While we sell the entire Critical Thinking Company range of books and software and love their award winning products we do not recommend their NNATŪ Prep bundles if you have a gifted child who will be tested in the next six months. The reason is that the contents of each grade level bundle are based on national performance standards for that grade level. If you have a gifted child you probably want a higher level material than would be used by the average child of your child's age. We recommend our T
est Preparation Bundles for Gifted Learners taking the NNATŪ
or, if you have a specific need, browsing our selections by grade or by skill.
The Critical Thinking Company has been publishing award winning products to help students of all abilities achieve higher test scores for over 50 years. The contents of these bundles were carefully selected by The Critical Thinking Company to ensure coverage of material tested on the Naglieri Nonverbal Abilities TestŪ (NNATŪ). Each activity requires students to analyze, synthesize, and apply what they learn. The more students think about what they are learning, the more students understand what they are learning. There is no need for an expensive tutor with a resource for the NNATŪ like this selection of books.
The Critical Thinking Company is recommended by Mensa, Learning Magazine, The Well Trained Mind, Dr. Toy, Creative Child Magazine, and used by Sylvan Learning Centers, Club Z In-Home Tutoring, leading U.S. public schools, and gifted and talented programs in 57 countries throughout the world. They guarantee better grades and higher test scores.
In addition to the books each bundle contains a short NNATŪ Test Prep Guide.
The Critical Thinking Company bases the level of its material on national standards. A typical child working at grade level will be ready to use the material designated as suitable for that grade. The NNAT is a difficult test. In our opinion for your child to perform well enough to be accepted into a competitive entry program (gifted, honors, private school) they will need to perform at a higher level than that of these bundles. If you have a bright child and are hoping they well be accepted into a competitive entry program you recommend that you browse our Test Preparation Bundles for Gifted Learners taking the NNATŪ
. These bundles contain products from multiple publishers so you get more variety in presentation. You may also find it helpful to review our suggestions for gifted children by grade level
to help determine the most appropriate level for your child.
Whatever level your child is working at the titles likely to be most beneficial are those discussed in our section About the Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability TestŪ (NNATŪ)
