October 2011 - I have just started using these papers on a regular basis with my pupils - both those in my class and my private pupils an already I am finding them very useful. Each book contains 20 daily tests which can be administered in a mulitple choice format; giving a short, sharp introduction to many of the different technique types and proving to be a great warm up to start the day's work. As more and more areas are introducing the multiple choice format to their 11+ exams (makes marking easier!), it is vital that children become familiar with this format and thes dhort tests help greatly with this.
Well worth the money! 10 minutes a day with these exercises means short bursts of much more varied practise than the Bond books currently provide, and the papers are well organised to increase in level as your child progresses through the books.
January 2012 - If you live in the Southend/Essex area and have started to panic about the new dates for the 11+, add this to your basket to begin around Easter! If you are the parent of one of my pupils, I will be sending you to get this around then! LOL!
