Full of Mistakes! Apr 14, 2008
Unfortunately, this version of the series is full of mistakes in the English section. Not just a few, but many, blatant errors. Also, some of the passages are not written in proper English (yes, they are supposed to be). I've bought other versions (different grades) of the series and have run into this problem before, not for every version, but several. So beware, especially if you're not as proficient as an English professor to correct the tests without help from the answer section. this site carries other standardized test books that will be of great help to your child.
Good, but could be better Apr 19, 2001
This book is very good in that it offers numerous questions, which gives the student very good practice, but the answers that follow have no explantions. Also, it lacks info on the actual format of the test, the pacing a student should use when taking it, and the time allowed. The tactics given are helpful, but this book would have been better if the book had set times the student should try to achieve, offered explanations to the preceding questions, and given more information about the format of the test. However, it did offer much practice, which was very useful.
