Thanks

No, not normally.

If you look at the following link on the Bucks thread you will hopefully find a list of suitable resources.

Seems to be a problem with the site at the moment. I can't get the Essex pages to work. The ones that are available are taking ages to load. Lots of us on at the moment, perhaps?

Bond produce a series of books for 11+ revision, although they are not relevant to all 11+ tests as the test varies according to school or Local Authority.

What area are you in countrymum? we will be able to give you more advice if we know where your child is sitting the exam.

It would be a trafford school, though just did a quick recky on catchment and looks like we may be a mile out at 9 miles away :0( Can you tell I am new to all this :? I guess I should have already checked. Though just did a crow fly check and that says 6....

Thanks for the help

Hi, I am looking at Bucks schools. Also how do you find out the radius that the schools accepted and how do you measure from your home?

Thanks

Greg

Yes, I'm wondering now which areas they are relevant for too. I used them for ds1 ( We're in Kent ) and found them to be clear,helpful and each little test just the right length....maybe it's the vr and nvr which don't have the specific types or have too many ?

However the maths and english must be suitable for all areas ? and if not, good for all round improvement ! :)
I've just bought the 10 minute test ones for ds2...although I've only given him his lego sticker book at the moment...waiting for the right time for the big reveal !!
