Preparation

We understand the value and desire for parents and students to “preview” the types of questions presented on each level of the ISEE. We also want to make it as fair as possible for all families to gain access to the same information. Therefore, ERB offers preparation books for each ISEE level free of charge when downloaded from this website.

What to Expect on the ISEE

Regardless of how or where your student takes the ISEE, the best way to prepare is by reading the What to Expect on the ISEE guide for the appropriate testing level and format. Please note that these guides are not training books for exam strategies, and they are not a shortcut to higher scores. The goal of these guides is to help families understand the general format of the test, the test directions, the types of test items, and the answer sheet. While other companies claim to have ISEE preparation books, know that the What to Expect on the ISEE guides on this website are the only guides authorized and approved by ERB.
