11+ Essentials Verbal Reasoning, Vocabulary for Cem Multiple Choice Book 1 by ElevenPlusExams

A versatile and well-developed vocabulary is a vital component of 11 plus and Common Entrance exams but is often one of the more difficult to attain. This collection of multiple choice tests, based on conventional classroom testing sessions, is representative of the verbal reasoning and creative writing type questions of multi-discipline CEM style 11 plus exams. A range of vocabulary topics and question styles identify and drill the use of synonyms, antonyms and homonyms providing the confidence to answer questions that test and explore vocabulary. Extensively road-tested by Eleven Plus Exams, all 11+ Essentials tests are best used as real exam practice to benchmark a child s performance and to identify areas for improvement. They are perfect for use both in the classroom and at home. The suggested time for each paper is based on data obtained from conventional classroom testing sessions. Though preparation for CEM-style exams is meant to be difficult, the First Past the Post 11 + Essentials series introduce disciplines which emphasise logical problem-solving, practise various question types and encourage lateral thinking. Ideal preparation for CEM-style (Durham University) exams in 11 plus; Broad coverage of antonyms, synonyms and homonyms to develop broad vocabulary; Fully classroom-tested by over 5.000 kids; The most relevant and up-to-date practice tests; A range of multiple choice and more searching question styles testing knowledge and skills; Ample training for any level of 11 plus exam; Answers and question-specific explanations provide familiarisation and realistic practice ahead of the tests to build knowledge and confidence, and ensure success. The introduction of the new and fast-developing CEM and hybrid exam styles has only served to widen and grow this important niche market, yet unlike ElevenPlusExams few publishers are in a position to address it with such relavant, up-to-date and crucially classroom-tested material.
