The Upper Level ISEE can be a very challenging test. Extra practice can make all the difference between a good score and a great score. That's why this book has more questions than even 10 full-length exams - well over 1,500 practice questions dedicated only to the Upper Level ISEE. You won't find any material in this book related to another test - there's no filler here! In this book you will find: * A bonus diagnostic test, to help you pinpoint the areas in most need of improvement. * Critical skills and concepts broken out by topic, so you can zero-in on key areas. * Questions that progress in difficulty, to help you expand your knowledge base and prepare for tough questions. * Helpful hints and suggestions, to help you make sense of the material. * A bonus practice test, to help familiarize yourself with the real thing. This book can be used for independent practice or for study with a professional educator. For best results, we recommend using this book with a tutor or teacher who can help you learn more about new or particularly challenging topics. Though there is an answer key for all questions, this edition does not have detailed answer explanations included.
This book contains 2 full-length practice tests for the Middle Level ISEE based on the latest guide published by the ERB. The tests in this book will give you an idea of the types of questions you will see, the concepts that are being tested, the format and timing of the test, and a sense of how the scoring works. This book only includes the tests -- it does not include content instruction. It is designed to complement the other Middle Level ISEE publication from Test Prep Works: Success on the Middle Level ISEE: A Complete Course -- This book provides comprehensive instruction on the content and strategies required to ace the Middle Level ISEE, including vocabulary lessons and drills, math content lessons and practice sets, reading strategies and drills, tips for the essay, and one full-length practice test (with different questions than the practice tests in "The Best Unofficial Practice Tests for the Middle Level ISEE," so there is no overlap between the books.) These books can be used independently, or they can be used to complement each other, depending on the needs of your specific student. Please note that the tests in this book are neither produced nor endorsed by the ERB.
NOTE -- A newer edition of this book was published in 2014 and is now available, with expanded topics in the math content section and a full-length practice test. You can find this newer version by searching for "Upper Level SSAT" - the description for the newer version states that it was updated in 2014. This book provides a complete course for preparing for the Upper Level SSAT. Instruction is comprehensive for both the strategies and content that students need to ace the Upper Level SSAT. Success on the Upper Level SSAT includes vocabulary lessons that ask students to categorize words and derive meanings from roots so that they can handle anything on test day. This book also includes math content lessons that explain what concepts will be tested, as well as how these concepts will look on the actual SSAT. In addition, there is a very detailed section that provides strategies and drills for the reading section of the test. As a bonus, there is also advice for the unscored writing sample that students will have to produce on test day. Whether you are a family looking for a book to use independently or a school or tutoring company looking for a new text, this is the book for you. Test Prep Works produces the only books on Amazon that are completely updated for changes made to the SSAT in fall of 2012, and the only books that are specific to not only to the SSAT, but also to the Upper Level SSAT. Success on the Upper Level SSAT: A Complete Course is also the perfect companion to 30 Days to Acing the Upper Level SSAT. The complete course gives in-depth strategy and content instruction, while 30 Days to Acing the SSAT provides practice to make strategies automatic. Problems are not merely repeated in the two books. Expert preparation starts here.
This is a newly-revised, 2014 edition of this title, including additional math practice in each workout. 30 Days to Acing the Upper Level SSAT gives students the proven strategies and practice needed to successfully prepare for the Upper Level SSAT, including: The fundamental strategies that will help students ace each multiple-choice section of the test: verbal, reading, and quantitative 15 workouts that include practice for each type of question on the test Detailed explanations for every question to help students analyze and improve their performance Each workout can be completed in a single sitting, making it an ideal amount of practice for students to complete between classes. This book is designed both for students and families to use independently and for educators to use as a text with their students. While most other prep manuals mix together instruction for very different tests into one single volume, all of the material in "30 Days to Acing the Upper Level SSAT" is specific to the Upper Level SSAT. Students can use this book confidently and independently without being distracted by material that is not relevant. Test Prep Works has developed a full series of books for the Upper Level SSAT, including: Success on the Upper Level SSAT: A Complete Course -- Students benefit from the comprehensive content instruction, test-taking strategies, and practice provided in this book, including vocabulary lessons and drills, math content lessons and problem sets, reading strategies and drills, and one full-length practice test. 30 Days to Acing the Upper Level SSAT -- Students looking for more practice will benefit from the 15 "workouts" in this book, and instructors can use the workouts as assignments that reinforce test-taking strategies and help measure progress. Each workout includes practice questions from all sections of the test and can easily be completed in a single sitting. This book also introduces the test-taking strategies that are critical for success on the Upper Level SSAT. The Best Unofficial Practice Tests for the Upper Level SSAT -- This book consists of two full-length practice tests with answer keys, allowing students and instructors to measure progress and preparing students for what they will experience on test day. (Note -- These practice tests have different questions than the practice test in "Success on the Upper Level SSAT: A Complete Course" and the two books can be combined for a total of three full-length practice tests.) Each book in the series can be used independently or they can be combined with each other, depending on the needs of the individual student.
