CARDINAL EDUCATION HAS PUBLISHED A 4th EDITION OF THE MATH WORKBOOK. PLEASE VISIT THIS LINK FOR OUR GREATLY EXPANDED 4TH EDITION: http://www.amazon.com/Math-Workbook-ISEE-SSAT-HSPT/dp/1491089415/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1438307838&sr=8-8&keywords=isee+math This third edition of the Math Workbook for Middle School and High School Entrance Exams has been updated from the second edition to reflect the most up-to-date knowledge of the private school admissions exams, as well as to incorporate new insights gleaned by our experts as they used the second edition to prepare students for these exams. The philosophy of this math workbook remains the same as in our second edition; rigor and drill. Because these are the first tests that actively try to trick students at every turn, those who sit for these exams need reflexive familiarity with mathematical computation, problem types, and strategy. The entrance exams are the first standardized tests for which budgeting time is a significant issue. Students need to spend the majority of time on analysis, rather than computation, to avoid getting tricked. By building skills, speed, and confidence, we hope to eliminate anxiety and give students a solid foundation on which to build excellent scores. This book is intended as a supplement for our highly trained staff, so it does not include strategies. However, motivated students can use it successfully with occasional help from a teacher or parent. Each chapter is comprised of units, with each unit comprised of problem sets with difficulty increasing in a logically progressive manner. Students should do as many of the problem sets for each unit as it takes to achieve a 90% accuracy rate. As a general rule, students taking lower level exams should complete chapters 1-8, and stick to “basic” questions in chapters 9-15. Students preparing for high school entrance exams should go through the entire book. While private school entrance exam preparation is the primary purpose of this book, we recognize that it may serve other purposes as well. This book would be useful for anyone looking for a workbook that encompasses all fundamental math concepts up through an 8th grade math program.

Cardinal Education is an educational consulting and tutoring company based in Palo Alto, CA. Guided by a philosophy of fulfilling students' academic potential in a way that boosts skills and confidence for life, we work to maximize successful middle school, high school, and college admissions outcomes. While some of our methods defy "conventional wisdom," we have a proven track record with a broad range of students: the Ivy League bound to those wishing to avoid community college, the self-motivated to the intransigently jaded, and the profoundly gifted to learning disabled. We have a passion for expanding students' dreams and helping them attain their goals. Cardinal Education believes in the social value of a strong public education system and sponsors pro bono programs to bring private sector expertise to bear. However, government fiscal policies are shortchanging public schools of opportunities: activities, sports, variety of classes, advanced classes, student-teacher ratios, and counseling departments. The "private school imperative" means that despite economic trends, admission to private school is becoming so competitive that it necessitates standardized testing excellence.
