These books are a great help in prep for the 11 Coupled with the main books addressing each exam non verbal, verbal, maths and english these 10 minute tests are great to use to practice There are practice papers which I do also recommend you use, but these are often only effective to do in one sitting so you can time them and therefore they can take 45 mins like the real test and that can be a little too much for many children.I really rate these books as they are clear, have good answer booklets and have proven results my eldest used these and passed last year, my next child is about to start using these now in prep One year is plenty of time 6 months is probably doable for many children, but it s easier to spread it out over a year You d be best to buy the 4 books covering each exam at the 10 11 age range, plus some practice papers for each and the 10 min test books if you work through these each week, your child will be well prepared and ready to sit the exam with some confidence.

These 10 minute test books by CGP are a storming idea as children only need to concentrate for small periods of time at any one time These can therefore be completed after school as an additional activity without much loss of focus, tedium or boredom.This new range of 10 minute test books are produced in a compact form and the books are smaller than A4 size There is an online code on the flyleaf which can only be used once to access this edition on a PC, Mac or tablet.GL are used in around half the selective secondary schools and local authorities in England and N Ireland.There are 30 tests in total that are useful to get the brain buzzing and in gear This particular book is designed to test the pupil on English skills including spelling, punctuation and grammar In addition to the tests, there is a pull out, explanatory answer booklet for parents at the back. This book contains 30 10 minute tests, each one covering one of the three topic areas spelling, punctuation and grammar The answers are given in a detachable booklet, and the amount of explanation for each varies according to need These explanations will help you and your child to identify areas for improvement the terms used in the explanations, e.g modal verbs, will point to the topics needing consolidation.As in other CGP series, the tests are interspersed with some fun but relevant puzzle sections.Your child should be well on the way if with help from you they can work through this book successfully. This is a really good book to help kids practice their Stage 3 Maths Catch up in the sense of improving and going over previously learned maths Most of my family are rubbish at maths and even the younger family members struggle we are into the arts These books are perfect for working through tricky areas Well designed and laid out The graphics are good and clear Helps build number skills Plenty of room to give answers Thirty six separate exercises Answers at the back This is workbook one of five Great for practice and refining skills Easy to follow. I love these books the fact that they have 10 minutes written all over the front mean it s easier to persuade reluctant kids to do a bit of extra work.This book gives a really thorough workout of spelling, punctuation and grammar by having a number of tests dedicated to each specific skill There are also some puzzles included which assist learners in applying the skills.A great little resource.
