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!

I bought this for my 16 year old daughter who has the spectre of GCSE's looming this year, This book will I hope help her achieve a good pass rate.
Basically a topic is taken, and summarised, in to sections with bullet points and short paragrahs, giving all the important points in a few short paragraphs. Of course, the proof of the pudding will be in August when the results are released, but this book was recommended by her history teacher, so I assume they have proved their value!
.... AUGUST! Results day arrived, and the daughter, gained a B! Well worth it!

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.

This guide is great. Others have said that it does not go into enough detail. Revision guides are not meant to, they are all designed to be used with our exercise books. This has more than enough in, and, if you need more detail, simply use the big textbook that everyone on this course has. It also has loads and loads of tips and activities in.

It is much better than any other revision guide I have ever used, I thoroughly recommend.

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.

Amazing book for GCSE history. Teaches me everything that is in the specification and with all the relevant detail, other siblings and family members have tried this book and results for History are always A A* with thanks to this book! Results will definitely show after revising from this book!

This book is very informative and interesting. Our son is currently in Year 10 and this book was recommended by his teacher. It is the book they are using during lessons. The structure and variety of sources makes it very interesting, even if you are not a GCSE student!!

This was good for revision for paper 1 this year, it helped me a lot. I revised from this book for my paper 2 exam. It only has 12 pages in chapter 13 (which is the unit that my paper 2 was based on). I made sure that I rembered every detail on these pages. However, my exam was about Mods and Rockers which was not even mentioned in this revision guide. Mods and Rockers were talked about in the full Ben Walsh book but didn't come up once in this revision guide. Therefore I went into the exam with no contextual knowledge for the exam. Very disappointing. I am not sure how he could omit so many details from this revision guide.
