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 reasoning tests:

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

  • Read the question and instructions properly. Read the questions first, by doing so you know what you are looking for in the provided passage.

  • Therefore, take your time to carefully read the information provided.

  • Verbal reasoning tests are administered under exam conditions and strictly timed. The given time per test differs per test publisher; some tests give relatively generous time limits, while others are shorter.

  • Be prepared with a pen and a piece of paper when doing the online test.

  • Don’t cheat. This is an important one. Many employers use verification tests to validate your previous results, to see if you have collaborated on your test. Large test publishers often use software that compares your response patterns and performance between the online test and the follow-up supervised test.

  • Candidates are required to answer questions using provided information only. It might happen that an exercise contains factually incorrect information to mislead you. When answering a question you might fall for a catch-question. This is why it is important to read the text analytically and to use only the information given in the exercise.
