4.0 out of 5 starsGreat practical peace of writing

Very thorough and systematic, this book covers an extensive number of topics related to the subject. It is illustrated all the way with examples that ensure total clarity for understanding some of the concepts you may be less familiar with. Highly recommended.
I bought this in prep for my TSA Oxford exam. It was very useful, especially for the critical thinking part, plenty of practice questions with full explanations of how to work out the answer. I'd really recommend it.
This book is definitely useful preparation for the TSA tests: with chapters on the different "skills" necessary to do well in the test, good exercises, summaries of key terms, and answers in the back this book is easily accesible and practical.
I used this book for preparation for IMAT (international medical admission test for Universities in Italy) since there are still no official books for IMAT preparation, but big part (about 50%) of the exam is reasoning. As for every exam, although there are no official books, you can prepare for what you are gonna get, and this books provides material that is very similar (read: same principle) to BMAT/IMAT reasoning part...
I give it 4/5 since it is not so concise and still demands decent amount of time to go through... But still I highly recommend it especially for someone who did not encounter similar tasks in his/her high school...
Bought this textbook as recommended reading for the Cambridge TSA, while I haven't taken the test yet, it has been very helpful in understanding the processes behind thinking, and how to get to answers. Would recommend this to anyone also taking the TSA.
I found it very useful to different ranges of age. Initially I bought two copies to use them in planning the delivery of CIE 9694 thinking skills. I must admit that I enjoyed reading the book and it was very useful to me. Later I bought 4 copies to my students and they are also enjoying working on it.
