Best Study books ever! Have used them to help my 3 Children and now I use them at school. Keep up the good work!

I teach my son at home and your books are by far the best we've come across, a sense of humour goes a long way. Thankyou for being the antidote to dry, boring textbooks!

This website was excellent. My students loved it when I played the games with them.
Thanks CGP, you're great,

I found this website very useful and I love the way the books put it simply so everyone can understand, However I wish there could be a philosophy of religion and ethics books in the AS/2 sections as I feel this would be very useful for lots of younger people to get their head around the concepts,as in your other books you do put the ideas/concepts nicely. I feel that this would be so useful and a great section to your collection as more and more colleges/sixth forms are offering this subject. Would you ever consider this?
Amy — Telford, United Kingdom — 24 Jan 2015 at 16:32:32
Guestbook Editor: Hello — thanks very much for your comments. We'd certainly consider Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, but I don't think it's a subject we're working on at the moment. We're currently being kept busy by the upcoming GCSE and A-Level changes, so it's unlikely we'll have a PoR&E book in the foreseeable future. Sorry!
Please, please, please make an A-Level Further Maths book!
Also, could you tell me if the current A level science books will match the 2017 A level exams? I heard that the exam are changing, and I'm finishing GCSEs early and will probably look at the a level curriculum next year, so will the current books be okay?

Guestbook Editor: Please, please, please
Let me get what I want
If Morrissey had been pining for a CGP A-Level Further Maths book back in 1984, he would've been out of luck*. But since you're not starting your A-Levels till next year, we might be able to help you — watch this space.
As for A-Level Science, we're currently working on a whole range of updated books for the new exams starting in 2017. They'll be out this spring/summer if you can hang on till then? Good luck with the GCSEs in the meantime!
*CGP apologises for this hopelessly outdated pop-culture reference from their dilapidated Guestbook Editor.
Great resources for students. Very easy to understand, very colourful and Jokes funny

Where can i possibly find the answers for the level 6 maths book, please say asap as my student needs to check his work
Jailur Rahman — London, United Kingdom — 19 Jan 2015 at 20:36:01
Guestbook Editor: Hello — all our Level 6 Maths books include answers at the back (except our new Level 6 Maths SAT Buster, where the answers are included on pull-out pages in the centre).

Muhammad Kashif — Lahore, Pakistan — 17 Jan 2015 at 12:27:24
The books are excellent value for money but I'm particularly impressed by the speed of delivery. Thank you.
John — Basingstoke, United Kingdom — 16 Jan 2015 at 15:52:02
Thank you so much for a helpful team and a speedy response.
Anne Bates — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 15 Jan 2015 at 15:14:36
Can I find the answers to the questions anywhere?
Daria — London, United Kingdom — 15 Jan 2015 at 10:15:44
Guestbook Editor: We don't publish answers to the questions in this Critical Thinking book, I'm afraid. You'll find most of the answers by looking through the study notes, but some of the questions are very open-ended — we didn't feel it'd be helpful to supply template answers for these ones.
I love using these books as they are simple and easy to understand. I do better in my exams because of them as I can revise and understand what I'm reading.

I am really happy on my purchase after reading all these great comments on the product and service.
It makes be feel like I have made the right choice with the large order for my kids. Just waiting for the toast to spread the honey on lol...
One more thing I would like Cgp to make dictionaries on subjects the Collins!

Is there a mistake in the maths tutor videos? On topic 64 Trigonometry part b? It seems you didn't use a right angled triangle to complete your answer. Please explain to me the answer if I am wrong. Many thanks.
Oli — Bradford, United Kingdom — 10 Jan 2015 at 11:01:58
Guestbook Editor: We've had a look at this video (part (b) of the worked exam question in Topic 64), and it looks ok to us. Here comes some maths jargon...
To find the distance RS, we've used the triangle QRS — which is a right-angled triangle (the angle QSR isn't marked on the diagram, but you can see/calculate that it's 90° because angles on a straight line add up to 180°). So you can work out the angle PRQ using your answer from part (a), then go ahead and use trigonometry as usual.
all your books are great, however im not quite sure whether i should buy a revision guide or a complete revision guide and practice.
could you please tell me which is better and whether or not both of them have the same information in them.
akbar — london, United Kingdom — 09 Jan 2015 at 16:49:41
Guestbook Editor: Generally speaking, our Complete Revision & Practice books contain the same study notes as our Revision Guides. But the Complete Revision & Practice books also contain practice questions and test/exam-style questions for every topic (with answers) — and many of them include at least one mock exam paper.
So it depends what you're looking for: just revision notes, or revision notes and loads of practice questions to test your knowledge. The choice is yours!
I use these books with my students, especially as the online version can be used on the whiteboard, which is great. Unfortunately to give them an exercise, I cannot download a page, so have to photocopy the book which is annoying.
Lynne Hoyle — Blackpool, United Kingdom — 09 Jan 2015 at 14:01:17
Your revision books are invaluable for our students. We have recently purchased the 'Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar for GCSE' for all our Year 10 and 11 students. Please could you publish an online version of the 'Answer book' so that we can display it on the Interactive Whiteboard in class. We have the printed versions but an online version would be even better. Many thanks.
Caroline — Hawarden, United Kingdom — 09 Jan 2015 at 11:10:57
These have helped me learn things that i dn't understand and i wouldn't get the good grades without these easy to understand books.
Coral Wright — North lincolnshire, United Kingdom — 08 Jan 2015 at 20:34:46
I just got in. My comments will follow shortly after I've read the books. Their covers are great but let's not judge them by their covers, right?
