Anyone doing the late entry test for Chesham (year 8 or 9 entry into Sept 2013)?

I have received the familiarisation questions from CGS which is numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning (not the same as the 11+ VR) and non-verbal skills.

What can I use to prepare my child for the CGS testing as the test will be next month and not enough time to prepare.

The test CGS is using for the 12+ is the same one that Bucks are intending to use for the 11+ next year.

Patricia has just posted a new Sticky about which materials you might want to use for preparation.

so much info on the CEM preparation, but when you have only less than a month to prepare your DC, where do you start from?
