Hello! Does anyone have experience of both Atom Learning (to practise for ISEB) and Keystone online? Atom is much more expensive. Would anyone recommend any in particular to help best prepare for the 'mechanics' of the ISEB next November? Thank you for any guidance.

I have no experience of keystone but we used Atom last year and it was very useful. You can get a 5-day free trial, I'll advise going for £60 subscription as it has the mock tests. We discovered it towards end of our prep so, didn't have to pay too much.

We used Atom too and I did find it really expensive (just over £200 for 6 months), but it must have been helpful as my son did get an offer (and scholarship). He told me after his pretest that he recognised some questions from the Atom Maths.

Thank you both very much for taking the time to reply, much appreciated! We'll do the free trial and see, possibly subscribe a bit later. Not many people have heard of the Keystone one. A Head (or other senior person in education, can't now remember) mentioned it in one of the London schools magazine and said the questions were the closest to the ISEB, so I was intrigued.

that's good to know thank you above^. I looked into Atom Learning because right now paying £50 for just one hour tutor.. so it sounds better long term

I saw when I went on their website they're offering free online lessons to anyone in English, maths and reasoning. we signed up on their website so looking forward!
