Your service is amazing - ordered KS2 revision books at 4pm on Monday there were delivered to school before I arrived on Tuesday morning. Thank you very much

I provide tutoring from GCSE through A Level to University Headstart in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Psychology and Sociology for about 40 students each year with a wide range of abilities. CGP products are amazing especially the online editions which save me a lot of space with the added advantage that I have the printed copies as well to fall back on. I just wish that Sociology and Psychology had online editions as well (please, please). I recommend the revision books to all my students who give me great feedback on the style and approach you take. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Mike Hesketh — Camberley, United Kingdom — 16 Jan 2018 at 12:36:41

My 6 year old daughter uses these books in her extra maths group. She thoroughly enjoys working through them so thought I would purchase them and work with her at home. Watch this space.....

(Commenting on book RAR41, New Grade 9-1 GCSE Religious Studies: AQA A Revision Guide with Online Edition

I really like the RE revision book. My students benefited from the revision books when they prepared for their marks. The information is clear and written in student friendly language. The revision questions at the end of each unit are very helpful. It could be even better if additional essay plans were provided.

* Just an observation...
As I was scrolling through the list and then decided to add something to the basket..... when I went back to continue to scroll it had gone back to the top of the list. So, you have to scroll all the way back down to where you were. I'm not sure if this is a thing that can be changed or not!

Jean — Macclesfield, United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2018 at 20:24:52

Guestbook Editor: Hello, and thanks for the comment. We'll definitely look out for this quirk as part of our website update (see below)...

Why do I have to register and set up an account when I only want to purchase one book? This is a complete waste of my time making up passwords that I will not remember or want to remember, setting up an account that is then hackable. Payment through Paypal would ensure my details are kept just as secure and without me having to enter them on yet another website for a once only purchase. Please review your payment systems. I am only using this website as Amazon say that the book I am purchasing is out of stock. If you wish to encourage people to use your bookshop then please make the payment experience simpler.

Clare — Winchester, United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2018 at 12:53:12

Guestbook Editor: Apologies for the inconvenience. We're working on some improvements to our website that should make the buying process quicker and easier — we're hoping they'll be live later this year. Thanks for your patience!

I would like to know if the new maths for ks2 textbooks are meant to be purchased as 1 per child.

Abi — Townville, United Kingdom — 12 Jan 2018 at 14:20:33

Guestbook Editor: Yes, that's the ideal way to use our KS2 Maths Textbooks — the questions are split into differentiated sets to suit pupils of all abilities, so it's best if each child has a book to work through at their own pace.

I love CGP revision books. I used them all through primary school too and they are the main reason I got such a fantastic result in my SATs. they are brilliant, not at just teaching you and helping you to remember things for an exam but keeping young children engaged by the funny pictures and comments in the books. I can safely say that a few years on, I am still using CGP books in Year 10 and probably wouldn't go with any other text book, they put the fun in revision and school. :)

sian — derbyshire, United Kingdom — 11 Jan 2018 at 22:26:08

Hello CGP Team,

Do you plan to add to the offer some workbooks for A-Level Further Maths as well as Revision Guides / Workbooks for A-Level CompSci? I mean the new specifications for first exams in 2019. Is there any chance that you release them before Summer 2019? Thanks in advance.

P.S. New A-Level Maths resources are brillant :-)

Vladimir Stupnitsky — Bournemouth, United Kingdom — 11 Jan 2018 at 21:12:46

Guestbook Editor: Great to hear you like the new A-Level Maths books! Our new Complete Revision & Practice books for A-Level Further Maths will include plenty of practice questions and exam-style questions — they're due out in February (Edexcel) and April (AQA).

No news on A-Level Computer Science for the moment, I'm afraid.

All books are great but for revision summary pages would be great if there were answers in the back of the book or something because I will never know if my answer is worthy of full marks or not :)

Georgie — Southampton , United Kingdom — 11 Jan 2018 at 20:02:45

(Commenting on book MHN43, New Maths for GCSE and IGCSE® Textbook, Higher (for the Grade 9-1 Course)

is this for the edexcel exam board i can only get the textbook for edexcel so can i use this?

amanda — london, United Kingdom — 10 Jan 2018 at 19:28:55

Guestbook Editor: Yep, this Textbook is great for all GCSE Maths and International GCSE Maths courses, including Edexcel. It's focused on practice (there are thousands of questions inside), so if you're looking for more detailed study notes, you might want to have of our Revision Guides or Complete Revision & Practice books to go with it!

On p.59 of the GCSE AQA Chemistry Revision Guide, the word 'than' is missing where it says 'sodium is more reactive hydrogen'.

V — London, United Kingdom — 09 Jan 2018 at 21:30:26

Guestbook Editor: So it is — we'll add that in. Thanks!

amazing books but it would be great if you had a book on how to annotate poetry aqa 9-1 gcse

Raj reyansh patel — pinner, United Kingdom — 07 Jan 2018 at 15:04:52

Guestbook Editor: Sounds as if our AQA Unseen Poetry Guides might be what you're looking for — they're packed with advice on how to tackle poetry questions in the exams, plus a big range of sample poems to practise on.

Is there a GCSE OCR ICT Revision Guide and Workbook for the 9-1 Course?

Clifton — Chesterfield, United Kingdom — 06 Jan 2018 at 18:03:27

Guestbook Editor: Not exactly... when the Grade 9-1 changes came in, GCSE ICT courses were replaced by GCSE Computer Science. Just follow that link to see our books and practice papers for the new OCR courses!

Can you do an a Level English book for aqa please

Tolulope — Gravesend, United Kingdom — 05 Jan 2018 at 17:18:29

CGP books are absolutely brilliant! My children have used them throughout primary and now using at secondary. Just wish that they had been around when I was young (which was a very long time ago). Thank you, CGP!

Emma — St Albans, United Kingdom — 05 Jan 2018 at 11:07:25

The GCSE (9-1) English Literature Poetry Anthology books are amazing! It explains everything so clearly and makes it much easier to understand, would 100% recommend

Mimi — London, United Kingdom — 04 Jan 2018 at 23:10:45

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! While we're on the subject, our GCSE Poetry range now covers the WJEC Eduqas exam board as well as AQA — there's a brand new WJEC Eduqas Poetry Anthology Poetry Guide out now, plus a book for Unseen Poetry on the way soon...

Excellent resources for both 11+ and 13+ common entrance examinations.

Subra — Ilford, United Kingdom — 02 Jan 2018 at 02:08:36

(Commenting on book XRR41, Professor Gunning's Erudite Course of Fact Retrieval (How to revise)

This book is amazing - I would really recommend it if you've always struggled with how to revise. If you follow all the tips and instructions it's fail safe!

RevisionLover — Frome, United Kingdom — 01 Jan 2018 at 16:15:34

where could I find the answers to GCSE Biology for edexcel (grade 9-1) exam practice workbook

Michael Malam — London/Watford, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2017 at 17:03:22

Guestbook Editor: Hi — you'll find the Answer Book for this one here.

Thank you so much for your great GCSE English resources. They make a tutor's life a lot easier and my students love them too! I started ordering from you in 2000 when I was Mrs Davis and ran Ridgeway Tutorial Centre and 17 years later I am still teaching and ordering your lovely books.

Linda Pope — SWINDON, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2017 at 12:09:06

Guestbook Editor: You're very welcome. And we have plenty more GCSE English resources on the way in 2018...

Man wen I went to Hogwarts none of this stuff was required there


Jeff — London, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2017 at 11:43:06

As a teacher, I absolutely love your books- wish I had them when I was studying many moons ago. I do have a question. Your practice questions, buster books etc, are they 'real' questions taken from past papers, or do you use the questions as a 'model' for the revision and adapt? Children often do get bogged down with a lot of past papers when then revise, I was hoping your questions are slightly different.

Naz Ahmed — London, United Kingdom — 29 Dec 2017 at 03:35:39

Guestbook Editor: No problem — all the questions in our books and practice papers are original, created by our team of writers and editors. But we do study past papers carefully to make sure we're providing the most realistic and helpful practice possible.

Hey in the A-level Year 1 & AS Edexcel Chemistry(ISBN:9781782942887) on page 72 the example says aqueous potassium hydroxide but the equation given is for sodium hydroxide please take this in to consideration

Jatan vadgama — Nairobi, Kenya — 27 Dec 2017 at 09:48:57

Guestbook Editor: Well spotted — thanks for pointing it out. We'll correct that next time we reprint the book.

I have placed my order around 7-8 PM on the 21/12/17 does that mean it will be dispatched on the 22/12/17? By definition it should come on the '25/12/17' but no person will be working on Christmas day, so when will my order arrive?

Onabill Choudhury — Scunthorpe, United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2017 at 18:51:32

Guestbook Editor: Hopefully you will have received your order by the time you read this — it should have reached you some time in the week after Christmas. Let us know if it hasn't arrived!

In the A-Level AQA Chemistry Textbook Year 1/AS (CATB52) on page 107 there are only two fact-recall question, but in the markscheme (page 281) there are answers for four questions. What happened??

Chris M — Bracknell, United Kingdom — 22 Dec 2017 at 16:06:28

Guestbook Editor: Ah, well spotted — sorry about that. We probably had to remove Q3 and Q4 for space reasons, but forgot to remove the corresponding answers. We'll fix it at the next reprint. Thanks!

Please please consider making a online resource for edexcel gcse combined science and more of the targeted grade 8,9 books for geography English etc. Otherwise very good indeed

Aishah — Cambridde, United Kingdom — 21 Dec 2017 at 09:06:24

How can I track my order or know how long it will take?

Dana — Townville, United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2017 at 11:58:40

Guestbook Editor: Hello — we don't currently offer a tracking service, but if you place an order with us before 5pm, Monday to Friday, we'll dispatch it the same day. That means it should reach you the next working day if you're in the UK!

Great tool to get me my grades, well done!

Emily Morris — Southam, United Kingdom — 19 Dec 2017 at 12:03:48

Great service. Had a problem with a CGP book I bought elsewhere and CGP were great at sorting it out. Would definitely recommend buying directly from CGP.

Joy Hay — Faringdon, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2017 at 14:14:21

My reluctant 15 year old really enjoyed your comic strips for his revision, very motivating- thanks!

Helen Graham — Cheltenham, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2017 at 11:03:05

On p.65 of the Chemistry AQA GCSE Revision Guide, the cathode is written to be the positive electrode and the anode is said to be the negative electrode but they are in fact the wrong way around.

V Vaghela — London, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2017 at 10:55:45

Guestbook Editor: It's a bit confusing, but this is actually correct. We've added a note to the latest reprint of the book to clear things up. Here's what it says:

"Watch out — in electrolysis the anode is the positive electrode and the cathode is the negative one. When dealing with fuel cells, they’re the other way round."

Hope that helps.

What website do I go on so that I could enter the code on my CGP book and get an online textbook

Lyna — Manchester, United Kingdom — 15 Dec 2017 at 19:20:25

Guestbook Editor: The page you're looking for is cgpbooks.co.uk/extras — once you're there, just type your code into the box on the top-right.

I wish cgp could do a health and social care revision guide

Susan Ann-marie Willetts — Mansfield, United Kingdom — 14 Dec 2017 at 19:49:19

I still don't understand trigonometry

mike — rob, United Kingdom — 14 Dec 2017 at 19:24:19

I love CGP books, they make my life so much easier. I use the exam practice work books as home work books. The questions are relevant to the level and already graded, plus I have a copy of the answers.

Tania Savage — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 11 Dec 2017 at 17:26:09

There is a grammar mistake in your GCSE Physics AQA (Grade 9-1) Revision Guide on Page 79- EM Waves and Their Uses. It says ‘Absorbing IR radiation causes objects to get hotter. Food can cooked using IR radiation- the temperature of the food increases when it absorbs IR radiation, e.g. from a toaster’s heating element.’ You need to edit this to food can ‘be’ cooked.

Willow Barber — Birmingham , United Kingdom — 10 Dec 2017 at 21:04:15

Guestbook Editor: How right you are. We'll make sure that missing 'be' is inserted when we next reprint the book. Thanks for pointing it out!

(Commenting on book CAQ41B, New Grade 9-1 GCSE Chemistry: AQA Exam Practice Workbook (with answers)

I have a AQA GCSE chemistry (Grade 9-1) workbook which don't have the answers. Can I order the answer booklet? I can't find the answer booklet on your website.

Sangya — Newbury , United Kingdom — 09 Dec 2017 at 08:54:28

Guestbook Editor: You certainly can — you'll find it here.

Awesome .... just awesome ... experience is beyond words after the GCSE hunt through other providers. Will be coming here as first port of call from now until the Kids leave education. Great Job.

David Lochrie — Derby, United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2017 at 23:10:26

Love the psychology a level guides. Would really appreciate some more English guides for a level, especially AQA ones for the anthology and for The Handmaids Tale and A Streetcar Named Desire.
