Test Prep Bundles for the WPPSI® Assessment from The Critical Thinking Company
The Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI–III and IV) is an IQ test used with young children. Like other IQ Tests the WPPSI is designed to measure skills and abilities, rather than grade-level subject knowledge. More information can be found at our link About the WPPSI

The WPPSI is not a test with a defined curriculum which a child can study for. Preparation in the traditional sense doesn't make sense. What does make sense prior to testing, and throughout our children's lives, is to teach them how to think and problem solve. Children who can make connections and understand their own thinking processes learn faster and retain more. It's a benefit for life.

You can prepare your child for testing and improve their chances of doing well by exposing them to a wide range of thinking exercises in different formats. The books and software recommended here have had decades of use with children successfully teaching them how to think. Research demonstrates an increase in scores on IQ tests including the WPPSI. The improvement in thinking skills will aid your child well beyond the test date.

Our top picks are listed at the bottom of the page in approximate order of difficulty. Follow the links at the top of the page to see additional suggestions for bright children at the same developmental stage as your child. You'll also find additional information as to why we suggest what we do.

Because the WPPSI is such a wide ranging test you'll see a lot of titles in our recommendations which you can use with your child in anticipation of testing. Instead of feeling overwhelmed choose things that your child will enjoy doing at a level that you think will challenge them. The range of products we sell were all selected because they develop thinking. Choose from what we sell and you can't go wrong.

The Educational Records Bureau (ERB) uses a subtest of WPPSI tests as part of their testing process for private school admission. Aristotle Circle has released the Complete Pre-K and Kindergarten ERB/WPPSI-III Practice Workbook and Block Set . This contains detailed information on the eight WPPSI subtests used in the ERB with hundreds of practice questions. They have an additional Picture Completion Subtest Workbook (Picture Completion is part of the WPPSI but not usually part of the ERB).
