Understanding Reasoning: Verbal Reasoning by Sian Goodspeed


Understanding Reasoning: Verbal Reasoning by Sian Goodspeed

The Understanding Reasoning series helps pupils to understand and answer correctly reasoning questions, as found in the 11+, 12+, 13+ and other school selection tests. The books provide concise explanations and examples of all the question types occurring in the 11+ together with practical workbook-style activities to consolidate learning. The step-by-step explanations are clear and include 'how to' instructions. Intensive practice enables pupils to gain confidence as they tackle each new question type. Correct answers are provided at the back of each book for quick and easy marking. Verbal reasoning activities use letters and words to explore pupils' understanding of language and meaning. Using methods that are quite distinct from traditional literacy activities, pupils' verbal skills are stretched to the full. Question types covered include the following: alphabet and word patterns, vocabulary, spelling, mathematical questions and problem solving.
