  • This is a great guide! It is well written and easy to follow. It tells you what you should do on the very first day of revision right up until the day before the exam. I recommend anyone that's taking their GCSE maths to get their hands on this valuable guide! It showed me exactly where I was going wrong. I was one of those students who was making this 'silly mistake' repeatedly, and not knowing that I was making it. No wonder I failed my GCSE maths first time... Once I addressed this mistake, I scored 90% in my GCSE maths exam... ■■■
