Category Description for Spectrum Test Preparation 2007:

From the people who bring you the Scoring High, test-specific series, these are by-grade-level books that prepare students for any of the five major standardized tests. Activities reinforce test taking skills through examples, tips, practice and timed exercises. Subjects include reading, math and language - unlike other subject-specific test books. A hefty 150-pages each, including an answer key (no separate teacher book to buy), we feel these are both a great value and useful tool to:

help students become familiar with the test-taking experience, which may help reduce stress and anxiety when performing on an actual standardized test

teach test-taking and problem-solving strategies designed to improve performance on standardized tests

identify any “holes” in instruction which could hinder performance on a standardized test

practice solving problems or answering questions within a limited time frame so students can learn to budget and manage their time during a test (or in life!)

Revised and updated in 2006, this series includes more standards-based test questions and more nonfiction reading passages.




Category Description for The Spectrum Series:

If you're looking for a basic practice workbook, consider this series of educationally solid, quality books. From McGraw-Hill, these books have their roots in basal lines like SRA and Merrill (and other lines combined into the SRA group over the years). Because customers have asked for good, basic, interesting practice books, I've looked at many (including all the different ones those customers have mentioned). These are unquestionably the best - the best value, the most educational in content, the most interesting (even without little characters and graphic "gimmicks"); all in all the most complete, comprehensive and appealing of the lot. These are more like complete worktexts than mere practice books, but at a low cost. Material is secular but wholesome (some of it looks like it could have been culled from earlier textbook lines, before they "modernized") and traditional in format, but varied and involving. All series are written to be primarily self-instructional. The pages are all perforated and answers are included. Below are the

I have used the Spectrum Test Prep series for the past 7 years and it has been invaluable for my son to help him feel more comfortable with the year's standardized testing and to glean some valuable tips which help not only with testing but also with general study skills The exercises point out "holes" in his learning so I know what I may need to pay extra attention to This enables both of us to go into testing relaxed and confidentThis program is extremely easy to use since it is divided into clear lessons Just a couple of lessons a week are enough to hone my son's skills and increase his comfort level as our yearly testing time approaches My son is sorry to see this series end for him and I have to admit that I am too It's a great supplement to use with your child to hone their test-taking skills
