You are fantastic! Thank you for such great customer service! we’re ready for the ACT Aspire! You’ve been a spectacular help.

Stephanie Hardy
Teacher at St. Thomas Of Villanova

I have to say I am “wowed” by your customer service! 🙂

These are such amazing preparation books and online practice questions. Even though my son is in the gifted program (class’s syllabus is one grade higher) but the practice books and online questions really help him to prepare and get familiar with the different sections of PARCC. It also helps us determine his weakest areas (he thought he has none), which is wonderful!!!

We started purchasing and using the Lumos books last year for his first PARCC test. We did not pay attention nor noticed there were more online practices until this year!

“This workbook is a great addition to the Lumos Learning family! I like how they have the separate workbook for each set of skills.It is a great idea to buy a book for specific skill as it has standardized testing giving more specific feedback to teachers and parents alike.It is filled with challenging problems ranging from simple computation to word problems requiring multi-steps.”

SBAC Test Prep: 5th Grade Math Common Core Practice Book and Full-length Online Assessments: Smarter Balanced Study Guide With Performance Task (PT) and Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT)

“I have purchased the grade 5 math and English Language Arts SBAC Test Prep books from Lumos Learning. These books are very special from other workbooks for a couple of reasons. First, the answer section not only gives the correct answer from the multiple choice question, but it explains how to work and solve the problem.
My daughter liked the book and got an opportunity to practice the skills independently. Online piece is also available for more learning.”

This is an excellent resource for any 7th grade struggling Math student and it covers everything a student should know for Common Core whatever your opinion on Common Core you have to admit these standards aren’t going away and this test preparation manual is one of the best out there and as an educator myself I highly recommend this as a supplemental aid to the regular Math curriculum. You will not be disappointed the author of this prep book covers all bases ensuring that your student will be successful if you use this to help with Math.

“This book has passages and questions for both Literature and informational text standards. Each question has the standard number beside it for easy to use planning and assessment. It also has a detailed answer key with explanation of correct and incorrect answers-. Excellent for Test Prep. One drawback is several lengthy passages with only 2 or 3 questions. But overall this product can be very useful.”

I like this book because it mirrors the format of standardized tests that I have seen given. This practice is giving my daughter the confidence she will need to do well on this assessments. She will be familiar with format and have extra practice necessary to be successful. I recommend this book for any 3rd graders!”

“The practice book is exactly what I need to help my students prepare for the PARCC! Most of the questions are written/ stated exactly like the test. I also appreciate the explanations for the answers. I have never taught math before so this is exactly what I need!!!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed this carefully constructed piece of mathematical work. The content is clear, helpful, and will be useful for not just my generation but for future ones to come. Highly recommended.”
Jordan Thomas

The practice test workbook is useful. Since the PARCC was a brand new test for everyone, no one knew what to expect. It’s good to have the practice tests so my mind has an idea what this test’s about. The online practice tests are fun. My son liked the questions and did it well. He took the PARCC about 3 weeks ago. The tests took part in two days. Each lasted 75 minutes. My son said the first-day test was long and difficult to him. He finished the test about 90%. The second day was easier and within his level. He finished the test without difficulty. His teacher claimed that it was pretty much the same feeling from his classmates. My son said the questions in the tests were similar to the workbook’s, but some questions were longer and more difficult than the workbooks.

Common Core Assessments and Online Workbooks: Grade 3 Language Arts and Literacy, PARCC Edition

“Great resource to prepare for the FSA! The best part is that it has an online component. The question stems are a good way to have students be exposed to what they may see on the actual test. Great practice.”
Suzy

I ordered this book for my daughter who seems to forget everything she learned in math within 1 week of vacation. It’s amazing she remembers basic arithmetic. Her summer assignment was to order a math book to review what was covered throughout the school year. The book that was suggested was $23.00 which was completely ridiculous. I found this for $8.00 we have covered 1/2 of the book. I personally loved the answers at the end of each chapter. I don’t have to sit and figure the problems out myself.

This book is very informative. It effectively teaches the reader the skills and knowledge the reader needs to know to prepare for PARCC tests. The content of the book is very professionally written, and the style of writing is very friendly to any reader wishing to improve their English skills. The book contains many pieces of writing/ collection of paragraphs which are designed specifically to test the reader’s comprehension in the English language. Not only do these exercises improve skills, but the writings are fun and enjoyable to read, sometimes written as fiction and sometimes as nonfiction. The questions to be answered are made to test the reader’s understanding of the piece of writing. Besides offering the skills needed to do better at PARCC and Smarter Balanced Tests, it also gives the tools. The tools given with the book are highly useful, and I recommend this book to anyone who wants to do very well in the PARCC Test.

Common Core Assessments and Online Workbooks: Grade 4 Language Arts and Literacy, PARCC Edition

“This is an awesome book..it has helped my kid to comprehend so well. I definitely recommend it to every parent.”
Sam
Parent
This is a great resource for parents to use with their child over the summer months. As a teacher, I see how much time classrooms must spend to review material that has been ‘lost’ over the summer vacation. This resource will offer your child a quick comprehensive review on standards he or she will be expected to have mastered in 4th grade. It also includes an answer key that gives a detailed explanation to help guide parents if their child finds a problem challenging.
Tofu
Teacher
This series of workbooks offers valuable practice to kids to help avoid the loss of skills over the summer vacation. Helpful suggestions of extra activities for parents, students, and teachers are offered and the separate skill practice sections contain a daily breakdown that are not too overwhelming to the learner. The answer section contains very detailed explanations for each answer. The layout of this workbook is appealing and doesn’t appear as drab work for the child. I liked answering the questions myself!
