4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection of authentic exam-style IQ test questions

This is a book of puzzles with scores. However, the scores do not relate to IQ levels and the text admits that this does not constitute an 'IQ test', practice or otherwise. This is a book of puzzles in the style of IQ tests but that's all.

This is an excellent collection of authentic exam-style IQ test questions. The book is set out clearly and without fuss, allowing the reader and candidate to focus solely on obtaining some highly beneficial practice, and nothing more.

Each test consists of 40 questions which are recommended for completion within one and a half hours. There are 20 tests in total, with full answers provided at the back, and with many answers containing useful but concise explanations.

As the previous one-star reviewer points out, this book indeed advises the reader in the introductory preamble that it will not provide an authentic IQ test score. This is on the basis that the collections of test questions have not been standardised. Without going into the details of standardisation, I believe this position is entirely reasonable.

After all, if you need a book to tell you that you're clever, then perhaps you shouldn't even be buying this book at all. However, if you are preparing for some form of psychometric testing, or perhaps even the Mensa Entrance Examination, then this book will undoubtedly prepare you, allow you to make your own notes and learn the styles of the questions that you are likely to see. Nothing could stand you in better stead for a real IQ test. Not even an provisional IQ test score.
