    YES GET THEM! They cover everything in the spec and nothing else, I memorised them, did past papers and nothing else

    Revision guides are really good resources and I reccommend getting them for subjects where you need to learn a lot of content for!
    They will condense the information into shorter and more manageable form for you to learn from for the exam and I really have relied on revision guides for both my GCSEs and A levels!
    I miss them now!!!

    I used them and found them useful and worth the low cost my school sold them at (£3 per book or so), getting a second hand set would bring the cost down and make them more worth the money. I would recommend using them to supplement your class notes when creating your revision resources (notes etc.). I would say just revising straight from the book is not a great strategy but can be done.

    Yes they are amazing as they cover everything, which is superb if there is something that you missed. For me, the book was better then the teacher!
