Get Ready! for Standardized Tests : Grade 3 by Karen Mersky

This is the grade-specific test preparation every child needs.

Now your child is taking those same tests, but this time you have the tools you need to help improve his or her test-taking skills and scores. Get Ready! For Standardized Tests is filled with empowering information for both you and your child. This grade-specific test preparation guide demystifies and explains the test your child will take. Get Ready! For Standardized Tests enables you to understand test results and helps you work with your child in all skill areas, helping to maximize his or her potential to succeed. Developed by educational professionals and McGraw-Hill, the nation's leading educational publisher, this guide is brimming with expert tips for optimizing your child's test performance to help even the most test-anxious child acquire the skills needed to excel at standardized exams. Everything parents must know to optimize their children's test performance! Only Get Ready! For Standardized Tests features: practice exercises that stimulate questions from all state-mandated tests; verbal and math skill-enhancing exercises; actual tests with answers; and, study tips tailored to a child's grade level.
