Format:Paperback
This book is useful if you have not done psychometric tests before. Otherwise you may find the sample tests given a bit too basic.
Answers are given at the end of each section, but without explanation. This makes it difficult to work out why one made mistakes in some sections, such as Abstract Reasoning.
Another big minus point is that the tests in this books (published 2005) are merely a superset of the tests in the author's other book "Psychometric Tests for Graduates (2003)". This means that if, like me, you have previously purchased "Psychometric Tests for Graduates", then it is probably not worth paying the money to purchase this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the basics but not for higher levels 8 Oct. 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is really good for giving you an idea of the basic level of psychometric tests but having just taken 'the real things' I felt underprepared on this book alone. Buy it if you have never done these type of tests before and you have a while before you are expected to take them for real, but find something else if you need to cram in a short space of time!

2.0 out of 5 stars Practice makes... 27 Mar. 2013
By Mogzi
Format:Paperback
There is a limited scope to what this book offers, but it does not really do too much more than what the title indicates. The review of this item really needs to be brief because that is indicative of the value to the customer.

This book is good for practice, you can check your answers after performing the exercise. Herein lies the limit of the book: it is just practice. It does not explain, neither does it delve deeply into the mechanics of each answer so it is a good book to supplement another similar resource in much the same way that practice tests online are. If you want detailed explanations go for a more suitable alternative such as:

How to Pass Numerical Reasoning Tests: A Step-by-Step Guide to Learning Key Numeracy Skills

Or other test specific publications.

In the dire need to reiterate, this is simply practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Helpful when prepping for interviews 29 Jun. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are worried about the numerous tests you have to go through to get a new job, I recommend this book. I spent a few hours going through it when I was looking for my latest job, and it really helped. I felt much more confident going into the tests, and some of the questions from the book were in the the tests themselves - bonus!
