I am wondering on whether any other revision guides that are better or as good as CGP (as thats what most people recommend) and if there is any use by using more then one revision guide.

CGP was great for me when looking to build a foundation for my notes, however when looking at the spec of the sciences in particular I found that the CGP books often glossed over some parts and didnt really give enough detail to get the top grades. I liked the collins textbooks for the sciences and thought that they really helped me with info to aim for the higher grades. For the other subjects id look to utilise school books/ textbooks with youtube but really good luck with the exams and try not to stress

If you're doing English Literature, some of the York Notes stuff is really good. For Geography, at A-Level I pretty much exclusively used the CGP revision guide which was all I really needed.

On a slightly different note, check out your local charity shops, there are a lot of guides now sitting on their book shelves just waiting to be grabbed up by students.
