CGP books are fantastic — we use them at school and I find them really helpful... except when I needed help with Year 8 Maths. Other than that they are brilliant!
Sarita — London, United Kingdom — 30 Dec 2007 at 10:59:53
Please could you bring out a book for GCSE Latin. There aren''t any revision guides for Latin in the shops and loads of us are finding it rather tricky.
Michael — Borehamwood , United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2007 at 20:51:44
CGP books are legendary and also quite amusing!
Alex — High Wycombe, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2007 at 16:14:39
I really love your books, they've helped me a lot. But I really think you should do one for Italian (KS3 and GCSE) because it is becoming a popular language within UK Secondary (and also because I learn it and your books are awesome!!). Also, maybe some other languages could be introduced such as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Turkish, Arabic, Korean and also any other major european languages. This is not a complaint though — as your books are fantastic!
Connor Gower — Deal, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2007 at 14:37:47
I love CGP books they help me a lot.
zeeshan — dewsbury, United Kingdom — 26 Dec 2007 at 17:49:00
This is a really good website and a fantastic web page, I think you should let everyone go on it, as it's really intresting.
poppy hockwould — london, United Kingdom — 26 Dec 2007 at 08:35:49
I usually find maths and English boring, but thanks to CGP books I used them in Nigeria along side the recommended books - now everything seems to be making a u-turn and I find both subjects interesting now.
onanuga bukky — lagos, Nigeria — 24 Dec 2007 at 17:20:50
For GCSE English there are many AQA guides, workbooks and practice papers but for other boards such as WJEC (the one I am currently studying) there are only a few - though I am appreciative of the new Non-fiction & Media Text revision guides and workbooks recently added to the range.
Ross — Harrow, United Kingdom — 24 Dec 2007 at 13:04:08
(Commenting on book BHW43, GCSE Biology Workbook (Including Answers)
Your books are fantastic, but it would be brilliant if you could include levels in KS3 and grades in GCSE Workbooks - i.e. this question is grade A or A*.
Akef Abuinsair — London, United Kingdom — 24 Dec 2007 at 10:35:20
Wishing you a Happy Christmas - Thank you.
kim — elstree borehamwood, United Kingdom — 23 Dec 2007 at 13:21:58
These books are fun and the illustrations are cool. They've helped me a lot, I'm doing my Yr9 SATs soon and the books are really quite addicting!
rachael — sheffield, United Kingdom — 21 Dec 2007 at 17:44:11
Hi I think this website is fantastic
Josh Marshall — Sittingbourne, United Kingdom — 21 Dec 2007 at 11:20:13
Yo I love CGP — itz good. 2 months ago I was Level 4-5 and now I 'm Level 7... all thanks to CGP!
AKT — Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2007 at 21:03:38
I think CGP books are really cool and they really help when I am revising. I just think the Maths books should be less confusing =] But apart from that - you guys rock.
Ozge — Barking, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2007 at 18:25:00
Thanks to your books I got a Level 5 in my KS2 SATS test and I am now 11 years old and I still practice with your books.
Lakhvinder — Hayes, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2007 at 14:41:36
Your books are great!

CGP rocks - I am only 11 years old and I am doing GCSE and I'm doing higher level!!!
Yuwei P — Cambridge, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2007 at 20:32:32
Hiya. Thanks to your website — you made Science a heck of a lot easier for me. Thank you VERY much — lol!
Jessica — London, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2007 at 19:11:47
Hey! I really like CGP books. I love revising with them but can you make the website more colourful and make it so that it has more revison stuff... and you could also put an examiners top tip.
Prasanthini — East Ham, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2007 at 18:15:29
I like your website, however you lose points later on when I've finished revising — I have nothing to test myself to see if I have learnt it all! If you wouldn't mind, could you please put some online quizes / tests on your website? Thanks for your help!
Mel — Walsall, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2007 at 17:46:52
Your books are really good. They help me revise. It is a shame, however, that you only do a Food Technology book and not Food and Nutrition. No other companies do a food and nutrition revision guide and there are quite a lot of people who take this course. Why don't you do one?
Molly — Coleford, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2007 at 16:08:29
It would be more helpful if all the DT CGP books were available in the shops, not just Graphics and Resistant Materials.
Emma — Watford, United Kingdom — 17 Dec 2007 at 13:57:13
For the last few weeks I have been reading revision books until I found a CGP book that was easy to understand. Even the hard bits that I thought I could never learn. Thank you for the books!
Nathan — London, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2007 at 19:41:54
(Commenting on book SHR39, KS3 Science Revision Guide - Levels 5-7
This book is superb. I've just bought it about 2 months ago and a little bit of practice has increased my knowledge. Thanks to this book I got a Level 6 in my mock SATS so imagine what I'll get in the real one!
David — London, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2007 at 19:33:31
CGP books have really helped me, especially with all the colourful diagrams and the subtle humour! It's been so much easier to revise from these books than any other black and white text books!
Anika Ahmed — Ilford, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2007 at 14:09:42
(Commenting on book SMEB31, KS3 Complete SATs Practice Papers - Science, Maths and English
Can you make this book £5 please? I haven't got much money! If you make it cheaper people would buy it, but if you make it expensive no-one would buy it. I am in Year 9 please help me.
nicki — london, United Kingdom — 15 Dec 2007 at 16:24:40
The workbooks are great. LOVE the sense of humour - it gets the point across! The service is very quick — got the last book within 48 hours. Now waiting for the answer book.......just what I wanted for x-mas :D
Alexis Cowan — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 14 Dec 2007 at 23:05:12
Thank you for such a quick delivery! Wow you guys are great! As a mum, I am thrilled that all three of my children love your books and study with them regularly... with enthusiasm! p.s I hope you won at the bingo!
Emma — Bristol, United Kingdom — 14 Dec 2007 at 12:26:26
I have all the Key Stage 2 revision books, and the Literacy one has helped me get a Level 5 in the practice tests.
Leila — Burgess Hill, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 20:38:10
I think u should make the site funny like the books plz!
Funmi — London, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 18:45:31
We love CGP Books.
Andrew Panagi — London, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 14:09:54
CGP Books are really helpful and the service is very good. So is the website!
Andrew Panagi — London, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 14:08:11
The delivery was very quick. I love to order from your site rather than going to the shops to buy them. Very willing to buy more products from you.
Naventhan — Southall, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 13:55:21
I found CGP books really helpful. The text is the perfect length, the tone is light-hearted and easy to read and it makes you enjoy revision. I wish you good luck with the future.
Adam — Frimley, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 12:57:14
I think you need to get better jokes, as they are lame and just make me angry that you think they'll make me laugh. It's a bit pathetic. And some of the books are too full and too hard to read :)
Caroline — Swindon, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2007 at 11:14:46
Hi. I am in Year 11 and I find your books really helpful. They are fantastic, but the only problem is that there isn't one for drama! If you were to do a drama book you could write about the different lightings and sfx. You could also go into detail about questions in the theory bit and go over some plays like 'A View From The Bridge'. Well, anyhow, just popped by to say you do AMAZING work!!!
Charlotte :) — Rhondda, United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2007 at 18:03:05
I find that all other books by other companies have little detail and the instructions have little effort put in. But then I found an old KS3 book which I felt was excellent and clearly spaced out with instructions telling you how to do it. Plus it just tells you how to do it in the shortest way - whereas other books are just dribble. Ever since I found out about that old book I have ordered more and they have been of exceptional quality and can explain it better than anyone I know. Thank you for the high quality and cheap prices!!!!
R Burvill — London, United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2007 at 16:51:27
Your books have allowed to make me feel more relaxed under exam conditions, as I tend to feel more prepared after studying your books. I'm a fan for life! Thank you.
Carrie — Leeds, United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2007 at 15:46:38
Thanx for creating CGP books they r the best!
— , United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2007 at 18:15:04
Great books — help me a lot (Nicola,10).
Nicki — n/a, United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2007 at 18:09:20
The BEST service, free and fast delivery, brilliant. Thanks!
Ali — Nadeem, United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2007 at 16:43:24
Books arrived promptly! Well packed! I can start revising now! Thanks CGP.
Zoe — UK, United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2007 at 15:21:49
Will there be any books on Economics availiable in the future, or exam board specific books at A-level in Biology, Physics or Chemistry?
vij — london, United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 22:36:52
Guestbook Editor: We have some great exam board specific books for Biology at AS and A2 level - you can see them on our product pages under AS and A2 Science. There are some changes coming up for A-level courses in September 2008 and we're working on a new expanded range including more exam board specific books to suit the new courses. And finally... we're very sorry — but we have no firm plans to make an Economics book at the moment. Good luck with your studies!
One of the best revision tools I have ever used in all my years of teaching and now tutoring! Can we have more titles for all the new English texts please? And when will we be able to buy sets of the revision books as private buyers? This would be very useful.
Jo Bell — Tonbridge, United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 20:49:16
I'm in Year 9 and I think CGP books are great. The jokes are lame, but they still take a bit of the boredom away. I don't get why you haven't labelled the English book levels properly on the website — I wanted to buy one for Higher KS3 (like the Higher Revision Guides for Science and Maths). Anyway CGP is wicked and the price is great... carry on!
Tamoor — Southall, United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 20:16:28
Fantastic service: easy to use, and very reasonable!
Shalin Bhamra — Hatch End , United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 19:57:57
Hi. I just wanted to say that my target GCSE was to get a B in biology and for some reason (CGP) I ended up getting an A* and 40/40 for 2/3 of my tests.....mmm weird or what? Thanks
Steph — london, United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 14:34:25
Guestbook Editor: Congratulations! We're chuffed to bits - well done you.
I'm in Year 11. I think the books are great but would it be possible to put more jokes in — they are utterly lame but really help to make revision just a bit more fun. However, I do have something else to say. I was looking at the Geography Revision Guides and there are two! One is the complete guide and the other is just brown. I don't know which one to get. Would it be possible to put a bit more relevant information about what the book is about / what it contains, rather then explaining how fun it is (because that is obvious and very repeated). I was trying to order workbooks for my two little sisters and there are so many, and it says nothing about what they actually contain. Don't get me wrong — I love CGP. Thank you!
Lucie — , United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2007 at 14:29:18
Guestbook Editor: We're really glad that you're such a big fan of our books! We'll have a good look into your comments and see what we can do to make sure our book descriptions are as useful as possible for everyone.
I found your books really helpful at GCSE and I hope they are just as helpful at AS Level!!
Kevin — Ludlow, United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2007 at 14:15:50
I've got all your books for my GCSEs and I need some info about how to de-stress myself. Do you have anything like that?
— , United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2007 at 21:56:24
Guestbook Editor: We hope it's not our books that are stressing you out. I'm afraid we don't have a book on that but we do try to help with our jokes and doing our best to help you revise.
Hi — could you do practice papers for RE, History and Graphics?
Chenellle — , United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2007 at 21:46:27
I love your books, they help me a lot to remember everything.
I think you need to put games and things on the web site so that we can revise on the pc. I'm in year 11 and I didn't understand why there was only French on the interactive part. I don't do French or German. I'm just curious.
Shelley :) — Solihull, United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2007 at 17:01:43
Guestbook Editor: We guess you're looking at the GCSE section - which does have English, Maths and Science as well. I think we just had an enthusiastic French éditeur.
I'm in year 6 and these revision guides r helping me a lot!!! But I'm still scared.
gabby — london, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 23:39:25
Great web but I think u should make it more interesting for kids, e.g. educational. Like questions to do with Maths, Literacy etc...
gabriella — london, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 23:35:31
I am in Year 6. Ur revision books are really helping me in my practice SATS — they are the best! I have done a lot of the pages in Maths and Literacy.
Abbey — Croydon, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 21:03:38
I think your books are really helpful and helped me to pass my GCSE's. But now doing A-levels you only cover 2 of my subjects. Why don't you do an English Lanuage AS revision guide and an ICT AS revision guide?
Roxy — , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 20:53:05
Hi. The jokes are really funny, I really like your books. I am in Year 6 please could you inculde SATS practice papers because my SATS are coming up. Thanks!
Usman — Bury, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 16:27:44
How do you get the answers to the questions?
youknowwme — london, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 14:47:44
Guestbook Editor: Well, we do make answer books which you can find on the web site. Or you could just work them out if you'd rather...
Since Head Start Tuition have been using your company for teaching resources, we have found the service to be first class and your books a popular teaching aid for our pupils.
Mrs Cowling — Swindoon , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 11:55:54
Not too sure what a previous contributor is talking about when he ridicules your CGP Chronicle. Personally, I thought the picture on page one of teachers fighting over books was hilarious.
Matthew — Manchester, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2007 at 11:13:55
Fantastic books and fantastic service.
John Scott — St Ives , United Kingdom — 06 Dec 2007 at 19:26:59
Your books are the best revision guides — but the jokes need a little work! Your GCSE Geography book helped me tonnes!
James — Derby, United Kingdom — 06 Dec 2007 at 16:40:03
(Commenting on book BER51, AS-Level Biology Revision Guide (Edexcel)
This book is most helpful! The style of the page layout is perfect, neat and colourful with important words in bold. It has a lot of detail but it is displayed in an interesting way so revising will not be too boring. It is a lot different than the average text book — containing rows of dreary information that becomes very tedious to learn. Also, the questions on each page are very helpful to test yourself on what you have learnt. Thank you CGP for helping me to revise more efficiently and getting me through my AS exams. With your A-level book I hope to pass my exams this year.
Ali Tudor — , United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2007 at 20:17:34
I'm in Year 6 and SATS are coming up very soon — I would love it if you could put some practice SATS papers on your website. It would help a lot.
Hannah — Hull, United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2007 at 11:00:17
I love the jokes in these books. They are so cheesy, but really help.
Dannie — , United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 20:42:08
It would be nice if you had on-line revision tests. My brother is in Year 4 and wants extra help with his maths. Can you help out by giving us some mental maths papers on the internet? Thank you very much.
Leah — Bolton, United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 19:53:41
I love your books! They're the best. I have currently only got 3 (GCSE History, Geography & Product Design). Every one of them is great! There's a sense of humour to them too, which I think is needed when revising. It can help you to remember things (well it certainly helped me in my mocks). I would like to thank you for producing the GCSE Product Design book as well, because only two publishers do this book as far as I'm aware and you're book just outrules the other one! The price is also reasonable! No negative points from me —because you're a brilliant company! Keep the books coming!!
Chris — St Helens, United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 16:32:07
Not sure why you think I would want to waste my time reading your puerile flyer "The CGP Chronicle". I have no intention of buying your books while you insist on a "weak joke per page" policy. And why does a poor defenceless chihuahua deserve to be ridiculed as in your "chronic caption corner". Have you all totally lost the plot?
Grahame Veale — Newton Abbot , United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 12:08:57
Guestbook Editor: We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your copy of The CGP Chronicle. We know that our sense of humour isn't everyone's cup of tea, but surprisingly enough, some people do find us slightly amusing.
Just read some of the comments! I am a teacher and find that your books appeal to all, cover everything needed and more, are fun to work with and, compared with others, are brilliantly priced! Fantastic service to boot!
Gaynz — Northants, United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 12:03:49
Your books are very good! Please bring out an A-level Maths Workbook with Practice Papers. A-level Maths is a subject that needs lots of practice — so that would be fantastic!
Paul — Southampton, United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2007 at 10:41:47
Thank you — a brilliant site =]
Abbie — Bexley, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2007 at 20:30:21
I need help in Chemistry, especially with balancing equations.
Deborah — Accra, Ghana — 03 Dec 2007 at 19:42:16
I do really love the books that your company have made.
Kamila — Ripon, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2007 at 18:40:15
I needed help with my Maths, so I bought a book. It was really boring, so I read a CGP one instead. It was really fun to read and I learned loads!!
Emily — Wolston, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2007 at 18:21:54
I found this book exciting. I wish to read many more of this edition. I cannot wait for the next installment.
Kyle Anderson — Luton, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2007 at 11:29:49
My son is busy revising for his Mocks with all your GCSE books. He turns to them for better explanations and clarity where his school books are failing or are just plain boring. My daughter will sit her SATS with your help too. A top-up order is on its way. Many thanks!
Dawn — Chesham, United Kingdom — 02 Dec 2007 at 23:18:09
I just want to say that your books are really helpful. I was predicted a D and after using your books I have managed to bump it up to a low B. The only thing I have to "dis" you on is the price. If you bumped that down I'm sure more people would buy them! Anyway... cheers :)
Kate — Cornwall, United Kingdom — 02 Dec 2007 at 16:34:48
Great books, really well done. However at AS and A2 Level there are very few books. I know it must be hard to get people to write that much stuff, as the A2 stuff is very indepth and not as many people are doing the subjects. If there were more books in my subjects I would buy them.
George — Essex, United Kingdom — 02 Dec 2007 at 11:10:12
There aren't any downloadable practice papers and the interactive quiz isn't that helpful.
Elliott — Llanwyddelan, United Kingdom — 02 Dec 2007 at 10:38:50
These books got me a B and C in my mock GCSEs.
Chenelle — , United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 20:39:17
Hi! You should do History, English and R.E. at A level and AS.
— , United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 20:35:53
I think that CGP books are spectacular! My kids have the Maths ones and have moved up 2 sets now! Thanks, Laura.
Laura Brown — London, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 18:52:51
This is rubbish! Where are the bits about powers?
Angry Student — Leeds, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 15:30:37
I'm doing 11 GCSE's and can only afford to get a few of your books. 11 books would cost £49.50. Please could you make them cheaper? Then I would be able to get more.
Sarah — York, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 15:18:00
I have to say that CGP books are easy to understand and the books are fabulous. The way the book is arranged is fantastic. Also, the best thing about purchasing the book is that there is no postage fee and I liked the website.
Ahmad Dehghani — Hayes, West London, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2007 at 15:04:52
