How helpful are revision guides such as Checkpoints, Exambusters, Neap etc. and are they essential to achieve top marks throughout the whole year? Also, which ones are the best?

I think Checkpoints are pretty useless (nor for all) because they are essentially rehashed exams VCAA exams that can be downloaded for free. I like the idea of being able to sit an exam without having seen the questions before and doing questions from Checkpoints disrupts the best chance that you have at simulating the exam experience. The other guides I'm not that familiar with although I have looked at Neap briefly and it wasn't too bad (at least they make their own questions). They are by no means a necessity but they can be useful. If I were you I'd study for a bit, enough to be confident on a topic, then have a look through one of the guides. I f their questions are actually challenging and useful, then buy one.

I never used any guides but I did many practice exams instead. It really depends on the student. I would not recommend the following companies though: TSFX, Insight (except for English) and Lisachem.
