GATE, TAG (Talented and Gifted), PRISM, GT or G/T, Academically Gifted
Program, Extended Learning Program, and many others...

These programs often have the lowest student-to-teacher ratios, the best
teachers, and additional funding that regular classrooms do not receive.

In order to get your child into your school's best programs, your child will likely
need to pass one or more of the gifted program entry exams.  There are several
exams usually given for these programs and these exams can be divided into two
types:

  • Achievement Tests, which are a measure of things that your child would
    have learned in school - such as reading, math and, in some cases, science
    and social studies.

  • Aptitude Tests, which are a measure of intellectual ability, focusing on
    analytic and problem solving skills rather than specific knowledge.

Aptitude Tests aim to evaluate your child's intelligence and only those children
who receive the highest scores are selected for the best programs. The questions
on aptitude tests are not things they have learned in school and are types
questions that they have probably never seen before exam day. If they don't
understand the types of questions or if the directions are not well explained on
exam day, your child will not do well on these exams and will not have access to
the best teachers and best programs.

Many parents have been frustrated that their children's scores on these exams do
not reflect their intelligence and many kids have missed out on these programs by
only a point or two on the exams, year after year.  Our practice tests have
changed that.

Mercer Publishing is the publisher of the original full-length practice tests for the
two most common aptitude tests - the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT®*) and
Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test® (NNAT®*).

Our practice tests have helped many kids get into their school's best programs.  
Many of our kids score in the top 10% of the nation, some with perfect or near
perfect scores!  

Stop buying those other workbooks to prepare for these exams!
Our books may seem shorter, but doing questions in the format of the exams is
worth far more than doing thousands of pages in those other workbooks.

"Thanks to this
practice test my
son got a perfect
score on the
NNAT exam. He is
ranked in the top
1 percent of the
nation.

Last year, we
bought hundreds
of dollars worth of
workbooks that
contained
thousands of
pages of
questions, but he
did not do very
well at all. This
year, with just this
practice test he
got a perfect
score. This was
money well spent!"

Because of this

skeptical when I
received this small
booklet, but it
does the job!
