    Hi, i'm doing my core science GCSEs this year and was wondering if anyone knows any in depth good revision guides? I've heard the cgp ones are quite good, but other people say they're not very in depth with all the detail. but im not sure. Im aiming to get an A or A*.

    Personally, for gcse's id say cgp is fine because that covers everything the exam board can test you on.
    But if you want a bit more detail i found this make helpful

    www.mygcsescience.com all core/unit 1's videos are free together with cgp books. I'm aiming for A/A* and our school gave us the books so they must be good. I'd say its past papers that give you the edge as some of it is understanding the exam technique

    I've known people who used the CGP books and got A*s. I use them and although they are less professional, they are still good for me! You could, however, use the AQA guides (if thats what exam board you have) which are laid out more neatly and pretty much include the same stuff.
