The Schofield & Sims Verbal Reasoning Rapid Tests are short, timed tests designed to build speed and fluency in preparation for the 11+ and other school selection tests. Written by an experienced tutor, the tests cover a wide range of topics, ensuring that children have the skills and knowledge to succeed in any of the major providers' tests - including CEM and GL. Each book contains 36 single-page tests on topics including letter and word problems; vocabulary; spelling; number patterns; and problem-solving. The target times for the tests range from 10 to 15 minutes, making them ideal for regular independent work sessions. Aimed at children aged 8 to 9 years, Verbal Reasoning Rapid Tests Book 3 features a `Progress chart' for recording scores and tracking improvement, and a separate pull-out answer booklet with explanations and `Action notes' for all tests. A selection of free downloads, including verbal reasoning puzzles, is also available from the Schofield & Sims website.
