This book provides suitable preparation for the University of Durham CEM 11 plus test. Numerical Reasoning tests are now increasingly common in 11 plus exams. This book presents numerical reasoning questions for all the major national curriculum topics suitable for the preparation of Numerical Reasoning questions of the 11 plus exams. Numerical reasoning is typically based upon mathematical worded problems requiring understanding and mathematical manipulation of data presented. Questions are designed to measure the ability to interpret, analyse and usually draw conclusions from tables and graphs. Although some mathematical ability is required the primary element being measured is the ability to reason with the facts. In the 11 plus sphere these numerical reasoning problems are often multi-level, requiring several conclusions to be drawn or several scenarios to be considered from the same initial information.
