    My daughter is starting her gcse's this year and I would like to help her from home, so was thinking about buying a coursework book on maths and sciences. She is probably lower to average ability. Could someone please recommend a book or two we can use to study from at home.

    Good ones for science are CPG ones, I believe they do them for all exam boards and using them I got 2 A's and a B in the sciences. Can get them online or usually in book stores

    CGP are good for the sciences; for maths, I'd recommend Letts or even just a class textbook if she can bring it home

    Many schools offer CGP books at a cheaper price - it might be worth checking with the school what they recommend.

    I would go for cambridge (9-1) higher as shes working from home she will have the resources to push her self and achieve higher than average. I would reccomend cambridge ones....
