Format: Paperback
The book does everything it says on the book. It is excellently organized, it covers the various tests from all the major testing firms, which are the most likely to come up to any test you will encounter, and most importantly, it gives you an idea of the logic that these tests are constructed with! You will see an immediate improvement after you read this book...

A small but excellent book (a book quality is not directely related to number of pages and size) that does quite well what it says. Basically the book has three timed tests based on 3 different approaches.
-SHL which is and I quote " direct descendant of the abstract reasoning element of the Differential Aptitude Test (DAT), originally published in 1947 by the Psychological Corporation ( there is a new edition) ".
- Oxford Psychologists Press using Raven Matrices.
- ASE (Assessment for Selection and Employment).
The first two tests have 40 questions and are timed at 20 minutes.
The last has 75 questions and the same time.
The answers are find at the end of the last test in tables, and in a new chapter a very thorough and detailed explanation is given for each question.
In a last chapter considerations are made about interpreting the scores achived and a comparison with people that has made the same tests.
I consider this book a very good introduction to this kind of reasoning and a base to continue working with many more and different tests.
A very good value for your money.

When I saw this book I thought I had found exactly what I needed. From the title I was expecting it would cover all sorts of diagrammatic tests yet I was wrong. It may be right for people taking tests for IT jobs but I did not find it useful for my interview with a professional service firm. It does not cover the input-type diagrammatic tests, the ones with symbols that change figures and objects, otherwise called abstract thinking. I would not recommend it if you're going for an accountancy interview.
