This book is designed to give candidates practice and confidence in sitting for examinations to selective high schools or independent schools either for entry or scholarships.
All exams have a strict time limit so this book not only provides practice in answering types of questions but hopefully will increase a pupil's speed. It is essential that a person works right through each test paper until he or she has finished. After doing all the sets of papers, it is hoped that a pupil will have become faster, more accurate and more confident in answering the questions.
This book includes reading comprehension tests, mathematics tests and general aptitude tests, with answers (in a removable section in the middle of the book).
Peter Howard is an ex-primary school principal and author of many widely used textbooks and teaching aids.
