I had cgp last year and found it too basic when I was aiming for a B. Maybe try York Notes then. :-)

I didn't do Of Mice and Men, but I had CGP for The Crucible an York Notes for To Kill A Mockingbird. I found that the CGP was far far far more useful. York Notes is very basic. I'd suggest reading the reviews on Amazon.

I would also recommend MrBuff's videos on youtube if you haven't checked the out yet. He has a playlist dedicated to OMAN and A* analysis for it
Personally, I have the York Notes guide, which is decent, but there's only basic analysis. There are some useful exam techniques in there though...like using embedded quotations and stuff.

I did TKAM. I purchased both books. For the CA if you still do one I corrorborrated both books.

For the exam, I winged it. Couldn't remember reading the chapter that came up at all. Obviously I would not recommend this though.

If you don't have access to these books via pdf or library, go for CGP. Alternatively visit SparkNotes. Lots of useful info there.
