These thinking skills books are our favorites because of their tremendous scope. They develop four basic analytical skills (similarities/differences, sequences, classification and analogies) through both figural and verbal problems. In addition, there are problems dealing with deductive reasoning, map skills, Venn diagrams, mental manipulation of two-dimensional objects and much more.
