I'm new to the 11plus forum. My daughter's in Year 5 currently and we've started practicing. Just wanted to see if we need to purchase the maths books as well as the GL VR books? Or are we purely dealing with the 21 question types? Thanks in advnce for any help/advice.

Yes we're only on vocab and division tables. No question for a long time yet.

No Maths books are necessary.

There are 21 types of question set by GL Assessment for the 11 Plus in Gloucestershire.

01 – Insert a letter
02 – Related words
03 – Word-Letter Codes
04 – Closest Meaning
05 – Hidden Word
06 – Missing Word
07 – Letters for Numbers
08 – Move a Letter
09 – Letter Series
10 – Word Connections
11 – Number Series
12 – Compound Words
13 – Make a Word
14 – Letter Connections
15 – Reading Information
16 – Opposite Meaning
17 – Complete the Sum
18– Related Numbers
19 – Word-Number Codes
20 - Complete the Word
21 – Same Meaning

As you can see numbers don't appear too often and when they do there aren't always calculations to do. The relevant methodology re the types needs to be in place and practised rather than purchasing any maths books. Quick mental maths (basic multiplication, division, addition and subtraction) and solid times table knowledge also need to be the focus.
