I'm looking for help with drama a level ? Wjec board. You don't seem to cover drama ?
Btw, the ten minute sats tests for English and maths are great. Do you have anything to help with the reading test ?

Ally cutler — Stockport, United Kingdom — 27 Sep 2016 at 19:45:15

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we can't help you with A-Level Drama at the moment, unfortunately. But we do have plenty of brilliant books for the KS2 English SATS Reading Test, including three SAT Buster Workbooks and two books of 10-Minute Tests. You'll find them all on on our KS2 English SAT Buster page (about halfway down)!

Thank you so much for your great books. I managed to get 2 Cs and 7 Ds at GCSE. Do you write any books for level 2 Hairdressing ("Level 2 - Hairdressing Diploma, City & Guilds")?

Fred Ford — Croydon, United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2016 at 20:34:49

Guestbook Editor: You're welcome. But we haven't branched out into hairdressing or other C&G Diplomas yet, I'm afraid. Sorry!

Some of your website certificates seem to have expired (I got a notification about an invalid certificate when accessing the online edition section of the site)

Fred Ford — Croydon, United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2016 at 20:29:35

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for letting us know — these certificates have been renewed, but the warning messages are still coming up in some browsers. Our IT team is on the case, so it should be sorted soon.

Great books

Dan — Lancs, United Kingdom — 24 Sep 2016 at 16:54:31

A big thank you from us all at Simple Learning for the hard work you put into publishing these books. We use them every week with our tutees.

Ajmal Aziz — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 23 Sep 2016 at 16:57:03

Really like your books and I had pizza for tea.

Kevan — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2016 at 22:41:00

Guestbook Editor: Sounds as if you've found the key to lasting happiness there.

CGP books absolutely rule! I've no idea where i'd be without them!

Fantine — London, United Kingdom — 22 Sep 2016 at 21:39:28

Is the new gsce sciences book topics the same as in any exam board?

Abida — Manchester, United Kingdom — 21 Sep 2016 at 18:20:23

Guestbook Editor: Not quite... each exam board tests students on a slightly different selection of topics, although there's a big overlap between each course. It's best to get the book that matches the exam board you're studying if possible — it just means you won't get caught by surprise by an obscure topic in the exams.

I love the new year 7 books that i just bought!

Shathikka — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 21 Sep 2016 at 18:16:06

Wonderful products and customer service. I got a reply within a few hours to an email, very impressed.

Samira — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 21 Sep 2016 at 16:02:47

Really Thanks a lot for helping us, I would like if you give gifts for loyal customers and free editions.
News letters also will be highly appreciated

Wael Elmaghrabi — Doah, Qatar — 17 Sep 2016 at 12:56:34

Sorry! I meant that I just started year 10, not 9! Haha

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 16 Sep 2016 at 21:56:24

Guestbook Editor: Easily done — I try not to think too hard about which year I'm in these days.

If you're in Year 10 now, our current Grade A*-G Statistics books will suit you just fine.

i love your books. they made me get a good score in sats.

emma — shropshire, United Kingdom — 16 Sep 2016 at 18:45:44

Love the exam style questions workbooks for my students. I am a private tutor and my students feel much better prepared for examinations by using them. Would love a bit of colour on the pages just to brighten them up!

Kerry Haw — Frodsham, United Kingdom — 16 Sep 2016 at 10:42:16

Please make a new 9-1 book for statistics GCSE! Or is it not changing to 9-1 yet? I've just started year 9

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 15 Sep 2016 at 20:52:06

Guestbook Editor: Don't worry — Grade 9-1 GCSE Statistics courses aren't starting until September 2017. We'll have more info about our new Stats books nearer the time...

Done my A-levels 10 years early using your books, hopefully I get into secondary school. Not sure whether to go to uni now or just keep amassing A-levels until I have completed every single A-level.

Kanye West — Los Angeles, CA, United States of America — 14 Sep 2016 at 15:00:57

Guestbook Editor: That's nothing. I have enough A-Levels to be the CGP Guestbook Editor, and I haven't even been conceived yet.

Brilliant I used Maths buster 4 months worked through the levels took my GSCE maths a year early and got an A this year.

Will you be creating Maths buster for A level and further Maths GCSE please. Really would like them.

yellow — Hampshire, United Kingdom — 14 Sep 2016 at 13:25:44

Guestbook Editor: Nice work — well done. It just goes to show that everyone should have CGP MathsBuster in their life. I have it in the drawer next to me, I think. [Checks] Yes I do.

MathsBuster was a very big project for us, so unfortunately we can't rustle up new versions for Further Maths and A-Level all that quickly. But you never know.

I achieved full marks for spag and A* for Maths with your help

Madhini Sivakumar — Edgbaston,Birmingham, United Kingdom — 13 Sep 2016 at 18:57:16

Will you ever make books for specific tests, such as UKCAT, BMAT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, etc. I'm sure this is a market which hasn't been tapped into too much and the content doesn't really change.

Chuck Testa — Landan innit fam, United Kingdom — 11 Sep 2016 at 23:09:41

Guestbook Editor: It's not something we're planning at the moment — but we did produce the Assumed Subject Knowledge guide for BMAT, as mentioned a few posts down the page. No need to brace yourself for an orthodontistry book any time soon.

is the elusive guestbook editor one person...?

don'tmindme — london, United Kingdom — 08 Sep 2016 at 21:49:30

Guestbook Editor: Yes, most of the time. One person with two jokes.

So pleased with the books offered. I have been using them with my son starting in year 2 and have just ordered his year 4 books. My daughter used the year F books last year and loved all the tasks. We started the year 1 books during the holidays.

Jeni Clarke — Leigh on Sea, United Kingdom — 08 Sep 2016 at 14:26:27

Why no Electronics in the A-level year 13 Physics revision guide??

Isaac Einstein — Woolsthorpe-by-Coltersworth, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 22:26:38

Guestbook Editor: This just came down to numbers, we're afraid. When we made the book, Electronics was only taken by a small minority of students — and since we had dozens of other A-Level Science books to get ready for the new courses, we had to prioritise the topics that would be most useful to most people.

Plus we have a morbid fear of all electronic devices.

How about some books for Further Maths A-Level, with Edexcel.

Also, getting them written and published before Easter would help too, I need them for the end of the year.

I now realise that this might be too much to ask for... shame would have paid good money for Further maths books :p

Maths is fun — The North, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 17:57:09

Guestbook Editor: Yes, we might struggle to squeeze these into a schedule before next summer, unfortunately, especially since A-Level Maths courses are changing in September 2017.

CGP books for those new Further Maths A-Levels are a definite possibility... but that doesn't help you much. Sorry!

Year 7 books link plzzzzz

Ekom — London, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 17:40:22

Guestbook Editor: You need our Key Stage 3 Range — most of these books cover Years 7, 8 and 9.

(Commenting on book EGW42, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar for Grade 9-1 GCSE Workbook (includes Answers)

I wish that this book was still available without the answers in.

V Denman — Chislehurst, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 16:37:22

we're just startin to use ur books i hope they work out

brother thomas — aberdeen, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 15:18:59

Having done home education for five years using cgp books, my eldest son is now in his second year of doing a degree. His brother aged 11 has now begun home ed and I have now just placed my order for the new cgp books. I would recommend them to everyone regardless of ability.

T Thompson — Ackworth, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 13:49:01

Is there any chance that you will publish any books for achieving a high score for the BMAT / UKCAT entrance exams?

Frederich Ford — London, United Kingdom — 07 Sep 2016 at 10:54:55

Guestbook Editor: It's unlikely we'll be publishing a specific guide to doing well in these exams... but we did make the online Assumed Subject Knowledge guide for BMAT. You can access it here.

chips and egg

Hannah Fox — Backbarrow, United Kingdom — 06 Sep 2016 at 10:56:22

Guestbook Editor: Classic tea.

10 of my class of 30 for A levels achieved 3A*s with 2 achieving 4. I asked the group which books they have been using and they replied CGP. I have taken a look on some of the books and will buy them so that all my student achieve the best grades.

Mr. Tedd — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 05 Sep 2016 at 08:01:16

So will u make books for starting secondary.
pllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssseeeeeee. I really need it maann. I'm begging ya

i dunno — i dunno, United Kingdom — 04 Sep 2016 at 15:12:00

Guestbook Editor: I don't know either, unfortunately. Perhaps one of our book developers will read your comment and feel inspired...

The CGP Books are brilliant!!!

And the printable CEM papers!!!

I was a late starter because I found out about the 11+ in the middle of Year 5, so, I googled up '11+ Help ', I found this website, I was shocked that CGP didn't only have amazing books that are in libraries, they also have an astonishing website (There are other books that do this as well but, I think they both are as well as the most important websites for schools, students, like me, and parents should focus on)!!

So, if you haven't bought any books or even logged in, I hope this would encourage you!!

This comment is typed up and thought about very carefully

Hoorub Fatima (Zee for short ) — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 04 Sep 2016 at 11:05:21

Guestbook Editor: Thakns veyr umch!

This reply has been typed up very carelessly.

Hi, I am sure you will probably say no, but is it possible you could make handwriting books for KS3/GCSE level? My handwriting is really bad...

Danilo Paganelli — London, United Kingdom — 03 Sep 2016 at 20:33:36

Guestbook Editor: You're right — it's a bit unlikely, I'm afraid. We have just launched five new handwriting books for primary, though, so if you want to revisit some of the basics, they'd be a very good bet.

My handwriting is pretty bad too, if that's any consolation. Lucky CGP lets me use a computer to type these responses.

I really love your CGP books. I passed entry level 3 maths due to buying your books and revising them non-stop. I hope that I pass Level 1 Maths

Lalene Malik — Greenford, United Kingdom — 03 Sep 2016 at 17:47:37

I believe there is a mistake on the periodic table about Lithium. It puts the 7 on the top and the 3 beneath. I think it's the other way round. Is this correct

Justin — Broadstairs, United Kingdom — 03 Sep 2016 at 16:46:28

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we've tried to look into this for you, but we're not sure which book you're using. Would you be able to drop us an email (customerservices@cgpbooks.co.uk) with the details? Thanks.

Will you improve your books. What will you do to improve them and are there any new books ya gonna introduce.

Anon — Somewhere, United Kingdom — 03 Sep 2016 at 09:20:38

Guestbook Editor: We're always improving our books! Every time the curriculum changes, we're first on the scene with updated editions that match the new courses and exams. In the last few years alone, we've made fresh ranges for the new Primary Curriculum and SATS, the new KS3 Curriculum, Grade 9-1 GCSEs, new A-Levels and new Functional Skills tests. Every time, we've added new features and updated the design to make sure they're as helpful and easy to use as possible.

And we're constantly coming up with new books — keep an eye on our What's New page for the latest info.

Thank you. I achieved the 6A*s and 6As I needed to study UCL. I can't believe the fact that so many of your users are doing so well. Will you make books for entry into top universities and for PhD students.

Ariya — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 02 Sep 2016 at 13:46:24

Guestbook Editor: Great stuff — well done. I think PhD level might be a bit beyond our area of specialisation, but a book for university entrance is an interesting idea...

I'm using the a level physics books to help me thru primary, theyre pretty decent but a reckon they're a bit too basic at some points.

jimmy john — darlo, United Kingdom — 02 Sep 2016 at 04:12:51

Guestbook Editor: You made me laugh out loud then. My office colleagues were surprised, and slightly disturbed, by this unusual outburst.
