The Best Time for Test Preparation is Now
Standardized testing is becoming more and more common. As parents and teachers we want the children in our care to have every advantage. The range of products we sell were selected because of their ability to teach, and extend, fundamental thinking skills. Children with strong analytical skills will learn faster, retain information more easily, and test better.

Use the products sold here, as designed, and you are guaranteed higher grades and improved test scores.

Tests are often categorized as either cognitive ability (IQ type) or achievement. The unique strength of the range we sell is in systematically teaching the skills cognitive ability tests (including the CogAT, NNAT, OLSAT, WISC, Stanford-Binet and others) test for.
Follow the links for more information about the tests we're asked about most frequently. Other tests can be found in our Directory of Tests. If you can't find what you're looking for here please email and ask.
  • CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test from Riverside Publishing)
  • OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test from Harcourt Assessment Services)
  • NNAT (Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test from Harcourt Assessment Services)
  • WISC-IV (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children)
  • WPPSI (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Intelligence Scale)
  • State Achievement Tests (CAT, STAR, FCAT, ISAT, ITBS, SAT, MCAS, TAKS and more)
If you don't know the name of the test your child will be taking our GATE Test Preparation Bundles are a good place to start. Each grade level bundle has a selection of products designed to develop the core cognitive skills which most cognitive ability tests used for admission to Gifted and Talented Programs aim to measure.

If you are looking for a conventional test preparation book for a standardized achievement test we recommend the Spectrum range. These are also suitable for introducing a child to the process of multiple choice testing prior to their taking a cognitive ability test. The Test Prep series teach children the skills, strategies and techniques necessary to succeed on any standardized test. The Test Practice series provides additional practice tests.
