I highly recommend that you buy CGP books. Has helped my grades shooting up and I really would want you to buy CGP books.

Deby Dooman — York, United Kingdom — 14 Jan 2017 at 18:20:11

I use these books for my GCSE's. They are actually amazing. I absolutely hate Maths and I simply cant do it. When I hear the word maths my hairs on my arms stand up.. However these books make maths seem a little easier as they explain everything so well. If only CGP was my maths teacher i'd be getting A* instead of an E I just hope they work and the information stays in my head for my GCSE's

Molly — Dollingstown, United Kingdom — 14 Jan 2017 at 14:22:37

These books are amazing I use them all the time. However the online site is quite difficult to find what your looking. I am still unsure where the videos are.

Zoe Blevins — Belfast, United Kingdom — 14 Jan 2017 at 14:17:09

Guestbook Editor: Sorry about that — let us know which videos you're looking for and we'll try to point you in the right direction.

you guys saved my year 10 but from detention and trouble so yeah I own you more than one

ANI — wewlyn garden city, United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2017 at 18:34:53

Over a decade ago I found CGP maths books and loved using them as a teacher and tutor. Returning to tutoring I'm looking forward to seeing the new books!

Clare — Brighton , United Kingdom — 13 Jan 2017 at 15:18:49

Your resources are on point !! Informative and trustworthy. Thankyou cgp.

I'm really enjoying your AQA Stats 1 textbook, but it comes with the past papers on a CD-ROM. My laptop is hella futuristic - I don't mean to brag but it's twice as thick as my laptop (so my laptop has no CD drive). I had to dust out an old PC from the garage to get them off of it. Are there any plans to make these available through other means?

Will — Basingstoke, United Kingdom — 10 Jan 2017 at 17:22:53

Guestbook Editor: Sounds like a fancy laptop you've got there. We originally made these A-Level Maths Student Books a few years ago, when CD-ROM drives were more of a standard feature, and most laptops were thicker than the King James Bible.

I don't think we have any plans to make these practice papers available as downloads (especially since new A-Level Maths courses are starting in September). But if anyone's struggling to access these files, just email our customer services team — they can almost certainly sort something out for you.

I think your functional English books are treasure - very informative and user-friendly! And your service is quick, easy and so generously affordable! Many, many thanks!

Emma Onabolu — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 10 Jan 2017 at 15:26:17

Guestbook Editor: You're welcome! I'll try not to ruin your experience of CGP by saying something unfunny now. I'd better just stop typing.

Hi CGP Books
I absolutely love your books!!
They make studying so much easier!!! The jokes too make learning fun too! Keep up the good work!

Tawonga Nischelle Chirwa — Blantyre, Malawi — 10 Jan 2017 at 15:23:28

I really love your books. I came to the UK 3 years ago. No English... nothing. But I spend 4 hours every day with your books and now I can talk. My English it's not perfect, but thanks to you I feel more comfortable.

anna — Manchester, United Kingdom — 06 Jan 2017 at 21:57:35

"This bundle contains both of our new AQA A-Level Chemistry Student Books (Year 1 and Year 2) — with a big saving on the price of buying them separately!"

Wow, CGP. I would like to express my gratitude for this astronomical saving. Even with the weak value of the pound, £1.98 is a fantastic reduction.

Lets see...
19 packs of Haribo, with 8 pence remaining
Two items from the 99p store
BHS. With 98 pence remaining!!
55754.58 Vietnamese Dong

Only kidding guys, I love your books. And genuinely, no matter how small the saving, it is appreciated!

"Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves"

Philip G — London, United Kingdom — 05 Jan 2017 at 21:09:10

Guestbook Editor: Ah, sometimes we get a bit carried away with our enthusiastic adjectives. For instance, we tried to write a Text Guide for the Charles Dickens novel Little Dorrit, but we couldn't stop ourselves from typing 'Gigantic Dorrit' every time.

What did you spend your £1.98 on in the end?

The website was dead easy to use and i was very impressed with what was on offer, especially after giving each book a flick through, a nice touch often left out by other websites.
I have purchased plenty for the kids to immerse themselves in, CGP came highly recommended by my sons primary school teacher so fingers crossed.
I'll let you know how they get on!
Many thanks.

Graeme Mackenzie — Skipton, United Kingdom — 04 Jan 2017 at 21:39:28

Ur books are of immense benefit to SAT students in Maths and English. we are codingteam we appreciate what you are doing

codingteam — texas, United States of America — 04 Jan 2017 at 08:10:14

Um ,where could I get the books of Macbeth , An Inspector Calls and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde on this website CGP?

26lovers — nontown, United Kingdom — 03 Jan 2017 at 15:07:08

Guestbook Editor: Hi — you'll find brilliant study notes on all these in our GCSE Text Guides section. (We don't sell the plays / novels themselves, though — sorry.)

Robert — Rather Not Say, United Kingdom — 03 Jan 2017 at 14:09:37

Guestbook Editor: Good question. I don't have a good answer. Would anyone else like to step in?

Best website for revision books and exam practice and oh the next day delivery just wow. Really like the service. Keep up the good work. The funny jokes in each revision guide alter the mood. Brilliant. Very happy and proud.

Syed — Accrington, United Kingdom — 03 Jan 2017 at 14:00:23

This is my first order. I saw the contents and sample pages and decided to order the books. Answers with explainations is what I was looking for.Thanks

Payal — London, United Kingdom — 02 Jan 2017 at 19:12:29

I just wanted to point out an error in the GCSE AQA Chemistry book,it says that the Anode is the NEGATIVE electrode and the Cathode is the POSITIVE. I have triple checked this information and I know that it is definitely wrong.

Annonymous — Dagenham, United Kingdom — 30 Dec 2016 at 19:12:08

Guestbook Editor: You're right — the anode is the positive electrode and the cathode is negative.

However, this info seems to be correct in our most recent AQA GCSE Chemistry Revision Guides (CAR44 and CAR45). Could you tell us exactly which book you're using? You'll find the book's code underneath the barcode on the back cover. Thanks!

UPDATE: Thanks to a tip-off from our Science Team, I now think you're probably looking at the page about fuel cells? These are an exception to the rule above — in a fuel cell, the anode is negative and the cathode is positive. So we've given you the correct info, but haven't made a note to explain this difference between electrolysis and fuel cells. Sorry for any confusion — we'll add more explanation next time we reprint the book.

Used these books for my GCSEs (English Literature, Mathematics, Spanish and History) and they were a huge help! If it wasn't for the mathematics book, I wouldn't have got a C and helped me get into college. I've ordered the AS and A Level Psychology book and i'm hoping that it will help. Just wondering, will you be publishing any AS/A Level History books? Thanks :)

Caitlin — St Helens, United Kingdom — 30 Dec 2016 at 18:22:08

Guestbook Editor: Excellent — glad we could help. We don't have any A-Level History books on the cards at the moment, though, I'm afraid.

I love CGP because I go ahahahhhhaahahahahahhahhahahhah all day long. I want to work at CGP when im older. Plz reserve a job for me.
"I've got my ion you" CGP.

Adiaaana — dog, United Kingdom — 30 Dec 2016 at 15:20:10

Guestbook Editor: Sounds as if you'll fit in perfectly.

I heard a call from the woods saying "CGP"
so I decided to fly.

this book is amazing it is really helpful i would totally use this book everyday for science

Sivanesan — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 28 Dec 2016 at 18:29:19

Hello, these books are really wonderful, but I do believe you made a typo/spelling mistake in the Biology CGP page 30. Instead of "fro in" I believe it should be "from". I do think this is a useful thing to check for future reference! Well done on the quality of the book besides that!!!

charlotte — martin , United Kingdom — 23 Dec 2016 at 11:21:08

Guestbook Editor: Hmm, it does sound as if we've made a typo there. We'll check it out — thanks!

I wonder whether you remember me from a couple of years back (snooker and sausage eating champion, the suggestion of sailing away with your profits from CGP). I made many rather memorable comments on this guestbook. The other day i remembered and decided to make my last comment. May your books be forever a piece of my mind, body and 2am red bull indulged cramming revision sessions the night before my exams.

cgp editor — lyme regis, United Kingdom — 21 Dec 2016 at 15:04:15

Guestbook Editor: Ah, the nostalgia... your sausage-eating prowess will echo through the centuries.

Hope it's not really your last comment — check in with us every 10 years or so to let us know how your career is progressing. Until then, have several merry Christmases.

Excellent books and service. I have ordered my books today and they will arrive on time. keep up the good work and we will spread your good name CGP BOOKS to the rest of the world.

Tdmohamed — London, United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2016 at 09:01:38

(Commenting on book ETI44, GCSE English Text Guide - An Inspector Calls

For your own companies benefit I would like to inform you about a typo made in this text book "ghoul" which is actually spelled as goole

Nutella And Waffles — Newcastle, United Kingdom — 20 Dec 2016 at 00:24:55

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! But on this occasion, we've spelt it like this on purpose. As we explain on page 20, "It's a bit of a joke that Inspector Goole's name sounds like 'Ghoul' — a word for 'ghost'." Hence our headline on the same page, "Whooo is this Inspector Ghoul?"

CGP is better than any other company for learning

(Commenting on book DHSB41, GCSE German Bundle (A*-G course)

I find this to be an excellent resource/ system I used the books for French and Spanish and got A+ and recently have been using german gcse exam practice workbook which is proving to be a most worthwhile purchase so I shall continue using it.

Janet Brown — London, United Kingdom — 16 Dec 2016 at 19:29:00

(Commenting on book PAR46, GCSE Physics AQA Revision Guide (with online edition) (A*-G course)

Well, I'll start by mentioning that I was given this book (and the chemistry and biology books) by the school on the premise that they are to be returned undamaged when I finish GCSES. I was glad for this because I was sure that, somewhere inside this horrible, horrible book, there would be a single sentence that could help me. Now, I'm not saying that there isn't - there could very well be a lot that could help - however, it is so deeply hidden amongst layers upon layers of horrendous fonts, poor life choices, and colour schemes which truly make you want to gag that, even if you spend your precious few hours searching through it (if you survive that long without dry heaving yourself straight to A&E) that you are unlikely to have found anything worthwhile.

Gently mixed in to the margins are overworked little cartoons, filled in with tones matching the overall colourscheme. This doesn't sound so bad, right? Wrong. These almost irrelevant cartoons are usually accompanied by little speech bubbles and catchphrases which even a 10 year old would find pathetic and cringe worthy. Now (finally) onto the actual content, and what I assume is the whole reason you're actually buying this God awful catastrophe. As far as I can tell, it actually covers most of the exam specification. However, if you think you are in for an easy ride by revising using this book, then you must be horribly mistaken, and I am very sorry for you. This book transfers very quickly on each individual page from reassuring you like you're a ten year old, to actually covering the exam spec.. I feel like I ought to add that, despite the 'useful' 'organisation' of the text in boxes, it is impossible to find the border between useless garbage and high level scientific terminology. To add to the horrors of the page, it seems to appear that almost every other word is underlined, with no explanation provided.

That seems to be all for now, but seriously though, DO NOT BUY IT. THERE ARE MUCH BETTER, SAFER OPTIONS OUT THERE!

Eleanor — Ivybridge, United Kingdom — 13 Dec 2016 at 21:46:33

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for the excellent, and very funny, critique. We know our style won't be to everyone's taste — but we do provide sample pages of all our books on the website, so you can look through and decide for yourself. (Warning: may result in dry-heaving.) Quite a few people seem to like what we do...

I would like to see years' books with say 3-4 test books for each subject set at £9.99, there would be 4 standards novice-beginner-advanced-gifted

of course all parents will aspire to gifted and this could be more expensive to ensure we get the right question setters. I think there is too much choice - the website should be set into school years

Very helpful !

Hi, I cant seem to find the answer books on the website?

Hasmita Kara — Kenton , United Kingdom — 07 Dec 2016 at 13:04:34

Guestbook Editor: No problem — the answers to these three SAT Busters are in this book.

this helped me to get past the difficult exams at the end of school of rock, rock on CGP

jack — black, United Kingdom — 05 Dec 2016 at 16:17:03

Guestbook Editor: 8:15 to 10, rock history. 10 to 11, rock appreciation in theory. And then band practice till the end of the day.

Absolutely brilliant! (-a tad bit expensive though)

sef setcs4fd — london, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2016 at 20:53:15

i wanted to ask how good is a DR Jekyll and MR Hyde book because i am thinking of purchasing one for Christmas because i am studying it right now and would you recommend the book to other people .

shruti — leamington spa, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2016 at 13:29:07

Guestbook Editor: We may not be completely impartial, but we'd say our Jekyll & Hyde Text Guide for GCSE is pretty excellent. We really went the extra mile to make sure it covers everything you might need for your essays, from characters and themes to historical context and the author's writing techniques. (There's also a very funny cartoon summary of the plot at the back, if that sways your opinion.)

Merchant of Venice needed please!!! Also why is A View From The Bridge no longer available???

Grace — London, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2016 at 11:23:02

Guestbook Editor: Unfortunately, there hasn't been very much demand for A View From The Bridge lately, since the latest curriculum requires schools in England to teach set texts by British authors.

However, A Merchant of Venice Text Guide would be worth a punt (or possibly a gondola)... it's definitely a possibility for the future.

(Commenting on book EGW42, New Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar for GCSE Workbook (includes Answers)

Please provide a book without answers and a separate answer book. If you're a teacher or a tutor (I am both) it's pretty pointless assigning homework from a book that includes the answers!

Nina Vaughan — Brighouse, United Kingdom — 03 Dec 2016 at 02:04:23

I'm-ahem- a 56 yr old HLTA and will be sitting my history GCSE with the year 11s next year. Already terrified

Sue — Swanage, United Kingdom — 02 Dec 2016 at 23:19:23

Guestbook Editor: Don't worry — Year 11s aren't that terrifying once you get to know them. Good luck with the exam.

When buying different books for different skills or subjects gets really expensive. They have a wide range of books for example maths... but it's impossible to buy all.

Misbah — Bradford, United Kingdom — 30 Nov 2016 at 21:52:05

thanks to all this company who makes these books thank you very much
