I think these books are really good and the study books really help with my homework and now that we are starting to get homework more often the question books come in really handy.
Laura — Douglas , United Kingdom — 30 Jan 2009 at 20:59:42
Love your books. My girls have utilised them from Key Stage 2 SATs, and are now in to AS level and Key Stage 4 (GCSE).
Karen Stewart — Cleator Moor, United Kingdom — 30 Jan 2009 at 17:48:36
I really like your books, they helped my kids get level 5's and they're really happy now as well. I'm going to use them for my other child too so I'm really pleased with them. I love the prices too, they're only £2, which is in my price range, so yes I am really proud of the books and my kids.
Emily — Edmonton, United Kingdom — 30 Jan 2009 at 07:44:22
I absolutely love these books. They will help me when I get my Year 6 SATS ready for high school. I am age 11 and I am in the top group for everything so really I am just revising. Even if you think you know something, it is still good revising with these books. The books I got for Key Stage 2 from school were the best!
Natalie — Derbyshire, United Kingdom — 29 Jan 2009 at 17:35:37
These books are really helping me with my SATS. They are really helpful and the illustrations make me eager to read that part. Thank-you for creating the books.
Jody — Romford, United Kingdom — 29 Jan 2009 at 13:37:43
I absolutely LOVE these books! I always turn to your books when I have no idea what the teacher taught us. Recently I told my friends about them and they decided to buy them too. They save me a lot of time and instead of going through the internet I have your books! Thank you and please keep up the amazing work!!
Grapes — Old Windsor, United Kingdom — 28 Jan 2009 at 20:01:23
CGP books are really helping me, I'm getting better at every subject at school. I'm sure I will get high marks in the SATS.

I think that this was a very good site and I really love your revision books especially your KS3 Science books!
Thomas Yelland — Kingston, United Kingdom — 28 Jan 2009 at 19:53:16
These books are very good, I know I'm only 11 but I have learnt a lot by reading just the KS2 Science book, and they will help me a lot with my SATS!
Emma — Worksop, United Kingdom — 27 Jan 2009 at 19:15:49
I want these books but I can't have them.
Lucy — Ferndown, United Kingdom — 27 Jan 2009 at 17:30:29
The jokes in your CGP revision guides are abysmal. They have the same quality as jokes on the back of Penguin wrappers. You are not funny.
Hello — , United Kingdom — 27 Jan 2009 at 16:39:27
Guestbook Editor: We're sorry you don't like our jokes. We know they're not everyone's cup of tea but most people do seem to like them.
Είναι απολύτως μυθικοί!!!!
Bob — Crete , Greece — 27 Jan 2009 at 15:07:56
I really like your books and I think that they really are helping me because my SATS are coming up in May and I feel a bit apprehensive. My friend has got them too and she thinks that they help her too, so if I were you I would keep up the good work and never give up in your life because when I grow up and have children I would want them to be reading them. xx
Angel — Mozart, United Kingdom — 27 Jan 2009 at 14:10:23
I appreciate what a lot of work goes into these books (I have been using them for the last 5 years or so) and I'm wondering why there isn't an A2 Psychology book! Despite the amazingness of the AS Psychology book, I'm going to have to buy a rubbish, boring and uninspiring revision guide now!
Becky — Oxford, United Kingdom — 26 Jan 2009 at 19:46:17
Guestbook Editor: That's a very good question... our busy little editors are working on an A2 Psychology book just now, but it won't be ready until later this year. This might be a bit late if you're taking your A2 exams in this school year — sorry! Good luck with your studies though.
I just would like to say that I think these books are absolutely brilliant. The way it is set out makes it fun and easy for me to read. Generally I am not very good at science, but thanks to your Key Stage Three Science Revision Guide I now understand the difficult aspects of science i.e 'Geological changes, rocks and the three states of matter, a lot better. I just would like to thank you for providing these books and I now have more confidence that I will get at least a level 7 on my SATS. Thanks a lot!
June Johns — , United Kingdom — 26 Jan 2009 at 19:37:01
Thank you! Amazing service. From the phone call I made to you yesterday, to the books arriving today, with free delivery and discount on my order too (7 books in total). My son immediately picked up the KS3 ICT book and within five minutes, tried something he had just learnt from the book! He hasn't yet looked at the others, but I am confident he will get as much from the KS3 range as he did from the KS2 books. I have read many of the guestbook comments and would like to add that I feel your prices are very reasonable, the quality of the books is very high, your website was easy to follow and I am surprised there are complaints about the interactive element as, after all, it is a bonus feature. Once again, thank you.

I always come to CGP first when it comes to buying revison guides. They are by far the best! It's really straightforward to order the books online. Thanks CGP :D x
Mariam — Crawley, United Kingdom — 26 Jan 2009 at 19:13:04
There should definitely be an A2 Maths range - after all it just gets harder - C3 & C4!
Shreeya — Woodford, United Kingdom — 25 Jan 2009 at 15:55:19
My husband and I loved the maths book. We used it to help our daughter to improve her maths.
June Johns — Cams, United Kingdom — 25 Jan 2009 at 15:43:05
What level should I be aiming for KS3 in Year 9? Is it a level 6 or 7?
Kelly — , United Kingdom — 25 Jan 2009 at 15:40:12
Guestbook Editor: Our Key Stage 3 books cover a range of different levels — it might be an idea to ask your teacher which level is best for you.
These books are brilliant. My mum bought the whole pack. Cool.
Becky — Cams, United Kingdom — 25 Jan 2009 at 15:32:59
I was given the address by my daughter's Maths teacher, so I could purchase books to help with her learning. I found the web site very easy to use and we can't wait for the books to arrive.

My CGP book is one of the best books because it gave me a level and now I'm top of class. Thank you CGP!
Tharsha — Bromley, United Kingdom — 24 Jan 2009 at 16:52:02
Your books are really great. I find them really helpful and the Core Science book helped me to achieve a grade A in Year 10, I just hope I do as well this year. I'm definitely going to buy more of your revision guides to help me out! Thanks :)

I have found other companies have an audio CD with their German revision guides. Unfortunately CGP german revision guide hasn't got an audio CD. This is important in helping us through the listening exam. Will it be possible to make an audio CD that will be available for customer use as I really enjoy CGP books.

I love the jokes in the books, it makes revision less monotonous. Thanks for getting me through my GCSEs and now part way through my AS levels.

CGP books are the best revision guides to help you get the best grade.
For anyone thinking twice about getting a CGP book, it is the right choice, as they show you step by step in the books how to solve and work out problems. They're excellent and a great help.

Hello! I'm in Year 10 and I would just like to say that your OCR 21st Century Core Science Revision Guide really helped me through my first and second module exams! Thank you so much, I've learnt loads from your book and I have them for all my other subjects. You will be the reason I pass my exams with a B - thank you!! Love you forever!
Ellen — Norwich, United Kingdom — 14 Jan 2009 at 20:29:45

Thank you so much CGP. After a recent trip to the library and discovering one of your KS2 Study Books on Maths, I finally have the help and the equipment I need to teach my 10 year old daughter (who is home educated) every subject in detail. 100 out of 10 in my opinion! Thank you, we will definitely be back for more.
Rachel Fyfe — Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom — 14 Jan 2009 at 14:09:36
The CGP books are really brilliant - they got me through my GCSEs. I actually learnt Physics from them because I never understood it from my teacher! But have you ever considered doing a range for the IB? I'm doing it instead of A-levels and I can't find anything that makes revision as fun as you!
Jenni — Cumbria, United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2009 at 21:39:46
Guestbook Editor: We're really glad you like our books. We don't have plans to publish any IB books in the near future — sorry! Our AS and A2 level books cover much of the same stuff as the IB course, so you might find them helpful. Good luck with your studies.
I really wish you would stop putting lame jokes in the books, they really aren't funny. Other than that though, the books are good.
Rhiannon — Selby, United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2009 at 19:47:17
I enjoyed the Science book very much. I liked the part about the properties of solids, liquids, and gases, it was really educating.

I enjoy reading the CGP books as the interesting cartoons drawn on the pages make it fun to revise the facts you need to know for SATS or GCSEs or A-levels etc.

Does this Workbook (and the Physics and Chemistry Workbooks) have an answer sheet inside?
Caroline Taylor — Walton on Thames, United Kingdom — 12 Jan 2009 at 16:01:41
Guestbook Editor: This book doesn't have the answers inside it, but we do have a separate Answer Book which contains answers for all three of the Workbooks you've mentioned. Have a look at our product pages for more info — the one you're looking for is KS3 Workbook Answers (book code SHA39). Hope this helps.
I wish you made Statistics A2 books. Now I have to revise without your illuminating descriptions, instead I've got people that phrase the stuff like they're talking to fellow university professors.

I have used your books to tutor children from all Key Stages for many years and highly recommend them to parents. They are child friendly and I wish I'd had them when I was at school as now my dad would have more hair. They help children where English is a second language to learn too, and I've had many who have gone onto Grammar School because of these books. Many thanks to CGP from me and all my students.

I recently bought the AS level Maths Edexcel Core 1 Revision Guide which I am quite unhappy with. The book is quite patronising and even has a page about cows which has nothing to do with maths. I have had other CGP books in the past too through school and like this one, they were all patronising and didn't tend to help too much. Safety warnings like 'eat more sprouts' shouldn't be put on the books either, can't you just keep it about the subject?
