I'm revising for triple science exams 9-1 but idk if I should spend my time using the CGP books if they don't cover everything.

Does anyone know if the CGP guide misses some info out?

Will I get higher than a 7 if I use the CGP revision guide and stuff like test papers and videos?

Hey Mia,

I use CGP revision guides for each of my subjects and I closely study the specification whilst using them.

It depends on the CGP book, but in my own personal experience I do find that details on the specification are not always present in these books, however, I stress that this is a very rare occasion.

To be honest, You will get above a 7 if you read the specification in conjunction with the revision guides, anything omitted by the guides is easily picked up as you read through the spec.

Best Wishes,

the cgp does miss quite a bit of detail and there’s too much bants in its place but if you want a good one i wholeheartedly recommend the collins books:

Of course they miss loads of stuff out, look at how thin they are. The textbook covers everything in the specification so of course something like a CGP book isn't going to have anywhere near the amount you need to know. They're good for key points but not underlying knowledge required.

I think revision guides are ... guides! They help with key points and quick summaries and question tips, but probably don't cover everything in detail.
I may be good to have different sources. Revision guides, youtube videos, past papers and maybe free revision websites like www.senecalearning.com and others.
