I am from Reading and my son is going to write the 11+ test november 2009 for Reading boys school.
Is there any parents trying for this school in 2009
You are ahead of most people in your planning for 2009 exam.
Starting early means you can take a more relaxed approach, little and often is best.
My DS1 sat in 2006 and has just started in year eight at Reading, it is worth the effort. When you find the going tough have a look at the school web site and the 2008 GCSE results.
I am working on DS2 for 2010 but in a very low key way. Their are now some good starter materials from Bond (NVR), Bond (English) and the Tutors (VR) so we are working on basic techniques.
Happy to help, it helps me to, I am still learning.
Best to post Reading questions on Berkshire, you will get more responses.
Good luck with the work.
