Guestbook Archive - March 2000

I have been trying to assist my own child to gain a higher academic mark in his year 6 SATS which he is due to take in the next few weeks. I was advised that your books were a useful starting point, however was somewhat concerned that on page 15 of your Maths Book the information was incorrect. I was taught that to divide a number by 100, it was necessary to move the decimal point two places to the left. Your book advised me that it needed to be moved two places to the right. It is not useful at this crucial point to have the method confused. It is already a stressful and worrying time without having concepts confused. A worried and concerned mother.

Is there a spanish revision book? All of the other books are really good. (My GCSE Higher tier maths workbook didn't come with answers. Was it supposed to?)

Amy Bairstow — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Thankyou your books have really helped me.

Katie Mclaughlin — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I love the CGP books and I recommend them to all fellow learners from around the world. Couldn't have passed my end of year tests without them AND they helped me get an 84 out of 100 in my Maths test. You thinking of doing a German and Spanish revision guide in the not too near future? Maybe I shouldn't push my luck that the prices are already amazingly low for each guide. Thanks for helping me and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Kaysha

Excellent help for GCSE....Do you think you can do the same for A-Level?????!!!!!

Rhea — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I like your Maths books and am trying to persuade my head to let me have some. I am particularly interested in KS3 levels 3-6.

David Ross — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Nick — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I was looking for homework books for English and Science but could not find any. Are you going to publish them soon ?

Helen Dimmick — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Great Books. Have helped a lot for GCSEs. Shame about the jokes on every page though! I need one for Spanish and also History: Arab-Israeli Dispute & Apartheid in South Africa. Soon! Please!

Joe Manjaly — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

This Site Is Good And Gives Me Good Information On The Books I Am Considering To Buy. I Also Think It's Fun And Friendly.

Christopher Teale — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Elizabeth Eatock — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I HAVE JUST GOT SOME OF YOUR BOOKS FROM MY SCHOOL AND I THINK THEY ARE VERY GOOD TO HELP FOR MY SILLY ASSESMENT TEST BYE!

chris rush — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I like your books and I think they are very good so can you send me a book of answers for £2.oo thankyou

james tennyson — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Nice page. Your books are better though!

David Parry — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Your books are fab and actually make revising fun! But why have you not got a German or Economics?

Claire — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I am the Head of History at Rushcliffe School, Nottingham. We currently teach SHP History. Your books look good but unfortunately do not cover the subjects we teach - Nazi Germany and Medicine Through Time. I am aware that Germany is covered in the Modern World book but this lacks the depth necessary for our syllabus. May I suggest that you look into publishing a Nazi Germany / Medicine Through Time booklet for SHP centres. This is rapidly becoming the most popular SHP option !

Richard Macfarlane — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Hi i just wanted to say your books are brill and i would like it if you would reply back. your books have got lots of mistakes in it (its true)

Mark Stott — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

If anyone has got any information about sats please could you e-mail them to me because i am about to take my sats in may.

Sarah Baldwin — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think your books are brilliant, nice and colourful and very understanding.

marie peace — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I am delighted to recommend these revision guides and workbooks to my students and colleagues. We use them for revision lessons and twilight lesons as well as advising students to buy the revision books for their own use. Thank you!

Angela Britnell — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The Maths books for year 3 and year 4 are useful. The Homework book for year 4 contains an error on page 17 - the number line is incorrectly drawn. Are there any errata published?

Karen Richards — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

We think your books are what we have been looking for. Long enough for a challenge, appealing to all abilities. We look forward to all your new arrivals.

Mrs L.R.Freakley — D10 City Hospital, Birmingham , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Excellent series but any chance of making more primary schools aware of your existence

Nigel Martin — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

irrum yunus — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I have anumber of children preparing for the year 6 SAT exams in the next few weeks. I was amazed to see that on page 15 of your book entitled 'Key stage 2 Maths' that you were asking the children to divide by 100 to mave the decimal place two places to the right. I do believe that the correct formulae should be to move the decimal point two places to the left, hence gaining a smaller number rather than a larger one. I am unsure whether this has been already been brought to your attention, but I am willing to do so if it hasn't. Mrs N Harris

Mrs N Harris — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The KS3 science and maths books are really useful for revising for my SATs which I have soon. They are funny too which helps you relax about the exams. Thanks!!!!

Annabel Roy — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

My mum has just bought me the study books for Maths, English and Science at KS2 in time for my SATS. I think they are wonderful and only wish I had known about them sooner. When I start High School in September I will be bying the KS3 books to help me. Thank you CGP !!!

Matthew Foody — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Your books are fantastic, they were recommended by a friend who uses them in her school. They are well presented and students I have used them with have said that they find the explanations clear and love the illustrations that accompany each page too! It is incredible that they are so cheap - one of my best educational buys for a long time! Congratulations on your success.

KERRY LAWFORD — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think your books are excellent. I am a swot and love revising - and these books help me be the very best !! Keep up the great work!!

Lucie Dakin — Sheffield , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

These are the best revision guides in the world, I used them for KS3 and am now using them for GCSE.

Kirti Purohit — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

This range looks interesting & your prices are particularly attractive. Do you have sample pages on-line (or do you have to order inspection copies via land mail)?

Ingrid Quick — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Not Bad good ordering service

Mark Holroyd — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The books of yours I have are very good and am recomending them to all my friends, but I am very interested in getting Latin and Spanish versions. Will they be comeing out and if so when? Please could you contact me. Thank you very much.

Christopher Hartley — S. Yorks , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think your books are pretty impressive, but I think in your maths workbooks, people need more space to write the answers in!

Martin Ball — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Hello, i am just about to do my science gcse modular tests and I have recently bought your 3 books. Although they are helpful I feel that too much info. is crammed in on one page. Thanks anyway. Hollie. xx

Hollie Batteson — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I ordered Key Stage 3 directely by telephone and reveived them the following day which i found very convinent & helpful. The books where excellent & my son who is in Year 9 also said how well each subject was covered & also how beautifully each page was set out making it very easy for revesion. One comment though, the prices of the books could have been a little cheaper having bought them directly from the company.

Versha Patel — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I have bought a couple of your books for my son and was so impressed that I have bought myself one for night school. Learning wasn't such fun when I was at school. WELL DONE. Keep up the good work.

Madeline Alvey — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The books are brill but there's no GERMAN one, why?

Joe Bloggs — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think these books that you write are the best of any in England at the moment. I'm doing my SATs and my sister is doing her GCSEs this year and I know that they are going to help us both get really good marks in our exams. Thanks.

David Fugill — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Really cool revision guides for GCSE and Key Stage 3. Spanish and Food Tech guides would be really useful at GCSE. Please consider these for next year. Thanx.

Bex — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

i hope this helps me pass my sat

joe barratt — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Your books are very useful for our supplementary which we run on saturdays, to tutor children of african-Caribbean origin and prepare them for SATS and GCSE examinations. Christine De.Myers-Robinson TUTOR

Afro-Caribbean Supplementary School — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

An excellent service to schools. However we have found some mistakes in the workbookand answer book Biology Key St. IV.  Homework setting no longer a problem!! The books have been well received by our pupils. How did we manage before?

R.K.Hancox — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I just wrote to say your books really help me i understand more things then ever.I recommend revision books to all childen that need help Thanks your books are great

Alan Hawkes — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Love the Science books in particular. Use them with my Y6 class. The Maths are rather hard for my remedial Maths set, but some sections are more appropriate than others. The English has been handy for staff and classroom assistants, but less appropriate for children. A number of parents show interest.

Suzanne Harper — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The books are very good but they sound like they are trying to be cool, calling teachers teach just sounds stupid, and is not cool.

Frank Joy — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think these books are really helpful i'm recommending them to my mates.

Samantha Gray — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

In Science I have a lot of questions, I want some people to help me!

Stephanie — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

The books are really helpful but you are trying a bit too hard to be 'cool' !! Try not to be too patronising !

Vickie — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think that the revision guides are very useful, and they are written in a simple way, it makes things easier to understand. I wanted a german one though!! nevermind.

Marina Aldridge — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Your books are good

danny — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I think you have done a very good job by selling us books on the internet. We are very pleased as school children that you are concerned about our education. I really like your website. God bless and keep up the good work.

Tina — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I find your books very useful and with colour and picture it makes it more fun and easier to revise for my KS3 Exams which are coming up soon.

Gurvinder Gill — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

I am 14 yrs old and preparing for my key stage 3 SATS. I have your science revision book and it is brilliant! I love the pictures and the humour and it is really helping me with my revision. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Nikki — , UK — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:07:00

Excellent books for all areas of learning. Visually explanatory, easy to follow, relevant progession and the price!! What can I say. Well done. Looking forward to more of the same. Incidentally, are you going to produce any books that relate to the new Key Skills external exam requirements,particularly, Application of Number and Communication Skills current from Sept 2000, already piloted, the first exam being Jan/June 2001?
