Guestbook Archive - May 2016

I just want to say thank you so much for all of the books I've recieved today. What a great service!

ayuaasha — AlKhor, Qatar — 29 May 2016 at 07:03:39

Is it me or do the new AQA science specification names "synergy" and "trilogy" sound more like team names on The Apprentice than names for science GCSEs?

Mike — Newcastle-upon-Thyme, United Kingdom — 28 May 2016 at 20:34:30

Guestbook Editor: It's definitely not just you. AQA really smashed it out of the park when coming up with those names.

Help! Love your An Inspector Calls - The Text Guide, but I really, really need one on the Merchant of Venice. Any chance soon?

Ollie — Bedford, United Kingdom — 28 May 2016 at 19:14:01

Guestbook Editor: Probably not very soon, sorry. *Bridge of Sighs*

The books I ordered late on Sunday evening have arrived today (Tuesday) as promised. Stunning service. I've got enough bed time reading now to cure even the toughest case of insomnia, lol
PS. I am in no way, shape or form suggesting that your books are boring. :o)

Barry Chadwick — Doncaster, United Kingdom — 24 May 2016 at 15:52:20

Guestbook Editor: Good news — sweet dreams.

Where do you get your humor from, do you add in your own little snippets into the book, 1 gig at a time?

Sam — Mordor, United Kingdom — 23 May 2016 at 21:40:47

Guestbook Editor: Yes, our multi-talented editors add in their own jokes as they're putting the books together. Most of them are nervous wrecks by the age of thirty.

Hello, can you please tell me the differences between the 9-1 science revision guides and the AQA student books. Also what books should I get because I'm doing Triple Science.
Thank you

murtaza — london, United Kingdom — 23 May 2016 at 17:44:34

Guestbook Editor: Hello! Here goes...

Our Revision Guides are brilliant for revising (hence the name) — we generally cover each topic on a single page, with all the info you'll need for the exams. The new Grade 9-1 Science books also have practice questions on each page to test you on what you've learned.

The Student Books are more in-depth, making them a good choice if you want a book you can refer to for help as you're working through the course. They have detailed study notes, examples, practice questions, exam-style questions, tips on every page and sections devoted to Working Scientifically, Maths Skills and Exam Skills.

For Triple Science, you'll need the separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics books (not the 'Combined Science' versions).

Hope that helps?

having heard of these books need to get for my son will advise my students to get aswell

Anjum Hussain — luton, United Kingdom — 23 May 2016 at 12:37:28

Your books are just ace as well as being genre-defining, paradigm-shifting and world-conquering. I think I read that somewhere! Is it really sad to use your books as bedtime reading? Don't tell me if it is please.

Barry Chadwick — Doncaster, United Kingdom — 22 May 2016 at 20:38:21

Guestbook Editor: Sounds like a fine bedtime habit to me (I prefer to curl up with a Barbara Cartland myself, but each to their own).

(Commenting on book GHR43D, GCSE Geography Revision Guide - Online Edition (A*-G course)

This book seems like a good, factual companion for the student. Is there only GCSE Geography? I am taking my Year 7 exams soon and really need something to help me get my head around rivers and flooding, especially those complicated bits like having to link concepts and causes. Aargh! ;)

Marianna — Cambridge, England — 22 May 2016 at 08:55:39

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we have a Complete Revision & Practice book for KS3 Geography which will cover everything you need. It even includes a free Online Edition!

(Commenting on book EGA31, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar for KS3 - Answers for Workbook

I wish you could download the online edition but not get a book.

Samuel Burley — Essex, United Kingdom — 21 May 2016 at 19:33:02

When are the AQA 1-9 science revision guides coming out??? Thanks

murtaza — london, United Kingdom — 18 May 2016 at 16:41:50

Guestbook Editor: Should be very soon — most of them will be available between late May and early June.

Update: the new AQA Chemistry Revision Guide has just arrived!

Hello, just wondering if there is a KS3 science workbook? Because I got a CGP KS3 science workbook but it has been discontinued so I want to get the science workbook that goes along with the KS3 syllabus! Thanks!

Elodie — Dorset, United Kingdom — 17 May 2016 at 09:13:48

Guestbook Editor: Yes, absolutely — here it is!

After reading the GCSE Core Science Higher level revision guide, I had come across a line which has appeared to be a mistake. On page 18, the heading 'Bacteria Can Become Resistant to Antibiotics', the fifth point its states 'MRSA causes serious wound infectious and is resistant to the powerful antibiotic methicillin'. Were the words meant to translate to 'serious wound infectious' or serious wound infections?

Student — London, United Kingdom — 15 May 2016 at 13:09:10

Guestbook Editor: You're right — it should say 'infections'. Sorry that typo slipped through the net.

I have just bought the MHS46 gcse higher new maths 1to 9 grade. For the answers to page 43 question 6 its states square root of 9 but i think it is a misprint and should be 16 can you clarify this

Emma gardiner — Durham, United Kingdom — 15 May 2016 at 13:06:02

Guestbook Editor: That's strange... everything else in this solution is correct, but halfway through it does indeed say √9 where it should say √16. Thanks for pointing it out — we'll correct this at the next reprint.

Maths buster is fantastic. Can we have one for A Level.

Lisa — Southampton, United Kingdom — 14 May 2016 at 21:37:16

Absolutely on the money for today's students. I can't understand why we expect our students to be engaged with the old boring fare offered by many schools. Kids love CGP books because they are visually interesting and cover the curriculum in perfectly manageable chunks. Fantastic resources, and the workbooks make first rate class work and homework material. They are also a little bit fresher for long term teachers too.

Sean — Garstang via Cairo, United Kingdom — 14 May 2016 at 15:41:24

Alot of people think alot of the word alot and alot of them dont really know alot.

Jhon A lot — Alotsie, United Kingdom — 11 May 2016 at 17:48:20

Guestbook Editor: Now you're just messing with us.

Hello! Great books you make! Outstanding! Just wondering how you got the name 'CGP' and what it means/stands for? Thanks!

Mrs.NERG — Dorset, United Kingdom — 10 May 2016 at 22:40:20

Guestbook Editor: Hello! And thank you! CGP stands for Coordination Group Publications, which stems back to our roots in the mid '90s when we were small enough to be considered a group. We're at least five platoons these days.

That's not a very interesting story, so if anybody would like to invent an alternative fan fiction version of our origins, feel free to send it in (bearing in mind that this is a family website).

can you provide the books online?

amy — woodcroft avenue, United Kingdom — 10 May 2016 at 20:31:00

Guestbook Editor: Yes! Well, some of them. Many of our books are now available as Amazon Kindle Editions, and some of our printed books include free Online Editions. However, we don't currently sell these Online Editions separately, so Kindle is probably your best bet if you don't want a paper copy of the book.

when are the 9-1 science AQA revision guides coming out.. thanks

murtaza — london, United Kingdom — 10 May 2016 at 17:44:08

Guestbook Editor: Soon... the new AQA specifications have just been approved, so we're printing furiously. The first lot should be arriving in late May / early June. Look forward to them!

I like your books a lot, and have used them from CEM 11 plus onwards. Here is voice of customer feedback for you.

1. GCSE, please create more volumes of work books, along with model answers. One workbook is not always enough.

2. A levels, you need to have white work books plus. model answers for each revision guide you produce.

Let's see if you answer this post.

Anil — Warks, United Kingdom — 10 May 2016 at 15:11:22

Guestbook Editor: Hello — thanks for your customer feedback. I detect that you're a fan of Workbooks?

For GCSE, I'm not sure how often we're asked for more Workbooks. For the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs, we're generally moving over towards Exam Practice Workbooks, where the questions are focused on preparing you for the ones you'll encounter in the real exams (and complete step-by-step answers are included). It depends on the subject, really — for GCSE Maths, we offer all the practice you could ever dream of, with Workbooks, Exam Practice Workbooks, Textbooks and our digital MathsBuster Revision & Practice Kit. But for a subject like History, most students probably aren't in the market for endless essay-style practice questions with detailed model answers.

A-Level Workbooks are requested more often, and we'd definitely keep it in mind for the future. In the meantime, our A-Level Complete Revision & Practice guides and Student Books contain a very healthy selection of questions.

it is alright the site is really easy to use

jennifer gren — somerset, United Kingdom — 09 May 2016 at 19:06:16

Used CGP back in 2008 for my A levels.. using them again as I am taking a new A level to get into medical school. Best revision tool by a mile!

N — NYC, United States of America — 09 May 2016 at 18:03:31

(Commenting on book BUAR54, New A-Level Business: AQA Year 1 & AS Complete Revision & Practice

there are no answers, which makes the exam style questions pointless. you cant mark them so you have no idea how you did

beth — bath , United Kingdom — 09 May 2016 at 17:38:25

Thankyou- very easy to get the 11+CEM workbooks which are very clearly laid out. I especially like the 10minute test books- makes doing a little practice for the 11+ easy in bite size pieces. And the discount for big orders really helps! better than amazon! Thankyou

Katrina Attwood — Mottingham, United Kingdom — 09 May 2016 at 15:43:26

I've been using your books for a solid five years now and you guys are absolute lifesavers!!! I cannot compliment your books enough, and I have actually bought them for friends before as presents! Just one quick question - do you have a book for OCR MEI Decision 2? Cheers!

Kirsten — Totton, United Kingdom — 07 May 2016 at 23:45:31

Guestbook Editor: Thanks very much! Many a lifelong friendship has been cemented by the gift of a CGP book, I imagine.

Unfortunately, we don't currently cover the Decision 2 Module for A-Level Maths. Sorry about that.

i don't think this website is very good as they have change the website and now you can not the old books . they have bought out new books which i dont think is right

watson — sunderland, United Kingdom — 05 May 2016 at 15:55:17

Super easy to use website and ordering. Thank you for letting me update my library stock simply and without fuss!

Lucie Payne — Hampton, United Kingdom — 03 May 2016 at 16:16:22

I already have some of your books but they are for the Year 11's now. I am thinking of getting some of the new 9-1 Grades CGP Books but do they have the same content as the old Year 11 books?

Saharah — London, United Kingdom — 02 May 2016 at 16:29:13

Guestbook Editor: Hello — the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs are a bit different from the 'old' Grade A*-G courses, so we've updated our books to match the latest requirements. Your Year 11 books will still cover a lot of the material you need, but they won't be a perfect fit for your exams.

Are you going to make a A-level Law book or a Computer Science A-Level book?

Also, are you making a book for Edexcel English Literature A-Level course (first teaching in 2015: AS exams in 2016)?

David — London, United Kingdom — 01 May 2016 at 15:53:32

Guestbook Editor: It's hard to say a definite yes or no to any of those, but I'd say A-Level Computer Science is the most likely contender. We are definitely planning new A-Level English Language books, but that's probably not much help to you...

This Website Was Quite Helpful & Useful, As I Was Eligible To Purchase Revision Books Online, In Order To Seek More Interest Within My Learning & Participation Within My Class.
