hey, i used a gcse book for my igcse sciences. it wasn't bad at all, although there were a couple of topics in the igcse syllabus that was not in gcses, but surely your teacher must have provided you with notes on this. i'm sorry i cant remember what the book was called
however, my science teacher back then did say that the gcse book covers about 95% of the igcse material. and...well, 95% is more than enough for an A* :tongue: unless you absolutely want 100%, then i guess working off the syllabus and researching the extra material is sufficient.

Which exam board are you taking?
If you do Edexcel get on getrevising.co.uk, and search CGPwned, it has word doc revision guides for all 3 sciences
Good Luck x

I like the CGP books - they're very user friendly.
Do be aware though that they don't cover absolutely 100% of everything.

The official Pearson books do cover everything but they're absolutely horrible - so dry. I'd rather watch paint dry than read them.

We use a combination of both. We find the topic in the Pearson book, and then refer to the CGP mostly, but pop back to the Pearson one if there's a specific aspect that isn't covered by CGP. Bit faffy I know but I couldn't bear only using Pearson.
