So you do catering but not drama, that's fair isnt it

also there is not history project study AND practice book

i think you need to make some more books.

Annoyed Student — Telford, United Kingdom — 30 Dec 2013 at 18:47:52

Guestbook Editor: We think so too. In fact, making some more books (and digital resources) is what we spend most of our time doing — you can see the latest examples on our What's New page. Sorry we haven't yet got around to the ones you mention above. We'll keep going...

I love the books from CPG for GCSE revision they are easy to understand and use !

with slight odd comments of humour along the way !

Cgp is rude and rubbish

I'm using your books for IGCSE Physics and Biology, which are both subjects I struggle with sometimes, however revision is *actually* fun with the sense of humour that your material brings to my revising sessions. They are also clear, to the point and very easy to understand - thank you :)

Love the books, as im studying for IGCSE! Great books to look at when in despair and have prep due in the next day! Thanks!

At the moment, it is the norm to take 3 a-levels to A2 level and 1 to AS level. How many a levels will students take under the governments proposed changes to linear without the AS counting towards the A2?

Jed — Bridlington, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2013 at 23:26:04

Guestbook Editor: I think I'm right in saying that the number of A-Levels taken by most students will stay the same — that is, three A-Levels plus an AS or other qualification if you're keen. It'll be just like the '90s all over again, but without Noel's House Party. Which can only be a good thing.

The books are wonderful! They help very much when revising for an exam! Definitely worth it!

Simi — Bristol, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2013 at 22:34:35

Fantastic books and outstanding delivery. I ordered Friday and they were here on the Monday. I wish all suppliers were this prompt.

Julie haworth — Bury, United Kingdom — 18 Dec 2013 at 10:09:37

These books are EPIC, I had some in Y2 and improved from 1A to 2A, and in Y4, 2C to 3A and 2B to 4C

Anomynous Lolington — Aarhus, Denmark — 17 Dec 2013 at 18:26:54

Kimia — London, United Kingdom — 14 Dec 2013 at 10:46:36

Really enjoying book.... very useful as well..

Just stopped in to learn a bit about CGP. You present a wonderful view of your culture! I was left with a strong impression of: "Wow ... what a great place to work!"

Stephen Frost — Down Under, Australia — 12 Dec 2013 at 03:43:20

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! It's good to hear that the minions in the CGP propaganda dungeon are earning their peanuts. (Only joking — CGP is such a great place to work that I can make flippant comments like that and feel 90% confident that I won't get the sack.)

At last a website with a sense of humour!

Lorna Dirveiks — Atherstone, United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2013 at 15:24:02

I have used CGP books and materials all the way through key stages, GCSE and A Levels. I even still use the material now for help with my Engineering Degree.

The quality of the material is great and easy to follow. I highly recommend CGP to all students and teachers alike, Lewis.

Lewis — Kendal, United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2013 at 21:04:15

Instead of office chair, package contained bobcat. Would not buy again.

David Savage — Stevenage, United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2013 at 23:04:24

Guestbook Editor: My colleague has just pointed out that this is a reference to the web comic xkcd (I'm a big fan, but had forgotten about this one). My favourite is:

"A strange game. The only winning move is not to play."

Apologies to the rest of the world, who will not find this at all relevant or interesting.

The AQA physics student book is great but it has a few irrelevant topics in the book that aren't in the syllabus such as quark confinement. Why is this?

physicskid — physics town, United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2013 at 20:07:02

Guestbook Editor: I'll hand you over to one of our Physics experts for this one:

"Quark confinement isn’t mentioned on the spec, but it is mentioned in a question in a specimen paper that quarks cannot exist separately. Because of this we thought it would be a useful thing to cover and be another example of a pair production process, which is mentioned explicitly on the spec.

"This Student Book has been made to match the spec and we aim to only cover what you need to know for the exams. These books do however have more explanation and examples in some places than our normal Revision Guides to try and aid understanding. (They’re written to be suitable for use as a classroom study book where you haven’t met the material before.)"

Any chance of a Decision Maths 2 book for AQA? There are very limited resources available. :(

Daniel — Onchan, Isle of Man — 09 Dec 2013 at 16:41:57

Guestbook Editor: It's looking unlikely in the immediate future — sorry. Good luck with it!

CGP is great because of its excellent quality in books and a few humorous jokes that helps make learning fun. I generally think that CGP is a great company, my only problem is that I am looking for a particular CGP book which has English, Maths and Science all in one with the very low price of let's say £4.99 or even £5.99 your choice but that is the only problem I have if you can make that happen I will definately buy your book but it has to go from year four up to year 6 or up to year 8 I really don't mind.

Thank you for reading this comment.

Jacquiline — London, United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2013 at 18:31:16

I would just like to know where can i get the answers to the questions in the cgp core science revision guide to make sure my answers are right for when i do my revisions.

Thank you for co-operation.

Imrana — London, United Kingdom — 08 Dec 2013 at 15:21:48

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we don't generally print the answers for the 'revision summary' questions in our Revision Guides (unless they ask you to do some calculations). The good news is that these questions recap the important facts from the section you've just studied, so you'll be able to find the answers by flicking back through the book.

Really good availability of books, if any one asks me where to buy revision books from, I'll always say CGP!

Just to notify, on the gcse history page, on the schools history project pages example, when you click the image, it appears as modern world history project but the contents is all the information for the school history project

Alice Beck — South Yorkshire, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2013 at 15:32:17

Guestbook Editor: Ah, so it does — sorry about that, and thanks for pointing it out. We'll get that cover fixed asap.

Just to say we can't afford a tutor for the 11+ but your 11+ books are a fantastic alternative, really good explanations and well set out. We've been very impressed so far.
