 2018 at 21:01:36

Such a good company this is-Coordination Group Publications! I buy these books to help me with my studies

Sally — Wokking, United Kingdom — 08 Jun 2018 at 20:14:12

I understand that I must pay the £13 for the online editions now- I bought the book of mock exams from my school, and have no way to mark them.

Hazel — Aylesbury, United Kingdom — 08 Jun 2018 at 15:02:38

Guestbook Editor: Sorry for any confusion — if you drop us an email at customerservices@cgpbooks.co.uk, we'll see what we can do to help. Thanks!

This website is really confusing, and terrible, to be honest. It looks like it has been the same since '96 but you do you :))) I cannot find the solutions for the mathsbuster gcse 9-1 mocks, rendering it almost useless :))))

Hazel — aylesbury, United Kingdom — 06 Jun 2018 at 17:46:32

Guestbook Editor: 1996 was a vintage year for websites. But we do have some modernisations in the pipeline — stay tuned.

The answers for the GCSE MathsBuster Mock Exam Papers are included in MathsBuster (the digital product) itself. You can print them off from the 'Mock Exam Papers' menu!

OH DEAR i'm really in the soup now... i don't like horseradish sauce... :S if it is unforgivable what will happen please...

p — Cambridge, United Kingdom — 04 Jun 2018 at 17:32:05

Guestbook Editor: We can't reveal what the punishment is, but we can assure you we'll dish it out with relish.

hate to be negative abt u.... but i saw a student review on the another educational publishers website saying they preferred their revision guides to cgp coz cgp is a bit 'in your face' and cramped.... and i have to agree.... really sorry guys :(:(:(:(:( don't wanna say this but felt i ought to report it... just so u know what to improve.... hope u'll forgive :) i still love your sense of humour (what does that say abt me?!?!?!)

p — Cambridge, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2018 at 19:07:12

Guestbook Editor: No forgiveness necessary — thanks for your feedback! Our books are a bit different, and we think that's why so many people love them... but we realise they won't be for everyone.

We're like the educational publishing equivalent of horseradish sauce (except that not liking horseradish sauce really is unforgivable).

Shocking that these books are not available for Visually impaired kids, assumption is that all VI kids can read a PDF, which is not the case.

CJ — Northampton, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2018 at 12:23:04

Guestbook Editor: We're sorry that we're not able to offer ready-made CGP books for visually impaired students. However, we can supply books in a digital format so that you can print them at a size and colour scheme that suits your individual needs. Just drop us an email or call 0800 1712 712 if you'd like more information.

You would be crazy not to buy these books! Definitely the revision guides to go for if you want to achieve the highest grades possible

Onabill Choudhury — Scunthorpe, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2018 at 02:07:51

it is really helpful. I hope I pass my science exam with your books. pray for me that I will do good in my exams. thank you very much

bb — ff, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2018 at 20:19:17

Guestbook Editor: Best of luck!

Honestly these books have been life saving - AQA have not been forgiving this year with their exams and literally your workbooks have been amazing too! Praising you from the rooftops!

Also, are you a cat or dog person?

Razzle — London, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2018 at 10:49:28

Guestbook Editor: Has to be cats for me. Aloof, entitled and perpetually absorbed in their own magnificence... we have a lot in common.

Please note: the views and opinions expressed here are those of the Guestbook Editor and do not necessarily reflect those of CGP as whole.

Thank you so much for the (frankly awesome) online version of your A-Level Physics revision guide! My textbook has a pretty terrible one that you can't even search for text in! Even worse, they don't use vectorised text or graphics so you can't even read it properly when you zoom in! It would've been great if you had a revision guide for Computer Science and FP2/FP3 though — my teachers weren't particularly brilliant... (And I'd know if I used the term 'vectorised' properly :D.)

Ted Striker — Somewhere in Surrey, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2018 at 23:06:04

I've done three science GCSE exams, and so far every single one has contained at least a question from your practice papers

Yus — LND, United Kingdom — 29 May 2018 at 10:38:36

ah... my books are a little 'dog-eared' now... i really feel i've been barking up the wrong tree....

(Commenting on book M1N31D, KS3 Maths Textbook 1: Student Online Edition (with answers)

I am maths teacher and have spent hours of valuable time in collecting the worksheets for students. However, CGP done incredible piece of work which saved my valuable time. I use this book instead looking into mainstream curriculum and then looking for the study material. Excellent Efforts just like CGP done to GCSE science. Please generate the similar work for GCSE maths.

Sharjeel Hussain — Ilford, United Kingdom — 27 May 2018 at 01:50:10

I can say with certainty that the dogs love the books, however in terms of the dogs reading them, I cant really say it is a success.

Bobby — Nottingham, United Kingdom — 26 May 2018 at 18:49:13

Guestbook Editor: Ah, that's where you're wrong. Our books contain special high-frequency writing that only dogs can read.

Hello. And Bye.

MatthewMes — Quatre Bornes, Mauritius — 25 May 2018 at 11:14:39

Honestly, I feel like I would fail without these books; they're an actual lifesaver. Keep it chill dude B).

Abbi — Hailsham, United Kingdom — 24 May 2018 at 22:29:02

sorry... what the heck is books dog
well i'm loving the books cat!!!

x — x, United Kingdom — 24 May 2018 at 15:57:28

Guestbook Editor: Great to hear you're loving the books... but don't call me Cat.

So far so good, loving the books dog!

Bobby — Nottingham, United Kingdom — 24 May 2018 at 10:04:47

Guestbook Editor: Everyone loves the Books Dog. We've never met a spaniel with such a nuanced appreciation of The Mill on the Floss.

(Commenting on book MP6Q22, New Curriculum Practise & Learn: Maths for Ages 10-11

These books would be excellent for my low ability Year 8 students however I wouldn't be able to give them to them to use as they have ages on the front cover! Such a shame.

Natalie Woodward — Swindon, United Kingdom — 21 May 2018 at 16:53:44

I feel so helped whenever i am reading your books mainly the Anthologies that were published but do you settle any shop here in Malawi where i can get some other essential books ?

Mr Clarion — Blantyre, Malawi — 21 May 2018 at 04:14:59

Guestbook Editor: Hello — glad to hear you're finding our books helpful.

You'll find a list of CGP distributors in Malawi on our overseas booksellers page.


V — London, United Kingdom — 20 May 2018 at 15:41:09

Guestbook Editor: SO WE DID. Sorry.

Fantastic books as always. As a private tutor I teach a wide range of subjects and levels. All my kids love your books; the easy way they are laid out, the cartoons and fun comments and the comprehensive explanations and examples. Just one question, are you planning to do an "Of Mice and Men" workbook? I have 3 students who are taking it next year and I can't find anything that compares to CGP. Well done and thank you to one and all. JoJo

JoJo Williams — Littlehampton, United Kingdom — 18 May 2018 at 16:58:17

Guestbook Editor: Excellent news, thanks.

It's unlikely we'll be making a Workbook for 'Of Mice and Men', unfortunately. In the latest English GCSEs, the set texts have to be by British authors, so Steinbeck isn't taught much these days.

These study guides are very popular with my students for GCSE Literature. I was excited to see the new guides but disappointed that the Shakespeare we are studying is not one of them. Are there any plans to produce a version on 'Julius Caesar'?

Mrs Yates — New Alresford, United Kingdom — 17 May 2018 at 10:02:51

Guestbook Editor: It's great to hear your students are finding our GCSE English Literature books helpful. We're always keen to expand our selection of Shakespeare Text Guides and Complete Plays, but Julius Caesar hasn't made it on to the list yet, we're afraid.

I am currently studying my GCSEs and i am loving your books they are really helping and the funny comments in the book really make the revising light up. Hope you reply :-)

Ryan — Rugeley, United Kingdom — 16 May 2018 at 11:07:06

Guestbook Editor: Great news — good luck with the exams. Hopefully you weren't expecting any funny comments on the CGP Guestbook, which is a very serious forum for learned discussion.

Hi, is there a way to download the online editions of your books as pdfs? It would be very useful!

Worriedstudent — London , United Kingdom — 15 May 2018 at 19:37:35

Guestbook Editor: Our Online Editions can only be viewed online, we're afraid. We'd have to think up a different name for them if they were downloadable...

(Commenting on book SEHQA41, New GCSE Combined Science: Edexcel Answers (for Exam Practice Workbook) - Higher

Absolute pee takers. Why would you have to buy the answers, not being funny but what is the use of a work book WITHOUT ANY FLIPPING ANSWERS like are you taking the mick !?!?!

AngryCustomer — K, United Kingdom — 15 May 2018 at 09:58:47

Guestbook Editor: No mick-taking intended. Our Workbooks are widely used in schools, and teachers often prefer to keep the answers separate when they're setting work to students.

Whenever we make a new Workbook, we think carefully about whether to include answers or print them separately — but there are always pros and cons either way. We're sorry we haven't got it right for you with this one.

(Commenting on book MXFP43, New GCSE Maths Edexcel Practice Papers: Foundation - for the Grade 9-1 Course

I do hope that these two sets of sample past papers are not using questions repeated from the workbook or exam practice book. I shall let you know :O)

Anthony Skilton — Eastbourne, United Kingdom — 14 May 2018 at 09:08:04

Will you by any chance make GCSE Economics books?

James — Tooting, United Kingdom — 13 May 2018 at 13:21:53

Guestbook Editor: Possibly... it depends on the rate of interest.

Your little comments on the back of your books brighten our days!!! Thank you!

Bridget — Grantham, United Kingdom — 09 May 2018 at 19:38:18

On the second section of p.35 of the Chemistry AQA GCSE revision guide, it says there are electrostatic forces between the metal atoms and the delocalised sea of electrons but it should say metal 'ions' (as it does in the first section of the page).

Also, on p.44, ‘mol’ is missing from zinc’s calculation.

V — London, United Kingdom — 09 May 2018 at 11:15:26

Guestbook Editor: Hello, and thanks for your comments.

Metal atoms vs. metal ions is a tricky issue at GCSE — AQA will give you the marks for using either term. But it is a bit confusing that we've used both terms on the same page, so we'll have a think about making that consistent.

You're dead right about the missing mol on p44. We'll get that added in!

I haven't bought any of the books, but I can already hear that they help out, especially when the teacher doesn't really help out, which is my case. The school year is almost over, but it probably will help out next year. Thanks again, even if I haven't tried it out yet.

Jacob — Space, United States of America — 08 May 2018 at 20:12:19

Guestbook Editor: You're welcome. And happy #TeacherAppreciationDay!

For A levels, I would like to study English Literature, Spanish, Classics and art history/film studies. Will you be publishing any books to support those subjects?
Please please
Also will you make some Italian revision guides?

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 08 May 2018 at 18:50:38

Guestbook Editor: Your requests have been noted. We're afraid we can't reveal any more at this stage...

Mac and cheese with basil and some nicely roasted, minced beef. Perfection. Eating twice the suggested calorie intake while studying from CGP books, they are amazing.

Emese — Tonbridge, United Kingdom — 07 May 2018 at 21:02:49

Guestbook Editor: Well, you have to keep your strength up during revision season. Enjoy.

Love the CGP GCSE books. Could you please make a study guide for Journey's End and maybe some Latin books?

Salihah — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 07 May 2018 at 11:46:22

Hello — I love the idea of the free online editions however, I wish I could download them as a PDF so that I could print of certain pages easily. I don't have a smart device so reading them on a PC with the current controls is tedious.

Daniel — Suffolk, United Kingdom — 06 May 2018 at 18:21:32

Just bought mathsbuster, very good.

I vouch it!
