Can I get an A If I only use the CGP revision guide and past papers for as level bioWatch
My teachers said that I’d fail without the textbooks and I’m being pressured into reading it so I’d advice reading the cgp guide and lightly reading the textbook
Or should I do this thing where if I understand a topic, I'll use a revision guide, but if I dont understand it, I'll use a textbook. But then the textbook may have info that i need to memorise - not just understand
My last option is to Use the textbook and skip out the parts that I thnk is irrelevant using the spec. But then I may risk the chance of skipping important detail.
- What would you do if you were me?
I’d use the textbook for the first time e.g for a topic and make notes as it has everything and make sure to cross-check with the spec after that I’d stick with the revision guide (it’s what I’d like to do)
So for a while, Ive been using the textbook, and I realise that most of the stuff in the textbook is alot of extra information and alot of stuff from the exams are just appliction for core knowledge . So do you think i can get an A at As if I only use the cgp revision guide, past papers and use the textbook if I don't understand something. I'd also probably use the textbook summary questions and spec. I'm basically substituting the textbook for the revision guide
Ive decided to 1st use the revision guide. As it's simpler and easiar to understand, then Id use the textbook (with spec). The textbook waffles on more so i find it harder to understand the main process/point.
