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 inductive reasoning tests:

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

  • Take your time to carefully read the provided instructions.

  • 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.

  • Try to look at only one aspect of a shape at a time. Look at orientation, size, location and the movement to decode the pattern.

  • Stay calm, you will do great! If you’re stuck and can’t spot the pattern try starting at the end of the sequence and work backwards. This might give you a new perspective.

The easiest way to solve an inductive reasoning exercise is to find different kinds of patterns within the figures. Through practice it will become easier for you to find the pattern. 

In the figure series above, you will find the following patterns:

Pattern 1: The thick line turns clockwise to the next point of the star.

Pattern 2: The dot turns clockwise to the point of the star one after the next one.

The correct answer is: ANSWER D
