Format: Paperback
There are four very good tests enclosed in this pack. It's very good that they are all extracts from classics ("The Count of Monte Cristo", "White Fang", "Around the world in 80 days", "20,000 leagues under the sea") and it is very good that they appear to raise the bar in terms of complexity in relation to a lot of other publishers' papers. However, I would start somewhere else (like Bond, where children can progress from accessible to more difficult) and stay there for a while building their confidence, then move on to these as a way of extending a child's practice out of their comfort zone when they are already very good or even proficient.

We found some inconsistencies in this set though. We found, as mentioned, higher than usual difficulty where the reading comprehension aspects of the tests are concerned: my daughter (aged 9, soon 10) felt very disheartened with the understanding of the content both due to the great number of unknown words she found as well as the more convoluted, long-winded and elaborate construction of the sentences typical of 19th century, or turn of the century, works. It helps if children are familiar with the backstory. But how many 9 year olds know about Edmond Dantes today? Still, she excelled where grammar, spellings and punctuation where concerned, she found them easy, or even easier than in some other books she's done before. So, first part taxing, second part... a doddle.

I'm sure we will be buying the other sets from First Past the Post, as overall they are very good and they also provide a code for you to check online how other people fared with these tests and compare your child's results against them. However, considering this set is only Pack 1 and it sets a very high and challenging standard, be careful not to throw this at a child that is still in the early stages of 11+ practice.

Firstly: this is a great concept. I love the idea of using classic literature for comprehension papers. I've also got the Maths papers and I like the layout - they're clear and easy to use.

Sadly, I've found so many errors in these papers - really silly things like incorrect titles ("The Grey Club" on an extract from "White Fang" about the grey cub), errors on the answer sheets etc. I just find this lack of accuracy really irritating. Luckily, I have been going through these papers with my neighbour's son in preparation for his grammar school entry, but if he'd been left to do them by himself, he wouldn't have a clue that the answer sheet might be wrong. There are also errors on the Maths answer sheets.

This brand could have been a stand-out product - shame nobody thought to proofread for errors first.

These papers really helped my tutees. A digitised CD would be great so I hope the authors may wish to explore that avenue. Interesting choice of text extracts: 'White Fang' and 'Around the world in eighty days' proved particularly popular with children who had seen films / DVDs of these two works.

By LWL on 5 July 2014
Format: Paperback
Good book to practise English with. The layout and print were clear and the instructions were clear to follow. There are 4 tests, with separate answer booklets and explanations. After you have done the test, you can register (for free) and compare your child's performance with other who have done the test. Good prep for 11+ and KS2. My duaghter enjoyed the stories and vocab tests: the stories were extracts from classical reads, so a good challenge for kids that age.
