Why do people keep telling you what they've had for tea? I have to say, it's really quite annoying for those of us who haven't had our tea yet. I'm looking forward to some bacon and aubergine risotto tonight, but I'm not going to harp on about it.
Rubette — Padiham , United Kingdom — 30 Oct 2010 at 23:20:42
Guestbook Editor: We admire your restraint.
Hi! Just want to say a big thank you for all the help your books have given me and I am sure they have boosted me up to 2 grades higher than I was expecting! Also, thank you for the IGCSE revison guide for maths I am about to take the exam and would be so stressed if it wasn't for you! You're a bunch of lifesavers! Thank you!!
Becca — Ipswich, United Kingdom — 30 Oct 2010 at 12:34:48
Guestbook Editor: Just doing our jobs, ma'am. Hope the IGCSE Maths exam goes well!
the book is very prety

No, no, don't marry Dan, I know him and frankly he's a bit of a geek. Marry me instead, I want the CGP confetti and the fairy tale wedding. Please, you're so lovely and funny and everything really... XXXXXXXX
Colin — Padiham, United Kingdom — 29 Oct 2010 at 12:28:18
Guestbook Editor: This is all getting terribly confusing. I just can't decide — could you settle it between yourselves in some kind of non-fatal manly duel? I find that a few brain-taxing games of Connect 4 usually separates the men from the boys.
My son who came to England just about 8 months ago from Japan (with very little knowledge of English) is now laughing out loud working on your "Math KS2 The Study Book". He even thanked me for buying this text!
Momo — London , United Kingdom — 28 Oct 2010 at 21:49:55
You're an absolute lifesaver....your books are brilliant, and the jokes make my revision a little bit lighter.....thanks for all your help in the past, right now, and many years of educating to come......
love from your used to 'really don't like revising' to 'now it's kind of durable' student xxx
Chelsea — Surrey, United Kingdom — 28 Oct 2010 at 21:48:11
Guestbook Editor: Thanks! CGP — purveyors of durable revision since 1995.
Hello, could I use GCSE CGP revision books for iGCSE edexcel exams? I just bought a GCSE CGP book for almost every subject I'm doing and for most of my subjects I'm doing iGCSE exams, plus there weren't any books for iGCSE on the shelf at the time...
Trina — Swanley , United Kingdom — 28 Oct 2010 at 11:41:33
Guestbook Editor: Great to hear that you're finding our books helpful for your exams. As luck would have it, we've just released some brand new books for IGCSE Maths (for Edexcel and CIE) — you'll find them in the GCSE Maths section of 'Our Books'. And just between us, I'll wager there'll be plenty more gorgeous IGCSEness from CGP in the future...
I am in year 9 but where already starting are GCSE work which maths book should i use? Note in science i am using the book: GCSE AQA core science.
Georgina — Goodmayes , United Kingdom — 26 Oct 2010 at 22:08:06
Guestbook Editor: We reckon the best thing is to ask your teacher which exam board you'll be studying, and which type of course. We've got Modular and Linear maths books for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. Failing that, our general Maths Revision Guides (MHR43 and MFR43) are suitable for all exam boards. Have fun!
The site really helped me alot i learned loads and hopefully this will help me remeber it all for the test.
Ronnie — Liverpool , United Kingdom — 25 Oct 2010 at 17:02:20
your books are very good for children
jack — london , United Kingdom — 25 Oct 2010 at 15:18:45
Really useful helps you to get the grade you want.
Rumaanah — coventry, United Kingdom — 25 Oct 2010 at 13:11:45
Love the CGP Books, a regular must for each A-Level class now. Have you used the in-die seas joke yet for mathematical powers? I have frequently - it doesn't get any better I'm told but I still think it's funny...:-)
RAS — Welton , United Kingdom — 24 Oct 2010 at 19:25:05
Guestbook Editor: It's a classic. I can't remember whether we've used it in a book yet, but we've got some brand new AS and A2 Maths books on the way, so maybe it's slipped into one of those. Bonus mechanics joke... Q: Why did the cat slide off the roof? A: It didn't have a big enough mu. (If you're a maths geek, this is *hilarious*. Trust me.)
I find your books extremely helpful but i now need an A2 human biology book, do you sell these? because I bought a AS human biology book last year thanks.
Lizzie — London , United Kingdom — 23 Oct 2010 at 11:58:34
Guestbook Editor: We don't have an A2 Human Biology book at the moment, I'm afraid. We'd definitely consider making one in the future, but probably not in time for the 2011 A2 exams. Glad you've found the books helpful.
Hi your books have been really helpful to me so far, i was just wondering if you would be making an Irish or Welsh revision guide which is as good as all your other ones??
Caoilainn — Belfast , United Kingdom — 22 Oct 2010 at 19:31:23
Guestbook Editor: Sorry — we're not making Irish or Welsh Revision Guides at the moment. But if we ever do, they'll definitely be as good as our others. We're very consistent.
Hi, the books are good, but I wonder why it is cheaper to buy from schools than buying from ur web.
Ade — Luton , United Kingdom — 22 Oct 2010 at 18:11:27
Guestbook Editor: Hello! What it basically boils down to is that schools regularly buy our books in large quantities, so we're able to offer them lower prices. If you've got a taste for numbers, you'll find more details about our prices and discounts on our Infrequently Asked Questions page (about halfway down).
Hi- was wondering is you would ever be releasing an an English Literature and Language CGP book for AS and A level students. I know loads of people where I live take the combined subject, and would really benefit from it?!!
LauraJaneee — Cornwall, United Kingdom — 21 Oct 2010 at 10:13:35
Will you marry me?

Dan — Padiham , United Kingdom — 20 Oct 2010 at 20:23:50
Guestbook Editor: Join the queue, sunshine. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I'll marry you. I've got some draft copies of old CGP flyers that we can cut into cute shapes and use as confetti. It'll be a fairytale wedding.
Hi im starting college in a few months and i have chosen accounting and economics i was wondering do you have any plans to make AS level Accounting and Economics? Because i love your books and they so easy to understand!!!
Fatima — Manchester , United Kingdom — 20 Oct 2010 at 18:01:28
Guestbook Editor: Sorry... we're not currently planning any A-Level Accounting or Economics books. But things can move fast at CGP — you can now follow us on Twitter (@CGP_Books) for news, updates, mumblings and general shenanigans. Tweet us some love, Guestbook fans!
Any updates on when the A2 Maths books will be released yet?
Annie — London , United Kingdom — 18 Oct 2010 at 17:47:48
Guestbook Editor: Here's the latest... sparkling new AS & A2 Complete Revision & Practice books for Edexcel Maths will be out in mid-November. General editions (suitable for all exam boards) will be out shortly after Christmas, with AQA and OCR versions following not long afterwards. We'd recommend that you start jumping up and down with excitement now — it'll help keep you warm as the nights draw in, if nothing else.
I too think your books are exceptionally useful and extremely good value for money. I can't wait to receive my order. They help me get ALL my pupils through their 11+ exams and into their preferred choices of school. Many thanks.
Frances — London, United Kingdom — 18 Oct 2010 at 11:24:30
CGP books are wonderful. I'm homeschooled and I use them for English and French. I motored through the KS3 French course as it was so easy to pick up and have finished it today, a year earlier than I should have! Thanks for great books!
Olivia — Bury , United Kingdom — 18 Oct 2010 at 11:10:42
Guestbook Editor: Bien joué!
Love the books, they're so helpful and the jokes (that are disturbingly similar to some my dad might tell) really help me to not get bogged down revising :)
P.S. Having cheese panini's for tea !!!
Chloe Adams-Pickford — Sheffield , United Kingdom — 16 Oct 2010 at 18:10:15
Guestbook Editor: Your Dad is clearly a man of great wit. Glad the books are helping you out!
These revision guides are fantastic and the service is so efficient! My students love them!
Carole Hines — Coventry , United Kingdom — 15 Oct 2010 at 21:30:33
Hello your books are very good and they are better than [competing publishers] becse they are plain boring !
muhammad — blackurn, United Kingdom — 15 Oct 2010 at 21:14:42
we are having rice and peas for tea! a TRUE feast!! LOL
Bridget Aberdeen — Northolt, United Kingdom — 15 Oct 2010 at 16:55:59
Guestbook Editor: Sounds lovely. Are you going to mix them together, or keep them separate as nature intended?
Thank you for an excellent service. I have been ordering your books for a number of years for our school and they have been very popular as well as usual with pupils and staff.
I am about to retire but know the school will continue to use this excellent resource which is such good value.
Amy Flanagan — DROMORE, United Kingdom — 14 Oct 2010 at 12:02:33
Hi there, I would just like to congratulate you guys on such a user friendly Website, it was a pleasure to shop with you!! I've just purchased some Revision guides for my 15 year old Daughter and she's quite excited about receiving them! Oh and just if you're interested, we had Chilli and Nachos for tea :) Many thanks
Nicola — Carlisle , United Kingdom — 13 Oct 2010 at 22:27:37
I love these books. Managed to get me 8A* and 6As at GCSE! I put it all down to them!!
Molly — Hereford , England — 13 Oct 2010 at 16:31:39
How likely is it looking that the A2 Geography guide will be out for June 2011? It was great for AS and I reckon it'll be essential in getting a good grade this year!
Elliot — Manchester , United Kingdom — 12 Oct 2010 at 18:01:33
Guestbook Editor: The CGP likely-ometer says it's very likely — we're definitely aiming to have the AQA A2 Geography book ready in time for June. More news as we get it...
The writing in the revision guides and in such close proximity to each other that I find it hard to read, as I am dyslexic I really struggle reading the book as the pages are to small. This can effect my GCSE result as I revise with your booklets If I fail my exams I will be blaming you!
Elizabeth Jane Andrews — chichester , United Kingdom — 12 Oct 2010 at 14:37:15
Guestbook Editor: Sorry to hear you've had trouble using our Revision Guides. To make them easy to refer to, we try to fit everything you need to know about a topic on to one or two pages — sometimes that can be a tight squeeze. Have you tried our Complete Revision & Practice books? They're much more spacious, and they include loads of exam-style practice questions (with answers) as well as study notes. You can look through sample pages on this website. Good luck with the exams!
Any GCSE revision books for the new Edexcel B course?
Danielle Lea — Towcester , United Kingdom — 12 Oct 2010 at 08:29:53
Guestbook Editor: If you're looking for Edexcel B (modular) GCSE Maths, we've got brand new Revision Guides, Workbooks and Practice Exam Papers for 2010 — just go to 'Our Books' and have a browse in the Modular GCSE Maths section. We don't currently have any books specifically for Edexcel B GCSE Geography or History, but you'll find plenty of useful material in our general books for those subjects. Just give us a shout if you need more details.
CGP, I love all the cheesy jokes, please keep them up! Thank you for helping me to achieve A* in maths! :)
Bradley Mcgeough — Halesowen, United Kingdom — 11 Oct 2010 at 16:51:40
Thank you CGP!!! I probably owe you at least 3 of my GCSE grades (I got 8A*s, an A and a B:). Looking forward to A2 maths books. Are you planning any AS English Lit books? An OCR Wilfred Owen poetry Anthology would be great (it definitely worked for GCSE:).
An automatic coursework generator on the website would be great too...
Ben Swan — Kingston Upon Thames, United Kingdom — 10 Oct 2010 at 13:14:04
Guestbook Editor: Gosh, nice grades — glad we could help. Maybe you could combine your coursework for English Lit and Maths by translating Jane Eyre into a system of differential equations? "Reader, I integrated him (with respect to x)." Just a thought.
(Commenting on book MSHR42, GCSE Statistics Revision Guide - Higher
This book is extremely well presented and packed with definitions, explanations, examples AND questions for practice. I find the end of section review questions to be very useful for 'Traffic Lighting'.
Alana Andrew — Kettering, United Kingdom — 09 Oct 2010 at 19:20:03
LOL thankss. Been really helpful actually, hopefully they'll come in time for some exams i have next week. :')
Lucy — Epsom , United Kingdom — 09 Oct 2010 at 18:17:11
I have just bought your A2 books for the sciences. Your books helped me so much with getting through my AS levels as well as my science GCSEs. I hope the A2 books are as amazing! Thankyou
APS — Manchester , United Kingdom — 07 Oct 2010 at 19:07:21
Guestbook Editor: Don't worry — our A2 Science books will literally* make your head explode with joy. (*Not literally.)
well your site was very helpful thank you
sandy — London , United Kingdom — 07 Oct 2010 at 16:44:16
i had salad for tea tonight with tear-and-share bread
harrison — sittingbourne, United Kingdom — 06 Oct 2010 at 20:45:22
Guestbook Editor: Mmm... I've tried that bread before. It always ends in tears.
I tried to select several titles and add them all at once to the order, but the system only added the title that I used the 'add' button on, not all of them, so I had to add titles to my order individually. Apart from that, fab selection of books, found exactly what I wanted. Thank you!
Isabel — Sutton Coldfield , United Kingdom — 06 Oct 2010 at 18:54:02
Guestbook Editor: Sorry to hear you've had problems ordering on the website. To add more than one book to your order at once, just fill in all the quantities you'd like, then scroll to the top of the page and click on the 'Add All To Basket' button. Glad you found what you were looking for!
Please continue to make these really useful books. And I'm cooking roast chicken and potatoes for the family. Yum.
Sheilagh — Buckingham , United Kingdom — 06 Oct 2010 at 16:56:26
Hi, I am thinking of having oven grilled chicken with roast vegetables and mashed potatoes.
Thanks for the books and free p&p!
Christine — Bedford, United Kingdom — 06 Oct 2010 at 15:45:58
I love you!
Luji — Brighton , United Kingdom — 05 Oct 2010 at 19:54:21
Guestbook Editor: Crikey.
Hi, if I want to return a book and I don't have a return form, how can I do this? (I ordered the wrong one!)
Alice — Plymouth , United Kingdom — 04 Oct 2010 at 20:12:27
Guestbook Editor: This sounds like a job for our lovely team of crime-fighting Customer Services cats. To contact them, go to the top floor of the tallest building you can find, open the window, and bellow, "CGP Customer Services, ho-o-o-o!" as loudly as you can — they'll arrive in a flash. Alternatively, send them an email to the address at the top of this page. Either way, they'll be happy to sort out a return for you.
I've been using CGP for three years now and it never has failed me. Let's hope you guys'll get me an A* this November in my biology and chemistry exam! :)
Sid — London , United Kingdom — 04 Oct 2010 at 19:12:42
CGP rocks! I wonder if they could show and sell more of the CGP tip books? I only have that for chemistry but would like it in other subjects too!! xx
Melissa — Surrey , United Kingdom — 03 Oct 2010 at 13:20:06
Guestbook Editor: Thanks! As luck would have it, we've got exam tip books for Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, plus a book crammed with general revision tippage for all subjects. The easiest way to track them down is to go to 'Our Books', then type 'killer tips' into the search box. Bam. (Oh, and you can also find some handy online CGP advice for revision/demon-slaying by clicking here. Good luck...)
Love these books. They have been fantastic since I have started my GCSE's (I am in year 11 now), and have helped me with English, History, Physics, Biology and Chemistry modules :)

When clicking "see inside this book" it only lets you see the cover and no sample pages or even the contents
Isam B — Ilford , United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2010 at 23:28:20
Guestbook Editor: Ah, slight technical problem. Thanks for pointing it out — it should be fixed now, so browse away.
yh your website was real good i loved it i really loved it because it was real easy to revise and all those comments on the side made it so encouraging thankyou so much for trying to make learning a bit fun seeya!!!!
zharah — nelson, United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2010 at 22:58:46
What a delightful web site. Welcoming and informative ... with a touch of humour too. This is my first order. I'm hoping to goodness that the delivery arrangements are as good as the rest of the package you provide. I shall be waiting on Tuesday behind the letterbox!
Chas Rice — Dronfield , United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2010 at 21:39:21
Guestbook Editor: We'll do our very best to make sure your books fall straight into your waiting hands on Tuesday. Try not to alarm the postman with your enthusiasm.
These books are really helpful for studying. They're really helping me with my revision. Thank you. :)
imogen — elland , United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2010 at 14:13:59
Guestbook Editor: Excellent news — good luck with the revision!
Thank you for your wonderful service and products which make my job so much easier and enjoyable.

Mariah — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 01 Oct 2010 at 18:31:04
Guestbook Editor: Thanks. We'll add that to our database.
