Dear Dorset Parent
Can only help on VR [ not as clued up on the other subjects, but I am learning]
Nfer multiple choice VR can either come with the standard 15 types [as used in their shop bought tests] OR 21 as used by Bucks, the Wirral and possibly others......rumour has it that some areas will increase to 18 types.
The only publishers that cover the correct 21 [and therefore 15] are:
IPS, AFN, Susan Daughtrey [ Bright Sparks series ONLY] The Tutors and of course NFER [15 types.]
There are 2 books available on method and technique...IPS and AFN
Number sequences.....child MUST make notes on how they 'GET' from one number to the next in order to 'SEE' the sequence.....can involve all 4 maths operations [sometimes a mixture], sequence can go alternatively, occasionally the total of the first 2 numbers = the third followed by the total of numbers 2 and 3 = the 4th etc
Its practice and seeing many variations
Vocab....have you seen my list, with instructions in the free download section [bottom of the page]

Z questions [reading information/which statement true]......again its making notes, generally in tabular form......Child must always leave these questions till last [only 1 mark for lenghty working out time.....better to lose 1 mark than 6/7/8]...
Take a look at my test advice too.....
