CGP Maths Buster- a superb new learning and revision resource for GCSE maths
CGP are well-known for their excellent GCSE revision guides. Now they’ve taken their offering to a whole new level with GCSE Maths Buster. The £6 DVD ROM for PC & Mac is a comprehensive, interactive revision tool for GCSE maths students featuring:
Levelled practice– work your way through the entire maths curriculum ‘levelling up’ to unlock new content to study.
Timed tests– Take an on-screen timed test to identify your strengths and weaknesses. The software then suggests a revision plan tailored to your needs.
Practice questions– 55,000 exam-style practice questions. For each one view a worked example or see the notes from the CGP revision guide relevant to the topic.
Video tutorials– Watch video lessons for each topic.
Keep track of your progress– The software records your progress in each topic and provides an overview at any time.
Challenges– As you work through Maths Buster you unlock challenges such as ‘sudden fail’, ‘time trial’ and ‘against the clock’.
Practice papers– Print off practice papers. Complete answers and step-by-step video solutions are provided.
I’ve had a play with the software myself and am impressed with it. There are lots of revision offerings out there these days, but what I particularly like about Maths Buster is that it is comprehensive- it provides for all stages in the learning journey from video lessons, through practice questions and then onto exam preparation. The ‘smart’ side to the software that records individual students’ progress and then tailors its recommended lessons to their individual needs is very useful too.
