I guess you mean to say "word problems". It just require doing a variety of them and knowing what each keyword means - that's it. There are some teachers on the forum who might have better ideas.

You might want to give this a try -

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

Has lot's of wordy and abstract question types that require problem-solving (i.e. lateral thinking, applying math skills to solve problems)

Go on to the NRICH website and look at stage 2 puzzles. Rich tasks in maths. If you have an iPad, then thinking blocks is a lovely free app for word problems.
