I have never posted a negative review before but I'm so dumbfounded after reading all the 5 star reviews. I thought I should share my point of view to help others weigh the pros and cons to see if this book is really a good fit. I learned it certainly was NOT a good fit for us after reviewing this book in whole.

I bought this book because my son tested on the low end of average on a test, so not a serious problem, just in need of some focus and learning test taking skills. I spoke to my mother about this book as she worked for an excellent school system writing the actual reading tests given to kids, then for a publisher of text books. She stated that kids at this age need to learn both strong reading comprehension as well as good test taking skills... that the writers of these tests try to fool kids into wrong answers, in a way. They do this by making the answer options all similar to things mentioned in the paragraph in question, leaving the correct answer not clear to those that either didn't bother to fully read the relevant paragraph or to those that are truly having trouble retaining the facts as represented in the paragraph. However, this book (in my opinion) is full of questions so simple, little or no reading let alone comprehension seems to be necessary to find the correct answer. This might even actually teach kids that it is often ok to skip or skim the segment and that common sense can often answer questions correctly. This could be devastating if a parent is hoping to improve test taking skills and help teach a child to focus and retain important information they have read and once the child takes a real test, is lost in the weeds. On the other hand, this may be good for kids that have a major reading and vocab issue that needs attention.

In the past, I did not feel like children should use test workbooks this early. After we enrolled in Beestar weekly reading program (an excellent web site [...] we realize that there are so many kids doing so well. No wonder the standard tests keep raising the bar. A low expectation from parents only leads to low achieving children. This book boosts your child's vocabulary, reading, and test taking skills effectively. It gives you a good chance to know how much your child learned in school. No matter how he was taught, the book would cover the bases and practice what he learned. We enjoyed this fine book very much!

Are first-graders too early to use such a book? Shouldn't I worry about tests years later? Those were my questions before. After we enrolled in Beestar weekly reading program (an excellent web site [...] we realize that there are so many kids doing so well. A low expectation from parents only leads to low achieving children. This book boosts your child's phonics, vocabulary, and reading effectively. It gives you a very good chance to know how much your child learned in school. No matter how much your child's teacher teaches, the book will cover the bases and practice what he learned.

I bought this book to prepare my fifth grader for Beestar online reading assessment. Like other books in the series, this book provides fairly good stories and articles composed at grade 4-5 levels. The topics are very informative and kids friendly. It is perfect for my child to practice and get ready for standard assessment tests. We only see a few challenging words in the text, so your fifth grader probably can proceed lesson by lesson without difficulty. My child's Beestar assessment test was slightly harder. But the concepts and skills are the same. Overall it's a fair book serving the purpose.

Good reading cannot be achieved overnight. Young kids need to learn and read extensively to build their skills. Taking practice tests is an effective way, because they are questioned and results are clearly measured. Without feedback, you don't know where you are or what you need. This book provides tests on phonics, vocabulary, grammar, reading, and even reading graphs. My child used it for assessment as well as for learning. Very good contents. The book is short though; my child finished it in 3 weeks. For further practice, I found Beestar ([...]) very helpful, too. My child's reading skills are improved quickly with such test drills.

I'm an educational therapist. I love the Scholastic series of workbooks in all subject categories for my students. This particular book is great practice for standardized tests - but it also helps a student gain confidence - something often missing with students who don't think they can test well. Practice helps.

This has been a big help to the children that I tutor. The third graders have anxiety problems with reading sections and comprehension answers. The selections are short enough not to be too intimidating. Good job! I have the math tests too and they work well for my math students.
