Guestbook Archive - October 2014
I love your books, but my hardest subject is latin currently and you don't have a latin gcse book! There's only one board that does it nowadays (OCR) so it wouldn't be too hard to put one together... There are just a lot of things I don't understand and could do with being explained to me the CGP way. I think a Latin language one would be more widely required because the literature is too tricky to teach in a book like CGP. It's too late for me as I'm taking the exam this year, but it may not be too late for future years. PLEASE HELP!

Guestbook Editor: What a selfless request. We'd love to help future generations of GCSE students with their Latin, but it's one of those subjects that we always seem to struggle to fit into our schedule. Maybe one day...
In the meantime, good luck with your exams!
yeah basically the games are really hard and should lower the levels but the tests are superb

(Commenting on book GHS43, GCSE Geography Complete Revision & Practice (A*-G course)
I am looking forward to using this book to revise for my geography exams. I find it hard to remember information

Are you planning on producing an English and Science practice book for 13+?
Lisa King — Riebeek Kasteel, South Africa — 23 Oct 2014 at 10:34:11
Guestbook Editor: No plans at the moment, I'm afraid — but we never say never.
Clarification: we actually say 'never' quite a lot. Searching for it on the CGP website returns 21 results.
I want to know why you don't do these books: GCSE Law AQA IGCSE Edexcel thanks
Justine — town, United Kingdom — 20 Oct 2014 at 13:03:11
Guestbook Editor: Unfortunately, we don't currently have enough time and people to make books for every possible subject (there are so many...), so we concentrate on the ones that will be most useful to most students. It reduces the risk of our editors exploding.
We're always expanding our range, though, so it's not impossible that we'll cover GCSE Law in the future.
total awesomeness you have helped me destroy all end of unit tests at school!!

When will you be adding AS Level Spanish Revision Guides??
Usmaan Siddique — Newport, United Kingdom — 19 Oct 2014 at 13:28:17
Guestbook Editor: I'm not sure... but probably not very soon. Sorry.
will you be making any study guides for KS3 History and Geography?
Amanda — Basingstoke, United Kingdom — 16 Oct 2014 at 19:55:06
Guestbook Editor: Yes! Well, not Study Guides as such. But our Complete Study & Practice books for KS3 Geography and History are Study Guides with the added benefit of practice questions for every topic — and each one comes with a free Online Edition that you can read on a computer or tablet. They're out now.
I am still at school but these books are the best for revision and would recommend to everyone as they have a wide array of subjects

Hello. And Bye.
KennethOi — Biel, United Kingdom — 16 Oct 2014 at 09:39:16
Will you be planning on any CIE (Cambridge IGCSE) books to come out next year with all the other new books
Someone — Somewhere, United Kingdom — 13 Oct 2014 at 20:55:19
Guestbook Editor: Not sure about this one at the moment... we'll know with more certainty nearer the time.
I love CGP Books! They make revision less boring and have everything included in my specifications!! The prices are really affordable too!! If you struggle with ANY subject at GCSE level, I would definitely recommend you bought some of the books from CGP.... Saved my bacon a few times!! ??
Lauren — Belfast, United Kingdom — 13 Oct 2014 at 18:18:59
I am so grateful that they exist !!
Emmie — Leeds, United Kingdom — 13 Oct 2014 at 17:02:18
These books really help me study so i can reach my potential i would recommend maths and science as these two are the main subjects that you need to achieve between A* to C. They are also reasonably priced
sophie — birmingham, United Kingdom — 12 Oct 2014 at 15:07:39
really good books
wish i could buy them all
got my gsce's next year so may be ordering some more in the future
bronya — Rushden, United Kingdom — 11 Oct 2014 at 14:37:18
The new books coming out next year for the new GCSE specifications, will they also be good to use for GCSE testing in 2018. Also please make more CIE (Cambridge IGCSE) books for Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Histroy
Someone — Somewhere, United Kingdom — 11 Oct 2014 at 13:31:50
Guestbook Editor: To answer your first question: yes, absolutely. GCSE specifications usually have a lifespan of about five years, so the the new books should cover GCSE exams until at least 2020.
(On a related note, only GCSE Maths, English Language and English Literature will have new exams in summer 2017. for all other GCSE subjects, the new exams won't start until summer 2018.)
Your books are amazing, I have bought all the books you have available for key stage 1 and 2 for my son! Hoping to buy some more in the future!

(Commenting on book SHR32, KS3 Science Study Guide - Higher
Absolutely terrrrific!I have a son who is in year 8 and is quite bright and this satisfied his learning needs. His teacher said these books could compete with gcse grade stuff and that he could apply for an independent school with this knowledge.
Jabuja — London, United Kingdom — 11 Oct 2014 at 08:53:05
Thank you for making igcse revision guides! they are so useful, and i love the new colours and more spaced out layout. it would be good if you made the other with this layout?
Also PLEASE make an economics ocr gcse revision guide!!! there are none!!! thank you for reading :)
anna — birmingham, United Kingdom — 10 Oct 2014 at 22:26:26
Do you plan on making any A-Level books on Government and Politics
Abdul Samed Karadal — London, United Kingdom — 10 Oct 2014 at 00:05:44
Guestbook Editor: No plans at the moment — sorry!
I really like your books, however, I really wish you had supplemental material for practice that goes with each skill level. Students in KS3 need a lot of guided practice to "get", learn and use a concept. The accompanying materials should also tell the student "WHY" something is correct, and give several examples. As an adult learning French, telling me why something is correct, incorrect or used in a particular way, mood or tense is a major asset in helping students understand the nuance of the French language.

These books are soo good they are helping with my revision so much thank you !

(Commenting on book SHR21, KS2 Science Study Book
The new Science curriculum for Year 6 includes Inheritance and Evolution. When can we expect an updated Study Book which includes this topic? Thank you.
Lynn Visser — Palma, Spain — 05 Oct 2014 at 12:12:46
Guestbook Editor: It's already here! The whole of Section 4 in our updated KS2 Science Study Book, SHR22, is devoted to Evolution and Inheritance.
I'm having chips for tea.
Alan Hickman — Slough, United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2014 at 16:30:04
I love your website, it is easy to navigate, easy to order and has funny quips here and there. It made me smile (while I was putting in an order) at the end of a long day. We (the school) love your books too.
veronica bamfield — bournemouth, United Kingdom — 02 Oct 2014 at 14:44:30
Any plans to make books for A-Level Computer Science or A-Level Computing?
Isam B — Ilford, United Kingdom — 01 Oct 2014 at 20:44:09
Guestbook Editor: Yes, we're currently planning to add Computing to our A-Level range in time for the start of the new specifications in September 2015.
Disclaimer: Things don't always go according to plan, so all dates and details are subject to change.
UPDATE: Seems I might have been over-enthusiastic here. A-Level Computing is included in our future plans, but we'd need a very fair wind to have it ready by September 2015.
