I’d like the free test prep for the G&T test in NY for my 17 mo old daughter (unless you recommend I wait). Also, what tests should I be be looking at and what strategies are applicable for a child her age, if any?. I am new to all of this and don’t know when a good time to start is.

Any information would be much appreciated.
