Reviews

"Assuming no prior knowledge, this guide from GL Assessment provides you with information, guidance and advice to help you support your child through the 11+ process. GL Assessments produce the majority of 11+ papers taken in the UK, so they are ideally placed to support parents whose children are taking the test. The first part of the book explains the process and helps parents to know whether the 11+ is right for their child - always a tricky decision and one which should be taken in conjunction with the child's school. The second part helps parents to prepare their child for the 11+, with sections on preparation, techniques and much more. Usefully, the book also covers the emotional aspects of taking the test. An excellent guide which I recommend to all parents considering the 11+ for their child." Parents in Touch
