The questions on the CogAT and NNAT cover cognitive abilities that are not directly taught in school. These are abstract thinking abilities such as problem solving, classifying and categorizing, recognizing patterns and sequences, reasoning with shapes and figures, deductive and inductive reasoning, mathematical reasoning, and much more.

At BrightNup Academy, your child will have great opportunity to build their cognitive skill through teaching of problem solving, learning tricks, working through the class assignments and practice test. Your child will get to know how to think appropriately to solve a question and how to avoid common mistakes with our guidance and lots of practice, your child will be able to perform at his or her true ability for a fair and accurate evaluation during the actual test.

1)      Long enough sessions to cover entire aspects of the testing

My son is in eight grade and I have been looking for a place to prepare him for TJ exam. I have enrolled him in BrightNup’s TJ Prep program. The English and Math teachers are excellent. They are so detailed that my son gets everything that he needs to master a concept. We are really glad to have enrolled him in BrightNup’s TJ Prep program.

We have enrolled both my son and daughter in BrightNup’s English and Math programs. I see tremendous value in these programs. The curriculum is very structured and weekly worksheets are just great.  Moreover, the class is very small-sized and the teacher is superb. I wonder how BrightNup has found such a nice and dedicated teacher.  She makes learning fun for young kids! I see a tremendous improvement in them in just two months. I am so pleased that I have started recommening my friends to enroll their kids to BrightNup programs as well.
