5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic help for kids of all abilities 21 May 2005
If you haven't got this book and your child is sitting their GCSE Physics, then I highly recomend this book. It's style is witty (if sometimes childish) and it makes the learning of some difficult topics very simple. Compared to the older text books with their reams of text, this book forms a welcome relief. It summarises the facts, and has revision sections in the form of questions and answers.
I've used this book to teach physics, and it works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars CGP Physics GCSE Revision Guide 5 Nov 2001
After using the CGP Physics GCSE Revision Guide, along with other CGP Revision guids for other subjects, I am feeling much more confident of success in my ever-nearing GCSE examinations. They provide every piece of useful information to cover a wide variety of syllabus content. The illustrations and humour add interest to the book, encouraging me, as well as other students to use it as a source for revison and class work exercises.
The book itself consists of a variety of chapters, each focusing on the elements of physics, necessary in order to pass the exam at a high standard. Each page contains detailed summaries of individual topics and sections, that are set out in an interesting, informative and eye catching manner, conveying the information in such a way as to understand it fully, without exploring and explaining difficult concepts and terminology, so as to make revising for GCSE's a whole lot easier, putting it's user in an ideal A* oppurtunity.
I would definately recommend this book, and indeed any other of the CGP revision guide range, to anybody who is taking GCSE's, whether they find the subject difficult or easy. The guide is an absoloutly vital ingredient, and will work wonders. I am shocked that the schools don't issue them to students as standard curricular materials.

After using CGP's Physics revision book and for other subjects as well, I can't say that they've made a lot of difference to my grade.
The Physics book does contain a lot of information - enough to get you an A*. However, sometimes you get the feeling that they've given you too much information. For the Double Award, you don't need to go into too much depth for each topic. On top of this is the fact that it usually takes over half a page to make a simple point. It's all written in the style that people have weeks to revise Physics and not nine other GCSEs to prepare for. I found it impossible to use for last-minute revision.
The book is reasonably well presented. Each page relates to an individual topic, and there's plenty of sub-headings to divide it up. The cheerful illustrations help you to relate each bit of theory to a real-life situation, although some are more confusing than helpful. At the bottom of each page is a box containing important points or revision tips. However, more-often-than-not, this ends up being patronising or repeating the same point time-and-time-again (the only tip they seem to be able to give is to write mini-essays). A major problem is that each page looks the same. Little imagination has been put into each one. Going through page-after-page presented in the same monotonous way is frankly depressing.
At the end of each chapter are questions which are useful to find the gaps in your revision. There is some good advise too, like a page on formulae and formulae triangles. One thing I found annoying was the fact that, apart from a few hastily done page references at the beginning, it's difficult to know which pages relate to which syllabus. It's easy to revise something which you don't have to - a complete waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Is Fantastic!!! 16 July 2005
By Hero Miles - Published on

This book combines the BASICS of EVERYTHING involved in physics.

If you want to learn physics in a very simplistic easy to read fashion, this is the book for you. It combines a wealth of information in addition to picture diagrams that makes physics fun to learn into less than one hundred pages. This book includes all of the major formulas involved with physics and combines them into a chart called the Physics Alphabet. This book's design will help you to master each section with ease and you'll feel like a genius once you've mastered the sections. I can almost guarantee that you will NOT be disappointed. Section One covers Electricity and Magnetism including Current, Voltage, Resistance, Test Circuits, Circuit Symbols, Series/Parallel Circuits, Static Electricity, Magnetic Fields, Motors, Transformers, Induction and much more. Section Two Forces and the Laws of Motion including Gravity, Force, Friction, Speed, Velocity, and Acceleration, Distance-Time-Velocity Graphs, Hooke's Law and Boyle's Law. Waves: Soundwaves, Microwaves, Seismic Waves, Reflection, Refraction, Ultrasound, Internal Reflection, Diffraction, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Infrared, Visible and UV Light, X-Rays and Y-Rays, Earth's Structure, Plate Tectonics and Boundaries. Section Four covers outer space: The planets, moons, meteorites, asteroids and comets, satellites, The Universe, The Life Cycle of Stars, The Origin and Future of the Universe. Section Five covers Energy: Energy Transfer, Conservation of Energy, Machine Efficiency, Work, Energy, and Power, Kinetic and Potential Energy, Heat Transfer, Conduction and Convection, Heat Radiation, Energy Resources, Power Stations, Wind Power and Hydroelectric Power, Wave and Tidal Power, Geothermal, Wood Burning, and Solar Energy. The last Section, Section Six covers Radioactivity: Atomic Structure and Isotopes, The Three Types of Radiation, Radioactive Materials, Detection of Radiation, Radiation Hazards and Safety, Nuclear Equations, and Half Life. At the end of each section is a revision summary with questions that help test your mastery of the section. When it comes to learning GCSE books may be the STANDARD.
