Doing some research about the tests that you need to take is the most important step in preparation for any aptitude test. If you know what to expect you will increase your chances of performing well due to the fact that you’re familiar with the formats. Also, by practicing aptitude tests you will reveal your own strengths and weaknesses that you can work on in preparation for the actual assessment. 

Therefore, we advise you to find out the test publisher and exact name of the tests that your are about to take, and then search or contact us to get more details about this test. 

These effective test-taking strategy tips and ticks are well worth remembering before you take the actual verbal analogies tests:

  • Practice, practice and practice some more to ace your assessment and aptitude tests!

  • Take your time to carefully read the instructions before the test starts.

  • Try to determine the relationship between the first pair of words.

  • Turn the analogies into sentences. Read the analogy problems as sentences, even if they aren’t actually written that way.

  • Go through tough problems systematically.

  • Read all of the answer choices first before making a decision. This might sound obvious, but candidates commonly stop reading the answer choices once they’ve found what seems like a strong match.

  • Eliminate any pairs in the answers that do not have a similar type of relationship.

  • If the meaning of a word is unknown, then try to recollect the context in which you have come across the word.

  • Also, consider alternative meanings of words.

  • Take another look at the relationship possibilities as described above and try to look for them when trying to solve analogies.

  • If all else fails, eliminate the unlikely answers and make an educated guess.
