Category Description for Mind Benders:

Deductive reasoning at its finest. Mind Benders books help students (and adults) learn and practice deductive reasoning as they are presented with clues to unravel and organize in order to reach logical conclusions. Becoming proficient in deductive reasoning will not only improve standardized test scores, but will help sharpen reasoning ability in all curriculum areas and in real life situations. As a child, I particularly enjoyed working these clue-and-grid type problems and consumed puzzle books full of them just for fun. I never gave a thought to their educational value. But perhaps it's no coincidence that I ended up a computer systems consultant..... Anyone doing Mind Benders for the first time should begin in the Verbal or Book 3 level to learn the deductive reasoning process before trying the more challenging levels. The original books are leveled A1-C3, and were out of print, but some levels are now available again. These

If it is true that "Mind Benders Verbal" is highly educational AND if it is true that "Mind Benders Verbal" is funwhat must be true about a student who is using this book? They are learning AND having fun! This book is full of mindbenders: some that will be easy for your student to solve right away some that will make them say "huh?" and all more skillfully written then my introduction to this review :) I think this book is an affordable and important addition to your homeschool collection It really does help your student develop his/her critical thinking skills It is not something that you necessarily need to add into your daily schedule although it wouldn't be a bad addition We primarily use this book while we are on the go We do the mindbenders periodically on a long road trip while we wait at the doctor's office when we're in a long line etcI would not recommend them for super quiet places though because as the title suggests they are meant to be done verbally My son has the best luck with them when he can "think through" them out loud I think the price for this book is fair but if you are going to write the answers I would recommend doing it on notebook paper so you can use the book with mulitple students I hope you enjoy this as much as we have
