    I disagree.

    I've taken several IQ tests that have varied as much as 18 points. My lowest one was taken when I was stressed and tired.

    Children who have very limited educational backgrounds will usually not score as well as those with rich learning experiences. Would you expect a five-year-old whose mother has a limited vocabulary and has not traveled more than a few blocks from home to do the same on a verbal IQ test as one from a home with educated parents?
