very helpful answering my questions over the phone!

Hi, do you know if you will be publishing a revision guide for GCSE Computing / Computer Studies / Computer Science any time soon? And how about Edexcel's GCSE geography specifications, B in particular?
Bob — London, United Kingdom — 29 Aug 2014 at 12:44:32
Guestbook Editor: We'll almost certainly be making a GCSE Computing Revision Guide, but I don't think it'll be out in the next year, sadly. It's also unlikely that we'll have an Edexcel GCSE Geography book in the foreseeable future. Sorry — we are busy making plenty of other exciting books and digital products, we promise. (We're excited, anyway.)
Hello, Do your aqa further maths books include revision to achieve A* with Distinction? Just wondering, because the web page only says A*-C.

Guestbook Editor: They do indeed — thanks for pointing that out. We've now added this info to the descriptions on our website.
I would 110% recommend buying all of the complete course student books for each of the sciences. Out of 4 or 5 revision books for each subject these were by far the most helpful and taught me things even my teachers couldn't explain. They're also brilliant for elaborating to higher levels where other books don't - I achieved A* grades in all 3 sciences and only revised from these books! Thank you CGP!

Guestbook Editor: Excellent! Congratulations on your results.
When will KS2 humanities be out?
Adam — london, United Kingdom — 25 Aug 2014 at 22:44:37
Guestbook Editor: Soon... all our new KS2 Geography and History books should be out by the start of October. They're definitely worth looking forward to.
Hello, I really think your books are great, and they really help me through my time at school. Recently, your prices have been creeping up though. Your revision guides used to be £4.95 but the new ones are £6.95 (further maths, for example). Oh, talking about further maths, you should add that to your "what's new" page.
Also, your books without their names printed on the edge irritate me so badly! I realise it is a bit difficult to put a name on the edge of a thin book, but please try, it would be so much easier to identify on my bookshelf.
One more thing, hope you don't mind me asking, are you male or female?
Bob — London, United Kingdom — 25 Aug 2014 at 08:01:14
Guestbook Editor: Hi — thanks for your comments. We pride ourselves on keeping our prices low, and many of our Revision Guides still have an RRP of £4.95. The thing is, some of the subjects we now cover, like AQA Level 2 Further Maths, are taken by a relatively small number of students. This means we can't print as many copies, which nudges the price up a bit. But we're still cheaper than the competition for these subjects. (And you’re absolutely right that Further Maths should be on the What’s New page. We’ll get on the case.)
All our new books now have the title printed on the spine, or on the far-right of the back cover, so it’s easier to find them on a shelf. We’ve been phasing this in for a couple of years, so eventually all our books will be labelled like this. It’s a glorious vision of the future.
Finally, I’m gender-neutral for the purposes of the CGP Guestbook. In real life... it’s pretty much the same situation, come to think of it.
Hi- are you planning on bringing your continuous assessment tests back? I need the Autumn tests for Year 3-6 but can't seem to find them online now. Hope you can help! Thanks. Lizzy.
Lizzy — Newcastle , United Kingdom — 10 Aug 2014 at 10:31:00
Guestbook Editor: Hello! We haven't made versions of our Continuous Assessment Tests for the new KS2 Maths curriculum, I'm afraid. We still have some of our old CATS in stock, but we've sold out of the Autumn Term tests for Years 3-5, unfortunately.
If you'd like more information, just get in touch with our Customer Services team (the email address is at the top of this page) — they'll be happy to help.
Will there be a WJEC Computer Science book anytime soon? (GCSE)

Guestbook Editor: I'm not completely sure... but it definitely won't be as soon as all that, I'm afraid. Sorry!
CGP has a Amazing Range of books for IGCSE Edexcel, (Which i took this year). Waiting for my results eagerly - as they went great (Hoping A's and A*'s in Math/Sciences :D)... just because of CGP Revision guides coming to the rescue, just before the exams. Love ya guys. :)

Guestbook Editor: We love ya too. Good luck with your results.
Your books are fab! Love the layout and the explanations are easy to understand. Thankyou ?? Btw I had sausage, mash and corn on the cob for tea, it was nice.
Alex Howell — Leigh, United Kingdom — 05 Aug 2014 at 20:59:47
Guestbook Editor: That does sound nice. I haven't had mash for ages.
I had pasta for tea ;)
