5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to a lovable qualification. 9 Mar 2014
By karen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The product is a perfect, comprehensive and generally efficient method of acquiring the information required for the GCSE. Usually, the CGP company is an excellent brand as the generally bland and unnecessarily flowered data is condensed into something more easily accessible by GCSE students. This trend however has been broken through simply going too far - the CGP version of GCSE History - a guide I purchased previously - contains the bare minimum for a literal and extremely simplistic grasp of the subject. This guide however seems to contrast CGP in this area, in the sense of its ability to express the material in an interesting and perfectly articulated manner yet retaining the simplicity of writing that revision simply demands.

In consideration of this, the guide is a perfect book for any student of history, with more than enough sophistication and general attractiveness to allow achievement of an A*. Though reputation is commonly an effective means of decision making, in this case, the Ben Walsh guide has out shined the largely popular CGP counterpart in almost every aspect - only a few of which I have named here. Remember, reputation isn't everything, and this situation is a perfect example. What? You're still reading this stupid old review? Go out there are buy it! Go on!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good revision guide 22 May 2014
By JED
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book, reasonably well laid out with a good selection of revision activities. More depth would be helpful in some Cold War areas though. This and the occasionally cluttered layout are the only letdowns.

2.0 out of 5 stars KEY FACTS WRONG! 8 Jun 2012
By Meg0207
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because I already owned a Ben Walsh textbook which I found extremely useful for the international relationships side of the GCSE course. At first glance this revision guide looked promising, with lots of condensed information. However, having 2 other textbooks on the USA topic, I found that the information was conflicting. Several facts in this revision guide differ from those in the other 2 textbooks, and when I checked online the other 2 textbooks were right, NOT the revision guide.
For example, this revision guide states that the Brown v Topeka Board of Education case was in 1952 - when it was actually 1951. An obvious mistake.
Other dates / statistics were conflicting too. Not at all helpful when you're a stressed GCSE student trying to remember all the different facts, and then finding out that some are wrong.
In the end, I barely used this revision guide as I couldn't trust it's accuracy. It confused me by giving me false information.
