Hello everyone, i am glad that there is a lovely community here whose's mission is to assist one another. We are sitting the 11plus exams this year and we leave in kent. Is there any advise regarding the best practice resources to use? Bond or CGP etc.I am aware of the changes in kent as well.

Any info will be appreciated. Many Thanks

The First Past the Post papers sold in the shop on this forum next day delivery are very good. Also I would recommend the Peter Robson series for revision also sold here. A good easy set to start with are the Alpha series. DG

Hi
I am also in Kent. Personally we have been working through the various bond books including the 10 minute tests & stretch ones. We have started using CGP and are on our first GL assessment pack. Once we are done with these I will most likely have a look at the First Past The Post ones as well. After easter I will be increasing the amount of work as up until now it has been small but frequent sessions. We are due more information on the Kent test next month so hopefully that will be of some help.

For Kent/Bex, I'll suggest the order - Bond (assessment, 10 mins ...small books), GL, Bond Test papers and CGP on some CEM specific stuff like cloze. Do 2 or 3 iterations.

You may try other publications depending on the bandwidth (and capability of the child) but I always stress about focussing on the basic concepts & consolidation rather than trying to cover most or all of the papers available in the market.

In your experience are the Bond Test papers harder than the GL assessment papers?

No. I found GL to be the most relevant for Kent but Bond Test papers (not assessment small books) just provides some good variety and completeness i.e. kind of complements the prep. I found CGP to be the easiest and private papers the hardest. If one can do private papers, the stuff like GL & Bond are walk in the park.

I have to state from the outset that my DD's did the CSSE Essex test, so can't comment from a purely Kent perspective.

However, for DD2's 11+ for an Essex superselective in September 2012, we tried Louise Staples' Maths papers which are available to download from this site:

http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/shop/s ... rch&page=1

I can't recommend them highly enough if you're looking for some brain-taxing papers. They were written before the CSSE changes, which are due to start this September, but have huge value. They are in standard format and have some multi-part questions.

Recently found this series on Amazon if you're looking for some stretch material -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/11-Super-Select ... tive+maths

Has more abstract question types. I'm looking for more of these kinds of abstract/lateral thinking questions at Level 6 or thereabouts. Please if anyone knows any good sources of this kind of material could they kindly share.

Thank you
