Excellent guide to a lovable qualification.
on 9 March 2014
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 outshined 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!
