    I'm going to be buying revision guides over the spring or summer holidays. I have to do a language as a GCSE and I've found the new 9-1 CGP books. Should I buy :
    *1 revision guide and 1 workbook or
    *1 book that has a revision guide, work to go with it and a CD for listening questions?
    By the way, the books I've found are:
    *GCSE AQA German - The revision guide
    *GCSE AQA German - The workbook
    *GCSE AQA German - Revision and practice (with CD)
    Please let me know about your experiences with these books, which one was better and if they all cover the exact same content (if they don't which revision guide goes into more detail?). Thank you :-)

    I recommend you get 1 book that has a revision guide, work to go with it and a CD for listening questions as there will be more content, you'll be able to practice more.... a workbook + revision guide wouldn't be worth its money imo.

    why not
    I personally think that first you need to have a firm grasp of all the key concepts within german, in grammar etc before you start revising a list of words. Trust me, knowing grammatical concepts is way more important than knowing cool words.

    Of course, you should know a lot of words, adjectives, but first make sure you know your grammar inside out.

    Also,there are way too many words on there to learn imo

    Yes but if you learn all the vocabulary by memory then on the reading and listening paper you are guaranteed full marks. Grammar only helps for your writing which you already do before hand
