Revlon Addictive Curls and Waves curling tong
Revlon Addictive Curls and Waves curling tong
Price: £18.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for creating curls, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the price this is a good buy if you're after a curling tong with variable temperature. It heats up quickly, is easy to use and has a ceramic barrel. Just using the tong for a few seconds creates a curl, brushing the curl gives you a wavy look. The barrel is quite thin, so if you have short or mid length hair, your curl is going to be quite tight. I used it on the bottom half of my mid length hair to create waves.


KS3 Biology Workbook (with online edition) - Foundation
KS3 Biology Workbook (with online edition) - Foundation
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book of practice questions, but you have to purchase answers separately, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is aimed at children who are in Years 7-9 and who are not exceeding the age related level expected of them. That's not to say that it is a simple workbook, children might well still have to use a study guide to help them work through it. A matching study and question book for the foundation level is available to buy.

The workbook itself is black and white and is broken down into sections. There are illustrations to break up the text, essentially this is a book of Biology questions for your child to work through. A class teacher could well use these books to set homework. However there are no answers in this book, you will have to purchase those separately. For that reason I am deducting a star.

However for people using the book at home, that means them purchasing an additional book, hence the four stars.


New GCSE English Language and Literature Workbook - for the Grade 9-1 Courses (includes Answers)
New GCSE English Language and Literature Workbook - for the Grade 9-1 Courses (includes Answers)
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for any child studying GCSE English Language and Literature, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This workbook is excellent. It is set out clearly, with three sections on English Language, two sections on English Literature and the last section on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. These sections are further broken down into sub-sections. Answers can be found at the end of the book.
You don't write in the book as there is not enough space. The questions are well thought out, and the pieces of text are interesting to read. This book will definitely help your child at home improve their English skills. I can also see schools using these books to set work. A matching Revision Guide is also available that will support children with their understanding of the features and techniques. At the bottom of each section pupils can self assess on how they found that topic. This is useful for going back and highlighting trickier parts of the curriculum.


New GCSE English Language and Literature Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Courses
New GCSE English Language and Literature Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Courses
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A good revision guide, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This revision guide is for all syllabuses, it does not say say that this book is for any one specific exam board. Combining the two different English GCSE courses (English Language and English Literature) material into one revision guide is useful. The book is split into sections, the first few covering English Language, the rest cover English Literature, leaving one section on Spelling, Punctuation& Grammar and also one section on the spoken language element of the exam. It's quite general material as there is no specific text. You can buy separate study guides for texts that your child will study. It's colourful and appealing to the eye but as with some other CGP books, there is far too much underlining. So for example in one sentence the words 'don't', 'plot', 'action' and 'describing' are coloured green AND are underlined. I personally think it's overkill and detracts from allowing the reader to focus on what they're reading. It's a helpful guide, and will definitely benefit children who need some extra support with revising for the exam, or need to consolidate their school work.


Mathematics for KS3: 10-Minute Tests - Book 2 (including Answers)
Mathematics for KS3: 10-Minute Tests - Book 2 (including Answers)
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book of short tests, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great book of ten minute tests for children in years 7-9 in secondary school. The answers are included and it is well set out. This is book 2, so offers questions for children who are achieving expected progress, there is a simpler book 1 available and a book 3 for more challenging tests. A very bright year seven or average year eight child should be able to cope with these tests. They are useful in reinforcing school work and also in identifying weaknesses. The CGP study books for key stage three maths that you can also purchase are excellent, if your child needs further support. I find them invaluable in consolidating or revisiting concepts and methods that they have not completely grasped or mastered.


KS2 Maths SAT Buster 10-Minute Tests: Maths - Book 2 (for the New Curriculum)
KS2 Maths SAT Buster 10-Minute Tests: Maths - Book 2 (for the New Curriculum)
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is book 2 of ten minute bite-sized maths tests. Great for ensuring that children can do quick bursts of maths without getting bored or despondent. The answers are included in a cut out and keep section at the back of the book. I really like the way that the book is set out, and it clearly shows how many marks are available for each answer. This book would be great for home revision, or for schools to buy for their year five or years six children.


KS3 Maths Test Practice Workbook - Higher
KS3 Maths Test Practice Workbook - Higher
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book of practice questions for higher maths sets but answers NOT included, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is aimed at pupils who will be in the higher maths sets in secondary school from years 7-9. It is a test book, with questions. You can use it to test knowledge, not to teach. For that you would need to buy the corresponding Mathematics Study Guide Higher Level.
Questions are organised by topic, and there are two mixed test papers at the back of the book to test all knowledge once you've completed the practice questions. My daughter has found it useful to revise for school tests and assessments.

I've deducted a star because as with many other CGP books, there are no answers included. You need to purchase the answer booklet separately. I'm thinking that as more and more schools start using CGP books in school, they want to provide pupil books free of answers and then an answer booklet for the teacher. However anyone using a book at home needs answers!


KS2 Maths Targeted Question Book - Year 6+, Challenging Maths for Year 6 Pupils
KS2 Maths Targeted Question Book - Year 6+, Challenging Maths for Year 6 Pupils
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Be warned this is a question book, not a study book for children who are exceeding in year six maths, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is aimed at those children that will be aiming to exceed or achieve 'mastery' in their SATs maths at the end of Year Six. This book is a question book, not a study book. Therefore the child should already have achieved the learning objectives for the Year Six curriculum content. Very usefully the book starts with a regular Year Six questions. If your child archieves highly on this then they are probably ready to tackle the book. If they get a low score then maybe this challenging book will be too tricky for them. Or alternatively you can purchase the study book for year six maths, work on that and then buy the study book for year Six plus.
Each section has learning objectives at the bottom of each page for the pupil to tick and self assess on how they found it. At the end of the book is a test with challenging year six questions which hopefully your child will feel confident tackling. There are answers at the back of the book but they are not removable as they are on the back of the final test!

KS2 English Targeted Question Book: Punctuation - Year 6 (for the New Curriculum)
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book, answers would be nice though!, 11 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good book for pupils to reinforce what they have learnt at school, or alternatively to be used in the classroom. I deduct a star because there are no answers included. You can purchase them separately in one book which also includes answers to the spelling and comprehension books. I assume this series are aimed at schools. A teacher won't want answers in his/her pupils books, but will need one copy to mark work. However for parents an answer sheet would have been helpful.
It's well set out with all the right areas covered. I would recommend it as a good buy.
