Recommended 11 plus physical resources

Some of us prefer physical resources instead of online practise. A member of the 11 plus Journey on Facebook started this discussion inviting others to put their recommendations forward.

Following is a list made with the recommendations given. I have included links at the end, should you need them. (These are not affiliate links).

Please be aware that there are different books for different age groups and levels, so please check before you decide to purchase if it is appropriate to the age you are looking for. This is not an exhaustive list and I am not affiliated with any publications or resources. For a list of online subscription sites, read this article.
