Karen Quinn has successfully taught hundreds of parents how to prepare their children for testing, and Testing For Kindergarten is her ultimate, comprehensive guide to having fun while teaching to the underlying abilities every test assesses.

As an expert who has successfully taught hundreds of parents how to work with their own children, Karen Quinn has written the ultimate guide to preparing your child for kindergarten testing. The activities she suggests are not about “teaching to the test.” They are about having fun while teaching to the underlying abilities every test assesses.

Intelligent test secrets revealed for the first time. This book uncovers the various types of questions that children are being asked on different intelligence and gifted programs evaluation tests and provides the tools that will allow children to excel and maximize their potential. Many grade-school children are required to take intelligence evaluation tests or gifted-program qualification tests. These tests are usually aimed at predicting the child's ability to participate and cope with tasks that require a high intelligence level. The tests pretend to be objectives and provide a non-biased indication of the child's ability. However, studies have shown that this is not the case, and children who were prepared and practice similar tests get significantly higher results. True, someone who is not intelligent will not be able to get high results even after massive training. Still, training allows gifted, intelligent children to realize their full ability and make the most of the stressful test situation; 10%-25% improvement is guaranteed for every child.In this book you will find over seventy sample tests, covering twelve different types of questions, including: * General knowledge and vocabulary* Verbal comprehension* Conceptual relations* Shape sequences and matrices * Arithmetic problem solving and series * Pattern recognitionIn addition to the sample tests, a thorough explanation for all types of questions is provided, covering all possible variations, demonstrating the best methods and strategies and providing useful tips and tricks. This is the only available book that provides this kind of thorough preparation for all types of IQ tests, through fun parent-child quality-time bonding experiences.
