4.0 out of 5 stars Good practice
I bought this to practice for aptitude testing.
It has a good introduction to each type of test with plenty of examples. There are loads of test questions which a lot of other books don't contain. The only disappointment for me was the lack of explanation of the answers. It only tells you what the correct answer is without any reason for it. On a few of the Abstract...

3.0 out of 5 stars not really what i wanted
i ordered this looking for practice tests, and whilse there are some, it is really a lot of reading explaining how to work out how to do the aptitude tests correctly. So if you are looking for explanations, this will be excellent, but if your looking for practice tests, pick a different book

I bought this to practice for aptitude testing.
It has a good introduction to each type of test with plenty of examples. There are loads of test questions which a lot of other books don't contain. The only disappointment for me was the lack of explanation of the answers. It only tells you what the correct answer is without any reason for it. On a few of the Abstract Ability questions (shape sequences) I really struggled and even with the answer I couldn't see why it was the odd one out. The Jim Barrett Aptitude Test Workbook explains EVERY answer which I found really helpful, although it only contains 400 test questions. I would still recommend this book for practice but perhaps buy the JB one as well :)

Easy to use, loads of examples of tests which is exactly what I was looking for, and shows the differing degrees of difficulty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but several drawbacks, 26 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Psychometric Tests For Dummies (Paperback)
The book is ok, it gives some tips and an opportunity to practice, but there are a number of drawbacks. The Numerical Reasoning tests in this book are easier than the SHL tests that are used by many large companies. There are no explanations for the Abstract Ability tests and it seems impossible to understand some answers. There are several mistakes in Spatial Ability tests. The explanations for the Strategic Thinking tests are a bit confusing and I couldn't completely agree with all of them.

This review is from: Psychometric Tests For Dummies (Paperback)
Purchased for a grandson who needs a certain pass mark so as to enter his chosen career. Well explained but could have done with more practical examples to work on.

Excellent delivery, excellent condition. I just wanted to stretch and challenge my brain and teach myself about recruitment tests. An interesting book, easy to read and to understand...I always find these 'dummies' guides generally useful anyway.
