    I never look at revision guides but I thought lets give them a try. I noticed a lot of things are not in the revison guides, for example in chemistry some reactions that have a good amount of space given to them in the text book do not even appear in the revision guide. Is this because the are not really important and probably will not come up in exams?

    I think it's because revisions guides try to sum up the most important bits of each topic, often leaving out other bits which might just be as important. Revision guides are made to be concise and summarised, more so than not at the expense of content and depth.
    So no, it's not because they're not important or won't appear in exams.
    Tbh, I'm not a big fan of revision guides - far too jumpy and leave me asking more questions than have been answered!
