Reviews

Giving your child essential skills and strategies for success in Verbal Reasoning, this book provides step-by-step guidance on how to tackle every question type successfully. This is supported by practice questions, advice on test technique, tips and fun activities. Many schools do not teach children VR and Non VR, so these two books provide an essential resource for familiarisation. They can also be usefully used for Common Entrance preparation and as a way to develop your child's thinking and reasoning skills - many children find these types of questions challenging yet fun. The questions will really make children think and extend their ability to learn, which will benefit them in all aspects of life and learning. Parents in Touch
