    CGP are utter shite.
    The CGP biology textbooks aren't that bad. Although mine is for A-level.

    For GCSE I used both and did pretty well. Although I didn't utilise past papers very well :/

    Depends what learner you are, personally I make flash cards from the revision guides and then watch a video after just to further my understanding, then if it's a difficult concept I'll make a poster with annotations, but of course this can be long-winded and time consuming and you could understand the information to the extent I learned it much quicker than me

    Maybe revision posters and videos would be a better use of your time then as opposed to flash cards!

    CGP, you learn much more quicker because each video is about 10 minutes from what I've seen. But that's just how I learn.

    I use CGP books because MyGCSEsScience don't have the specification I do.
