Verbal Reasoning 1 by Sian Goodspeed

Rapid Reasoning Tests provides short, effective, timed tests in reasoning. The series comprises six books of verbal reasoning tests and six books of non-verbal reasoning tests. Written by experienced teachers and designed for independent use, Rapid Reasoning Tests has been carefully structured to provide practice of key, standard format question types. Each collection of tests has been designed for use over one year and provides one section per term in order to support regular practice. Verbal Reasoning 1 is a collection of short, language-based problem solving tests. Each timed test includes age-appropriate questions, providing opportunities for children to practise and master verbal reasoning skills in preparation for the 11+ and other school selection tests. The first of six verbal reasoning books in the Rapid Reasoning Tests series, this book covers the following question types: word and letter patterns; vocabulary; spelling; number patterns and problem solving. Key features: short tests requiring few resources that are easy to fit into a busy timetable; a target time for each test encourages children to work quickly and develop the necessary exam skills for success in the 11+ and other tests; pull-out answers in the centre of each book can be easily removed; free downloads to support the series are available from the Schofield & Sims website.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
