    My class notes in geography (AQA A) were terrible, so I've been using the CGP book to revise from, but I just flicked through my textbook and found that there seems to be so much extra information about stuff in it

    Is there enough detail/information in the CGP book to get an A* from just using it?

    definitely. although if there are case studies that you learnt in school that are better known to you/more thorough then i'd choose them instead of the ones in the cgp guide. everything else is enough

    It has all the notes and things you need to know to get you B+, but the rest is just practice tbh. I also used the CGP for A-levels.

    How much practise do you need to do?
