What's Inside our Online ISEE LOWER LEVEL Test Prep:

Test-Taking Tips

Master the ISEE Lower Level exam with specifically designed tips and strategies for the Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and essay sections. (Whew.) Learn why Shmoop's guide works exactly like a high-quality deodorant, how words set us apart from the animal kingdom, and what geometry has to do with the world's largest toothpick structure.

Learn why the skills you'll need for the exam are exactly the same skills you need to be a Belgian detective with a weird mustache, why there are two math sections with different names, and why it's important to try hard on an essay that won't be scored.

Two Full-Length Practice Exams

The ISEE Lower Level exam includes two math sections, a verbal reasoning section, a reading section and an essay. According to our calculations, that adds up to…well, a seriously big test. Luckily, Shmoop has three full-length practice exams (that's 3 × 5 = 15 sections, for those of you playing along at home) to help get you into fighting shape.

Practice Drills

Get psyched to take the exam with our passel of practice problems for the ISEE Lower Level exam. You say "practice," we say "drill"! Practice! Drill! Practice! Drill! Practice—oh, just go ahead and do them already.


There are a lot of math…and reading…and verbal reasoning concepts on the ISEE Lower Level exam. We understand. Take our diagnostic exam to figure out which ones are good to go and which ones need a little more time in the oven before they're ready to come out.

Planning to ace that test with Shmoop? Oh, ISEE.
