Format: Paperback
I had found the content of other numeracy testing books to be far too easy than is required in the actual tests. However, the level of this one is, as it promises, somewhat higher. Most people will probably need to spend some time brushing up their general maths and statistics before they attempt some sections but this book asks questions of a fairly similar level to those in real numeracy tests and so is well worth buying.

I'm using a version of this book which has a different cover to the one advertised, so hopefully this means that there is a new version of this book, which has fixed all the errors mentioned in other reviews. But, while this book is good for practicing higher level questions, many of the solutions are at best dubious, or at worst blatantly wrong/contradictory - which make it very confusing to use. I've used other similar publications and not been aware of such poor accuracy. Not to be recommended.

This book definitely provides a wide variety of numerical excerises. Where it miserably fails however is the in the accuracy of the answers, where the sheer number of mistakes, not typos but the actual numerical mistakes this book is trying to teach you to avoid, is beyond reason.

If you are confident with your numerical skills this book will offer you a good practice. But if you intend to use this book to actually learn numerical skills keep well away

This book is better that many comparable books on the market for graduate tests, however the graphs are small and very difficult to read and some of the answers to the questions are blatantly wrong (they were checked by several maths tutors) which can be very off putting.
Overall, worth buying to practice for, but tread carefully!

If you want to have a taste of what real numerical tests are, this could well be your choice. It has very similar level of difficulty as that of the ones you'll face in reality. Try to practice everyday up to your test day, and don't skip the advice at the beginning of the book.
A bit of warning though, some problems are literally confusing; a few questions have obviously wrong answers; as for the mock tests, some time allowance are more than necessary while others are extremely tight. So don't be put off, all you need is a balance between speed and accuracy. Finally, questions in mock test 4 have more than one answers(why didn't he tell us in advance??)
Overall, I enjoyed it.

There are blatant mistakes in this book which make the whole process annoying and hindering, as you will always double check whether or not you are write or the book is write.

Furthermore, the explanations in the answers are rarely helpful. Explanations are provided for the most mundane questions, yet much tougher questions are answered without any explanation whatsoever.

Frustrating to say the least

I thought this would be a useful way to prepare for the psychometric tests that are now commonplace for most graduate schemes. It isn't. It seems there simply wasn't enough time/resources for at least one human being to proofread this before it went to print. On this point alone it should be disregarded. Even if one overlooks these problems (graphs without labels, clumsily worded questions and answers that are just plain wrong) the book still lacks a coherent focus. What do I want from a book like this? Lots of the difficult data analysis questions that come up in real tests. What do I not need? Questions about the functional dependence of curves, definitions of business lingo or business judgement graphs (none of which I have ever seen come up on tests for the many business and management related schemes I have applied to). I have gotten far more out of practising the free online practice tests that can be found scattered around the web.
