Test Time!!

Well, for most of us, our kids are coming close to taking the test again.

I'm curious as to how well your kids do, how much time you spend on preparing for the test and what you use to prepare?

Last year was DS's first time taking the test. About 3 months before, we spent extra time a few times a week using a test prep book. He didn't do as well as I had hoped. He said it was easy, but I think he didn't try so hard because he was more concerned with running out of time than actually getting the answers right. I found out a lot of what we had went over, wasn't even on the test. Do any of you know a book or a website that will have practice questions of what will actually be on the test? I'm not sure about other states, but our kids have to take the Iowa, and they take 2 on reading comp and 1 in math.

We took the Terra Novas (in October).  My 8yo scored late 8th grade reading level, 5th grade in math, 7th grade in science, and 4th grade in social studies.
