Bethany Latimer — Liverpool , United Kingdom — 28 Feb 2012 at 17:17:13

I was recently lent a copy of your KS3 Mathematics - The Revision Guide to help me achieve my adult numeracy, I found your guide extremely helpful to improve my knowledge but also was grateful of the humour! I have placed my order today for my two children and I trust they will enjoy your help as much as I did....thanks to you all x

This book is sooooooool helpful tomoz i hve ma test and I bought this lol full of info

Aniqa — Hayes , United Kingdom — 23 Feb 2012 at 19:14:14

Guestbook Editor: I couldn't agree more.

I love your books. The only ones I know that simplifies everything down to the important bits and makes it fun and easy to learn. The KS2 books are the reason why I got top marks on everything! Can't wait to get the GCSE versions!

Nissy — London , United Kingdom — 23 Feb 2012 at 18:39:09

We love your books in our house but please please publish a KS3 set of Spanish books. You've got GCSE Spanish so it would be easy to produce the level below. Thank you!

Janice Tucker — Brentwood , United Kingdom — 22 Feb 2012 at 10:53:18

Guestbook Editor: Key Stage 3 Spanish? I might just have heard somebody whispering about that in the corridor the other day...

(Commenting on book MHW31B, KS3 Maths Workbook (including Answers) - Levels 5-8

this book will really help me with like all the questions and i struggle with percentages and this is the kind of book i need!!!!

emily browne — nottingham, United Kingdom — 21 Feb 2012 at 17:38:01

We bought your science book and I help my daughter revise from it. The tone is just right, the humour fun. If we weren't enjoying these sessions, they would be worse than useless, so thanks for helping us!

Emma Glaisher — Leeds , United Kingdom — 19 Feb 2012 at 13:29:48

In 'How to Revise' or 'Professor Gunning's Erudite Course of Fact Retrieval' by Professor Gunning, it says there is a printable table on this site but I cannot find it - where is it?

Joe — Stockport , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 23:49:43

Guestbook Editor: Ah, yes — it is a bit tucked away. Just head over to the How to Revise book page, where you'll find links to the tables you need.

Just ordered the A2 Core Maths for my son. Great to see that C3 and C4 are in the same book. Good offer from The Times too!

Rose — Pinner , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 18:27:23

Guestbook Editor: Yep, our A2-Level Maths Complete Revision & Practice books include not just Core 3 and Core 4, but also Statistics 2 and Mechanics 2. What a ridiculously marvellous bargain.

Guess what? Have ordered a dozen books for my y11 son to organise his revision. If he uses them he'll be fab and we'll be having Roast Goose and Dumplings for tea! Till then it's just birds-eye potato waffles - they're 'waffly' versatile!!

Mimi — Towie , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 15:19:00

Guestbook Editor: Excellent — there's a lot of exam knowledge in twelve CGP books... but no waffle!

I'm sorry. Management made me say it.

[CGP Management would also like to point out that other brands of potato waffle are available. CGP Books contain scenes of mild comic peril and emotional intensity. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery whilst studying from a CGP book. Do not exceed the stated dose.]

Maths Tutor GCSE Higher Level DVD a fantastic product. Worth every penny. Syllabus much wider and harder than when I took my GCE over 50 years ago. If you had been around then I could have been Prime Minister by now! Well maybe.

Charles Holmes — Coventry , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 11:37:08

Guestbook Editor: It's great to hear that you're pleased with MathsTutor — we think it's rather good too. Our overall plan is to train up a generation of MPs, cabinet members and Prime Ministers who'll make constant positive references to CGP during Commons debates and election campaigns. It's a foolproof long-term marketing strategy.

The books are amazing, truth be told.
But I think the minority subjects are missing out here! You do Critical Thinking and Business Studies, but others go amiss; I myself would really love to see Environmental Studies AS in shops ASAP!
Thanks CGP, keep up the good work!

Joe — Bristol , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 11:34:04

You say we can get a copy of the revision time table shown in the times. Where?

Corinne — Heacham , United Kingdom — 18 Feb 2012 at 11:13:37

Guestbook Editor: Hello — you'll find the tables you're looking for here: How to Revise.

(Commenting on book SHS32, KS3 Science Complete Revision & Practice

i need this book for my homework

Jasleen Kaur — Papamoa , New Zealand — 18 Feb 2012 at 02:15:47

ii love your books SOOO MUCH!!!!!
They help alot! :D..

Rabiia'x — luton , United Kingdom — 17 Feb 2012 at 19:02:18

your game is wrong !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

xcvsad — zacasc, United Kingdom — 16 Feb 2012 at 22:05:55

Guestbook Editor: Aw. I thought our game was tight.

Love your books!
But just wondering whether you'll be expanding the A Level range? WJEC English Literature and AQA History, Government and Politics and Economics books would be invaluable!

Alex Noonan — Ellesmere Port, United Kingdom — 15 Feb 2012 at 23:22:26

Guestbook Editor: You can definitely expect more from our A-Level range in the future. But exactly what and when? That's a secret that's kept in a room at the top of the very highest turret of CGP Towers. It's not locked or anything, so I could probably find out — it's just a lot of stairs, and I'm not as young as I was.

Hey CGP, I want to thank you for your wonderful revision books. They're amazing. The witty comments on subject matter really do help keep the key facts and figures in one's head! I used them for my science, English and maths GCSE's and came out with A*A*A*AAA in those subjects, and I'm gaining confidence in AS maths and chemistry by using your revision books routinely. So thank you, CGP, and keep up the good work! :)

(Commenting on book HWER41, GCSE History, Edexcel A Making of the Modern World Revision Guide

I bought this book last year and it was brilliant for the two modules I was taking. I've come back to it now for help revising my last module and have discovered that it is not included in the book. When buying the book I understood I was to study "War and the Transformation of British Society" but I was not aware that there were two possible modules in this topic - from 1903 - 1928 or from 1931- 1951, however, the second topic - 3B - is not included in the revision guide. I understand that i should have thoroughly checked which topics I was studying, but I believe that it should include all topics on the syllabus.

Maura O'Sullivan — London , United Kingdom — 15 Feb 2012 at 15:03:54

Guestbook Editor: Sorry for any disappointment — for sprawling subjects like GCSE History, we sometimes have to choose to cover only the most popular options (this is mentioned on the contents page of the book). In this case, the British Society 1931-1951 topic didn't make it in.

The CGP revision guides are great! Is it possible that you could make one for GCSE Health&Social Care? If you could that would be great!

Nathan — Thamesmead , United Kingdom — 13 Feb 2012 at 21:39:33

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! It's possible that we'll make a GCSE Health & Social Care book, but it's not on the cards at the moment, I'm afraid.

we just bought the spanish workbook and foudn it be very helpful and so i've now ordered the rest of the range. Comprehensive, easy learning process

d atkins — hartshill , United Kingdom — 13 Feb 2012 at 19:17:51

Guestbook Editor: Glad you're finding the books helpful — comprehensive and easy, that's us.

I like the CGP book so does my kids age 8yr old and 9yr old. The books price is bit high but when you buy £20 or over free delivey does help. This my second time I am ordering!

Nasrin — London , United Kingdom — 13 Feb 2012 at 19:15:03

i like all your books-but i think some of the prices are a bit too expensive

Umamah Malik — bristol, United Kingdom — 13 Feb 2012 at 15:41:30

Guestbook Editor: Putting a price on a CGP book is like putting a price on happiness — it's hard to do. But I've definitely had at least £5.95 (RRP) worth of happiness out of our Edexcel GCSE Physics Revision Guide. It's like the best friend I never had.

Love these books, BTW will you have any GCSE OCR Geography spec A Books coming soon? With Units such as A671: Extreme Environments?

Calum P — Essex , United Kingdom — 11 Feb 2012 at 23:24:49

Guestbook Editor: A671... isn't that the road that runs between Oldham and Clitheroe? It's a pretty extreme environment, I suppose — especially the bit that goes through Padiham. In any case, I don't think we're planning any OCR A GCSE Geography books at the moment. Sorry!

Great range of products i.e. "Maths Tutor" however, it would be great if you could have the same type of product for the Sciences.

Jaishree Gangani — Coventry , United Kingdom — 11 Feb 2012 at 14:53:00

Guestbook Editor: That's a good idea — we could call these products "ScienceTutor", a word with a pleasing range of anagram possibilities (e.g. "Cretin so cute", "O secret tunic", "Ice sector nut", "Nice toe crust", "I rent stucco"... and several that we can't possibly print on a family website).

CGP i absolutely LOVE your books their fun to read and better than most revision guides! =)

Hajira — Luton , United Kingdom — 11 Feb 2012 at 14:35:41

As technophobe parents we found the website easy to use (awkward offspring y10 science!), perhaps a tag saying suitable for triple science would help the aged find the right guides. NOT having haggis for tea tonight. May indulge in a Scottish beverage.

J.J. Shepstone — Maldon, United Kingdom — 11 Feb 2012 at 12:42:47

Guestbook Editor: In fact, all our latest GCSE Science books are suitable for Triple Science — you can choose from:

Biology, Chemistry and Physics
Core, Additional and Extension Science

These two sets of books cover the same content — it's just arranged differently to suit students taking different courses. Sorry to hear that you're not joining the CGP haggis revolution, but we'll accept Irn-Bru as an alternative. It goes with everything. Except fish.

Loving the OCR B Geo GCSE Revision Guide. More importantly the pupils really like it and are requesting it like crazy! Expect more orders soon!

Luke — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 10 Feb 2012 at 15:23:03

found a grammar mistake in the GCSE Biology books for the 2011 course! on page 8 it says 'they're body temperature changes' when it should be 'their body temperature changes' :)

Scott — Harlow , United Kingdom — 07 Feb 2012 at 19:43:35

Guestbook Editor: Good grief, you're right. This has been added to our list of "Tiny Mistakes That Very Occasionally Slip Into Our Expertly Crafted Books", so it'll be corrected at the next reprint. And the proofreader has been given detention.

I love the webBooks and they are awesome, but you should put all the pages in

Remo — Newcastle-upon-Tyne , United Kingdom — 06 Feb 2012 at 17:29:51

Guestbook Editor: Ah, you must be looking at the demo versions — you can buy the complete books by clicking on the 'available now' link on the demo page. They're so beautiful, I could spend hours just flicking back and forth through the pages. *Sigh*

Hi, I love the new webBooks. I think web workbooks would compliment the series in both primary and gcse levels. The MathsTutor dvd is absolutely brilliant too thanks!!

sally — janr, United Kingdom — 06 Feb 2012 at 12:02:04

I am home schooled, and I have the KS3 Maths revision guide, and am finding it very helpful. It is so fun, and easy to use. Thankyou very much.

Abi — Brighton , United Kingdom — 03 Feb 2012 at 09:40:35

Maths is amazing don't you think??

jacey — dagenham, United Kingdom — 02 Feb 2012 at 18:03:54

Guestbook Editor: Yes!

CGP = THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

A — London , United Kingdom — 01 Feb 2012 at 23:23:51

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! Another good equation that features lots of exclamation marks is the one which tells you how many ways you can choose r items from a set of n items (where the order in which you choose them is not important).

nCr = n! / [r!(n – r)!]

Maths is brilliant. Right, guys?


(Bah. I think it's brilliant.)
