It's not a teaching aid, it doesn't tell the student how to do the maths problems, but it does give really good tips about the whole examination process.
Lots of practice questions and papers, and the answers are at the back of the book. Well set out, easy to follow - it doesn't make maths fun, but it helps with preparation for exams.
There are answers also at the back of this book as well as two practice exams with on-line video solutions.
Remember this GCSE Mathematics is the higher level and the Exam Board is Edxcel
I like the puzzle book feel of it and the checklist at the front so you can see what you need to brush up. I'm hoping the new GCSE version will be as useful.
Overall we have found this book to be a great confidence booster and I think that it would be of benefit to anyone approaching GCSE maths, regardless of exam board.
The questions are well paced and presented, and it's quite possible for a well-motivated student to work through the book at her own pace, using the hints and answers to guide to the correct procedures. ANd for the not-so-well-motivated, then a parent or reasonable savvy adult can use this with her to encourage the habits of success.
The DVD is whizzy too! And as with all CGP guides, the appearance is friendly and sort-of funky, using a register that addresses the teenager. It worked for mine!
- Geometry and Measures
- Pythagoras and Trigonometry
- Statistics and Probability
2 practice papers at the end. Solutions are given. A code is provided to get the equivalent online book on your device (PC or tablet) with access to videos (I did not use as to not "waste" the code for the final receipient)
I have a sneaking suspicion that the questions are pretty easy to those who are well prepared. It is a good confidence builder.
Good luck to the candidate.
Answers for these are given.
In addition there are also two practice papers to be worked through. The answers for these are not given but are accessible online via a unique key, which also accesses a full online edition of the book for use on PC or tablet. The answers are worked through in videos online. This is a really useful teaching method, but it's a shame that these couldn't have been put on to a DVD. This would have pushed up the purchase price however and the book is really affordable.
The online access key can only be used by one person which slightly restricts the book's usefulness if you have children fairly near to each other in age, but again buying another copy won't break the bank.
The Edexcel syllabus does not differ greatly from others and this would be useful practice for anyone studying with other UK examination boards.
The CGP guides are really very good at that part. They are graphically well presented, contain tick-boxes to help a student keep track of sections covered and provide ample questions to help reinforce the learning (interactive online edition in particular). The exam tips section is also well considered for the target teenage readership and these skills can easily be overlooked when revising subject material.
With maths there's no substitute for practice and with both paper and online support I'd highly recommend this guide to students and those assisting them.

This book was perfect for my son to go through and check his knowledge for his gcse revision.Published 3 months ago by M
The book was completely useless to us. It was a revision guide and therefore cannot be re-used if the questions have already been answered and written in it! Read morePublished 3 months ago by Beverly M.
