I have been looking at these English books in the shop (and on Amazon) and I'm confused as there seems to be reference to GL having taken over some books but the content is the same. Which books are different though!?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practice-Papers ... 551&sr=1-4

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practice-Papers ... 551&sr=1-6

These are both by GL, but are they different?

First link 0708719848 Is GL and is identical to 0708703895 (now out of print)
Second link 1844192512 Is not a GL publication

It is all fairly well laid out in the bookshop. http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/list.php?g=f&c=3

Sorry, I must have put the wrong link. This is Letts but says GL Assessment on the front?

Right, sorry-I was rather confused. The old Letts one (with the girafffe) has been reprinted by GL and the new Letts (my second link) is Letts but not GL! All very odd-were Letts taken over just briefly?!

If it has Nfer or GL on the cover then it is identical to your first link.

Don't start on the Giraffes we're talking about the fishes! :shock:

First, Letts were the distributor for the Nfer papers (with the fishes, giraffes on the cover). Then, GL Assessment buys out Nfer and takes over the distribution, incorporating a new cover on the old papers. Finally, Letts publish their own papers but continue to use the fishes, giraffes etc. on the cover.

It is very complicated. :?

But it is good news, because it means there is now twice as much material to work with. DG

Right, just so I can get this clear in my head...!

If I get this one (GL pack 1)
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... 3D0%23b403

and this one (GL pack 2)
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... 3D0%23b447

and this one (Letts all new)
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... 3D0%23b427

they will all be different?

BUT this one is the same as one of the first two?
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... p%3D0%23b1

Thank you so much! I wish the Letts people had chosen new packaging when releasing their own papers!

Argh-I've just seen that I've already got this one, somehow!

http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... 3861%23b14

Is this the same as pack A of the GL ones?

Yes. Pack 1 of GL MC VR

http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/books/ ... p?g=f&p=30
NOTE:Formerly 0708703860 & 9780708703861 These papers replace the GL Assessment(a.k.a Nfer)-Letts papers, the papers are exactly the same in content, only the cover is different.

Fabulous, thank you! I can buy pack 2 of the GL m/c VR and then the Letts new papers and shouldn't get any duplicates!

I think I need to buy a photocopier to copy the m/c answer sheets so I can reuse all these papers on my younger children!!
