I have access to the revision guide and the textbook for most of my subjects. But the revision guide is like a quarter of the size of a textbook. Obviously it would save a lot of time and energy to use just the revision guide. So I was wondering, what’s the highest grade you can get using them and nothing else?

It wasn’t the revision guide but the coursebook for CGP got me straight As (would’ve been A*’s if there weren’t other things going on in my life)

If your just using the revision guide then not very well but if your using it for content and then doing exam questions aswell then you could get an A* but the past exam questions are the most important part

From my experience with STEM subjects, revision guides are excellent for gcses, not so much for A-levels with higher levels of critical thinking involved. Past questions and a lot of practice is what you'd want.
