This advice appears to predominate particularly in environments where the assessments consist only of verbal or non-verbal logic, the point is that these papers test inherent ability and thus can not be “taught.”
But while it may be possible that Verbal Reasoning and Non-verbal Reasoning assessments do measure natural ability, tutoring tends to influence the test performance. Tutoring offers a better experience with the types of problems and encourages the child to use the strategies used to answer them, in almost the same manner as completing a Sudoku or a crossword, the more often you do it.
