I LOVE CGP BOOKS! =D I love how they use language children use not those proper posh english!! =P
Cindy — London , United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2010 at 23:27:05
Guestbook Editor: Indeed, the deployment of proper posh English runs entirely contrary to our pedagogical philosophy. That's why they don't let me write the books.
Please make Uni books
Geo — Bpool , United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2010 at 15:43:49
Hiya... I'm about to choose my A2 subject choices and I noticed that you dont have a History revision guide.... Do you have any plans to make one? It would be really useful and I love all of your GCSE books so I want to be able to use them for sixth form too!
Becca — Ipswich , United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2010 at 10:22:11
Guestbook Editor: Just between you and me, we're working on some new books for AS-Level Edexcel History. More details as we get them...

CGP books are the best! I have received so many great results so far by using them... I find it so much easier to revise rather than using my boring exercise books. The guides are really informative and the hilariousness is brilliant. Keep up the good work CGP, and I look forward to purchasing more revision guides in the future!
Sana — Manchester , United Kingdom — 27 Dec 2010 at 14:41:40
Guestbook Editor: Thanks! It's great to hear our books have helped you to get good grades. It's our patented blend of informativeness and hilariousness that does it. And there are loads of ace new CGP books on the way in 2011...
oh! and a merry christmas to you!! ;)
Sabrina — luton , United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2010 at 14:57:38
hey!!! your books are gr8! i used them for my gcse's and got a*'s for maths, biology,chemistry and physics! (which i never thought would happen!) now i'm doin AS examz but u don't seem to have any ocr maths revision guides for core 1?
anyway i bought some for chemstry and psychology for AS. thanx!!
sabrina — luton, United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2010 at 14:36:45
Guestbook Editor: Nice grades! We've currently got a Revision Guide dedicated to OCR Core 1 (just look under the 'OCR' heading in our AS Maths section). Plus, in March we'll have new Complete Revision & Practice books for OCR AS and A2 Maths — they'll cover everything you need.
I was very pleased to find CGP to aid my revision for A-level Biology. I like the way the information is so concise and presented logically, so all you need to know as detailed on the specification is there, without anything being superfluous. Revision is now less boring, thanks CGP.
HPJM — London , United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2010 at 14:06:46
Guestbook Editor: Concise and logical, that's us. We have no time for superfluity. Best wishes for many happy hours of efficient Biology revision, followed by exam success.
i had been using your tips for my last exam and i got quite a good grade!!!!!!
emily — anon , United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2010 at 11:32:54
Guestbook Editor: Excellent news! Hope you have quite a good Christmas, too.
these are the best ever...........keep on sell them to us
mariam jalloh — freetown , Sierra Leone — 21 Dec 2010 at 21:38:30
I'm 12 years old, and I use CGP books for studying English and maths.
They help me a load, and since I bought those 2, I haven't had any problems whatsoever with my tests I revised for in these books.
Irene — Goardamar del Segura, Spain — 20 Dec 2010 at 20:05:21
Hey hey hey hey heeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!! XD
I got an A on my recent(-ish) RE exam, but I can't help feeling that I would have got an A* with the help of your books. (And yes, I know an A is still pretty good, but it's not my target level...) Are you going to bring out a GCSE RE revision guide soon...? PLEASE!!!!! I'm doing AQA RE-ness, if that helps... (=
And I'm revising OCR Triple Award 21st Century Science Biology, Chemistry and Physics exams at the moment, and the books are really helpful. Thank you!!!!!!! (= x x x
Charlie — Stourbridge, United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2010 at 16:42:29
Guestbook Editor: A Revision Guide for GCSE Religious Studies, you say? We're way ahead of you — you'll find our RS books in the Humanities section of our GCSE range. Happy browsing.
aha. your books are extremely amusing, especially the photos. lol.
Misbaah Iqbal — Huddersfield , United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2010 at 15:49:03
hiya, just wondering if the new books explain a lot on P4- Explaining Motion as I have not found many resources for revision, notes, practice questions etc. Thankyou
Sophie — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2010 at 15:47:35
Guestbook Editor: Hmm... sounds as if you're doing GCSE Physics with the OCR 21st Century exam specification. You'll find plenty of P4 notes and practice questions in our Physics Revision Guide (P2R41) and Workbook (P2W41). If you're not doing triple science, P4 is also covered in our Additional Science books. You'll find them all in the GCSE Science section of 'Our Books' — go for the OCR 21st Century editions for the best coverage of your course.
i really want to order these books but how
mariam — birmingham , United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2010 at 12:03:06
Guestbook Editor: Ah, so many options. You can order directly from the 'Our Books' section of this website. Or you can contact our winsome Customer Services team by phone, fax or email for friendly advice and efficient service — just go to the Contact Us page for the details. Easy.
Overall, I love your books. I am 23 and I need to get GCSE Maths to C to do the PGCE. So I am working my way up throughout the key stages to improve my skills. However I have noticed that there are some mistakes in the workbooks, some of the answers are wrong and there are answers missing. I will be buying more books, I just hope there are no more mistakes.
Lindsey — Oldbury, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2010 at 10:25:57
Guestbook Editor: Pleased to hear our Maths books are helping you out. We're very careful to make sure all our books are as accurate as possible (our proofreaders can spot a misplaced decimal point from 100 metres on a foggy day). If you think you've found specific mistakes, please let us know — we'll get them fixed next time we reprint the books.
Your books are really, really good. I have four and they have not disappointed yet.
christopher smith — godalming-fancome, United Kingdom — 17 Dec 2010 at 11:25:28
Great to find that you provide maths IGCSE. Please look into supplying english and science also.
Clara Stait — Basingstoke , United Kingdom — 17 Dec 2010 at 10:25:16
Never mind kids or teens I'm an adult with a degree and professional qualification and studying another professional qualification in accounting and finance. So maths being a key subject and not practised much in my current profession all I can say is the study guide issued by the accounting body is difficult to read and in sleepy black and white...no kidding I still have my old books from technical college how did I ever manage to pass maths back then? Anyhow now that I have to practice much of that forgotten subject I needed something easier to read..mate the GCSE maths higher gets a great thumbs up..it actually speaks volumes good work CGP..all i can say is kids must enjoy going to school these days. PS my partner who is learning English via ToEFL (as her second language) I am considering the English version of the books for her it would probably stop her bothering me every 2 minutes!
Paul Hudson — Dubai, United Arab Emirates — 17 Dec 2010 at 06:04:08
Guestbook Editor: Thanks for the thumbs up — we're pretty sure that kids enjoy going to school these days. Right, kids?

thiz book is to sick itz really good lol
lara — bradford , United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2010 at 20:14:12
Keep up the good work CGP, these books make GCSE revision fun... almost!! :)
BB — Harrogate, United Kingdom — 15 Dec 2010 at 16:01:07
Guestbook Editor: If there's anything more fun than revising with a CGP book, I haven't discovered it yet. And it should probably be illegal.
Your books really helped me at gcse but your AS level range misses out 3 of my subjects (economics, pe, history). Can you add more to get me through the year! :)
Rosie — Reading , United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2010 at 18:46:42
can you please make a gcse sociology book?
Z — London , United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2010 at 13:29:48
Thaanks for the help
I have now passed my GCSE P.E short course :D
A stsr Child — Luton , United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2010 at 11:09:05
Guestbook Editor: Good work.
Your books have helped me to help my son on many occasions. Thank you so much!
Sarah Sidaway — taunton, United Kingdom — 12 Dec 2010 at 09:53:30
Oh my gosh, CGP books are the beast! I have received so many great results so far by using them... I find it so much easier to revise from them rather than using my rather boring exercise books. The guides are really informative and the hilariousness is brilliant. Keep up the good work CGP, and I look forward to purchasing more revision guides in the future!
Chloe — Burnley , United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2010 at 19:31:42
Guestbook Editor: CGP books are the beast? That should be our new slogan. It's definitely my new catchphrase. Glad you like the books, and good luck with your future exams.
I love your books, they are very good!
Tamara — birmingham , United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2010 at 12:20:38
These books are fab! Can you consider doing a Latin or Ancient Greek one please??? I'm taking them both for GCSE and I am going to carry them onto A level. There are no books on the market for students like me... I have to write everything out by hand when my teacher reads it, or borrow a ridiculously thick and heavy book from the library, to spend hours flicking through to find the things that apply to me! If you amazing guys at CGP made a Latin/Ancient Greek one it would help me soo much and also, it would encourage more young people to take Classical subjects!
Bekki — Manchester , United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2010 at 20:04:02
Guestbook Editor: I'm afraid we're not planning any Greek or Latin books at the moment, but flicking through ridiculously thick and heavy books is half the fun of studying Classical subjects, right? Or maybe that's a misconception I've picked up from Harry Potter. The real world always seems to pale in comparison to Hogwarts.
Love Love CGP Books I am amazed at such fabulous editions! My Grades have definitely increased Thank you! I can't stop reading them they're hilarious and interesting!
Xenia — London, United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2010 at 20:43:16
I just want to say thank you for publishing such helpful books. I love to learn new things and your books help me to do so. Thank You cgp
Sam — wales, United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2010 at 09:57:38
CGP books have saved my life on several occasions. Thank you. I even like the rubbish jokes- the best one is the whole page on Air Guitar in the Music one. Have you thought of setting up a CGP academy? Can I come? Also, can you do revision guides for Classical Civilizations please? Thank you!
Rebecca — Manchester , United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2010 at 21:59:53
Guestbook Editor: A CGP Academy, eh? Imagine it — classroom upon classroom full of eager young minds devoted to thinking up ropey puns about circle geometry and so on. Not all the time, obviously. We'd let you out for Christmas and royal weddings. Oh, and baseball caps and sunglasses would be compulsory parts of the uniform. Come and join us...
Can I return a book if it is the wrong one?
Danielle — Burnley , United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2010 at 20:16:56
Guestbook Editor: Yep — shouldn't be a problem. Just email our friendly customer services team with the details (the address is at the top of this page).
i really like your cgp books but my comment is that kids like to watch TV more then revision so why don't you make a revision program on bbc1 or on any channel e.g. a science revision program on different days
top gun — birmingham, United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2010 at 09:55:22
Guestbook Editor: Kids like watching TV more than doing revision? Things have changed since my day.

Paul Sengebusch — Haywards Heath , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2010 at 15:06:15
Guestbook Editor: I'm not a Business Studies guru, but I think pages 110-115 cover the stuff you need to know for the AQA exams. Appraise indeed.
I really want the A2 version of Human Biology revision guide. Will you be making one?
A NEW A2 HUMAN BIOLOGY REVISION GUIDE
Ryan Levett — Southend-on-Sea , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2010 at 11:28:40
Why do you not have a Human Biology A level book?
Jon Staines — Southend-on-sea , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2010 at 11:27:09
We need an A2 Human Biology revision guide
Ryan — Levett , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2010 at 11:26:58
Guestbook Editor: Three requests in a row... this almost looks like a coordinated campaign. We'd love to make an A2 Human Biology book to go with our AS edition at some point, but it's unlikely to happen in time for this year's exams, I'm afraid. Sorry, Southenders.
(Commenting on book RSEM21, KS2 Monsters from the Sea Reading Book
its very intresting you should make some more
lehi david derick michel smart — coytroyhen , United Kingdom — 06 Dec 2010 at 15:06:46
Hi CGP - just wish to praise you because I wouldn't be able to revise with out your books.
My only complaint over the website is the lack of Games in your games area. It only seems to include Maths and since I am not doing maths its kind of pointless.
Baggy — Derbyshire, United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2010 at 14:15:33
Guestbook Editor: Thanks — glad to be of help. We've got a range of subjects on our Tests and Games pages for KS1 to GCSE, but only Maths for A-Level at the moment. (Although they're mainly formula sheets and statistical tables, so you're not missing out on too many revision-based giggles.)
In your revision sheet entitled: 'What's on the Menu', you have a passage that reads: The most popular pizza toppings in the UK are ham, mushroom, and pepperoni.
Since when has it been correct to put a comma before an 'and' in a list?
Hardly surprising we have children that can't use grammar, when they are given incorrect examples.
Jacqui Flisher — Newbury, United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2010 at 13:59:45
Guestbook Editor: Oops, a rogue Oxford comma. Please excuse our American English — if you let us know exactly where it is, we'll do our best to correct it. In the meantime, can we get away with claiming that we wanted to insert a short dramatic pause before revealing the popularity of pepperoni? Thought not.
can you lower the prices because i cant afford most of the books
Jim — southport , United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2010 at 13:08:28
CGP- your books are the best and although they often get a few groans from my friends, the jokes/puns at the bottom of some of the pages in your books are actually quite funny:) Seriously though, they are a massive help for GCSE science revision!
Fran — Daventry , United Kingdom — 04 Dec 2010 at 20:48:55
hi, i was wondering if you had a purple colour grammar, GCSE english book. but unfortunately i do not know if it is a work book or revision guide, also i could not understand your site, please help :(
Rachael — Longridge, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2010 at 17:07:57
Guestbook Editor: It sounds as if you're looking for our GCSE English Grammar Study Guide (EFG40) — it's tucked away with the Revision Guides in the 'English & English Language' section of the site. If you're stuck, you can always search for key words on the 'Our Books' page. Hope that helps.
Your books are literally amazing!!!
I only just noticed last night when i was reading the BACK of all of my revison guides that you had a very 'valuable' safety notice above every barcode.
I will make sure that I don't plug my book into mains or chew it...
Misbah :D — Chesham, United Kingdom — 01 Dec 2010 at 11:56:13
Guestbook Editor: Just a little bonus for those of you who read your CGP books from cover to cover...
