Your books are driving me to success; I feel that some of the content is equivocate, however! Either way, thankyou very much, I am soon to be a very happy young adult!

Joshua — Hannah , United Kingdom — 30 Mar 2011 at 22:35:59

Guestbook Editor: Very glad to hear it! (For additional happiness, we'd recommend using 'equivocatory' as an adjective, and 'equivocate' as a verb. We just can't switch off our educational impulses.)

this book which is key stage 2 the study book is sooooooooooooooooooooooo baddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

mahira — barking , United Kingdom — 30 Mar 2011 at 16:33:45

Guestbook Editor: That's stretching it a bit, surely?

Do you plan on bringing out an as level accounting book?

Mia — Leigh, United Kingdom — 30 Mar 2011 at 16:12:13

I like your books they're not bad they actually really help so YO YO YOOOOOO CGP

Jay — Abuja, Nigeria — 29 Mar 2011 at 18:25:44

Guestbook Editor: Yo yo yo, indeed. Er, right back atcha?


GRACE — LONDON , United Kingdom — 29 Mar 2011 at 17:36:22

i am a loyal cgp book user and i get all of my revision guides from you but i need a geography revision guide and our school are using the AQA specification b and you do not sell a revision guide for this course. i think that you should also include a AQA specification b in your range of products, this would be great!

taylor perry — hillingdon , United Kingdom — 29 Mar 2011 at 16:32:30

our school gave us englishand maths and a study book how cool is that? i am loving them i am doing it right now!!!!

holly — birmingham, United Kingdom — 28 Mar 2011 at 19:53:28

May I ask why you dont have Antarctica listed as a country when we are asked to fill in our country?
I find it quite offensive to anyone who might be writing from there

Mary Christmas — Imaginary Antarctica, United Kingdom — 27 Mar 2011 at 14:53:17

Are the Languages and Sciences normal GCSE books the same course as iGCSE? what science books would you get for igcse?

Greville... — Balamory , Liechtenstein — 27 Mar 2011 at 14:51:58

Guestbook Editor: IGCSE courses are usually a bit different from the equivalent GCSEs, but they cover a lot of the same material. We'd recommend using our 'general' GCSE Science books (for all exam boards), since they include topics from a wide range of GCSE courses. But they may not cover absolutely everything you need for IGCSE, so it's worth checking with your teacher if you're not sure.

Are you planning to bring out any igcse biology, chemistry or physics books soon? they would save my life, literally.

Mandy Welch — London , United Kingdom — 27 Mar 2011 at 14:49:28

Guestbook Editor: Literally? I knew IGCSE exams were tough, but I didn't realise they were life-or-death. The good news is that IGCSE Science is on our list of things to do — the books should be out in 2012. Hope you can survive till then.

I Don't Think I Could Have Passed Any Of My GCSE Science Exams Without The CGP GCSE Science books... Highly recommended!!

Steff — Bridlington , United Kingdom — 27 Mar 2011 at 12:26:20

cgp doesnt give any useful tips

Sejal — whitehall , Ukraine — 27 Mar 2011 at 11:43:22

What are the chances of there being some kind of CGP support for Spanish AS level by september 2012?

jasmine — london, United Kingdom — 26 Mar 2011 at 21:19:29

Guestbook Editor: Yo! We can't really confirm or deny AS Spanish at the moment — eighteen months is a long time in the fast-lane of educational publishing.

hi your books are great! just wanted to ask will there be a human biology revision guide for the exam board OCR any time soon? thnx :)

sabrina — luton , United Kingdom — 26 Mar 2011 at 16:57:47

Guestbook Editor: Hello — glad you like the books. I'm not aware of any CGP plans for OCR Human Biology, but maybe if you close your eyes and wish really hard... Actually, that probably won't help. Sorry.

why are the books for schools and ovrseas people cheaper it's not fair!!! :(

Hi do you have any revision guides for AS/A2 in Religious Studies

help123 — Bradford , United Kingdom — 23 Mar 2011 at 15:05:46

Guestbook Editor: Sorry — we only have Religious Studies books for GCSE level at the moment.

(Commenting on book SMEB21, KS2 Complete SATs Practice Papers - Science, Maths and English

this book is great.

mahira — barking , United Kingdom — 22 Mar 2011 at 19:06:49

Hi I agree with Rose from Manchester! My friend has them and we often read them on our way to school- they are excellent but for GCSE i am taking latin and out of school, Ancient Greek and hopefully Classics. Because they are out of school it would really help if you had one of your fantastic revision guides for them! Please consider!

Red — Wales , United Kingdom — 21 Mar 2011 at 19:07:18

hey people
i would really like you to consider making a Chaucer text guide because lots of people read it at gcse level and have problems with it

please consider

J — Gib, United Kingdom — 21 Mar 2011 at 14:18:32

Hello CGP. When are your A2 Mathematics OCR exam-board books coming out in March?

Ben — Plymouth, United Kingdom — 21 Mar 2011 at 11:37:15

Guestbook Editor: Well, the OCR A2 Maths Complete Revision & Practice book should arrive just before the end of March, with the OCR MEI edition following close behind, right at the start of April (sorry... just a tiny bit later than we originally thought). And that completes our beautiful new A-Level Maths range!

Hey, i bought alot of your books for GCSE, and im thinkign of buying more, probably for my ICT. Anyways, your CGP books are amazing, a life saver aswell. The 360 sciences books are amazing, as i follow them while in class. The maths IGCSE books is a life saver as i had no idea what venn diagrams, shears, matricies and MUCH MORE were. The same goes for the normal mathematics book, and also goes for the geography one!

If you want a revision guide for GCSE and want A*'s GET CGP!

OtherGuy — Manhatten, United Kingdom — 20 Mar 2011 at 16:13:17

Hello guys from CGP! I hope you are having fun writing your books, as they are amazing. When I leave university, can I get a job at CGP?
I'm being serious.
Thanks guys!
p.s - your books smell so nice.
Don't laugh. I'm being serious. Again.

Freddie — Manchester, United Kingdom — 18 Mar 2011 at 19:13:57

Guestbook Editor: Hello Freddie from Manchester! We're always looking for talented graduates to help us make our books, so keep an eye on our 'Jobs at CGP' page when you've finished university. We look forward to hearing from you.

P.S. Our books are scented with the sweet smell of exam success. I'm being serious. This is my serious face.

When will "A2-Level Maths OCR Complete Revision and Practice (MRAR61)" become available? It's halfway through March. Also are you planning on doing single module books?

Isam B — Ilford, United Kingdom — 18 Mar 2011 at 18:54:55

Guestbook Editor: We're expecting MRAR61 to be with us before the end of the month — it should be available on the website by 28th March. We're not currently planning separate module books for A2-Level Maths, but we wouldn't rule it out for the future.

Are you planning on making a Government & Politics book for AS/A2?

Kyoko — Somewhere, United Kingdom — 18 Mar 2011 at 18:11:49

Guestbook Editor: A good politician never gives a 'yes' or 'no' answer. Let's just say that we're focusing our energies on other projects at present.

I Love Assasins Creed

Ezio Auditiore Da Frienze — Sparta , Italy — 17 Mar 2011 at 17:17:46

Guestbook Editor: And I love The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the N64. There's no shame in loving a videogame, unless it starts to interfere unduly with your exam revision/personal relationships. Not that that happened to me, obviously.

i'm new to cgp and was told about it by a colleague of mine, i'm a drama teacher and even though you don't do drama guides you do have a fantastic shakespeare script range.

harry jessop — barnsley, United Kingdom — 17 Mar 2011 at 15:10:51

thanks to you i am able to get an A*

hdt — jbhgiujbh , United Kingdom — 16 Mar 2011 at 14:30:51

I'm doing my AS levels this year, and I can't describe just how much CGP guides have helped with the subjects I'm doing - Chemistry, Physics, Further maths and Business studies, thank you CGP!

Edward — WOLVERHAMPTON, United Kingdom — 15 Mar 2011 at 22:15:16

Hi, you have Biolgoy and Chemistry books for the edexcel 360science syllabus...can these be used for igcse exams?

Rita — London , United Kingdom — 15 Mar 2011 at 20:15:13

Guestbook Editor: The Edexcel GCSE 360Science courses are a bit different from Edexcel's Science IGCSEs. They cover a lot of the same material, but we can't guarantee that the GCSE books would contain absolutely everything you need. Hope that helps.

Hi! I was wondering if you do / are going to do an AQA A AS Psychology revision guide for the new specification that came out in 2009 because the only one that I can find was printed in 2008? Please! You would save me!

Katherine — London , United Kingdom — 15 Mar 2011 at 19:09:21

Guestbook Editor: Consider yourself saved — our AQA A AS-Level Psychology book (PYAR53) is fully up-to-date for the latest courses. (The new AS specification started being taught in September 2008, with the first exams in 2009.) Revise with confidence.

I love your books and i just wanted to ask that on your maths workbook for gcse is there any writing space given or is it just questions

Raphael — Bristol , United Kingdom — 14 Mar 2011 at 22:41:23

Guestbook Editor: Hello! Our GCSE Maths Workbooks are just stuffed with questions, so you'll need a separate bit of paper to write your answers. You can look at sample pages in the GCSE Maths section of this website to get a feel for what the books look like.

Compared to other textbooks it's the best! It's simple plus it's not boring...

Anonymous — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 14 Mar 2011 at 21:50:24

Guestbook Editor: How kind of you to say so. Simple but not boring — that's our mission in life.

I didn't actually think CGP books will be helpful but i couldn't have been any more WRONG! I have purchased the science and maths textbook and am getting the high grades i want!!!

Anonymous — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 14 Mar 2011 at 21:48:10

Do you have A2 Technology revision books? (Edexel)

cathy — newry , United Kingdom — 14 Mar 2011 at 00:48:53

Guestbook Editor: We don't, I'm afraid. Sorry.

I am a KS3 student studying for my year 9 GCSEs and I am finding CGP books very informative but more importantly easy to understand. However, I do believe the acid tests are not hard enough compared to that of CGP workbook questions and other practise papers! I do hope my views will encourage a change even if a slight one and effects others education and I thank you for letting me put my views and opinions across.

Gurjivan — Singh , United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2011 at 23:01:34

Guestbook Editor: Thanks — we always like to have people's views and opinions. The Acid Tests (in some of our GCSE Maths Revision Guides) are just quick questions to make sure you've got to grips with the basics from the page. If you're finding them easy, you're probably on the right track. Good luck with the GCSEs!

CGP you are amazing!!! your science revision guides helped to make my revision more interesting, now just waiting to see if it paid off :)

Bob — London , United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2011 at 21:22:54

Your website isn't great and if a rival website came along you would be out of bussiness and i have just thought while writing this that i will be the one to put you out of bussiness because you guys need to be taught a lesson.
Yours sincerely,

Joel — Grant, United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2011 at 17:36:06

Just wanted to say how I enjoyed the air guitar section in the GCSE Music Study book! ;)

Are any of your books available as e-books, to use on devices such as the Amazon Kindle?

James — London, United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2011 at 15:43:12

Guestbook Editor: We haven't made e-versions of any of our books yet, but we'll keep you posted if the situation changes. *Starts playing air-guitar version of Sweet Child O' Mine. Makes mistake after three notes. Smashes air-guitar into air-splinters and sulks*

Managed to do well in my GCSEs thanks to these books, just wondering what are the plans for any new AS books. I'm taking Politics, economics, french and history.

Ellen — London , United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2011 at 11:06:10

Guestbook Editor: Well, we can't reveal all our plans... but if you're taking Edexcel AS-Level History, we just might have something worth looking forward to in September. (Also, our indescribably wonderful new AS Critical Thinking book is out this week!)

CGP Books are the best for revision guides, but it would really help if you made one for ECONOMICS and SOCIOLOGY for GCSE.

Rahul — Leicester , United Kingdom — 12 Mar 2011 at 18:32:08

CGP Revision guides are probably the BEST you can get - without them i wouldn't have got my A* in one of my GCSE Science exams :D

Kiran — Oadby , United Kingdom — 12 Mar 2011 at 18:30:35

Awesome revision guides! I'm doing my GCSEs at the moment, and my exams will start this May. I think I'm pretty much prepared thanks to CGP :)

Khadijah — Derby , United Kingdom — 12 Mar 2011 at 18:24:40

Guestbook Editor: Awesome! Yes.

what day is the a2 ocr maths being released

Dywer — gateshead , United Kingdom — 11 Mar 2011 at 21:35:21

Guestbook Editor: It's at the printers as we speak — it should be available to buy at the end of March.

Thank you CGP! Your books are so helpful, and we use your science workbooks in my school. The Literature revision guides are also quite helpful.You really helped me in my exams so far, and I just know your KS3 books will be helpful for my Checkpoint exams.

Kiitan Doherty — Lagos , Nigeria — 11 Mar 2011 at 20:18:41

As much as your books have helped me with the GCSE exams i've had so far, i'm quite annoyed by the fact that your Animal Farm text guide comes out in June, and my exam is in May...I needed it because your Of Mice and Men book is really helpful (we're doing a comparison of the two novels for the exam). Good Books but this ones a bit delayed.

Nikki — Guernsey , United Kingdom — 11 Mar 2011 at 19:49:50

i think that this is an good website and why to teach kids who think maths is an hard subject. not just maths, but any other subjects CGP is a good website to learn ... GOOD JOB ! KEEP IT UP ;)

rimsha — manchester , United Kingdom — 11 Mar 2011 at 16:18:25

you mentioned you were working on a revision guide for A2 AQA geography, is there any chance that you will have this finished by June 2011?

Jack Norton — Walsall , United Kingdom — 11 Mar 2011 at 15:35:30

Guestbook Editor: Not much chance, I'm afraid. It's a pretty huge subject, and we want to make sure the book is terrifyingly close to perfection before we publish it. Apologies to this year's AQA A2 Geographers.

(Commenting on book PYAR61, A2-Level Psychology AQA A Revision Guide

The book is really useful as far as A-Level revision is concerned. However you don't include references in this book so I cannot find the original paper for some of the studies that I need to know.

Rose — Leeds , England — 11 Mar 2011 at 12:43:54

Great revision tool! I must admit that I have a special connection with CGP books; they're so cute! <3 P.S. Please visit StudentCreche.co.uk (- the site for students, managed by students) if you want to further your educational experience! :D

KnowledgeIsLight — London, United Kingdom — 11 Mar 2011 at 10:23:03

Guestbook Editor: Thought you could sneak a crafty plug for your website past us just by saying our books are cute, eh? Oh. Looks like you were right.

CGP you've saved my life again and again during exam time at school! Now I'm at college and is there ANY chance of an AS or A2 Spanish guide coming out soon? Please!!? :)

Clare — Brighton , United Kingdom — 10 Mar 2011 at 22:25:07

thanks i know this going to help me i will dedicate something to you when im rich and famous dont thing im joking i love you but get bonus packs like maths and english with bonus science. cgp rocks for life

cem shahin — hackney , United Kingdom — 10 Mar 2011 at 21:02:23

Please could you make a revision guide about 'how to survive high-school?'. THAT would be useful.

Becca — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 10 Mar 2011 at 20:29:28

Guestbook Editor: Yes it would. Most of us social misfits at CGP only just barely survived high school ourselves, so we're probably not the best people to ask.

Your revision guide for Edexcel AS Geography really helped me to acheive an A grade. So i was wondering if you plan on releasing a revision guide for Edexcel A2 Geography by June 2011?

Christopher — Jones , United Kingdom — 10 Mar 2011 at 16:52:56

Guestbook Editor: I'm afraid there won't be an Edexcel A2 Geography book this year — we're working on an AQA A2 book for January 2012, but I guess that won't help you much. Sorry.

really good books :)
think you should publish a gcse italian revision book :P

Emma — Belfast , United Kingdom — 09 Mar 2011 at 17:46:31

Kids do not like books. Kids love their iPods. Why are there no resources available for the iPod?

B Balu — Bedford , United Kingdom — 08 Mar 2011 at 20:27:25

Rock on the "fail jokes" i seem to be the only one in the world but i love them! "Do not chew" on the back of the chemsitry revision guide LOL! Anyways really helped thanks guys, i think you should include a guide (not like a book a webpage lol) to how to work out what AQA science course you are doing on your website our chemsity teacher explained it like this which was MEGA helpful (hope it looks right on here)

B1 + C1 + P1 = Core Science
B2 + C2 + P2 = Additional Science
B3 + C3 + P3
= = = Triple Science
Biology Chemistry Physics (i.e Three

Anyways a few guides to fill in the gaps would be great for me i would love the help of a drama one :)

Jennie — Bexley, United Kingdom — 08 Mar 2011 at 19:44:40

Guestbook Editor: Ooh, thanks for the AQA Science matrix. Unfortunately, the CGP Guestbook has helpfully removed most of the spaces, so it's gone a bit wonky. GCSE Science is a bit of an awkward beast — each exam board has slightly different courses and modules, so we might end up creating more confusion by trying to explain each one in detail. (Glad you're getting a few LOLs out of our jokes, incidentally.)

Dear CGP Thx for you help with my GCSE test i really think you helped alot i think you should reduce your prices because where I live your books are £5.00 but i bought it from my school for less (P.s You actually made me laugh on science edexcel 360 core higher page 100

The earth is an ideal location for life Nom 3 at the end you wrote "Life has had time to envolve intelligence (i.e us) YOU MADE ME Laugh Thus failing what you guys told us you wouldnt do in the front of the book "dangerously close to being funny"

MUAAHAHAAH ive got pinpoint accuracy havent I

Sami Menelik — London, United Kingdom — 07 Mar 2011 at 18:38:51

Guestbook Editor: Indeed — you're like a heat-seeking, laser-guided torpedo of linguistic precision. Great to hear that your GCSE exam went well, and that we finally managed to squeeze a laugh out of you with a non-failing joke. Our work here is done.

I think you should be educatinal games on your website because it is kinda boring

Rosie — Tutshill , United Kingdom — 07 Mar 2011 at 11:01:28

I always used cgp books in primary school and they helped me through my sats. My lil sister now uses them and she loves them too. I just found out youve got gcse ones too. Ill be after some of those. ^_^ xx

Heather — Derby , United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2011 at 22:27:30

Do you know when exactly the revision guides for science 2011 are coming?? :-(

Chris — Rochester , United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2011 at 17:03:44

Guestbook Editor: It's been a nail-biting experience making GCSE Science books this year, since most of the exam specifications are only just being finalised now. But we're on the case — the first wave of Revision Guides and Workbooks should be with you in June. Hang in there.

Thx CGP I just did my second GCSE test and im only 12 i think i did good on this one (PS) Your Jokes Fail recruit me maybe i can help you make them more funny of course there will be a money issue

Sam — London , United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2011 at 13:50:06

Are you going to produce a revision booklet for the OCR Textiles like you have for the AQA? AND are you going to be doing revision guides for the Edexcel Design Tech courses?

Fiona Leyman — Havant , United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2011 at 12:16:38

Guestbook Editor: We've already made a Revision Guide for OCR GCSE Textiles, but we're not planning a matching Exam Practice Workbook just yet. As for Edexcel, only time will tell...

Your books are just so amazing, sometimes I find it difficult to grasp the fact that they actually exist. Not only is the quality of the text superb and easy to understand but the prices are such great value for money!
I love how you spend so much time on personally responding to the messages, its really lovely. Basically I wanted to say a GREAT THANK YOU, life would be slightly impossible without CGP :)

anonymous — London , United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2011 at 00:45:07

Guestbook Editor: Oh, thank you. It's nice to know that we're making people's lives slightly less impossible. And our books really do exist! *Thumps GCSE Geography Revision Guide loudly against desk to prove it*

Your A/S Maths Core 1 and Core 2 books are great. When will you produce a Statistics book for AQA AS Maths?

susan townley — Reading , United Kingdom — 05 Mar 2011 at 14:57:30

Guestbook Editor: Your timing is excellent — we've just released a Complete Revision & Practice book for AQA AS-Level Maths that covers Core 1, Core 2, Statistics 1, Mechanics 1 and Decision Maths 1. There's an A2-Level edition, too. Comprehensive.

(Commenting on book EHRP22, KS2 English SATS Practice Papers (Set 1) Levels 3-5

realy fab !!!

ania — swindon, United Kingdom — 05 Mar 2011 at 08:54:43

Do you think you could maybe work on a play guide or study version of 'Death of a Salesman'? We recently started drama after completing the poetry section, and it is the one we're currently studying.

Abdulla — Madinat Khalifa , Qatar — 03 Mar 2011 at 19:41:34

My school provided a GCSE business studies revision guide & workbook and found them extremely easy to use and were great for revision, so I have bought your books in Physics, Chemistry, Biology & Maths as well.
My other two courses are with the exam board WJEC so i wondered if you do books for them in hospitality & catering and Geography?

Benjamin Smith — Carterton , United Kingdom — 03 Mar 2011 at 18:07:00

Guestbook Editor: Sorry... we don't have WJEC-specific books for those subjects. Yet.

Does the 'Extension Science' revision book cover Triple Science? Does the same apply to the seperate 'Chemistry', 'Biology' and 'Physics' revision guides?

Andrew Lennon — London , United Kingdom — 03 Mar 2011 at 16:41:45

Guestbook Editor: Here's a handy guide to CGP's GCSE Science books in equation form:

Triple Science = Biology + Chemistry + Physics = Core + Additional + Extension

If you're doing Triple Science, the separate B/C/P books are the ones to go for. But if you've already got the Core and Additional books, you'll find all the extra topics in our Extension Science books. Simple, eh?

Will you ever do books at University level?

Dwyer — Newcastle , United Kingdom — 02 Mar 2011 at 16:25:13

Guestbook Editor: I'd say it's unlikely for the foreseeable future — each university sets its own courses, so it'd be very difficult to make books that were useful to a wide range of students. Sorry.

(Commenting on book SXHR41, GCSE Additional Science Edexcel Revision Guide - Higher

I'm using seperate cgp revision guides for all sciences but I m not sure which section goes with which module. Is section one P1, section two, P2??

Barry — Bognor Regis , United Kingdom — 01 Mar 2011 at 22:15:58

Guestbook Editor: Hmm... it sounds as if you're using our 'general' Revision Guides that cover all exam boards. We also make books specifically for the AQA, OCR and Edexcel courses — if you're taking one of these, you can have a cheeky look at the contents pages of these books on this website. They'll tell you which topics you need to learn for each module. If you need more info, our friendly Customer Services team will be happy to help.

I notice the "second" of your latin requests came in before the first...

In jest!

George B — Glossop, United Kingdom — 01 Mar 2011 at 21:29:11

Guestbook Editor: It's harder than it looks, this upside-down job in a back-to-front world. *Weeps*

Only joking — thanks for the eagle-eyed observation. Keeps me sharp.

Have you thought of adding a "Pay Pal" button? A lot of web users have an account easily to hand.

George B — Glossop , United Kingdom — 01 Mar 2011 at 21:25:56

Your books have helped my all my life from primary school up to GCSE's, but I am soon leaving year 11 and going to study in Norway and I was looking at what you offer in language. I see no book on Norwegian, could you do one in the near future as it would help so much and I looked at other ones, not so good.

Zoe M — Wolverhampton, United Kingdom — 01 Mar 2011 at 14:46:01

Guestbook Editor: Sounds exciting — best of luck with your Scandinavian studies. But I'm afraid as far as your book request is concerned, for the time being it's a case of Norway, José...

Amazing books easy and challenging at the same time!
Would buy again
