New York, NY (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
New York’s premier tutoring company, Bright Kids NYC, has added to their repertoire of Gifted and Talented books by releasing new NNAT®2 practice tests and OLSAT Verbal Books. For the NNAT®2, a second practice test has been released for Levels A, B, and C. For the OLSAT®, two new titles have just been released: Arithmetic Reasoning and Following Directions and Aural Reasoning
The Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test – Second Edition (NNAT®2) comprises 2/3 of the 2013 Gifted and Talented Exam in New York City. It is designed to provide a nonverbal measure of general ability, and is administered for placement into gifted and talented programs throughout the country. NNAT®2 items do not require the student to read, write, or speak, so students must rely on reasoning and not on verbal skills to solve the problems presented to them. Just like the actual NNAT®2 test, our new practice tests contain a total of 48 questions. Understanding the content and the format of the test will enable children to perform to the best of their ability on test day.
The OLSAT®, or Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, is the other 1/3 of the exam. It is designed to measure verbal, quantitative, and figural reasoning skills that are closely related to scholastic achievement. Children are tested in four clusters on the OLSAT: Verbal Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Pictorial Reasoning, and Figural Reasoning. All questions are presented in a multiple-choice format. For the New York City Gifted and Talented Exam, only the Verbal Subtest will be administered, for a total of 30 questions.
On the Arithmetic Reasoning subtest, the skills practiced involve the use of addition, subtraction, and equation building from spoken word problems. The new Bright Kids Arithmetic Reasoning book is divided into six sections and has a total of 100 questions to prepare students for this subtest. The two remaining subtests are Following Directions and Aural Reasoning.
Bright Kids NYC Inc. was founded in New York City to educate parents about standardized tests such as the ERB, Stanford-Binet, Gifted and Talented (OLSAT®/NNAT®2), ELA/Math, ISEE/SSAT, and the CogAT through workshops and consultations and to prepare young children for such tests through assessments, tutoring, and publications.
