Product Description

From the Author

I wrote Psychometric Tests for Graduate because I wanted to help graduates pass the psychometric tests all the big companies use these days to recruit staff. It’s not enough to have a good CV or even a stunning interview technique – you have to pass the tests if you want to get a great job.

There are loads of psychometric test books around, but I really wanted to provide a book full of GENUINE tests. Not what I call the ‘magazine variety’ but the real thing. In other words, graduate-level tests from SHL Group, the test publisher used by all the big companies.

I also wanted to help people once they’d got throught the initial screening tests and were faced with an assessment centre visit by giving them information, advice and practice with personality questionnaires, management tests and exercises.

This book is a follow up to my first (and very successful) psychometric test book, Passing Psychometric Tests. See my web site for more information, book reviews and reader comments.

Format: Paperback
The key to the book is in the title, 'Know what to expect...'. And that's about all you're gonna get! The tests are usually less than 5 minutes and some aren't even timed and some just say, 'do it as quick as you can'. As soon as you've finished a test, you find that the section on that particular topic is over and there's no room to really get in the swing of doing a 'test' as such.

I found the questions really easy and a little bit insulting at times especially when I timed myself for a 3minute test and finished in a minute. What I also found a bit inconsistent was the longer test which lasted for 14mins (the only long test in the book) this was a 'combination test' and though I could handle the 2-5mins tests very easily, this one was quite tough. When I finished it I realised how much I need to improve but...surprise, surprise... no more long tests of that kind!!

Though I was quite disappointed in the content, SOME of it was of use and I wouldn't complain that much if the book was free.

In short. The book is fine if you want an overview of psychometric test and some examples of '...what to expect...' but the bit about 'Passing Psychometic Testing' must be in a different volume because this book on its own isn't going help you.

Approx. half of the book is pointless reading about strategy and the science behind it all; I really didn't get this book to write a thesis on the nonsense of psychometric testing! It would have been a much better value book if it was full of examples/questions as this is the only way to get to grips/improve on such testing.

An interesting book which is basically a collection of logic tests but it explains what the setter is looking for, it does not do them for you but explains the procedure if you interested in building these tests there are better books

Format: Paperback
Passing Psychometric Tests by Andrew Shavick is excellent. Initially covering what psychometric tests are in straightforward but significant detail before moving onto why they are used and how to prepare for their taking. The wide range of examples with tips on how to approach each of them, plus self-tests and their answers covers about all you need to assist with your confidence when approaching the daunting task of actually sitting a test paper.
