Test Prep: Grade 4
Home-taught children who are not prepared for their yearly standardized tests are at a distinct disadvantage to the government- and privately-taught children. If you reside in a state that requires standardized tests, you should know that a vast majority of certified teachers teach with the test in mind. In other words, teachers understand the types of questions that will appear on the standardized tests, and they will spend weeks preceding the tests covering the necessary information. If you do not do likewise, your children stand a chance of performing poorly in comparison.
For those of us in a state where some form of testing is required but never scrutinized, preparing is not as critical. However, some of you are in states where the test results are not only analyzed but used as a basis for whether you may continue to home educate. Why not make sure your children are "playing on a level playing field"? The Test Prep series offers students the essential groundwork needed to prepare for standardized tests.
Based on subject areas covered by most state standardized tests, these colorful, inviting workbooks provide a good sampling of all the skills required of each grade level. Practice pages, strategies, tips, and full-length practice tests build test-taking confidence and skills in subjects such as reading comprehension, vocabulary, language, and math. The test tips are beneficial, and the information and instructions are super-easy to follow.
Developed by a leading educational publisher, Harcourt's Test Prep provides a great opportunity for children to review before taking standardized state tests. Engaging, practical, and easy to use, Test Prep will help your children face the tests with the same confidence that their peers will have.

Nice layout with some colored ink and pictures to make it a bit more interesting.
So we save this book for the end of the year, just as suggested by Timberdoodle. Looking through this book, I think it will do a nice job of reviewing everything we should have covered this year, and to be able to go over stuff that didn't quite stick. I'm excited to see what we "score" at the end of this year!
These books are great for test practice. It will give you the confidence that you are on the right track with homeschooling! And they’re a great price!
