### Re: Maths Assessment Books

I use FAN Math for my child. For each topic, there is an easier test A, and a more difficult test B. This works for us.

If u need a more basic revision of the text book fundamentals (which may be needed for Fractions and some other tough topics), I recommend My Pals Are Here “Homework” book. My child’s school does not use it, so I bought it to help him revise certain topics using the step by step exercises.

If a child scores high 90s in lower Pri, will this series of books at be considered sufficient or too easy? If latter, can someone please recommend other titles? Is this series considered easy/same or more difficult when compare to other schools' exam papers? Thanks in advance.

### Re: Maths Assessment Books

If the child is already scoring high 90s in lower primary, just go straight to:

- Practise on the various schools’ actual past year exam papers. They provide the real life questions that really come out. These are all available FREE (just do a search online for free exam papers SG or similar) - just have to print them out yourself - if u look at the PDF file naming convention, u can have a quick gauge which schools set more challenging questions. Generally, the SAP schools set the most challenging questions, and NYPS sets the toughest in SG. Once the child is able to master these, definitely will be able to maintain 90++ for Maths.

I don’t waste time with any of those “simulated” exam papers sold at Popular. Even for Science. The only advantage I can think of is, they contain full answer solutions (May or may not be correct, especially for Science) for parents who aren’t familiar with the syllabus so dunno how to mark.
