Personally I wont recommend getting any books, just wait till september and start then I did that and should get some good grades so it not worth it. Just enjoy the long summer and get a job or something, you need to relax before A Levels, they are a lot harder than GCSE's.

I already have a job, and a volunteer job. I will still relax, I'm not going to be chained to my desk for 12 hours a day, but I want to gain some confidence in my subjects before September.

, I don't really like CGP books because they put too much on the pages. I prefer simple, boring revision guides lol. I don't need "Cut out and keep bagpipers" to help me with my music GCSE for example.
Lol - I suppose it's all down to personal preference, but there's a considerable shift in style from GCSE to A-Level style with CGP. There are considerably fewer jokes, and it's approached in a more mature way

Have a read of a few in a library (or a book shop .. ) see what you think.

Thanks! xxxxxxxxx
Okay, I just got them. They seem pretty good. For each chapter (e.g. Chapter 1: Algebra and functions), they summarise the key points to remember (e.g. what a difference of squares is).

Then they have about 4 worked examples and 3 worked exam style questions. Then there's a revision exercise with about 10 questions and then a "Test Yourself" section with answers. The revision section questions are at the back of the book.

There's also a exam style paper at the back.

Overall, they do seem quite good, and easy to use.
