Review of "CGP Revision Guides"
CGP are known for their line of light hearted revision guides.Ranging from primary school all the way to college Alevel study.I used CGP for my GCSEs two years ago and for that purpose they were absolutley fine, however i used them for chemistry and biology at AS level and they simply did not suffice. While they were great for gaining a basic view of topics and a basic understanding they lacked depth and detail needed to achieve anything above a C. These are great for a last minute read as they do explain concepts in a way which are understanable. Unlike some textbooks they dont contain any real examples or practise questions.
I found the psychology Alevel CGP book to be okay, but a definite NO for chemistry and biology. If its colour and simplicity your after with a few light hearted jokes along the way then these books are for you. Always double check to see what your exam board is as CGP dont cater for all exam boards. Mainly AQA and OCR but do cater for edexcel too.
I always found the diagrams very useful and they organise topics very well and summarise everything within 40 pages.
Great as an aid to revision but not neccesarily fantastic as using it as your main reference.
