Where can I get these books from in doha??

nisma — doha , Qatar — 29 Sep 2011 at 17:30:42

Guestbook Editor: There are a couple of bookshops in Doha that can order CGP books for you. Just send an email to our customer services team — they'll be happy to send you the details (the email address is at the top of this page).

I am a retired teacher who often used CGP books and now I'm a student of German so I thought I'd treat myself to some CGP German books. I've only just submitted my order so haven't got my books yet but I just had to say I love this organisation. Their books are great and I just love their sense of humour. The comment below this box is a good example!

Anne — Broughton , United Kingdom — 29 Sep 2011 at 16:35:06

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much for your comments — your German books should be with you very soon, so we hope they'll be helpful to your studies. (At this point, I ought to say something witty to demonstrate the CGP sense of humour, but unfortunately I used up all my jokes in a GCSE Business Studies Revision Guide two years ago. I haven't said anything remotely funny since. Sad story.)

This book was amazing and helpful and helped me pass my geography exam

Lauren — manchester , United Kingdom — 28 Sep 2011 at 18:09:17

can you please make a GCSE leisure and tourism book or even a travel and tourism book

Emiliee — Solihull , United Kingdom — 28 Sep 2011 at 08:44:27

OMG these books are like... SO good!
I ordered a bunch for my AS levels but i was totally bummed to find that there wasn't one for English Literature... DO ONE PLEASEEEE
I need these books!!!

Shanise Mamadoo — essex, United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2011 at 19:59:27

Guestbook Editor: Ace — good to hear you're finding our AS books useful. We don't have any general Revision Guides for AS English Literature at the moment, but we do have brand new A-Level Text Guides for The Great Gatsby and Hamlet if you're studying either of those. There's also an Othello Text Guide on the way in January. OMG.

As per the message when I ordered from you, I am having ham, eggs and chips for tea tonight.

Oh yes, almost forgot, your books are amazing!

Mark — Westward Ho! , United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2011 at 17:17:29

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for keeping us informed — we like to monitor people's eating habits. For scientific purposes, of couse. Ham, egg and chips sounds like an excellent choice. Oh, and enjoy the books!

I've read the previous comments, and you really need to get cracking on that A2 Geography Revision Guide. It would be extremely useful please!

Helen — Dorking , United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2011 at 15:59:01

Guestbook Editor: We'll do our very best, but we can't make any promises on A2 Geography at the moment. Sorry!

Wow! I am so impressed with your service. I ordered 2 books yesterday at 4pm and they were with me before midday today. so many companies promise good service but they don't live up to it. The books look great, I've had a quick flick through them and I'm looking forward to son getting home so he can get started. Thank you so much.

Donna Hill — Bideford , United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2011 at 13:23:41

The GCSE books are fantastic. I learned the books and got straight As. That was 9 years ago and now I am ordering the primary books for my teacher training. The revision guides have only the relevant information, they are colourful and the jokes at the bottom are a little reward for learning a page. I would highly recommend them to anyone who likes their revision notes in note form. I hope the primary books will live up to my memories of the GCSE books. Thanks CGP!

(Commenting on book IHR22, KS2 ICT Study Guide

Doesn't show inside of the book which is very diffcult to buy the book.

Hamda — Hounslow , United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2011 at 12:23:56

Guestbook Editor: Ah, sorry about this — we put sample sections from all our new books on the website now, but there are some older ones that we haven't caught up with yet. We'll keep working through them...

hello iam really pleased with the CGP books that i recently purchased and hope to buy more but i need your help i dont know which science books to buy which are best for triple science on the AQA board plz help soon

Mariy Rani — Sutton, United Kingdom — 26 Sep 2011 at 23:18:57

Guestbook Editor: Hello! If you're taking triple Science with the AQA exam board, we'd recommend our separate AQA Biology, Chemistry and Physics books. Just head over to our GCSE Science section to see what's on offer. If you need more info, just email our friendly customer service team at the address at the top of this page — they'll be happy to help.

Could you please make an A2 geography revision book? Its disappointing that you don't already have one when all your other books are so helpful!

Amy — Bournemouth , United Kingdom — 26 Sep 2011 at 15:05:11

i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your books

muj — london , United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2011 at 20:40:50

Great Guides, they are really useful. Would you think about putting out an e-book or PDF format so I could bring all my guides with me on my iPad. That would just make it the best guide out there!

Jared — Newton Abbot, United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2011 at 20:25:53

Hey guys....your books are just absolutely fantastic. I was just wondering whether you have any books for GCSE Sociology in store, my daughter is taking the exam later this year. THANKS

LULU — WEST MIDLANDS , United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2011 at 18:05:02

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much — glad you like the books. We don't currently have anything in the pipeline for GCSE Sociology, but it's definitely something we'll keep in mind for the future.

Do you have any books for GCSE Sociology? I can't find them anywhere!!!

Khalid — West Yorkshire , United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2011 at 17:59:11

Guestbook Editor: We don't have any books for GCSE Sociology at the moment, I'm afraid. But after two requests within ten minutes of each other, maybe we should think about it...

Are you planning on making any AQA A2 Geography revision guides, and if so when will they be released? I used the AS revision guide and I got an A so an A2 version would be most appreciated!

Martin — Crawley , United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2011 at 16:39:27

Guestbook Editor: A2 Geography is something we'd really like to cover, but it's looking unlikely that we'll be able to release a book for it within the next year, unfortunately. Sorry about that — hope the A2 goes well.

you guys are just AWESOME !! :D

Enilla Ansari — London , United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2011 at 20:52:10

Guestbook Editor: YEAH! THANKS! WOO!

Sorry, got a bit carried away. Your enthusiasm is infectious.

I love the books and the website is so fun.
My friends and I love to study using it

Enilla Ansari — London , United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2011 at 20:51:08

Why is there no fab cgp books for AS/A2 French? My son got great gcse grades with your help, disappointed we can't continue into Yr 12 with assistance from cgp! Out of his four A levels you only cover 1 of his subjects :-(((

Tracy — Anonchester , United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2011 at 10:12:08

Guestbook Editor: We're sorry we don't have any AS/A2 French books at the moment. Our A-Level range is expanding all the time (we've made new books for A2 Maths, AS History and AS Critical Thinking this year alone), but we haven't got as far as Languages yet. We'll definitely keep it in mind for the future.

Used your books many years ago with number 1 child, quite simply, they were life-saving, and thus life-changing! Here we go again, with 2nd child. Your books make it so painless, for both parent, and child, and we love each other again. Many thanks...(curry for dinner tonight!)
Grateful thanks,

Marble genie — Ickleford, United Kingdom — 21 Sep 2011 at 12:19:00

Guestbook Editor: That's great news — we're all about love here at CGP. Well, love and heads-down, no-nonsense, back-breaking exam revision, of course. But mostly love. Enjoy the curry!

When will the A2 geography book be released?

connor — london , United Kingdom — 20 Sep 2011 at 20:27:26

Guestbook Editor: Unfortunately, we don't currently have a release date for an A2 Geography book — it's something we'd really like to do, if only there were enough hours in the day...

your customer service is simply superb!!! never though it will be at my doorstep sooooooooooo fast! I am over the moon! thank you soo much!!

Sue — KL, Malaysia — 19 Sep 2011 at 12:24:42

Hi! I love the CGP books:) I have lots at home! I love the funny jokes and colour in them! They are easy to understand! That is why I buy CGP books rather than any other! And the price is awesome, too! Nitrates are cheaper than day rates;) I was just wondering will you release an AQA RE shortcourse book any time before next year? Please reply! I am in desperate need of one ASAP! Also, do you have an edexcel maths higher two tier book coming out soon???? HELP!! :)

CGP Fan — Revisionville , United Kingdom — 19 Sep 2011 at 11:52:44

Guestbook Editor: Hello! Thanks for your comments — it's great to hear you're a fan of the books. I'm afraid we're not making a book for AQA short-course GCSE RE at the moment, so we can't help you with that before next year, unfortunately. We're not quite sure which Maths book you're looking for, but we do have Revison Guides for Higher-Level Edexcel GCSE Maths (both Modular and Linear). You'll find them in our GCSE Maths section.

(Commenting on book SHR21, KS2 Science Study Book

This book is .................................crazy cool.

Do Hoang Son — Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam — 19 Sep 2011 at 11:36:54

d'you reckon it's possible to achieve A* grades with your AS Science revision books? I could solely using your books at gcse but I don't know if AS is a little different? thanks bbz

Jazmine — Lancaster , United Kingdom — 15 Sep 2011 at 23:09:50

Guestbook Editor: We're confindent that our A-Level Science books cover everything you need to revise to get top grades, but we'd recommend using them alongside the work you're doing at college. (Technical detail: you can't get an A* at AS-Level alone — it depends on doing really well in both AS and A2.)

Hi, love your books - have used them for years with my Y6 classes. I've written some spelling stories to go with your SAT Buster Y6 Spelling Book. I was wondering if you'd like to preview a few. These stories contain spaces for all 25 words from each set in your book and a written in a SAT style.
Let me know and I can email them to you for your perusal.

Richard — Plymouth, United Kingdom — 15 Sep 2011 at 19:57:14

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much for the offer of the SATs stories. We're not specifically looking for any KS2 English material at the moment, but if you're interested in writing for CGP, take a look at our writing jobs page for more information and contact details. Thanks again!

I love CGP books. There's a random page about Cows in the AS Maths one I found hilarious!!! LOVE the funny remarks, keep 'em coming for A2!

Anonforever<3 — Yorkshire , United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 22:52:14

We invested in your complete revision guides for GCSE maths, core science, additional science,english and geography. ...It was indeed money very well spent. I wish you did AS economics and more for AS english literature!

Ayo — London , United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 22:34:06

I've used your revision guides for both my GCSE's and AS levels, however you haven't published one for Geography A2. Will there be one available before summer 2012? if you even plan on doing one.

Tom — Smith , United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 20:45:13

Guestbook Editor: An A2 Geography book is on our list of things to do, but we can't currently say if and when it'll be coming out. It's unlikely to be ready before summer 2012, unfortunately.

Hiii there i really enjoy your books
especially reading the funny phrases byy the barcode..
Thanks a bunch

maira — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 20:10:54

omg, I knew I'd struck gold the day I turned the cover of my very first CGP revision book.

Paullette — Essex , United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 18:00:24

Guestbook Editor: Ah, you must have one of our early editions. We had to stop printing the books on gold after a while. It's a lot more expensive than paper, it turns out.

(Commenting on book PRAR71, AS/A2 Level Physics OCR A Complete Revision & Practice for exams until 2016 only

Hi I had the separate AS and A2 revision guides for this course (OCR Physics A) but I gave them to a friend when finished the A Level course. However I would like to replace them as I thought the content was great and think they will be good for future reference.

My question is this, is this book simply the AS&A2 books put together ie. with the same content (same pages etc.) or is the content different?


J Kimble — London, United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2011 at 13:17:42

Guestbook Editor: It's a true friend indeed who gives away his CGP revision guides. To answer your question, our combined A2/A2 books (like PRAR71 here) have exactly the same content as the separate AS and A2 editions, all bundled into one pleasingly weighty tome. Enjoy.

Hi, I am currently an sixth form student studying my A2 year in Geography, I have used your revision guides in every subject since I was in year 10 - which has been quite a few if I'm honest, but I have just noticed to my surprise, that you don't have any A2 humanities revision guides, firstly why, and are there going to be any in the near future, as, if I'm honest, I rely on these books for 100% of my revision :S

Kayleigh — Warwickshire , United Kingdom — 13 Sep 2011 at 19:18:44

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for being honest. We'd really like to cover more subjects at A2-Level, and it's something we're working towards. Humanities subjects tend to be quite complex, with loads of different topics to choose from, so it's a big job to make books that are helpful to a wide range of students. Good luck with your revision!

I enjoy teaching my 8 years old daughter.
Education is the key to success, progress and happiness.
Your books contain everything that parents look for their kids in climbing the ladder of Education.
Now my daughter is happy with your step by step teaching books.
I wish your company more progress in developing education.
Thank you very much.
Best Regards,
Raiad Ibrahim Basma.

Raiad Ibrahim — Basma, United Kingdom — 12 Sep 2011 at 23:03:17

Hi, will you have the following revision guides ready before January 2012 or even a couple of weeks before the 2012 A level summer exams?
A2 the study of Othello
A2 & AS English Literature (NOT language)
Oh and what does CGP actually stand for? I bet no one's asked you that before.

Tayler — Hillingdon, United Kingdom — 10 Sep 2011 at 10:12:04

Guestbook Editor: Hi! Our new A-Level Text Guide for Othello should be out in January 2012, so that's something to look forward to in the dark post-Christmas months. No plans for more general AS & A2 English Lit revision books at the moment, though. Sorry.

CGP actually stands for Coordination Group Publications. People do occasionally ask us this, but the answer never gets any more interesting. Ho hum.

i absolutely love these books if it wasn't for them i would've been living on the streets by now tttthhhhaaaaaannnnnnnkkkkksssssssss

khawla begum — bradford, United Kingdom — 09 Sep 2011 at 22:53:51

My 16yr old daughter has always found your books helpful and we order them regularly (she's just ordered some AS and A level revision books. Our 14yr old son has started his 'GCSEs' but is studying the new IGCSE exams across nearly all subjects. Do you plan to cover these new courses?

karen — Christchurch , United Kingdom — 09 Sep 2011 at 15:03:53

Guestbook Editor: We're very pleased to hear you've found our books useful. On the IGCSE front, we currently have books for IGCSE Maths (for the Edexcel and Cambridge exam boards). We'd love to cover more subjects in the future, but we don't have any definite dates at the moment, we're afraid.

Your books are amazing - I love the humour that goes alongside the serious learning and study - fantastic value as well. I'm a parent of a 9 year old and also a secondary school teacher and can't recommend them enough.

Richard Fox — Telford, United Kingdom — 08 Sep 2011 at 19:32:14

very good service I ordered books for my exams and they came in 2 days. I received my books very fast and the modules we are doing in school are based on the GCSE Science OCR 21st century books and they are amazing. I got so ahead in class because of these revision books. i think i will be buying only these books from now on because i bought other ones which really didn't help me at all.

Priyal Khambhaita — London, United Kingdom — 08 Sep 2011 at 18:09:14

Im doing AQA higher tier Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Which book(s) is right for me that would last yr 9, yr 10 and yr 11

Patel — Townsburgh , United Kingdom — 08 Sep 2011 at 09:00:17

Guestbook Editor: Hello! We'd recommend our brand new books for AQA Biology, Chemistry and Physics — they cover everything you'll need for the whole Higher Level course. Just head over to our GCSE Science section, choose your subject, then click on the 'Year 10' signpost.

Do you plan on releasing an A2 geography guide any time before the 2012 summer exam? The AS Geography revision guide (AQA) was very helpful last year for helping me achieve an A grade =) So it would be great if there was one coming out for A2.

Sam Woodcock — Dereham , United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2011 at 23:22:44

Guestbook Editor: I'm afraid an A2 Geography book is looking unlikely before Summer 2012 — we're flat-out working on other life-enhancing projects at the moment. Sorry about that — hope the A2 goes well.

Your books are amazing, have had them since I was 5, now I'm going into Yr11 and have them for all my GCSE subjects. Keep making them so I can carry on using them in my A-levels :D

Hannah — Oswestry , United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2011 at 20:00:25

Your books helped me amazingly through all my GCSEs. Bought them for pretty much every subject and did really well. Bit disappointed though that for A-Levels you only do books for two of the subjects I'm doing. Please make some more, we need them! :)

Will — London, United Kingdom — 06 Sep 2011 at 18:21:06

Hey guys, love your books. Was just wondering though, will you be bringing out an AS/A2 Level Computing revision guide anytime soon?

Tom — London , United Kingdom — 06 Sep 2011 at 18:14:20

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! No plans for A-Level Computing at the moment, though, as far as I'm aware. Sorry.

I was wondering why none of the A Level courses have any practise paper packs; these would be absolutely amazing - a god-send, in fact.

Mark — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 04 Sep 2011 at 20:29:55

Guestbook Editor: We're sorry we don't have any A-Level practice papers at the moment, but our A-Level books all contain exam-style questions for every topic to help you prepare for the final tests. (And if you're doing AS or A2 Maths, our Complete Revision & Practice books for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and OCR MEI all contain two full practice tests for each module.)

A very refreshing website. Entertaining, informative, and easy to use.


Calvin — Teddington , United Kingdom — 03 Sep 2011 at 17:26:46

A couple of years back, CGP saved me. They saved me from a complete and utter failure of a science test which was quite important. They have also saved me in a math exam.

Now, I'm a software designer. I cannot thank you enough, CGP!

Ben Duncan — London, United Kingdom — 02 Sep 2011 at 22:59:53

Guestbook Editor: Glad we could help you out — your success and happiness is all the thanks we could ever ask for. *Bursts into tears*

I just bought the CGP book I have searching for so long, and I am so happy because it is very hard to find a book store that actually sells these CGP books. Even better, I got the one that is board specific! thanks again.
