"Instructors have faced a lack of practice material specific to the Lower Level ISEE," said Abbott. "This book gives them a resource to measure their students' progress and have their students practice new skills by giving the 15 workouts as assignments between sessions." Each workout includes vocabulary instruction and practice for all four sections of the ISEE. This allows students to effectively and efficiently learn material broken into managable pieces.
The book starts with a review of the test format and an introduction to test-taking strategies for each section. The 15 workouts follow, each designed to be completed within 30 minutes and followed with detailed explanations of the correct answers. "It is critical for students and instructors to understand WHY students answer questions incorrectly,"
