Just to make it clear, with regard to VR if it is NFER, Bond is not relevant, more so if the test is multiple choice.
The Bond how to book, covers 5O types of questions, all in standard form [different techniques are used for M/C] Nfer cover either 15 or 21 types [more and more areas are switching to 21] Bond only cover 17 of these. You are therefore 4 types short and teaching 33 that are of no relevance.
For Method and technique of the 21 types used you can look at The Tutors free download

Or buy the IPS M&T book

With regard to the shop bought NFER M/C VR tests please note that they ONLY cover 15 types, if your area is 21 you will need to top up with types HIKNOS as identified by IPS or types 16-21 as identified on The Tutors CD Demo
Can anyone explain the difference between the NFER and other papers?
I've looked through numerous sets of papers and they all look the same to me. Is it the style of questions or perhaps the level difficulty, ie the number of questions to be answered in a given time?
There is definitely a difference in the types of questions used [VR] The Publishers relevant to NFER VR include, IPS Susan Daughtrey [Bright Sparks NOT her books 1-7] The Tutors AFN [slightly easier] and Walsh.
