My ds has nearly finished the bond NVR. He's on the 10-11+ now and I see him finishing that very soon. He's just finishing year 3, and so 11 plus is still quite a while away. Just wondering if I should go on to another book entirely.

Ps we're in Essex and from what I gather, he's not going to sit an exam in NVR anyway, but we just do it cos he really enjoys it and he seems to be very good at it!

Also for the VR he's nearly completed the 9-10, and he's been getting very high scores on those too, so do I move on to the next level of bond or try a different book at the same level.

I noticed people don't really use bond assessment papers on this forum, is it because it's a bit too easy?

Can someone please advise on what other books to get him to practice with.

Thanks.

Depends on the school you are interested in but I would use Ahthey GL, Alpha and IPS. We did not use Bond because we needed material that was closest to the exam material. DG

Thanks. I guess I should find out on the Essex forum since we'd probably apply to schools in Essex.

I never knew you had to use specific books for specific schools. Thanks for the information.

Books have their own styles and so do school exam papers. Bond books are good as they are able to be used little and often. IPS have maths papers that are designed in the same style with just a page full of questions. If you know what schools you are interested in then post in the Essex forum and ask for advice as to what papers are closest. CSSE sell past papers. DG

What would one use to align/match closely to the forthcoming CEM in the Midlands/Shropshire?

Which book is best for Warwickshire? We've only used Bond. My dd does quite well. I can't do them at all!

But if we've done the wrong books, we need to know now! It's not long now ...
