    Amazon do lots of papers. You don't really find any free online resources for 11+ but also check what your area does for 11+. Berkshire does Verbal and non-verbal reasoning and Buckinghamshire next door do an "un-coachable" exam, so have to concentrate on maths/english really so check to make sure you are spending your money on the right papers!

    Amazon and WHSmith have everything you need.

    In terms of Maths & English, look for 11+ papers, as well as 12+ if you're looking at super grammers and the level is appropriate for your daughter as she is nearer to the exam/s.

    With reasoning, I highly recommend the 'How to do Verbal/Non VR' before even looking at a paper (& only then do a couple.) Bond do a good NVR and Susan Daughtrey has a few books on techniques for VR. Unless you're naturally inclined for these types of activities, and I was pleasantly surprised how easy my children found them compared to my memory of sitting some for school entry at 13+, they can also look just like a foreign language.

    There are also free resources online for Maths & English so you don't really need more than one papers pack in my opinion (more to see the format/level/timing.) I looked up past SATS papers for Maths & English, including level 6. Answers online too.

    It's great to be prepared, but all the advice we received was not to overdo it. I know very few listen, but mine were both prepared in a week over the Xmas holiday, prior to the January exams in Y6 and did really well.

    Good luck!

    It has sections for each area, very important as different counties use different formats. So make sure you know exactly which format you need to be buying before spending money :)
