Release Date: 2016-06-01
Genre:

The title says it all: Five Practice Tests for the Upper Level ISEE. These tests are carefully calibrated to match the style, format, content and difficulty of the actual ISEE. Questions are based on specifications from the Educational Records Bureau, which administers the test (and does not endorse this book). Questions also adhere to standards established by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Council of Teachers of English, both of which are identified by ERB as sources of ISEE material. Please note that unscored questions are not included on these tests. Since the actual ISEE contains some unscored questions, these tests are slightly shorter than the actual ISEE. Also, please note that answer explanations are not provided in the current edition.
