Hi everyone at CGP! I really love what you've done with the new website, it's great. I love using your books, they make revision so much more fun, and you take some of the stress away from school. I'm starting my A-Level course this September, and I need all the help I can get. Thanks again, Lauren x
Lauren — Guernsey, United Kingdom — 29 Jun 2005 at 09:15:48
Thanks CGP, your books are great and really help me with my revision. Cheers! =) You guys rock! Luv ya!

I have just started Newcastle Univeristy as a mature student studying Electronic Engineering. Your maths books have been most useful to help me get back up to speed with basic maths - especially with calculus!!! The 'waffle-free' approach makes it all the easier to understand these subjects which are sometimes over elaborated by eccentric lecturers! Keep up the good work!! Any chance of bringing out an A-Level Electronics book?
Matthew Mallett — Newcastle, United Kingdom — 27 Jun 2005 at 22:31:49
I feel that CGP has a great range of different levels and years for schools and I think that's wonderful, but I have only got a few of your books because I find them a bit expensive.
Jenny — Nr Norwich, United Kingdom — 27 Jun 2005 at 12:41:33
Cheers for the help, your books are good.. the jokes are a bit irritating after a while, but from doing no work then reading your books, I actually found I knew something afterwards. In Food Technology, it doesn't cover all of the work we've done like ingredients for sauces, pastry etc.. cheers tho..
Jess — Reading, United Kingdom — 26 Jun 2005 at 16:29:25
I think your books are very good. You put the information in the books in a way that is easy to understand and also the comments are funny - they help you remember.
Danni — Colchester, United Kingdom — 26 Jun 2005 at 16:03:13
I think you should fire the bloke who writes your 'jokes' — they are ridiculously old and lame. You say you're dangerously close to being funny, well believe me, you are miles away!! So no danger of that! But the rest of it is pretty ok.

I am studying Maths with a learndirect centre and I am working through data handling / data and statistical meausures, measure,shape and space /common measure plus numbers / calculators and numbers/ whole numbers. In these sections you have to achieve a level one to be able to go for the level one foundation exam. Today I have purchased two Key Stage Two books, the Important Bits and the Study Book. I never passed Maths at school and I really want to acheive a qualification in Maths even at this late stage in my life. All I would like to know will these two books be able to help me with the things I have to cover to achieve the foundation level 1 or will I have to return these books . Please help me I really want to achieve my goal and I desperately need your help. (PLEASE EMAIL ME BACK AND LET ME KNOW AND IF NEEDED GIVE ME THE NAME OF THE BOOK THAT I SHOULD PURCHASE) Kind regards. Julianne P.S. Your books are great.
Julianne — Kent, United Kingdom — 25 Jun 2005 at 23:28:57
You need to make the revision guides for more interesting topics.
Amber — Colchester, South Sandwich Islands — 25 Jun 2005 at 22:08:11
Your books really heped my GCSE revision in Science, Maths and Geography, so when I started revising for my AS level Geography I ordered one of your revision guides which really did help. I intend to continue Geography through to A2 and wanted to get the revision guide early to help with note-taking etc, however I can't find one on your website, so do you make them? If not why not!!!
Helena — Driffield, United Kingdom — 25 Jun 2005 at 13:44:55
I have bought CGP GCSE Double Award Science Chemistry (Higher level) —however I bought the 2003 copy and am wondering if that is ok for my exam next week. I am in year 10.
Jenny Payne — Parkgate, United Kingdom — 25 Jun 2005 at 11:59:59
You should put the books on as PDFs so people can download them.

After doing my G.C.S.E's it is clear just how good these Science books are. It is thanks to them that I sailed through all three of the Science exams. They may seem expensive but they are so worth it, thank you CGP. I hope your A-level books are just as good!!
Emma Smith — Nottingham, United Kingdom — 24 Jun 2005 at 15:35:59
Hi, I think the CGP books are great practise for GCSEs. I'm only in year 10 at school and we've already started using the Maths homework ones. I'm in the 'Intermediate' group at my school and my homework book is brill - I love it !!!!!!!!! Lots of love, Emzi!!!!
Emzi — Newcastle, United Kingdom — 23 Jun 2005 at 20:20:08
these books are good but smell funny!

Where's your A2 Psychology book??!! Please tell me you're doing one soon!!
Fudge — London, United Kingdom — 23 Jun 2005 at 19:18:46
You are right - CGP books are no good. You should produce a book which tells you about everything in every single subject.
Kamal — Woking, United Kingdom — 23 Jun 2005 at 19:11:09
I think your books are great and I have been working from them since year 6. Now I am approaching year 9, I'll know what books to study from! I like your idea of producing ICT books but I think it would also be a good idea to produce some language books for French, Spanish and German for example - this would help me and I'm sure a lot of other students. Your website is .... well... ok but could do with some improving - maybe revising tips or something? Just an idea. Thanks.
Suzanne — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 23 Jun 2005 at 18:57:42
I have used your revision guides for all of my subjects and I don't know what I would have done without them. However, please please please can you make a revision guide for economics as it is one of the most difficult subjects that so many people struggle with and there is not a single revision guide on the market which makes the subject sound human. Please help us CGP.
Yasmin Michelle Bastow — Dubai, United Arab Emirates — 23 Jun 2005 at 09:45:31
Please do a chemistry A2 revision guide.
Rajan Patel — Croydon, United Kingdom — 23 Jun 2005 at 09:37:58
To be honest, I reckon your books aren’t that great... they don't cover the subjects in detail, which is what gets the marks... They are good for a quick bit of revision before an exam though. Plus all your jokes suck :)
Henry — London, United Kingdom — 22 Jun 2005 at 19:09:00
I just had my last GCSE exam this morning and the CGP books have been so helpful! They are so funny!
Juliet — , United Kingdom — 22 Jun 2005 at 16:06:04
I think that it would be better to have a sample of the books that you can actually read not a blurred copy. No-one really knows what they are buying on the internet unless they can actually see it. I don’t mean to sound harsh but it’s the truth!!
Fiona — Derry, United Kingdom — 22 Jun 2005 at 09:34:40
I liked the books but your website is lousy! You should have more things in your website. More sample pages of the books would be helpful.
Tamara — Lima, Peru — 22 Jun 2005 at 02:07:57

Lauren — Southampton, United Kingdom — 21 Jun 2005 at 12:51:05
Your books are useless because I failed my exams and you said that these books were that good to make me pass my exams but they are totally RUBBISH.
Chris — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 21 Jun 2005 at 12:45:52
I used to order books from you for my son and found them very helpful - I don't need to order them for him now as he uses CGP books at school. I need to order some for my daughter who is starting reception in September. I have found a book on maths for her but not for English. Can you suggest a suitable one? Thank you

Linda M — London, United Kingdom — 20 Jun 2005 at 20:31:55
The AS level Biology OCR book is great for those giving OCR exams, everything you need to learn for the exam is present in the book excluding things you don't need, which is great!! I've always got top grades by using CGP books for revision, thanks to the whole CGP team.
ANNIE — Surrey, United Kingdom — 20 Jun 2005 at 20:13:34

Jodie — , United Kingdom — 20 Jun 2005 at 15:27:41
You do a Child Development Revision book but you don't give any help on the subject online. This would be really useful as I have not been able to find any websites with help on Child Dev. And I'm sure that in the future other people will want that extra help too.
Lisa — Cheshire , United Kingdom — 20 Jun 2005 at 15:05:15
Wow. CGP have a guestbook — this means that I can lodge complaints where someone will read them. Well! Where to start? Firstly, I believe a sense of humour is required to write a book with "dangerously funny jokes". Secondly, I notice that at the end of every page someone has written a slight variation on exactly the same paragraph — something like: "This is boring, but it's useful for exams. Insert awful pun here." It ain't always boring, guys... some of it's fun. However, I do commend CGP for use of the word "thang" on inside cover of the IT revision guide. And the goat on the back is pretty scary...

Hi, I found a mistake on page 41 of the Science Higher book! (I think it's Double Award but lost the cover!) — in the right hand pink diagram propene has only 5 H's instead of 6! A cash reward or a free car and some other free stuff would be nice (you never know I could have saved you £millions) failing that an nice email saying thanks would be good! Oh and I'd like to argue with "Mrs Smith" who left a comment in the guestbook saying "the poor language makes children dumber" well what does she know? I find it really useful as it emphasises the words and phrases you have to know because they are in Standard English. I'm predicted an A* in science which is the only subject I have a CGP book for, which proves you wrong and us "kids" are not dumb in the first place.

Very good! Useful and helped me a load. Very good for timing — when you get into the exam and you're nervous, you don't know how long to spend on each question. These give you a rough idea about how long to spend. If you're taking GCSE Maths Higher, these are a must have!

Charlotte Bailey — Burntwood, United Kingdom — 15 Jun 2005 at 15:30:37
Why do your books treat us like we are three years old? They lack maturity, the humour is more suited to a Key Stage 2 book. Fair enough, the books are of a bit of help but the immature nature is distracting and irritating. Grow up!
Tony Williamson — Girvan, United Kingdom — 15 Jun 2005 at 12:57:59
You should make the books clearer when they are made and then they can make people as smart as the people that wrote them — so us children can use it to revise and know what we are doing.

Hello CGP. I'm a not particularly scientifically-minded A level student and I haven't really looked at anything too science-oriented since GCSE. I'm about to sit my General Studies exam tomorrow and was just flicking through my CGP double science revision guide in the hope of absorbing some knowledge through osmosis - only joking - just to refresh my memory. I thought I'd write to say thanks very much for making GCSE science much more straightforward - and stick with the humour for ten year olds (much more up my street)! I'd forgotten how excellent and funny your stuff was and wanted to tell you. So I have. Cheers.

I find your revision guides quite helpful, but what about for A/S and A2? I pretty much bought one for each GCSE subject I took and found them really helpful and it reflects as my GCSE points average was 7.4. BUT.... I could do with more and so could others for AS and A2! Currently I have the Maths and Physics guides, but they cover all specifications and you have to really delve through to pick out the relevant stuff and you don't cover all subjects! I need Italian, French and P.E too!
Valentina — Wakefield, United Kingdom — 14 Jun 2005 at 13:18:22

Jenny — Rugely, United Kingdom — 13 Jun 2005 at 11:25:58
I found your books really good — they're easier to understand than most other revision guides and the information is broken down into smaller chunks so I can memorise quicker as well. Plus they have a sense of humour so I don't get fed up. I think the only downfall is that you have questions at the end of each section and you do not find out if you got the answer right or not. You only find out the answers in the Maths books.
Sophie — Suffolk, United Kingdom — 13 Jun 2005 at 09:38:12
Do you do German: Complete Revision and Practice books? Any sort of Classical Civilization guides would have also been useful but I couldn't find any. It's too late for me now as GCSEs will be over within a fortnight, but I have your big revision books for practically all other subjects, and Classics is for me definitely one of the best subjects. I don't usually bother reading the sarcastic comments at the bottom of every page as to me they all seem to say more or less the same thing —''read this page. Heard that? READ IT AND LEARN IT or you'll be completely useless when it comes to the exam because it's likely you're going to be tested on it, an examiner's favourite!'' Well, they seem to have a lot of favourites, and these comments do sometimes just make me feel guilty for turning the page as it's always going to be the one thing you're not so good on that comes up in the exam in a big way. I have found one or two good pieces of humour amongst all the poor jokes, which was probably funnier as it was such a surprise. Even from primary school, I remember having to raise an eyebrow more than a few times at CGP books for this, finding it patronising that they thought I might dare laugh at such an awful pun. After using other guides so much I am occasionally tempted to try and click on some of the emboldened words in your books to see what they mean, because they do sometimes jump at you from nowhere. Generally though, they are great revision guides which have probably helped me work a lot less harder in my GCSEs, being such a lazy person and not wanting to sort through the scrappy, half-completed, half-lost or torn up piles of notes stuffed anywhere they'll squash into around my room. Thank you x

I find your books very useful but I am the kind of person who needs to hear the information, not see it, so it would be great if you could do revision notes on tapes, or CDs.

Thank you so much for bringing out an A2 Biology book – it’s brilliant!!!! I used the AS one for an exam and had to order this one straight away!!! Also, it came so quickly!!! A2 Psychology one would have made it even better!!!

Your revision guides are excellent; the humour added makes them much more fun than any other revision guides! It still makes me chuckle when I see the jokes! All information is laid out very clearly and is easy to understand, and the diagrams are very useful. CGP revision guides are much better than any others..... Thanks for the help you have given me in my exams with these books!!!
Mayur — Leicester, United Kingdom — 10 Jun 2005 at 17:13:49
I am very sad to see you no longer offer the school discount to home educators. As a home educator, I get no financial assistance to educate my child and I depend on organisations such as yours to understand that we buy a lot of books from you and the school discount really helps. Last year I ordered over £60 worth of books. If I had not had the discount this would have been well over £100. With the amount of home educators around (and this is growing) I am surprised that you would reverse the decision to give the school discount to us.

Very pleased with the products I have received at present. When I first used website, it did not register my request for the English KS3 set. This order I have just placed has now added on unwanted Maths KS3 books, when I have not even been into the Maths section. I now have to contact you to cancel the Maths books which I have already got and do not want to duplicate.
Mrs K J Hedges-Gower — Thame, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom — 10 Jun 2005 at 11:37:29
I am currently working on the CGP key stage 2 maths book. I have been confused by page 25 - the page on mental arithmetic. In the first box it says that to do the following sum 431 x 200, first multiply 431 by two and get 862. Then move the digits of 862 two places to the RIGHT. What is confusing me is that the arrows show the digits going LEFT, and if I move them to the right the answer seems to be 8.62 instead of 86200. Is this a printing error or is my maths wrong? Please put me out of my misery !! Much appreciated, Toni

Your Revision Guides are truly excellent, but please, please, PLEASE could you produce some equally excellent guides for the Extra Triple Science Modules we have to suffer?!?

I have been very pleased with your books so far but am very disappointed with the lack of A2 level books. I'm doing fairly common subjects (ie. Sciences and Maths) and really think you should bring out an A2 level range especially in these particular subject areas which are common choices. Thanks.

(Commenting on book XRR41, Professor Gunning's Erudite Course of Fact Retrieval (How to revise)
I have enjoyed CGP books and found them indispensable. However, this is the only CGP book with which I was disappointed. The internet picture belies the fact that it is very small. The content is useful - if you can read the very small print. I think that it needs to be in A4 format and then it would be fine.

(Commenting on book FHW40, GCSE French Workbook with Answers - Higher
This workbook was an excellent educational tool for my two daughters who took their French GCSEs as external candidates. Each day, they were able to do a couple of pages from the book independently and then check the answers with me. There were a variety of questions on each page, which was excellent for practising exam technique. It is well laid out and interesting for the students. My only criticism is that whereas the questions are in euros, the answers (at the back) are still in francs. Just a few of the answers are incorrect and so the publishers need a proof reader to sort them out. However, the workbook is well worth purchasing - it was an indispensable educational aid. Note to publisher: I have noted the incorrect answers as I found them and so if you were to contact me, I could tell you where they were.

(Commenting on book FHS41, GCSE French Complete Revision & Practice with Audio CD
This book is well worth purchasing. My two daughters took their French GCSEs as external candidates using this book. I found the book indispensable. Other revision guides are not as good as this one. I particularly liked the grammar section. To practise exam technique, my daughters used the exam questions dispersed throughout this book, which are really excellent as well as the test papers included at the back of the book. It was the best investment that I could ever have made for my children's exam success.

I’ve been using your book and on some subject it has taught me nothing....I’ve been very disappointed. I’ll give it credit for the basic stuff but the advanced...it’s poor...I’m sure you will sort it before the next batch come out. Your attempt to use "nowaday" language isn’t that good. It’s a bit errrrrm...rude boyish...stick to the normal stuff and you’d get one better.
Simon Dawson — Farnborough, United Kingdom — 07 Jun 2005 at 11:41:15
I disagree, your maths revision guide for GCSE for too complex and confusing. There was too much technical language - like you’re talking to someone who already knows maths and not the struggling majority - hence the reason we got the books. Your target audience is thrown off balance here, I think. Take the criticism, and improve please CGP.
Tom — F'boro, United Kingdom — 07 Jun 2005 at 11:33:51
CGP books, particularly Maths, are absolutely fantastic. I have one of these books in every single subject and I find them very useful for revision; especially now that I have GCSE exams.

Your books are so good, they got me through GCSE's with excellent results- I ended up with AAAAAAAAB! I have just finished my AS levels and am waiting for the results. The CGP books were excellent for revision especially the exam board specific ones because they are so easy to use and follow the syllabus exactly. I am taking Biology and Geography next year so it would be great to have an AQA specific guide for A2 Biology, and A2 Geography, and maybe there could be an A Level Environmental Science one because nowhere makes revision guides for it. THANKYOU! Your books are great.

Anyway I just wanted to say thanks for publishing these wicked books and keep it up. Love the site too... it looks brilliant. I was doing my revision from a Maths Revision Guide (Intermediate) and I found some errors in spelling and answers. The numbers are all jumbled up. I can scan in my page because I've circled them [needed the answers to the acid test] but I didn't know how to send it to you. Well I've left my email .. so byeeee.

Your books are all you need to get a great grade in your GCSEs. However, have you ever considered putting a few revision pieces on this site, and maybe some questions like on other websites??

I was just reading the previous comments and it was soooo weird when I saw 'Jo's' comment from Exeter (strangely only 20 minutes away from Newton Abbot). I agree (even though I am against smoking) that what you said there really was definitely NOT RELEVANT AT ALL! !!! We will not be asked that in a Biology test!!! I laughed at what they said at the end - read it – it’s funny. We do not need to be preached at by half of the adverts/teachers/parents/posters/booklets etc that we are subjected to. Let alone a STUPID REVISION GUIDE!!!!
Sarah 14 (again) — Newton Abbot,Devon, United Kingdom — 04 Jun 2005 at 22:42:40
I think that your books are great and they make things easy to understand when it's cut down to just the really important bits. Sometimes I've been amazed to see that about ten pages worth of work that I do in my school book can be chopped down to just one page. And when I come to revising I find that one page has just as much, if not more information on it, AND is more interesting and takes less time to read AND on top of all that I remember it better! The only complaint that I might have to add is that like many people have said, sometimes there are just TOO many coloured boxes that you stuff everything into. If I were you, I would save the REALLY important things and put THEM into bright boxes instead of trying to put EVERYTHING in them! And yes---the jokes can be a tad patronising. Like you got some middle-aged people in a smoky boardroom thinking about what to say that would sound 'cool'.

Is there any chance of you making revision cards preferably with full diagram on 1 side & blanked words of diagram on other? Even just 1/2 pages of diagrams that can be carried & looked at easily would be great. I have been making my own but it takes so long...would be happy to discuss the idea further as other companies are now making these revision cards but I particularly like the CGP style.

A few weeks later I notice that there was 17 pages missing between pages 30 and 47. I previously contacted you and have heard nothing back. Due to this problem I had to purchase another identical book and now am left with an extra. I would be very grateful if you could get back to me on this matter. Thanks, Scott Munson.

Hi, thanks for all your help but please could you have some question papers for people to do online?

I have just recently done my Common Entrance exams and, thanks to you, I got into my chosen school. I especially liked the English Books as they explain things really well. THANKS!!!

Good books but bad website.

I found this website very easy to follow and get what I really wanted. It's a really grimey website!

At first when I flicked through these CGP books in WH Smith, I thought they were another one of those sets of books full of information and boring. When I started revising it, I noticed it covers everything very well in the best way possible. A*

I'm in yr 11 and I am using these papers to help me revise. I think they're great and it's good that you can check your answers and see what you've done wrong. Thanks CGP!

I think it would be better if the photos were not all scattered around so much.
Chelsea Webster — Norwich, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2005 at 14:21:43
It would be better if it didn't have pictures and comments scattered around! It makes me feel like I am 10.

WOW! Without you my SATS would have been a disaster. Well done CGP!!!!

I think you should make a Latin KS3 and GCSE book. Also, what about Classical Studies? Definitely Latin please.

These are really good books and at the moment I am in the process of revising for my maths module 3 examination. I am finding the maths higher work book at lot of help although the only problem is your answer book gives the answer but not how you got the answer. This would be very helpful and would also help me to understand it more. Is there any way you can help answer my question for me? The question is: If L=MN, what is the percentage increase of L if M increases by 15% and N increases by 20%? I am also using the revision guide that corresponds with the workbook, however this is not covered. Help would be appreciated. However, apart from that I cannot fault your books! They are extremely helpful and very useful. Thanks!!!

Hi, I just wanted to say that your books are fab!!! The jokes are cheesy. No, I’m messing - the books are great for education. I loved the joke about the poem ‘Love after love’ in the ‘GCSE English Language poems from other cultures’ book. EXAMS AFTER EXAMS! You guys are great, man. Keep it up.

I like the way the page is set out and that the pictures don't overpower the words or vice versa.

Your books are interesting and fantastic to work from. I can remember everything I've read, thank you CGP

I'm busy studying for my AS level Biology exam. The exam revision book for Edexcel is amazing. I've managed to grasp concepts that seemed so difficult to understand in class. The light footnotes are also amusing and break the monotony of studying.
P.S I hope you plan to do an A-level Edexcel Biology and Physics book before next year! Please do an AQA Psychology one as well!
Yvette — Ashtead , United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2005 at 17:25:49
I really enjoy studying from your books although I think you should have more books for subjects like ICT and RE and also maybe more interactive things online for them as well.
Pookie — London, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2005 at 16:56:38
Hi! I am taking GCSE Classical Greek and Latin in 2006. I love your books and could really do with some for these subjects. There do seem to be many people wanting a Latin one, especially, looking at some of the comments! I do know that AQA is withdrawing these subjects after 2006, but they are still being examined by OCR, so it would not be a waste of time! Thanks!
Antonia — Leeds, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2005 at 16:30:50
I was so pleased to find your website. My son Billy, who is 9, is just taking his tests to prepare for SATs. I have ordered practice papers for SATs & 11+, as this will help towards understanding what he has to know & the format in which they are written.

I don't get what is so good about this stupid site — only joking, it's quite good. I've seen better though!!!!!

I think CGP Books are great. They make boring education suddenly seem more interesting. If only teachers could be the same!

I think your books are great and they have really helped me in past exams and I hope they will also help me with my GCSEs. I have just one question: As GCSE Electronic Products is the hardest DT option, not to mention one of the hardest GCSE courses, why is there no mention of it anywhere in your catalogue? Please create a revision guide for it as it can be a very confusing subject. Thank you.
Matthew Atkin — Huddersfield, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2005 at 11:05:53
When are you going to release the AS Media Studies book? I didn't take the subject at GCSE yet I'm taking it at A-level and your revision guides will help me catch up on the material learned at GCSE. I'm in desperate need of this book!!

One word, extremely good! I have always used CGP textbooks in my lessons and my old pupils thank me for it!
Mr. Falliner — Edwinstoe, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 23:36:40
I found your books very helpful for SATs preparation, but the KS1 Maths Study and Question Books do not offer enough repetition in my view for children who are learning a topic for the first time.
F Shaikh — Northolt, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 20:28:22
Most of your books are great, but some of the stuff really is not relevant. I was looking at the higher biology book earlier and the part about smoking is really stupid. "It's a one way trip pal" - it isn't!!! You don't take a drag on a cigarette and destroy your entire life, which is pretty much what you are saying. I also don't think they will ask us in the exam about smokers being no happier than non smokers...people can make their own choices without being dictated to by a revision guide.
Jo — Exeter, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 17:49:00
Why don't you publish revision guides for Latin and Classics? There are none on the market and it is very frustrating. And why haven't you published an English revision guide for A-level? I'm sure it’s a far more popular subject than Business Studies or Geography.
Sarah — Brighton, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 17:24:06
You make the worst revision books, ever. They are so patronising for the able pupil; the unamusing little drawings, the pathetic little speech boxes and sayings, you ought to be ashamed.
Anon Ymous — Somewhere, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 17:09:51
This is a very good website and I have seen through your books that my class have made a massive improvement!! The humour put into it makes it more fun for the children to learn!! Well Done!!

I have not got this book yet but from what I have seen on this website it looks really helpful. I'm getting it soon hopefully as my exam is on Monday.

Why don't you make a GCSE Latin revision thing as it’s a harder subject than some of the other ones you make books for, such as citizenship. So please make one.
Bob — London, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 15:13:44
I can’t find the order catalogue on here. Where is it? I’m kind of panicking.

I've tried to log on but your column won't accept USA. I buy these books every time I come over and use them in my Advanced Maths classes. They are an excellent supplemental source and help my kids greatly. I would love to be able to buy a class set or better one for all my students.

The tests are good but maybe having more would be helpful and having them over a broader range of subjects? It would really help to have practice tests and things like that! Thanks anyway.
Philippa — Oxted, United Kingdom — 01 Jun 2005 at 12:10:48
On the games, if you write in an answer in capitals like: 'Solid' and it wants 'solid' it marks it wrong. Could this be changed?
