On The One Show on BBC One, a report was shown that 5 of the top exam boards (AQA, SQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC)that up to 6% of the questions were found to have mistakes - a percentage that would make or break students in passing their exams. Publishers have a regime of assessing the books before being published and have apologised for the mistakes made and also have said that they will correct the mistakes asap.
ULTIMATE QUESTIONS: How do you feel in using revision guides from the exam boards? If there are mistakes in gcse maths revision guides, what about revision guides for other gcse subjects or subjects from other levels e.g A levels? Can we really trust these books and are they worth the money?
Your opinions will be great

Well of course they are worth the money. How else are we supposed to get our information from?
Additionally, the relevant is today's The One Show episode.
The report starts from the beginning.
