This has to be an error. There shouldn't be two possible options - just because a word begins with a capital letter doesn't mean it's not a word. I don't think there will be any like this in the real 11+. Personally, I would go with: - if you've found a real word, mark it, and move on.

I agree with guest no 2. The question says find a 4 letter word. It doesn't say anything about the start of a sentence. Maybe it's a typo on this book. I hope the real thing doesn't have any errors !

We found this too and agree with Guest 2.

I liked the first Bright Sparks set but haven't been impressed with this latest one. I don't know if I'm imagining it, but they don't seem to have much in the way of original or challenging vocab. I'm sure a lot of it has been repeated from her previous publications.

Dear All

Yes, we have spotted same mistake. If mistakes are found the best thing to do is to write to the publisher, I do all the time. Some sort others do not...

With regard to using vocabulary from previous publications....

As far as I am concerned, for Bucks and areas using Multiple Choice, it doesn't matter because her previous publications have been standard format, I would not be using BOTH types.

Patricia,

Can you please confirm.

Is it correct that if a word ie find a word in the sentence begins with a capital then they are not to use that word and look for another without a capital, I am now confused and slightly panicking?

Thanks
THOM

Dear Thom

The above example is a mistake as far as I am concerned.

If a word is found in the first two words and that word begins with a capital letter then it makes no difference, it is a correct answer.

Any views on how all these (especially NFER) compare with the AFN tests 1-4? It's quite hard to get a benchmark.

hi guest my son found AFN harder than nfer. he scored 82+/85 in all nfer papers and completed in 50 minutes but he struggled in few AFNs and he said he hated those ones.

Dear Guests

AFN are known to be slightly easier than most publishers. A few of their question types differ from NFER format and of course they contain 100 questions instead of the normal 80.
.
Publishers for 21 types M/C include The Tutors, Walsh IPS and Bright Sparks
