it might also be worth asking in the relevant area section too.

Also try the search facility , there may be existing discussions. I find it quite useful sometimes.

Or post or perhaps this question will be moved in the 11+ exams section/ B'ham section.

If you take a look at the exam 'sticky' in the Birmingham / Walsall section, you'll see that the exam style is very different from traditional Nfer.

VR: for CEM usually means synonyms. Free-rice's website is a good resource as well as the vr cd on this site.

NVR: tests rotation; spatial awareness. Can use Nfer papers for practise.

Maths: usually 2 sections: quick mental types with algebra and long data, problem solving types. Can use Nfer papers as part of the preparation.

English section tests comprehension through multiple choice questions, cloze tests and sometimes proof reading extracts.

Cem tests change each year and there aren't any past papers, although misleading sample questions are provided when you register your dc. They're misleading because the questions do not reflect the level of difficulty given in the real exam. :P
