I used the CGP AS and A2 level Biology AQA revision guides when studying for my A-levels. The books usually cost around £10, but seeing as my school had bought them in bulk and was selling them off for £3 each, I figured I'd give it a go. I was never very good at revising, but figured I should...

Can be a bit boring to look at a page for ages.

CGP revision guides, in my opinion aswell as notes from teachers are one of the best tools for revising. It has everything you need to know in the very concisley and in language you can easily understand. GCSE's are very boring, with all the revisions, but the revision guides are availiable in...

Fun, easy to follow, clear diagrams

Sometimes there is too much underlining

Revision can often be boring, dull and tedious. Having to sort through endless notes and boring revision guides just adds to the problem. Let's face it, revision is boring. Right? Well I agree to a certain extent but CGP guides make revision a little easier and less dull. ~ So, what are CGP...

not enough info

When revising a subject or topic it is never easy. The best way to do this is by making it as easy as possible. The C.G.P revision books understand and have made their revision books both easy and practical to use. The C.G.P Company are situated at Newcastle upon Tyne. C.G.P stands for...

hard to understand,

As a 17 year old student i thought i'd give my opinion of these guides. Personally i own quite a few, and i have found them useful. They are humourous (kind of) and they have good diagrams, unfortunatly they aren't idiot proof, and you need to know your stuff before you can use them, which can...

can't really think of any!

When I was between the ages of 14 and 16, I found the CGP revision guides very helpful whilst studying for my GCSEs. I used the books for English, Maths (intermediate tier), French, Biology, Chemistry and Physics (all higher tier). I believe the best books were the science and maths ones - the...

So the exam season is upon us once more with it's greatest curse of all - REVISION! I know, I know, I mustn't say that word (will wash my mouth out with soapy water) but lets face it, it has too be done and thats where these guides come in. I was first introduced to these books by my school at...

waaaay to hard to put down

I'm in year 11 so I have already done small parts of my final GCSE's. In year 9 we had the S.A.T.S, what a nightmare! But the CGP Maths, English and Science revision guides were fantastic. They had humour, great pictures and clear, useful information. The questions at the end of each section...

Get 2 grades higher than you were expected.

Can be a little laborious revising.

At the ages of 14 & 15, i was an absolute slacker, messing about in lessons at every oppurtunity, and getting myself into all sorts of trouble. Then, when year 11 came, i decided it was time for a change, if i really wanted a good career, i'd have to 'pull my socks up', and fast. Having struggled...
