These books are great for revision, these have helped me in revision and since I have just started my GCSEs I am looking forward to reading through the CGP books and revising from them. They have great and accurate notes and amazing fonts and colours making me want to carry on reading and taking everything on board. One question, is there a GCSE Geography Edexcel Specification B revision guide? It's just that I don't want to buy revision books from different companies.

Justas Bauras — London, United Kingdom — 28 Jun 2014 at 17:19:31

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for your loyalty to CGP — it's great to hear that you've found our books so useful. We'd love to help you with GCSE Geography, but we don't have any books that specifically cover the Edexcel B course at the moment. Sorry!

This is really helping me especially in science and Maths- lots of funny cartoons!

Ruru — Harare, Zimbabwe — 27 Jun 2014 at 12:45:46

Just wanted to say the CGP books helped so much with my GCSE's! But now i have to do my A-Levels. I was wondering for Geography a-level if there was an OCR spec? You seem to have Edexcel and AQA...

Rachel — Farnborough, United Kingdom — 26 Jun 2014 at 07:56:30

Guestbook Editor: Excellent news on the GCSE front. In slightly less excellent news, we don't have any A-Level Geography books specifically for OCR, but our 'general' AS-Level Geography Complete Revision & Practice book (GHR52) offers pretty good coverage of the OCR course.

really bad books should be done by police

CGP provides the best books for learning and studying!! Love it.

Jone Gouws — Johannesburg, South Africa — 23 Jun 2014 at 15:41:09

These CGP revision books have helped me so much through my GCSEs, and they really are worth buying for anyone who wants to learn everything they need to know without being overwhelmed by loads of writing. I love how the guides are written to be simple and easy to follow, with bite-sized chunks of information that aren't difficult to take in at all, even if you're aiming to revise the tricky stuff for A* grades like I was! The practice questions and exam tips are a god-send as well!

When will ks3 re and music come out?

Adam — London, United Kingdom — 22 Jun 2014 at 08:33:28

Guestbook Editor: As a rough guide, we're hoping the RE book will be available in the Autumn, with Music following in early 2015.

Which do you like baseball or football?
I like bananas.

mike — hongkong, China (Peoples Rep) — 20 Jun 2014 at 07:50:18

Guestbook Editor: CGP loves all sports and fruits equally.

cgp should include a glossary at the back of every book they release

anonymous student — London, United Kingdom — 19 Jun 2014 at 15:40:56

Hi! Your CGP books have been extremely interesting, amusing and entertaining which is a lot different from a lot of other types of revision! Thank you so much your books have been a massive help. Next year my class is starting Italian at GCSE level and I was wondering if there is anything that is coming out that would help us? Thanks again!

Ashleigh — Gloucester, United Kingdom — 18 Jun 2014 at 21:06:39

Guestbook Editor: Hello! Glad to hear we could interest, amuse and entertain you. We can't make any promises about GCSE Italian at the moment, unfortunately, but it's not impossible. Sorry to be vague.

Thank you for your great revision books. They got me through hours of boring revision and helped my maths improve!

someone — england, United Kingdom — 17 Jun 2014 at 18:54:53

BEST REVISION BOOKS EVER! Thank you so much CGP you really helped me pass my end of year 8 science exam i got a Grade A i will definitely use your revision guides you just can't go wrong with them :)

(Commenting on book PRBR61, A2-Level Physics OCR B Complete Revision & Practice

Overall a good book though it is only a revision guide. This means it does miss out a couple of ideas in a chapter or two which aren't essential, but might crop up I the exam. Also, sometimes the units or symbols used don't always match up with those in the formula and data booklet provided by OCR. This can cause some confusion (such as electric and gravitational potential/potential energy being just E or V or Eelec and Velec)
Overall, 4*

S.Bryan — Stafford, United Kingdom — 17 Jun 2014 at 15:59:25

I want to thank you so much for your revision guides!
I'm not a fan of science, and find that it often goes in one ear and out of the other! I have my mock exams in the next few weeks, and I have been revising science from your books, and I love them so much! I would recommend them to anyone! As someone who is a big fan of puns I found the ridiculous jokes absolutely hilarious, and the informal style is perfect for revision. I have a guide for most subjects, and my favourites are the French and Spanish ones- I love them, and the really useful phrases have helped me to secure the A*s I got! These books are great, especially considering how cheap they are, and I am so grateful for them all. Thank you ever so much CGP! (Now, I should probably get back to revising!)

BEAR29 — Wiltshire, United Kingdom — 15 Jun 2014 at 12:37:34

Will there be a ks3 ict book?

Adam — London, United Kingdom — 15 Jun 2014 at 08:45:27

Guestbook Editor: We will be making a book for the new KS3 Computing syllabus, but it won't be out for a while yet. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the book samples. I requested book samples at 3.30 one day and the following day the book samples arrive by courier at school. Thanks!

Adam Whitham — Altrincham, United Kingdom — 13 Jun 2014 at 21:31:19

Hi! I'm sitting my GCSE's at the moment and earlier this year, my whole year group was given one of your revision guides on the novel "Of Mice and Men" for English. I have to say, without it, I would have done much worse! Your book was very entertaining (especially the comic strip) and it made revision much more intersting! Thanks very much!

Méabh — Ireland, United Kingdom — 13 Jun 2014 at 18:18:52

Hi, I am currently taking my IGCSE exams now and with the help of your books they have been much easier than expected. I just want to thank you so much for the amazing books which are so much better than any other others I have used! They explain everything so well and make it so easy to understand, and never miss anything out of the syllabus!! CGP is amazing, thank you so so much! I can never thank you enough

SerenaH — Hong Kong, Hong Kong — 13 Jun 2014 at 10:18:44

Hi... I found the CGP books really informative... They have information, are an easy read and I think it's great how they are updated regularly to fit the curriculum! Yes I know the jokes can be a bit random at times and when I first got into them I was a little disappointed with the informal style, but I get that you can't make books that are everyone's cup of tea! After I got into them I found them great fun and at the end of the day the did what it said on the can very well... They helped me revise! Thanks!

Kunaal — Gupta, United Kingdom — 11 Jun 2014 at 17:56:18

LOL MY NAME IS TIANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tiana — london, United Kingdom — 11 Jun 2014 at 12:43:18

Hello? How are you? I have got my final GCSE exam on Friday - to be perfectly honest, without your revision guides, I don't think I would have survived. Thanks very much.

Also, I am starting my A Levels in the Autumn term, and I don't see anything in my CGP catalogue for A Level Economics. Is there something in the works?

Aaron — London, United Kingdom — 11 Jun 2014 at 10:09:11

Guestbook Editor: Hi — we're very well, thanks for asking. And pleased that we could help you through your GCSEs. Hope the last exam is a success.

We do indeed have something in the works for A-Level Economics... it'll definitely be worth checking back in when you start your course in September.

hello your books are extremely good , however I had a question about how to save your book in my computer except of having it on my cgp account

amir — ealing, United Kingdom — 10 Jun 2014 at 20:55:52

Guestbook Editor: Hello! Our Online Editions can only be used via your CGP account when you're connected to the internet — it's not possible to save them to your computer, we're afraid.

Any books of English language books grammar and writing at senior secondary level?

Godfrey Nkandu — Mansa , Zambia — 10 Jun 2014 at 18:04:41

Guestbook Editor: Certainly — take a look at our GCSE Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar page for more details. We've also got a GCSE English Writing Skills book, come to think of it.

Hi CGP people, I was wondering how you make such 'witty' jokes in my revision guides?!

Alice — Norwich, United Kingdom — 10 Jun 2014 at 14:43:58

When will the new Ks2 Geography, History and computing come out?

Adam Zghoundi — London, United Kingdom — 09 Jun 2014 at 19:07:50

Guestbook Editor: Hello — our new books for Primary History and Geography (KS1 and KS2) are due out in the autumn term. They're going to be great!

There'll be a slightly longer wait for KS2 Computing... more news as we get it.

Your student maths textbooks are so good! However, I noticed you don't have any for further maths - why is this? You really should create further maths student textbooks - they would be a huge success, with me and the other 7 billion people in this world! :D

Mathsgeek — maths town, United Kingdom — 09 Jun 2014 at 19:03:00

Guestbook Editor: A-Level Further Maths is definitely something we'd like to cover — if you can ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE that we'll sell 7 billion copies, we'll have a think about it. Failing that, we might have to wait until the new A-Level courses start in a couple of years' time.

(But if you're referring to the AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths, you'll be pleased to hear that we've got a new Revision Guide and Exam Practice Workbook for that course coming very soon...)

It's no secret that CGP books are excellent. Thus, not surprisingly, your GCSE Maths Complete Revision and Practice guide tops our list of the Top 10 maths revision books: test-study-guides.com/best-gcse-maths-revision-books

Keep up the good work!

Hello...

Ricml — Mount Carey, United Kingdom — 09 Jun 2014 at 00:48:37

Hi there just wanted to say that i love the revision guides! I've used them since yr 6 until now with my AS-levels and i think they're fantastically cheesy for when i'm tired and sooooooo informative! So thank you so much for making these wonderful revision guides and i wouldn't have been able to pass any of my exams without them.
I was wondering if you're planning on making a A-level Decision Maths revision guide, and if so when would it be available?

Chui Yee — Camborne, United Kingdom — 08 Jun 2014 at 20:28:04

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! Glad you've been finding the books helpful. But I don't think we've currently got any plans for a book covering A2 Decision Maths (D2) — sorry.

this book is awesome but more games?

tyler grey — arizona , United States of America — 07 Jun 2014 at 17:06:07

CGP Books are very good. Very heplful and supportive to the student! Good luck CGP!!

DENISIKA — MATARA, Sri Lanka — 07 Jun 2014 at 10:54:27

These "revision guides" are utterly awful. I mean, truly egregious. Completely deplorable in every way. The "jokes" have never once made me laugh, and have never once failed to make me cringe. I'd also like to highlight that in the front of a particular CGP chemistry guide, it says "we've explained it all as clearly and concisely as possible". NEVER SAY THAT AGAIN. These are NOT concise. Each page is crammed full of words, it's almost like trying to read the Bible at times. And then in an attempt to rectify this appalling attempt at an effective revision guide, random words are coloured red or purple, and half the time these don't have any significance whatsoever. For example, "same stuff", and "any" are highlighted on this particular page I am looking at now. What's the point?!

The A Level ones are even worse. They still include those stupid jokes that aren't even anything close to being remotely funny (contrary to the "dangerously close to being funny" that is quoted in a number of these books). We are not babies. We don't care for unnecessary jokes. We want the facts please. Don't saturate your A Level books with this rubbish in future, it makes for a painful experience when trying to revise.

Why these books are so successful completely bewilders me. Either the entire nation's school children are deluded, or they are all on drugs. For anyone who has never used these guides before, please don't. It is futile and a massive waste of money. Never again.

Matthew Metson — Chelmsford, United Kingdom — 07 Jun 2014 at 10:28:18

Guestbook Editor: Ah. We've always known that the style of our books won't please everyone, but there are thousands and thousands of students, parents and teachers out there who love them. And behind their jokey exterior, our Revision Guides are deadly serious about helping you pass your exams. Sorry to hear you're not a fan.

Really good for my a level courses

Lucy — N/A, United Kingdom — 05 Jun 2014 at 10:34:41

The CGP books are amazing however you have absolutely nothing on economics which would be so much help as i begin my AS levels next year and need as much help as possible. Also I cannot fault the head start books to help in between gcse and A level!! Thank you CGP!

Amy — Leeds, United Kingdom — 05 Jun 2014 at 00:26:14

Guestbook Editor: A-Level Economics? You might just be in luck there. Stay tuned for more info...

I just love CGP books! They have helped me all through KS3 and now because of CGP I'm not as worried about GCSE as I initially thought. Can't wait to start year 10 in Sept, with all my new books... :) x

Phoebe — Leicester, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2014 at 19:39:06

the cgp books are not funny or even close to it. revising from these books made me fail all my exams. i will never use these books again!!!

bob — london, United Kingdom — 03 Jun 2014 at 12:56:39

As a teenager, I hate revision. HATE it. But CGP books has helped me to love revision. I hope I do well on my exams because of the revision I've done from these books!

Steph — Langley, United Kingdom — 02 Jun 2014 at 21:26:18

Guestbook Editor: We hope so too — good luck.

Have had books through previous school. Good to know we can get them direct. My daughter has dyslexia and find them really useful. Many thanks for the logical easy format and clear type
