    just that the revision guides go into depth, alot of them assume you understand some topics already.

    I cannot stand CGP hate 'em only had one revision Guide from them and it did not help in the slightest (Maths)

    The BBC ones i find are to vague as they have to reach across several exam boards. The best ones are ones which are suited directly to your course and your course only.

    Yeah, and there's no point because then apparently everything is a "key point", which sort of eliminates the whole purpose of "key" points.
