This book contains three very challenging 11+ Verbal Reasoning (VR) practice papers with each paper containing 100 questions.


It gives practice in the more difficult Verbal Reasoning questions found in many 11+ exams. These questions are in standard "write in the answer" format and are an excellent aid in preparing children for their 11+ exams. 


They offer practice questions similar to those that have been used by state grammar schools in many areas such as Kent, London, Bucks or by the SW Herts consortium.


You can also use theses tests to help prepare children for  independent and private school selection tests or for common entrance examinations in many areas of the country.


This type of Verbal Reasoning question is one that many children find difficult. It requires the child to deal with a number of pieces of information at the same time. (A grid may assist a child to put the information into a format that they can understand more easily.)


Verbal Reasoning involves the child thinking about words and text and solving problems, sequences, codes etc. (The questions are mostly language based though some questions may be number based.) It requires the child to have a good grasp of English grammar and a wide vocabulary. 


Most schools and Local Authorities administer at least one Verbal Reasoning test. 


Working through these VR practice will provide children with an experience of formal testing while at the same time helping them to become more at ease with more challenging Verbal Reasoning questions. Using these practice papers tests will increase the ability of any child to tackle the actual 11+ exams.


A time of 50-60 minutes is recommended for each test allowing preparation time similar to the actual eleven plus exam. A child practicing these tests in the security of their home environment will be at a distinct advantage when sitting the actual 11+ exams.


The introductory advice contained in this Verbal Reasoning book encourages the involvement of parents to explain the answers to the child. Parental support is crucial to a child’s success in their schoolwork. Preparing for the 11+ exams is no different.


Detachable answers are included.
