Book Description

3 July 2005

Although most people believe that there is little we can do to improve the intelligence we were born with, the brain can be exercised just like any other part of the body. Thought processes and intelligence scoring can be improved by practising different types of testing.

This new title from IQ expert Philip Carter is a companion volume to the best-selling IQ & Psychometric Tests, and it includes not only hundreds more new practice questions, but also answers with explanations. The broader format allows space for writing answers and making notes, and readers will be provided with feedback so that they can assess thier own strengths and weaknesses. Topics covered include: verbal aptitude tests, numerical aptitude tests, visual aptitude tests, problem solving tests, personality questionnaires, and advice on adopting the right approach to psychometric testing.

The IQ & Psychometric Test Workbook provides an ideal opportunity for anyone to improve their IQ rating, or individual performance at psychometric tests, through continual practice and self-assessment.

3.0 out of 5 stars incredibly difficult 17 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Incredibly hard, but incredibly hard for an eighteen yr old to brush up on tests. Found more helpful gtests on lnternet for him to test himself on. Gave up with book as too difficult. If incredibly clever with words might be worth considering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 10 Mar 2011
By W.M. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for an upcoming interview where the company is notorious for given psychometric exams to their applicants. It is well worth the money for its content and variety.
I must admit though, the tests given in this workbook sure make you feel stupid when you wrack your brain trying to solve a problem and find out the answer when analyzing your results. Above all a very good book and I plan on buying more of these books from the same author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overlap with other of his books 20 Dec 2012
By Lemas Mitchell - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First things first: I emphatically do not recommend buying this book on Kindle. The price for a paperback version is about the same as for the Kindle version. Given the difficulty of handling the Kindle version (flipping back through for answers, etc), it would actually be worth paying up to 50% more just to have it in a more convenient format.

The second question that I have of the book is that the author spends a whole chapter on Personality Testing-- but if the purpose of this test is to get a taste of what an actual IQ test would be like, then what is the point of giving us something where there are no right or wrong answers?

The third thing that comes up is: Some of these questions were so easy, I can't imagine that someone would include them on a standard IQ test. Some of these things were from 9th grade geometry. There are only two general IQ tests and it is not clear if they are like what we would see if we went in to actually take a test.

The fourth problem is that his verbal analogies test......well, I am not sure how much of a basis it had in reality. A lot of his words, when I checked them again in the dictionary didn't mean what he thought they meant. And perhaps there are some differences in English usage between the English and the Americans that account for this, and in that case that's another thing of which to be careful when using this book for practice.

A lot of the problems were actually recycled from Ultimate IQ Tests: The Biggest Ever IQ Test Book (Ultimate Series).

It seems that there were a couple of mistakes in the problems (i.e, the answer that was given was not the same as to the problem that was presented in the section).

It might have worked out better if the author had given us 5 or 6 timed tests and then allowed us to check our answers so that we could get an idea of what our score would be. And omitted things that were not scorable.

This book is not bad. But once again, I emphatically DO NOT recommend buying this book on Kindle.

As a (now retired) teacher, I found Philip Carter's books valuable tools to keeping the kids (and me) sharp. A page a day for the kids before class got started was a popular beginning to each day. Now, without the students, I still have the books. Carter is not perfect, and once in a rare while, there is an error, or a problem not comprehensible to American kids versus British or Canadian kids. But hey, who cares! They learn a little something about a larger world.

I found it very useful and it helped me a lot in the test I had to do. I'd recommend it. Simply explained with good examples of what might be asked in the test.
