    It is a series of videos with someone talking about all of things that could come up in the maths exam. I have used it but i find only some aspects of it help but it all depends on how you learn.

    Is that the CD with the woman going through all the things you need to know for GCSE maths exams?

    If so, it's amazing - really good for pre-past paper revision. I thank that and plenty of past papers for my grade in the exams (stupid coursework).

    I used it for GSCE, it was really good. However, it can be a bit tempting to flick open a browser to the internet and procrastinate.

    I thought it was a bit rubbish to be honest. But I think I'm in the minority here...

    It depends on how you learn really.

    Well basically I went through past papers, and the questions I didn't understand, I looked up the topic of those questions on Mathswatch. Than applied what Mathswatch taught me to other similar questions. I was kinda exaggerating that it got me my A* (that was all due to doing looads of past papers) but it did help alot.

    The woman is pretty patronizing, but otherwise I think it's great! I got 44% in my mock, and then used Mathswatch and past papers for about a month, and got an overall high A. 8D

    The clips show you how to do the questions and then gives you examples, so you can check you've understood it. It's very good, imo.
