Excellent service! Within 5 minutes of accessing the site, I had already purchased a revision guide.

Ben Millbourne — Ashford, United Kingdom — 29 Apr 2016 at 15:15:16

Whenever my mum nags me to revise for any up-coming tests, I always head for the CGP books! Thank you so much CGP crew

Guestbook Editor: Didn't expect that.

Hi there!

Products - Amazing, awesome, incomparable, erm...breathtaking? (Too far??)
Service - Outstanding!!!
Suggestion - I was looking for an option to view my order history but could not find it (probably because there wasn't one). Is it possible for this to be made available, as it would be great for the purposes of viewing what I have purchased in the past as well as recommending 'tried and tested' books to others (by printing a list of what I purchased, instead of searching and then jotting them down one by one)??
Final words: Thank you very much!

Miss.B — WEMBLEY, United Kingdom — 28 Apr 2016 at 18:03:42

Guestbook Editor: Hi! Thanks very much for your comments — you can never go too far complimenting our products (you forgot to add "genre-defining", "paradigm-shifting" and "world-conquering").

Thanks also for you suggestion about adding an order history option to the CGP website. It's definitely something we're looking into...

1. Need to have questions for Scientific Investigations in the KS3 Chemistry, Biology and Physics Revision Guides and Workbooks

2. Need workbooks for KS3 R E and Geography. Need workbook for GCSE RE

Anil — Warks, United Kingdom — 28 Apr 2016 at 14:53:35

these are great for kids

Liam Bearne — hucknall, United Kingdom — 28 Apr 2016 at 14:02:22

Fantastic site with great discounts. Used these books for years, they are great visually and from an information point of view they cover all topics in great detail.

Emma — North Yorkshire, United Kingdom — 27 Apr 2016 at 07:46:03

Any books on becoming president??????

Trump — TEXAS, United States of America — 26 Apr 2016 at 14:37:37

Guestbook Editor: You seem to be doing OK on that score, even without a CGP book.

i fancy this guy, called harrison, any advice on whether we should date?

Tamara Harrison OTP — w, United Kingdom — 26 Apr 2016 at 14:33:59

Guestbook Editor: That's not much information to go on... but I still feel absolutely confident in saying that you're made for each other.

Note: CGP accepts no responsibility for the consequences of their Guestbook Editor's terrible romantic advice.

whts ur fav flavor dorito ...mines danny dorito x

Danny Dorito — Wolverhampton, United Kingdom — 26 Apr 2016 at 14:31:12

Hello, is it me you're looking for? lol jk
CGP was just wondering whether you'd publish my name in one of your books, your jokes are rubbish, think you need better material. So whats better than Lionel Richtea.
P.S. you should put this on your cup of tea page.
P.P.S. Bourbon Freeman is also free.

Lionel Richtea — Wolverhampton, United Kingdom — 26 Apr 2016 at 14:29:52

Guestbook Editor: Bourbon Freeman... didn't he narrate March of the P-P-P-Penguins?

(Commenting on book MHN42D, New Maths for GCSE Textbook: Online Edition with answers - Higher (for the Grade 9-1 Course)

I cannot fault the content of the Online edition. It is clear and concise and makes learning easy. However, you cannot print the content and I personally find it time consuming to navigate through the pages. For this reason I am thinking of buying the book.
The main reason I bought the online edition was the £10 difference in price. So bear in mind my comments above if you are thinking of doing the same.

David — Rennolds, United Kingdom — 26 Apr 2016 at 13:01:45

As a father of two daughters I feel that I have given my two girls the best educational support available purchasing CGP books. The backup support offered within the text of each subject book is both easy to follow and runs alongside their school learning. Great value and well presented.

Robert Wilson — Devizes, United Kingdom — 23 Apr 2016 at 16:17:53

On your AQA Chemistry GCSE Revision Guide, on page 89 (Energy), the top of the page says "hot up". Heat up you mean?

me — london, United Kingdom — 23 Apr 2016 at 15:49:24

Guestbook Editor: I think we were being a bit informal here — as in, "things are hotting up!" Don't tell the Queen.

Excellent service. I have made two orders this week and both have arrived the next working day.

Leigh Knight — Upminster , United Kingdom — 23 Apr 2016 at 10:16:27

What 9-1 GCSE's books should I get? The exam board stuff is confusing

Confused student — Townsville, United Kingdom — 21 Apr 2016 at 14:07:13

Guestbook Editor: Hmm, tough question — it depends which year you're in, and which courses you're taking.

Would you mind emailing us at customerservices@cgpbooks.co.uk with a bit more info? Our team of black-belt GCSE experts will be happy to help.

Hello CGP! I just wanted to say how excellent your books are! I started off with the Letts books and one CGP book and I always looked forward to doing the CGP book! They are soo funny and have clever jokes all over the book that make me laugh! I love it! The Letts books are really informal and complicated whereas the CGP book is like someone is actually speaking to you! Now I have the complete set of KS3 books! Thank you so much for clear, easy and fun books! BEST books by far!

Elodie — Conwy, United Kingdom — 21 Apr 2016 at 13:21:50

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much! We always try to make our books chatty and easy to get your head around, so it's great to hear it's working.

And there are plenty more CGP books to look forward to once you've started on your GCSEs...

KS3 Science, Section 4, Page 51.

Practice Question 1.c.ii is very misleading and is factually incorrect. There are 23 pairs of chromosomes in a human fertilised egg. There are not 23 pairs of genes!

Jo — North East, United Kingdom — 20 Apr 2016 at 11:17:13

Guestbook Editor: That's very true — our apologies, and thanks for letting us know. This will be corrected in future editions of the book.

Did you know that every person i meet to tell them what is the best book for learning ? They end up with saying CGP Thankyou CGP company

Boussad — united kindom, United Kingdom — 18 Apr 2016 at 21:21:29

What is the answer to question Q13 on sequences page 32 as me and my tutor want to know the answer

Jesus — Muscat, Oman — 18 Apr 2016 at 16:56:38

Guestbook Editor: We'd be happy to help... but would you be able to give us a bit more info about which book you're using? If you look below the barcode on the back cover, you'll see a short code (beginning with 'M' if it's a Maths book) — this will tell us everything we need to know. Thanks!

i have ordered 12 books from you guys, when exactly do you guys deliver it?

Ali Reza Ghasemi — London, United Kingdom — 17 Apr 2016 at 16:06:14

Guestbook Editor: Hello — since you ordered on a Sunday, we'll pack up your books and dispatch them on Monday. They should be with you on Tuesday 19th April!

how many exams in triple science are there going to be

abs — London, United Kingdom — 13 Apr 2016 at 20:23:53

Guestbook Editor: This looks like another job for CGP's GCSE Science department. Here's the lowdown on the new Grade 9-1 exams...

"If you're taking three separate GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, you'll take two exam papers for each subject. This is the same for all exam boards."

And for the new Combined Science courses (worth two GCSEs):

"If you’re doing AQA, Edexcel or OCR Gateway, there are six exam papers — two for Biology, two for Chemistry and two for Physics.

"If you’re doing OCR 21st Century, you’ll do four exam papers — one Biology, one Chemistry, one Physics and one ‘Combined Science’ paper which tests everything."


specifically what month is the New Grade 9-1 GCSE Biology for AQA being released

abs — london , United Kingdom — 12 Apr 2016 at 20:14:20

Guestbook Editor: Should be very soon, we hope — almost certainly sometime in May. (The new AQA courses haven't been fully approved by Ofqual yet, so we can't be 100% certain.)

Hi, on page 53 of my aqa AS chemistry textbook (for the 2015 spec), there is a worked example that refers to LiOH and KOH. Are both hydroxides included as a mistake because I'm confused. Thanks

Batman — Gotham, United Kingdom — 11 Apr 2016 at 22:09:07

Guestbook Editor: Holy hydroxides, Batman — you're right.

This is indeed a mistake. The whole example should be about potassium hydroxide (KOH), but lithium hydroxide (LiOH) has slipped in there like the evil side of Harvey "Two-Face" Dent's personality. Wherever it says LiOH, it should say KOH.

We're very sorry about this — it'll be corrected next time we reprint the book.

Ohhh! Very helfpful, thank you... sorry for accusing you, your books are awesome !! :)

me — london, United Kingdom — 11 Apr 2016 at 20:35:33

this is... awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

marvin — enfield, United Kingdom — 10 Apr 2016 at 20:53:12

Any chance of A-Level Computer Science revision guides being made?

Goku — Lancaster, United Kingdom — 10 Apr 2016 at 17:54:08

Guestbook Editor: There's always a chance...

*Disappears cryptically into the mist*

In your cgp physics workbook, page 60 (Forces and Acceleration) question 9 a) ii) The answer does not seem right to me. The driving force should be drawn as 2650N not 2500.

Me — London, United Kingdom — 09 Apr 2016 at 16:21:09

Guestbook Editor: Hello! We collared one of CGP's Physics experts about this, and she says our answer is correct. Here's why:

"The van is travelling at a constant speed of 90 kilometres per hour, so the resultant force acting on the van is 0 N. In order for the resultant force to be zero, the force exerted by the engine (the driving force) must be equal to the air resistance + the friction between the ball bearings, which is 2500 N — this is the answer to 9a)(i). So when you’re drawing the forces acting on the camper van, the driving force is 2500 N. 2650 N is the maximum driving force, which the van is not applying until part c)."

Hope that helps?

Our class was given the CGP revision guides for GCSE Science (Higher and additional) by our school. They are all you need to revise as they have all the information (and more) that you need for your exam. I also love the language that is used in these books as well as it makes the revision much less boring! I don't think i would have passed GCSE Science without them.

Alex — Chester, United Kingdom — 06 Apr 2016 at 16:41:53

A-Level Year 1 & AS Chemistry (Exam Board: AQA) Revision Guide (2015 spec onwards). Page 59. On the exam tip - "If you're answer..." should be "If your answer...". Aside from that, the guide is amazing.

Anonymous Year 12 — Diagon Alley, United Kingdom — 05 Apr 2016 at 16:26:40

Guestbook Editor: Oops, that's an embarrassing slip — we'll get it fixed. Glad it hasn't ruined the whole book for you. Thanks!

Thank you :) Also BTW Is there going to be a new citizenship book?

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 04 Apr 2016 at 22:53:11

Guestbook Editor: You're welcome. No plans for a new Citizenship book at the moment, though, I'm afraid.

I am a private tutor. I teach creative writing skills and comprehension. I get learners to use their imagination and creativity in a visual way. But it is not easy for some as they find it hard to process creative thinking and visualization. I feel there could be some more support material for this, could you consider a creative writing book. There is a lack of them I feel.

Barbara lee — London, United Kingdom — 04 Apr 2016 at 17:21:18

Basically Im currently in year 9 and I am buying new revision books now and I'm not sure which ones to get as some books dont have the new specifications so do I order now or...

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 04 Apr 2016 at 00:28:24

Guestbook Editor: Don't panic! Our new books for the Grade 9-1 GCSEs are coming soon, and you can pre-order many of them now, including Science, History and Geography, Modern Foreign Languages and Computer Science, Music and PE. Just give us a call on 0800 1712 712 or send an email to orders@cgpbooks.co.uk with a list of the books you'd like.

And of course, our Grade 9-1 GCSE Maths and English ranges are already out.

Do you have a Geography Higher AQA Workbook available WITH the answers included? Or do I have to buy them separately?

Finesa — Saciri, United Kingdom — 02 Apr 2016 at 14:42:51

Guestbook Editor: Hello — the answers for this Geography Workbook are only available in a separate booklet. Sorry!

(reply to my comment below)
Yes, that is true, but the question states an OVERWEIGHT PERSON which SUGGESTS that the person has a higher proportion of fat to muscle. I believe that both higher and lower should be correct but the question isn't specific to a person with a higher fat to muscle ratio or to a person who is physically bigger. How am I supposed to know which one you mean?

Finesa — London , United Kingdom — 02 Apr 2016 at 13:41:05

Guestbook Editor: You make a good point — this question could definitely be worded better. I'm a bit confused myself, about this question and in general.

We'll make a note to tighten this wording up next time we reprint the book. In the meantime, award yourself a mark for either answer with CGP's official blessing. Thanks for pointing it out.

In the Key stage two 2016 sats question book advanced level for maths, I have found an error. On page 23 on Fractions, question 5, the equivalent fraction is 32/36 and 39/36, but the answers say it is 24/36 and 39/36... 8 times 4 is not 24!

Joshua Beckett — Burgess Hill , United Kingdom — 01 Apr 2016 at 13:42:47

Guestbook Editor: You're absolutely right. Sorry about that. We will make sure this error is corrected at the next reprint.
