Hi, I just placed an order. Just wondering if you do any special discounts for home educators?

Noreen — Harrow, United Kingdom — 14 Aug 2017 at 00:06:36

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for your order — hope it arrived with you safely. We don't offer discounts to home educators specifically, but there are big savings (up to 35% off!) for anyone who places a large order. You'll find more info on our Infrequently Asked Questions page.

Just wanted to say a big thanks to CGP. I have used your books since first school but at a-level more than any other time they have been really useful. Whenever I don't understand the wording of my other textbooks, I know my CGP textbook will explain it in a way I understand. I especially appreciate the new AQA A-level Physics guide covering the optional modules. It follows the spec. better than the other textbooks, which miss important sections, and it is kind of you to include all sections in the book (unlike other publishers which expect your school to have an online subscription for access - unfair if your school is unwilling to pay). The section on cows in one of the maths textbooks was really helpful by the way, it was reassuring to hear that pantomime cows aren't real. All books seem well checked with few mistakes, and I really appreciated some of the jokes after a long day of revision. I think you should expand your range of apps. At GCSE, the science apps were really helpful, they would have been great for more subjects and at A-level too.
P.S. Has your jellyfish learnt how to ride a tricycle yet?

Katie — Somewhere Sunny, United Kingdom — 10 Aug 2017 at 11:16:46

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for your in-depth feedback — much appreciated. Our jellyfish has long since mastered the tricycle and has turned its attention to interpreting the major works of Nietzsche through a postmodernist lens.

Great books

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

This book has helped me so much-Thank you!
By any chance pleasseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee could you do one for GCSE Spanish? A grammar workbook and guide, I mean, like you did for French.
Also by chance could you make any books for Italian??
But the important thing is Spanish please!

Danilo — London, United Kingdom — 07 Aug 2017 at 21:55:36

Guestbook Editor: I don't think we're planning any Spanish Grammar guide at the moment, sadly, although they would be a lovely addition to our collection of languages books. Maybe one day.

GCSE Italian also falls into the 'maybe one day' category. There just aren't enough ore in un giorno.

I have been using your books and services for many years and have always been very impressed with the quality and style of both the books and the service. Well done and keep them coming. Oh! By the way; steak, mash, mushrooms and sweetcorn.

JoJo Williams — Littlehampton, United Kingdom — 03 Aug 2017 at 12:29:19

Guestbook Editor: Ah, the secret CGP food code. We'll reply with: courgette, beetroot, couscous and chicken goujons. Over and out.

Second order placed this week and, again, arrived next day in perfect condition. THANK YOU!

Having emailed customer services about a query, it was swiftly replied to AND the problem sorted. Also, having bought several books one day, they were all delivered by courier the next day, free of charge AND with a 35 % discount. Bargain. Thanks!

Robert Maloney — CARLISLE, United Kingdom — 27 Jul 2017 at 08:49:50

I really like all the textbooks and they are really easy to follow. They also are very bright, however, I feel that the books cost enough and therefore, the online things should be free, for example, the interactive vocab testers.

anonymous — anonymous, United Kingdom — 21 Jul 2017 at 12:10:01

Hey please can you make a citizenship 9-1 revision guide for OCR, I can't find a single one and I am failing very much please do!! It is very important!

Danilo — London, United Kingdom — 21 Jul 2017 at 11:50:08

Guestbook Editor: I don't think we're going to be able to help you with this, I'm afraid — we have our hands full making books for other subjects at the moment. Sorry, and good luck with it.

Just want to say how extremely grateful I am for all the 11+ and SATs resources available at CGP. I use the books appropriate for GL Assessment and the successes achieved by my tutees have been testament to the quality of preparation through the books. The detailed answers are really helpful, in terms of time-saving!
It is lovely to occasionally receive a 'freebie' through the post too, possibly highlighting a new product, but just as a 'Thank You'. This is a really nice touch.
I have only the tiniest query, and that is in regard to the level of difficulty in the age 10-11 Non-Verbal Reasoning. To most of my students, it seems significantly more difficult than the age 9-10 book, whereas in other skill areas the progression is less abrupt.
None of that last paragraph in any way detracts from my satisfaction with the preparation books as a whole. I love them and my students enjoy using them. Thank you, CGP!

Violet Thompson — ASHFORD, United Kingdom — 19 Jul 2017 at 05:33:17

Guestbook Editor: Thanks for your feedback — it's great to hear your students are enjoying 11+ success with a bit of help from CGP. We'll pass your comment about the Non-Verbal Reasoning books on to our 11+ team so that they can keep an eye out for sudden jumps in difficulty in future editions.

(Commenting on book M4PB21, New KS2 Maths Textbook - Year 4

This is a superb textbook with clear differentiated questions! When will the same be available for KS1, in particular Year 2?

Emma Chapman — Walsall, United Kingdom — 18 Jul 2017 at 08:40:19

Guestbook Editor: Thanks — glad you like it! We haven't quite finished making the textbooks for Years 3, 5 and 6 yet (they'll be ready in time for September), so it'll be while before we can tackle Key Stage One...

Hi is there any chance you could make history revision guides that include crime and punishment as a lot of people are studying crime and punishment rather than medicine through time

Tasawar — derby, United Kingdom — 13 Jul 2017 at 21:19:15

The books are really good, but i would appreciate it if the a-level economics books would specify whether its for edexcel or aqa, moreover they should do the same for geography as they do not have ocr geography.

Amana — London, United Kingdom — 12 Jul 2017 at 15:15:06

As an A-level student, now in Year 13, I would be lost without these revision guides. They are the only revision guides that list everything you need to know. No nonsense background information, no waffling and nothing beyond the specification. It literally (for my A-level courses) lists the specification on the side with exam tips that I imagine are sourced from examiner reports.

Reece — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 10 Jul 2017 at 21:00:32

Amazing! So much better than Collins, more detailed and even though the price can be a little more, its totally worth it! Easy website to use and lots of types of books to buy for anyone who needs it. Recommended, have been using this for 3 years.

Nowshi — Essex, United Kingdom — 08 Jul 2017 at 23:35:39

My kids seems to get along easily with CGP books compared to other brands. It make parenting a bit easier when kids show interest in books. Every little helps.

Amazing but when is the new science book going to come out?

Scholarship candatate — Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom — 24 Jun 2017 at 16:18:14

Guestbook Editor: It's not too far off... the new 13+ Science Study Book is due in mid-July, with the matching Practice Book following towards the end of August.

This website is sooooo amazing I have loads of cgp books they are so good I have high recemendations !
ps I am 12 and doing a scholarship!!!

Moly Robeson — Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom — 24 Jun 2017 at 16:15:22

Guestbook Editor: Excellent, thanks for recommending us! Good luck with your scholarshipping.

Can we please get a 9-1 revision book for citizenship as it would really be helpful as it is a subject a struggle the most with. By the way i love all the cgp books as they are the best

Ai — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 21 Jun 2017 at 01:11:49

These books have helped me through my GCSEs so much! I'm so greatful for all of their wonderul resources. They make revision fun with all of their stupid puns that help me remember everything! The practice questions in the graphics revision guide are awesome.

Susan — Adana, Turkey — 17 Jun 2017 at 10:42:27

Hi! Just wanted to say thank you for your help with my science A Levels this year. I've noticed an error and an omission whilst using your revision guides. In the AS Level Chemistry AQA revision guide (code CAR53), on page 84, under "The Properties of Polyalkenes Depend...", point 3, you've written "polyalkanes" rather than "polyalkenes". I'm assuming this is a typo - I could be wrong. You also don't make any mention of Lewis acids and Lewis bases in the A2 revision guide (code CAR62), though this might just be because it's not on the specification? Thank you again for all the help!

Mitch — Sheffield, United Kingdom — 16 Jun 2017 at 20:55:08

Guestbook Editor: You're right — it should say 'polyalkenes' on p84. We have a note of this of this one, so we'll correct it when the book is next reprinted. Lewis acids and bases aren't mentioned on AQA's A-Level Chemistry specification, so you won't need to learn about those. Thanks!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. I am sitting my last ever GCSE today- physics. Without the help of your AMAZING textbooks I wouldn't have probably passed any of my exams! Thank you for teaching me everything my useless teacher can't !! Xxxx

Louise — Bolton, United Kingdom — 16 Jun 2017 at 07:13:27

Guestbook Editor: Good luck! (Probably a bit late by the time you read this, but it's the thought that counts.)

Thanks CGP for being some of the only people who know what is going on with the new 9-1 GCSE's. Teachers have no clue and are pretty much guessing what to teach us. Lifesavers!

tanya — London, United Kingdom — 14 Jun 2017 at 22:08:06

Having a great time revising for my science GCSEs with these books, they really help with unknown knowledge and it's safe to say they have not let me down. On top of that I've had a little laugh as well. Thanks for the help!

Emily — Wigan, United Kingdom — 14 Jun 2017 at 10:37:04

I buy all my books from CGP...My Spanish teacher said that 'hola' meant yes so I need help from God to pass these 9-1 exams, luckily CGP have got my back, not literally :)

Thanks dudez I love you (p.s. please give me my next 2 books free email me please ;) ).

Nicky — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 11 Jun 2017 at 23:18:33

Guestbook Editor: Ha, nice try... sadly, the Guestbook Editor is famed for being CGP's stingiest member of staff. And I'm not allowed to handle anything that has monetary value. Glad we're helping you with your exams, though.

Adiós! (Which means 'good luck', probably.)

i love these combined science books they help me understand things the teacher does not explain in enough detail
thanxs CGP

kieron — newcastles, United Kingdom — 08 Jun 2017 at 20:15:11

Fantastic resources for school and 11+. Loving all the new CEM books and the Book 2's for extra practice. I wish tutors could get them at the same price as schools though! I'd buy them for my students then instead of asking parents to purchase them.

Sue Marston — Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom — 07 Jun 2017 at 18:13:16

Guestbook Editor: Thanks! And don't forget that you can get up to 35% discount when you place a large order from CGP — visit our Infrequently Asked Questions page for more info.

Please can we have one of these for Spanish?? Would be incredibly useful to help prepare students for the new GCSEs.

Hi, I was just wondering if you will have revision guide for Edexcel A Level Biology B soon? I really like the Physics one which is quite helpful! Thank you.

Melanie — Brighton, United Kingdom — 06 Jun 2017 at 16:50:33

Guestbook Editor: It's unlikely we'll be covering the Edexcel B A-Level Biology spec in the near future, we're afraid. Not very many people are studying it, so you're in an exclusive club...

These books are a fantastic resource for tutoring. I have used them for many years and they are extremely good value. The children also enjoy using them. I particularly like the CEM test textbooks.
