I've currently got the OCR A endorsed (Oxford) textbook but it has a lot of content and is quite difficult to read as it is overwhelming. Would buying the CGP Student book be worth it/helpful Name:  cgp.jpg

I'm also worried that it's currently 3 months till exams and I have no Bio notes what so ever.
If you do know of any other good revision guides do recommend

I find that the CGP revision guides are really good. I currently have the A2-Level biology revision guide and it is good. I have CGP revision guides for all my subjects and I find that they contain pretty much all the information you need at A-level. There are always a few things which lacks a bit of detail but generally I find them very helpful.

3 months is plenty of time really to get your head down and starting making notes.

Best of luck to you.

Do you prefer it over your normal textbook?

Would you say the revision guide is better over the student book ( more detailed) basically a bit like a textbook I think.

Well, I did have a CGP stats student book which was really good. I wouldn't say the revision guide is better than the student book, the student book has a bit more detail. I only talked about the revision guides because I tend to use them more because I've usually already completed the module and so I use it to go over the module. The CGP books are definitely better than any other textbooks (in my opinion).

I'll go for the student book then

Hmm do you mean to say that you own both the student book and revision guide?

Thanks for helping me choose

I have the student book for a few subjects (chemistry and stats) and revision guides for other subjects.

You'd be better off getting th student book, it has lots of detail and the revision guide is a bit more condensed.

Just went through and ordered the CGP Biology Student book for £17!

Would it be as worth it for chemistry as there is a lot less content?

The chemistry one is really good, has everything you need. I'd say it is definitely worth it.

Did you bother making bio notes of your CGP guide? I'm so sorry for all the questions.

I've never really been one for making notes. I only really make notes for things that you have to parrot learn. Although I have started making notes using the CGP book amongst other things (other textbooks, websites).
