Description and Features

Teach students to apply their critical thinking skills when taking tests!

Description and Features

All standardized tests measure the ability to think carefully and critically. This easy-to-use, fun 220-page book teaches students how to use highly-effective critical thinking skills and other strategic test-taking skills to improve their test scores. Unlike most practice tests that lack vital instruction in test-taking skills, Thinking Skills for Tests teaches and provides essential practice with thinking skills that form the base of both verbal and nonverbal reasoning and logic. It also includes solutions with helpful explanations.

In the process of learning and practicing these thinking skills, students will have the opportunity to practice listening and following directions. They will also discuss answers so you can assess their thinking and assure them that they're thinking carefully. This book also teaches them to answer questions even when their answer is uncertain or the question is difficult. This practice can build confidence, reduce anxiety, and remove obstacles that can hinder students from performing their best on tests.
