This set of four 50-minute test papers comes in a card folder with Velcro closure. It includes a separate, machine-readable-style answer booklet, which is helpful for your child to practice switching accurately back and forth between question paper and answer paper. The separate answer booklet is helpful for speedy marking; it also includes a brief explanation of the right answer for each question, which may help a child (or adult!) to realise where the child has gone wrong. Finally, the folder includes some stiffening cardboard and a sheet of pink paper, whose purposes is unclear to me (possibly for the child to use for rough working, or to slide down each question page in order to mask future questions). This is a nicely presented and useful set of test papers. The questions seem to me to be quite typical of the sort of questions that are asked in 11+ exams. Personally, I think the title of "verbal reasoning" is a little misleading, since the sections on basic arithmetic, pattern-matching and code-breaking have nothing much to do with verbal comprehension, but the publisher is just following the precedent set by others here, so it's not their fault! If I had one small criticism, it's that there are not four separate answer sheets, which would also allow siblings to sit different practice papers in parallel. There is, however, a statement that "photocopying more than 5% of this product is not permitted", from which I infer that permission is granted to photocopy a few pages from the answer book (although this could helpfully be made more explicit). This overcomes this problem, and also enables a child to sit the same test paper more than once. Great!

Excellent test practice papers to challenge children's skills and help them prepare for their 11+ test. Everything is well laid out and presented nicely to really give children a feel for what they will face during the real tests. I really like the way detailed answer book is provided as I have had books in the past whose answers have had to be purchased separately.

Excellent resource for children studying towards the 11 plus. Recommended.

I am a teaching assistant in a primary school and have a child in year three. I have taken a number of these books to review so sorry if all the reviews are very similar as I am copying and pasting big chunks where relevant. Remember never write in the papers! photocopy and reuse is the name of the game (or scan/print) especially if you have more that one child! This is 4 full tests. Great if you have used the practice books and better if you have both practised and studies with the study books. Answers included. This is format is multiple choice so not quite like the real thing...helps to avoid too much pressure while at the same time still teaching...

If you've read any of my other reviews of CGP, you'll know that I'm a fan of the range and that I'm helping a young friend with his CEM preparation - I'm using this pack as additional work with him, as these are not CEM style or level tests.. This pack is made up purely of test papers, so whilst it'll help children learn whilst they're doing the tests and then the answers are checked, it's not strictly a learning tool, as examples are not given. If it's the latter you're after, then this is not the book for you, though it will be invaluable later. This is apparently Test Pack 2, containing tests numbered 5-8, with sheets on which the questions can be answered, and with an answer booklet that gives answers with explanations of how these have been reached. This is great for parents who might not have otherwise been able to help their kids, and additionally, it guides parents about preparation, taking the tests and marking, Each test contains 80 multiple choice questions that need to be answered in 50 minutes - this is tough going for event an adult, let alone a child, so it is important not to let your child get disheartened if he/she doesn't finish on time or doesn't get the answers right. Overall, it's a great tool for practising, preparing and passing the 11+, or if you simply want your child to be challenged.

This set consists of 4 individual timed papers. Unlike the NVR, this consists of 80 questions to be completed in 50 minutes with no time guidance for various sections. The papers consist of a real mix of VR topics, from grammar to straight maths questions. They are multiple choice and come with an answer sheet book with the multiple choices for each question. These papers are much more realistic and harder than the Bond equivalent so give a very much harsher exam paper which is no bad thing. I sat with my wife last night and we went through a whole paper. We are both GPs and found a lot of the questions very challenging (some we had to peak at the answers!). The answer book, as with all the CGP books provides detailed explanations for each question - very helpful to guide and assist your child. This pack comes sealed with a Velcro button holding in the folder creating a formal looking setup and making it very easy to organise the papers. We love this series and would really recommend for 11+ prep and beyond ** Amendment - just to say that these papers are not comprehensive. They do not include much cloze or comprehension questions which are the areas that my son struggles with. Just thought I would mention it.

The cardboard folder comes with a strong Velcro fastener to keep loose papers in place. There are 4 Verbal reasoning papers in the pack and luckily multiple choice answer sheets for each test. An added bonus is an answer book that provides a full explanation of each answer which really helps with revision and repeat testing. A great product.

Very handy set of practice test papers preparing children for the 11+ exams. Handy answer booklet in the back as well.

Just like all CGP Books this Verbal Reasoning Practice Test Papers study book is outstanding value. With four 50-minute test papers that arrived in a folder with Velcro closure. The questions are good and clear, good type face used too. There is also a separate booklet with the answers. What I like too is the simple outline of the correct answer which makes learning easier. Over all I am very impressed.
