    Hi, I'm currently doing Edexcel GCSE Science, and CGP released an exam practice workbook targeted at grade 8-9, but the exam board its specified for is AQA, and there is no edexcel version.

    I want to purchase it because I think I'd get some good familiarity with harder style questions and how to achieve them, but will it potentially lead me in the wrong direction because I'm doing edexcel?

    Id say the point of a workbook is to apply your knowledge and practice... so go for it

    In some instances it might, because of the content you study but some of the topics are the same and it's a workbook so I don't see why not.

    With other subjects I'd say yes, but the maths specifications are virtually identical. I'd say get it

    Doesn't really matter. All boards have the same stuff, it's just how their papers and gradings are structured that differs.
