What do you look for when selecting revision guides? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was assisting my younger brother with his GCSE's and I realised that no one can ever recommend a good revision guide and as a result, we are directed to all the resources.

    What do you look for when selecting revision guides?

    I look for ones with lots of focus on the exam questions, going over exam technique and breaking down what I need to do for each question. I also look for a simple layout that's easy to understand!

    I would recommend the CGP revision guides when it comes to general revision. But I prefer the Collins textbooks when it comes to practice questions too

    GCSE is just CGP hands down.

    A level you have to think about it and CGP might not have an up to date one anyway.
