Mountain View, Calif. (Jan. 11, 2012) – Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, announces the launch of a new study guide to help students prepare for the Lower Level Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).
We know that there are plenty of bright, motivated 4th- and 5th-grade students who want to grab their futures by the horns and take an active part in improving the quality of their own educations. For those brave souls, or for those of you who are being coerced into taking the test by your parents, there is help.
After reading our ISEE test prep, you will:
- Understand how answering sentence completion questions can help you track down globetrotting criminals, or vice versa.
- Realize why Ti Quan Do is more than just a misspelled martial art and can help you kick some reading comprehension butt. Only use in self-defense, like when a paragraph lashes out at you without provocation.
- Learn what driving a Ferrari blindfolded* has to do with unit conversions. And no, we are not talking about converting your vehicle to scrap metal.
- Ponder whether eating your weight in Skittles is really all that bad, especially considering what it could teach you about algebraic word problems. Taste the rainbow...of knowledge. (Corniness intended.)
*Performed only by professionals. Do not try this at home.
In addition to showing you exactly what you can expect on test day and how you can prepare for the ISEE, our guide provides an in-depth topic review that covers both the Math and Verbal portions of the exam. Then, when you are done reviewing the material, take our drills and practice exams to get in the zone. Just remember to put your pencil down when you are done. Also, stop writing on your computer monitor with a pencil.
Let Shmoop’s ISEE test prep guide help you prepare for the biggest test of your life...until the 8th grade, anyway.
