Book Description

30 Jun 2013 1908684305 978-1908684301
Numerical Reasoning tests are becoming increasingly common in CEM 11+ and common entrance exams. Numerical reasoning questions are typically worded problems requiring comprehension and mathematical manipulation of facts and figures presented. They are designed to measure the ability to interpret, analyse and sometimes draw conclusions from tables and graphs. These problems are often multi-part, requiring several conclusions to be drawn or evaluated from the same initial information, with answers occasionally being contingent on a preceding part answered accurately. Although some mathematical ability is required, the primary element being measured is the ability to reason with the facts. This series of mini-tests is representative of the numerical reasoning section of contemporary multi-discipline 11 plus exams that typically have two papers covering several subjects such as verbal and non-verbal reasoning, comprehensions and numerical reasoning. Numerical reasoning papers usually have a long multi-part worded numerical reasoning problems section and another containing more conventional short, quick-fire maths questions. This publication addresses the former with questions packaged as mini-tests. They are suitable practice for independent schools and new CEM-style 11 plus exams. Extensively road-tested by ElevenPlusExams, these tests are best used as real exam practice to benchmark your child s performance. The on-line service helps identify areas for improvement and, crucially, gauge peer comparison anonymously. They are perfect for use both in the classroom and at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found it very beneficial 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
There isn't much by way of numerical reasoning material on the market and this book provides very valuable needed practice especially for independent schools tests that tend to have these types as well as 11+ CEM exams. The book contains 10 mini tests each containing a question that has multiple parts to it requiring knowledge of different maths topics such as ratios, percentages, fractions, conversions. . The child is presented with a pie chart, graph, timetable or other data and then has to interpret and analyse the data & extrapolate in order to answer the different question parts. With these mutli-level type questions the answer to some questions can be dependent on the answer to another question, so accuracy is really important with this types as one silly error can result in loss of marks for the whole section. This is why lots of practice of this type is needed.

I think most children will initially find these challenging no matter how good their maths is because they would not have had much practice of these styles using other 11+ maths papers.
I would highly recommend this book for any one that needs to do numerical reasoning for the 11+.

I'm glad to see that a Numerical Reasoning Book 2 has come out so will definitely be buying that.

It is an excellent buy. I was really confused what numerical reasoning really meant and the difference between numeracy as a subject. This book gives a proper insight. I would recommend it to any child doing 11+ exams.

5.0 out of 5 stars This has 10 test. Each test has further 5 ... 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase
This has 10 test . Each test has further 5 main questions divided in 5 sections.
So you get 25 questions per test.
The questions have long wording , so it is advisable to use them in your child is taking the CEM test.

The questions are different to other books out in the market for 11 plus.

I had hoped the questions would have been more challenging, my son seemed to whizz through them without much effort. These papers are probably suited near the beginning of your CEM prep to give your child work under timed conditions.
