Numerical Reasoning tests are increasingly common in 11 plus and common entrance exams. Packaged as mini-tests, this Book 2 edition in the excellent new 11+ Essentials First Past the Post series, provides further graduated and multi-part worded problems, typically requiring comprehension and mathematical skillsets, relevant to the new CEM exam styles. Questions are typically worded problems requiring comprehension and mathematical manipulation of facts and figures presented. They are designed to measure the ability to interpret, analyse and sometimes draw conclusions from tables and graphs. Problems are often multi-part, requiring several conclusions to be drawn or evaluated from the same initial information, with answers occasionally being contingent on a preceding part answered accurately. Although some mathematical ability is required, the primary element being measured is the ability to reason with the facts. This series of mini-tests is representative of the numerical reasoning section of contemporary multi-discipline 11 plus exams that typically have two papers covering several subjects such as verbal and non-verbal reasoning, comprehensions and numerical reasoning.
Numerical reasoning papers usually have a long multi-part worded numerical reasoning problems section and another containing more conventional short, quick-fire maths questions. This publication complements the Book 1 edition, with questions packaged as mini-tests. They are suitable as practice for independent schools and new, CEM-style 11 plus exams. As with all the First Past the Post editions these are the only test practice materials that provide your child with individual on-line evaluation and access to peer group comparison. These offer ideal preparation for new, CEM-style exams in 11 plus; further graduated Numerical Reasoning questions relevant to new styles; multi-part worded questions, now increasingly common; fully explained answers; a peer-compare on-line access code enclosed; complete interactive evaluation to enhance individual skills; and are suitable also for independent schools testing. Extensively road-tested by ElevenPlusExams, these tests are best used as real exam practice to benchmark your child s performance. The on-line service helps identify areas for improvement and, crucially, gauge peer comparison anonymously.
They are perfect for use both in the classroom and at home.
