Hi! I think CGP is great! I just got some Revision Guides from school and although the Year 9 SATS are scrapped we still had to do the homework... I'm not really that bothered now cos it's CGP and not some other boring book. It makes it fun looking at the dinky lil' pictures! lol! Thanks for all the great books... Please keep on making them as fun and positive as they already are! Thanks again!

I love CGP. It is one of my best books. I've only used CGP books for my tests and my SATS. Thanks.

If schools get it for like £2.00 why don't we get it for that price?

CGP books are wonderful... Just ordered them for all my subjects so will hopefully pass my GCSE'S! Thanks CGP x
Emily — Haslemere, United Kingdom — 27 Nov 2008 at 17:21:44
I love reading the science books you made.
Tobiloba Ojuri — Lagos , Nigeria — 27 Nov 2008 at 16:10:36
Why is postage very expensive... utterly disgusting and disparaging. Hopeless.
Jo — Sutton, United Kingdom — 26 Nov 2008 at 20:41:43
This site is dumb if I was you I would not go on it.
Gizem — London, United Kingdom — 26 Nov 2008 at 19:22:23
How long does it take to deliver the order?? Thankyou x
Kazia Scott — Treharris , United Kingdom — 26 Nov 2008 at 18:03:16
Guestbook Editor: We aim to despatch all orders placed before 5pm the very same day so you should get brilliant next day delivery.
I got a Level 5 with the CGP books!! Thanks!
Jasmine — London, United Kingdom — 25 Nov 2008 at 20:48:46
I used it for the KS2 SATS, it's wonderful!!!!!!! Thanks! It's really funny (made SATS enjoyable!!)
Yasmin — London, United Kingdom — 25 Nov 2008 at 20:40:21
Hello, I like CGP a lot. I was using only CGP books for my revision for GCSE Double Award Science and I achieved A and A*'s, so it was really helpful for me. I am only after ordering books for my AS-Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics - hopefully they will be as efficient revison as before. Thank You !!
Jakub — Cookstown, United Kingdom — 25 Nov 2008 at 19:31:07
I love CGP! I've been using your books since my KS2 SATS and I haven't found anything better! You got me through Maths GCSE and I got an A! I've just got the Chemistry and Biology AS ones... my only complaint is that you don't have AS-Level Spanish and French!
Laura Simmons — Southport, United Kingdom — 24 Nov 2008 at 21:34:57
Hiya! Your books are great. Can I fill in a form and order a catalogue online or is it just by phoning in? Thanks!
LaLaLand — Ldn., United Kingdom — 24 Nov 2008 at 20:14:28
Guestbook Editor: Glad you like our books! Just give us a ring on 0800 1712 712 and let us know your address — we'll pop a catalogue straight in the post.
It would be helpful when ordering to be taken back to the exact same place, as I wasted a lot of time going back to the right section (especially in Maths).
— , United Kingdom — 23 Nov 2008 at 18:19:55
Guestbook Editor: Thanks for your feedback — we're always looking for ways to improve our website, so we'll definitely keep your comments in mind!
The books are very useful but the prices are too much!

(Commenting on book IHR52, AS-Level ICT Revision Guide
I think this ICT revision guide is fantastic and caters to the needs of students who need a good revision book to aid them with their learning process. I highly recommend teachers teaching the new OCR AS Level to purchase this cheap book for the students. As a head of ICT it is brilliant.
Mandhir Gill — Harrow, United Kingdom — 23 Nov 2008 at 11:54:42
What books will you be publishing in the near future?
— , United Kingdom — 23 Nov 2008 at 11:26:56
Guestbook Editor: There are plans to publish some new A2 level books next year, and probably lots of other lovely books too. All you need to do is keep an eye on the 'What's New' page on our website for info on our latest books.
I got the Maths and Science study books last Fri from school, I love them.
- — -, United Kingdom — 23 Nov 2008 at 11:22:12
You already have really good revision books for GCSE French, GCSE German and GCSE Spanish, are there any plans to publish one for GCSE Italian?
Alex Francioni — Luton , United Kingdom — 23 Nov 2008 at 09:47:46
Guestbook Editor: We're sorry — there aren't any plans to publish a GCSE Italian book at the moment. We'll add it to the list of ones people would like us to make.
How come you don't do any AS/A2 History books?
Natasha — Walthamstow, United Kingdom — 22 Nov 2008 at 20:36:49
Guestbook Editor: Ooh...good question. The thing is we can only make so many books at once — our busy little editors are working their socks off! Thanks for the suggestion though.
I think your books are great... the new front cover designs are cool too.
Simal — , United Kingdom — 21 Nov 2008 at 18:26:16
Found it very difficult to locate some of the books as most of the codes had changed. In the end had to phone up and place the remainder of the school order.
Mrs Burnell Gay — Edmonton, United Kingdom — 21 Nov 2008 at 14:47:16
Guestbook Editor: We're sorry you've had trouble ordering your books — we do have to change the codes from time to time when updated versions of our books come out. We hope our Customer Service team were nice and helpful.
I ordered some GCSE French revision guides for my son last night as he has mocks coming up and they have just been delivered. Fantastic service, thank you.
Sally — Stroud , United Kingdom — 21 Nov 2008 at 10:41:52
I hate the way that at the bottom of the pages in the Revision Guide you people try to speak cool...but you actually sound quite stupid! It doesn't really help at all...so what's the point???
Satnaam Virdee — Dartford, United Kingdom — 20 Nov 2008 at 19:22:44
We use this book at school and we get one each! They are truly ace.
Rachael Millett — Pontefract, United Kingdom — 20 Nov 2008 at 18:14:23
CGP - possibly the BEST invention ever! They make revision seem interesting, something which I never thought would happen! Also I love the way in which they explain stuff v-e-r-y c-l-e-a-r-l-y, it's a big help, so thanks guys =)
Kate — Hampshire, United Kingdom — 19 Nov 2008 at 17:17:41
CGP has helped me through all of my revision and helped me get good marks. Thank you!
Heather — Hull, United Kingdom — 18 Nov 2008 at 19:26:30
Good but the prices should be a little bit cheaper and also you should be able to do some parts of the test online and then press mark and it marks it and it tells you what you need to work on.
— , United Kingdom — 17 Nov 2008 at 19:33:52
Guestbook Editor: We promise we try to keep our prices as low as we possibly can... but we have to make some pennies to pay our busy little editors — otherwise there'd be nobody to make the books!
I have to say, I love your demonfighting section though I think I'll be going for Option A. Also love the books, it's nice to be able to revise without being bored out of your mind =]

Which exam board are these practice exams for?
Rachel — London , United Kingdom — 15 Nov 2008 at 18:54:37
Guestbook Editor: These ones are spot on for all the exam boards!
These revision books have helped me get my goal of 10 A* grades at GCSE. Trust me they are great!

(Commenting on book PRBR51, AS-Level Physics OCR B (Advancing Physics) Complete Revision & Practice
Just to be pendantic, OCR B is "Advancing Physics", *not* Salters. You might be confusing some potential customers...
Kate Lee — London, United Kingdom — 14 Nov 2008 at 13:36:25
Guestbook Editor: Ooh... thanks for spotting that and letting us know! We've sorted it out now on our system and the right words will appear tomorrow as if by magic!
I've loved these CGP books so I've just ordered some for AS Maths. I realised there were no A2-Level Maths books, are there going to be any published as I'd really like to buy them for A2?
Girly Whirly — Bolton, United Kingdom — 13 Nov 2008 at 20:41:26
Guestbook Editor: We're really sorry, but we're not looking to publish any A2-Level Maths books just yet. We know the courses will be changing in 2010/11 and we're hoping to update our Maths range then.
Thanks to CGP I got a 5c in Maths last year! (For YR 5 mock SATS)
Bethany — Lubenham , United Kingdom — 13 Nov 2008 at 20:24:00
I think the CGP books are very educational and help me a lot! Well Done!

Really like the syle and content - bought KS3 and GCSE books. Speed of delivery is exceptional. Thanks.
Steve Harris — Heswall, United Kingdom — 13 Nov 2008 at 12:26:09
I think your books are great (: But the website isn't all that great - it lacks information and there isn't a lot to look at or do. If it was like your books it would be AMAZING!! XD
Lauren — Turner, United Kingdom — 13 Nov 2008 at 12:00:59
My first online order went well, but it would be good to see a "continue shopping" option instead of having to go back.
H Brooks — Swindon , United Kingdom — 13 Nov 2008 at 11:07:12
You have nothing on Human Biology AQA. This means I can't do interactive revision on your site. Please could you put AQA Human Biology on?
Chloe — Reading, United Kingdom — 12 Nov 2008 at 19:58:12
Heey! The CGP books are kool!
Chloe — Askam, United Kingdom — 12 Nov 2008 at 15:16:21
This must be the most user friendly system I have ever tried to order from. Stress free! Thank you.
Sandra Cortie — London , United Kingdom — 12 Nov 2008 at 14:48:38
I think these books are very annoying! Why is there a page all about cows in the AS Maths book? I really hope I don't pay the wages of the person who wrote this book!
Ailish — Northallerton, United Kingdom — 12 Nov 2008 at 13:29:31
I love your books. I could not revise without them. Please please please produce a Revision Guide for GCSE Latin and GCSE Electronics :)
Tess — , United Kingdom — 11 Nov 2008 at 20:49:43
The KS3 Science Workbook helped me a lot with homework and exams. Thanks so much x
Ellie — Wandsworth, United Kingdom — 09 Nov 2008 at 12:14:52
I don't think this site is very good because it doesn't have all the subjects in Maths covered!!
Beth — Bates, United Kingdom — 08 Nov 2008 at 23:42:07
Guestbook Editor: We'd be dead grateful if you could tell us what we're missing — we try to cover all the stuff students and teachers need in our books, so we'd hate to have gaps!
These books are fantastic for revising - they are set out in clear, easy ways that make revising so much easier. I actually look forward to revising when I get to use one of these books!
Teresa — Dunbar , United Kingdom — 08 Nov 2008 at 17:55:42

No Name — London, United Kingdom — 08 Nov 2008 at 17:01:36
I love CGP books, they''re easy to revise from and have little jokes in them too...Yay CGP!!!
Henna — Bradford , United Kingdom — 08 Nov 2008 at 16:51:48
I think this is really helpful, but only if you can find your way around. I have got two Science tests to revise for, but I can't really find out how to find what I need to know. Thanks.
Hannah — Eastbourne, United Kingdom — 06 Nov 2008 at 21:42:27
Guestbook Editor: If you're looking for books — our product pages are the best place to start. Or if you're looking for online revision stuff, try our interactive pages. Good luck with your tests!
Cool algebra quiz - really helped my revision.

Hey guys who are reading this. I can very proudly say this book is an amazing piece of work. It has all the great information you need in it and is perfect for all you young women and men to get the C you need. This really is the magic for achieving your C grade :)
Penelope — Birmingham, United Kingdom — 06 Nov 2008 at 18:20:03
Hey! I could never revise - until I found these books! Do you have (or are you making) a book for drama at GCSE? Or a Spanish book for A level? Because I can't find one ANYWHERE and it would really help! Thanks :)
Robyn Rhiannon — Liverpool, United Kingdom — 06 Nov 2008 at 17:18:56
Guestbook Editor: Oh no... of all the subjects and levels we've got, you want two we don't make. We're not planning to make any soon either — sorry!

CGP is the best...I hardly revise from any other revision books. Whohoooo! I'm revising right now for my mock GCSEs - thanx to CGP I'm not bored!

The KS3 SATS have been scrapped, so why would we need to buy practice books?
— , United Kingdom — 05 Nov 2008 at 16:35:10
Guestbook Editor: Well... it's highly likely that teachers will still want to test students at the end of Year 9 and you still have to learn about all the same topics — so our practice books are a great way to make sure you know your stuff for ANY tests you have.
Just popped in after seeing a very interesting advert in a mag ...love the feel of the whole enterprise. Keep it up, good work, well done.
Mike Brampton — Worthing, United Kingdom — 05 Nov 2008 at 10:59:01
I have always relied on your fantastic books for every year of exams for as long as I can remember. I'm now doing AS and everything's a new course. Do you have any books for History or Geography please? Or are there any getting published soon? Thanks for all your help so far!
Sophie — Worksop, United Kingdom — 05 Nov 2008 at 10:18:27
Guestbook Editor: We'll be publishing an AS-Level Geography Revision Guide in January, but we haven't got any plans for AS History yet — sorry!
I like your books.
Anonymous — Anonymous , United Kingdom — 05 Nov 2008 at 09:01:15
It'd be easier if you did a Psychology and Sociology Revision Guide, as they are hard to find anywhere else for the AQA exam board.
Tasha — , United Kingdom — 04 Nov 2008 at 20:33:45
Guestbook Editor: Which level are you looking for? We have books for both these subects for AS-Level but not for GCSE — hope that helps.
Very good service.

Is there gonna be a 2009 Media Studies revision book?
K M — Essex, United Kingdom — 03 Nov 2008 at 19:43:49
Guestbook Editor: Our Media Studies Revision Guide is spot on for the current courses — just type TVR41 into the product search box and it should magically appear!
I luv using ur site. It's amazing!! I can luk for Maths easily n revise. Thanx...x :D
Freha — Rochdale, United Kingdom — 03 Nov 2008 at 19:15:54
Your company always stood above the rest because you never charged postage. It felt like you cared about Children's Education. Now you're charging me for 3 books that none of our local bookshops stocked. Not a good feeling!
Mike Bicknell — Warborough, United Kingdom — 02 Nov 2008 at 21:54:01
Guestbook Editor: We're really sorry to hear you're not happy about the postage charges. It took us ages to research the charges and we've made them as fair as possible. If you'd like to get your books from a bookshop, they can always order them for you and we'll deliver them the very next day.
Your books were recommended to me by a friend as my daughter has just started school and I am keen to help her as much as possible. As a first time customer I found your website easy to use and I found just what I was looking for with the help of your information for each book. Thank you.
samantha west — melton mowbray, United Kingdom — 02 Nov 2008 at 18:57:01
You responded to a query from someone on 25th October telling them how to get the search box up. I followed your instructions and only got product info. Previously, I'm sure it was easier to search for specific things. In spite of that, your books are still the ones I recommend to most of my pupils! Do you have a workbook for Child Development please? Thanks for your efforts to make education enjoyable.
Sari — Croydon, United Kingdom — 02 Nov 2008 at 16:08:47
Guestbook Editor: Hmmm... wonder what's going on there. We'll have a good look around the website and make sure everything's working just as it should! We're sorry, but we don't have a Workbook to go with the Child Development Revision Guide — we'll bear it in mind for future publishing projects though.
I now have the courage to sit in the middle of the dining room at my school and revise, because of your awesome revision books - they make the scary world of Maths slightly easier to comprehend! (See how cool I am!)
Laura : ) — Leicester, United Kingdom — 02 Nov 2008 at 14:10:08
Are figures from the Study Guides available in a form I can download into PowerPoint? I find them very useful in the classroom, but it is tiring having to scan from the books all the time. Can I also bring to your notice an error in the Gibbs-Helmholtz equation in your A2 Chemistry Study Guide: the entropy change in this equation is the entropy change of the system itself - not, as stated, the total entropy change in the system plus surroundings.
Paul Conibear — Cardiff, United Kingdom — 02 Nov 2008 at 04:21:48
Guestbook Editor: Thanks for all your feedback — we've checked it out, but we could do with some more details. Would you mind getting back in touch and letting us have your email address?
We're not sure which books you need the figures from, but we do have some CD-Roms for GCSE Science. If you'd like some more details, just get back to us and we'll get straight back to you.
