Nice book

A new Yr6 teacher arrived at my daughters' school who made us aware of CGP Books. Since taking advice from him and purchasing the required books for her SATS, she and her class were so prepared, they all got through with excellent results. Thank you so much CGP!!!

Richard — Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — 11 Oct 2017 at 08:12:54

Love the CGP books, really help with teaching concepts

Ehsan — newcastle under lyme, United Kingdom — 10 Oct 2017 at 17:31:18

Just what is needed to support students {and teachers} with excellent materials and resources for English G.C.S.E. Very well structured with clear, concise instructions.

rosie — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 10 Oct 2017 at 13:50:33

Very impressed with new Key Stage 2 maths textbooks, easy to use and differentiated; also very reasonably priced at £5. Thanks.

Maths Coordinator — Weston-super-Mare, United Kingdom — 09 Oct 2017 at 18:41:44

Fabulous, can't fault CGP!
Used them for last 17 years,
Thank you CGP
One question: What does CGP stand for?

Akram Ansari — UXBRIDGE, United Kingdom — 08 Oct 2017 at 19:43:47

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much. CGP stands for 'Computer-Generated Personalities', since the entire company is staffed by androids.

Hi hello. when are you making the 9-1 edexcel gcse book for science
thanks very much

Penelope — idontknow, Azerbaijan — 08 Oct 2017 at 13:03:45

Guestbook Editor: Hi! We've already made lots of books for Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Science — the Revision Guides, Exam Practice Workbooks and Student Books are out now, with brand new Complete Revision & Practice Guides due to arrive in November.

We also have new Revision Guides and Exam Practice Workbooks for Edexcel 9-1 International GCSE Science, so there's something for Edexcel Scientists of all persuasions.

I would like to improve my English skill

Mohd Nasran — Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — 08 Oct 2017 at 06:22:32

page 2 of math igcse 9-1 revision guide.The answer for question 2 at the bottom of the page for BODMAS
I get the answer 2 ...but the answer is -4??

Aaron — London, United Kingdom — 07 Oct 2017 at 15:38:07

Guestbook Editor: I've dusted off my maths skills and had a go at this one... and I get d = -4, as it says in the book.

(The numerator works out as 16, and the denominator as -4, so d = 16 ÷ (-4) = -4. Some awkward minus signs in there.)

I've been using CGP books since 2001. I love the study books for guiding my students. They are written in a fun and easy format - making learning a a joy. The workbooks are so useful to polish off skills and to recap on learning objectives.. Thank you for my 11+ 10min maths tests sample book. Oh..Just in case you're interested, I am having chilli-con-carne for tea ....xoxo

Shindo Scarrott — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 07 Oct 2017 at 15:09:52

Guestbook Editor: We're always interested in what people are having for tea. Can't go wrong with chilli con carne. (Also good to hear you've had sixteen years of joy from CGP books.)

Thank you guys i have bought books for all of my GCSE subject accept from drama i would love for you guys to create one it would benefit me and many others - you guys know how tough it can be, also nobody does drama revision guides help please

alfie yates — BURNLEY, United Kingdom — 07 Oct 2017 at 14:52:03

Love these books - particularly the science revision guides. Invaluable in helping my pupils with their Common Entrance revision! Always get great service from CGP too. Thank you!

(Commenting on book HER41, New GCSE History Edexcel Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Course

What topics does this book cover? I'm trying to find things covering medicine through time, the cold war and nazi germany - does this book cover any of these?

Mee — London, United Kingdom — 04 Oct 2017 at 20:28:44

Guestbook Editor: Our Edexcel GCSE History Revision Guide covers six topics, including...

Medicine in Britain, c. 1250-present
Superpower Relations and the Cold War, 1941-1991
Weimar and Nazi Germany, 1918-39

You can see the full list of contents by going to the book's info page (HER41) and clicking on 'Take a look' at the bottom.

will there be a year 2 only revision guide?

Joyce Weetman — Uttoxeter, United Kingdom — 04 Oct 2017 at 08:25:49

Guestbook Editor: Probably not for Complete Revision & Practice guides, sorry — but our new A-Level Maths Student Books are split up into Years 1 and 2 if that's any help.

Books are brilliant!! Helped my son to score really good marks on his SATs tests.

(Commenting on book HER41, New GCSE History Edexcel Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Course

My school cover Edexcel History 9-1, but study the Anglo-Saxons and Normans, so would welcome a version that covers this rather than Elizabethan times. Is there a possibility of CGP covering this?

Garry Clarkson — Mexborough, United Kingdom — 03 Oct 2017 at 14:19:33

Guestbook Editor: It's fairly unlikely, I'm afraid... we couldn't cover every possible topic in our GCSE History books, so we stuck with the ones that are taught in the largest number of schools. We're always coming up with new books, though, so never say never.

A friend recommended CGP books for my daughter's KS1 SATS. Just purchased my first set of books to try out. Reviews so far are rather very encouraging.
Will let you know how things go soon.

Great book but where is the answers for summary questions?

A K — Bo'ton, United Kingdom — 29 Sep 2017 at 21:08:15

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! The Revision Summary questions are there to test how much you've remembered from the section you've just revised, so you'll find the answers by flicking back through the book.

(Commenting on book ETA43, Grade 9-1 GCSE English Text Guide - Animal Farm

Why did you change the cover on the front of animal farm? I liked the old one better.
I see that none of your other text guides have changed picture... does that mean all the content is new too?!

Parker — Torquay, United Kingdom — 29 Sep 2017 at 12:00:03

Guestbook Editor: I think we just fancied a change with this cover — sorry if you preferred the old 'Windmill' version. If I remember rightly, we changed the Animal Farm cover when we updated the book for the new Grade 9-1 GCSE English courses back in 2015, so the older version probably does have slightly different content.

(We updated the content of all our other GCSE Text Guides around the same time, but mostly kept the same images on the covers.)

Thanks for the level of your product. using the catalogue for ordering books for my kids was so helpful however have a suggestion to add hyperlink in catalogue itself for easy adding of the selected books in the cart especially for order of several books which it takes time
Another suggestion, noticed that cart will be emptied automatically when leaving the website. Is it possible to save selected books under the cart so can select the needed on different sessions. Thanks

Mo Fouad — Doha, Qatar — 22 Sep 2017 at 20:19:58

Guestbook Editor: Hi — thanks for your feedback. We're working on some improvements to the CGP website to make shopping a smoother experience, so we'll definitely take your suggestions on board. Great to hear you're finding the books useful!

I think that these books are very helpful now i am studying for my GCSEs

megan — cheshire, United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2017 at 18:35:04

These amazing books are really helping with my GCSE revision and will continue to help me throughout the rest of year 10 and 11! Thank you for creating these as they are so helpful! Only one suggestion though, combine the exam practice papers and answers into one book.

Hannah Jackson — Mansfield, United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2017 at 17:57:54

I absoloutly love your revision books, which are clear and easy to read, colourful and "dangerously close to being funny". They have definitely helped prepare my daughters for their GCSEs, and they enjoy reading the little jokes included throughout the pages! A big WOW and thank you!

Khadija Collector — Bradford, United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2017 at 13:02:03

There is a mistake on page 13 in the A-level year 2 chemistry revision guide OCR A. It says that A=e-24 when A=e24. Basically there should not be a minus.

victoria beglin — calvert, United Kingdom — 19 Sep 2017 at 20:42:15

Guestbook Editor: Yes, you're right — we've made a note to correct that. Thanks!

My lovely husband is cooking chicken and mixed peppers curry. Yum. you should be able to smell it soon.

MTH — Redditch, United Kingdom — 18 Sep 2017 at 17:21:12

Guestbook Editor: Mmm, that does smell good. Enjoy!

Day 704: still no CGP A-Level Computer Science guide. Both supplies and hope are running low.

Devin — Barren Wasteland, United Kingdom — 17 Sep 2017 at 17:57:20

Guestbook Editor: Sounds as if the situation's getting desperate. Unfortunately, we don't yet have an A-Level Computer Science book ready to come to your rescue. Might be time to consider eating your shoes.

WOW. These books are brilliant. They've helped me for over 10 years, from my very first books for KS1 subjects and the Y2 Sats, to KS2 subjects and Y6 Sats, the KS3, then GCSEs and finally A-Levels. Thank you CGP.

Solji — London, United Kingdom — 17 Sep 2017 at 11:51:46

Guestbook Editor: You're welcome. That's what we do.

Will u be making an Edexcel Biology B A Level CGP?

John — Jersey, Ukraine — 16 Sep 2017 at 18:52:01

Guestbook Editor: Not as far I know, sorry. Not many people study the Edexcel B course, so you're part of an exclusive club.

(Commenting on book SMR41, Essential Maths Skills for Secondary Science (KS3 and A*-G GCSE)

We purchase this book each year for all our pupils, do you have an electronic version teachers can use to teach from the front of the classroom?

Semra Kazim — London, United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2017 at 13:53:04

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we don't make a digital version of this one at the moment, I'm afraid. We'll add it to our list of suggestions!

A big thank you to Lucy for all your help on the phone this morning - I have now placed my order for the 'correct' books that my grandson requires.....

Antoinette — Earl Shilton, United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2017 at 13:21:51

I used the gcse maths grade 9-1 course book and the exam practice workbook and found both really helpful - well explained and lots of practice so well worth the money and time spent.

Susan holmes — La comelle, France — 11 Sep 2017 at 17:17:29

I love CGP, but will you be making poetry anthologies for Edexcel? Or a GCSE Chemistry complete revision guide for Edexcel? Please!

Madeline — Cheltenham, United Kingdom — 10 Sep 2017 at 20:20:07

Guestbook Editor: We probably won't be able to help you with an Edexcel Anthology Poetry Guide*, sorry. But we are working on GCSE Science Complete Revision & Practice books for Edexcel — they'll be out before the end of the year!

* Although we might well have one for the WJEC Eduqas Anthology soon, if that's of interest to any other Guestbook readers.

rekha — ROME, Italy — 09 Sep 2017 at 20:25:44

I'm in year 11 and I've already got loads of your books. They all seem to cover the syllabus well, apart from History. I understand that there are multiple topics to choose from which makes it hard to produce a revision guide for everything but I was wondering if you had any plans to cover Russia 1894-1945 and Power and the People anytime soon. Thanks
PS. I love your books

Hannah — Brentwood, United Kingdom — 09 Sep 2017 at 11:47:34

Guestbook Editor: Hello — as far as I know, we're not planning to expand our GCSE History range at the moment. As you say, it's hard to cover everything in a singe book, so we've tried to include the topics that will be most helpful to the most students. Sorry we can't help you with everything you're studying.

I intend having Quorn based cottage pie for tea. Thanks for asking.

David Aspinall — Macclesfield, United Kingdom — 09 Sep 2017 at 10:15:02

I have used these books for 20 years as a teacher and tutor. They allow me to improvise and teach according to the child`s ability and then the child flies through the questions with confidence. Excellent books.

Carol Whitaker — Guildford, United Kingdom — 05 Sep 2017 at 19:06:22

Dear Coordination Group Publications Limited,

Your books have proved to be most helpful as of recent, for which I must commend your relentless pursuit of textbook excellency.

My question is, how do you create your books from start to end?

The Honorable Harold Colegrave-Montague — Eaton Square, Belgravia, United Kingdom — 04 Sep 2017 at 16:12:30

Guestbook Editor: Well, that's a tricky question, especially since I'm bound by the terms of the Official CGP Secrets Act.

So here's the redacted version: all our books are written by teachers who are experts in their subjects, then checked, trimmed, typeset and sprinkled with jokes by our magnificent in-house editors before being thoroughly proofread and sent off to the printers. And it all happens in the UK.

There's a lot more to it than that, of course, including planning/development, cover design and ritualistic dances. But I might already have said too much...

Please make books for English edexcel igcse. thank you.
