Reviews

Who better to provide practice questions than the people who set most of the 11+ papers? Of course, you always need to check the format of the papers in your area, but these will provide excellent practice. Giving your child essential skills and strategies for success in Non-Verbal Reasoning. This book provides step-by-step guidance on how to tackle every question type successfully, supported by practice questions, advice on test technique, tips and fun activities. I really like the fun activities, which help your child develop essential skills without it seeming a chore. All the explanations are clear and easy to follow, breaking down the questions into manageable parts. A comprehensive guide which goes far beyond merely a collection of practice papers.
