  • How to prepare for Inductive reasoning tests
    information and to find solutions It is thought that inductive logical reasoning abilities indicate the ability of a job applicant to think conceptually and analytically and is considered to reflect general intelligence Therefore it is important to effectively prepare for inductive reasoning psychometric tests through practicing psychometric tests online Inductive reasoning tests often require test takers to compare various attributes of elements such as the shape or colour or in terms of size and number For example you could be provided with a row of five boxes featuring various shapes and be asked to find a logical sequence of these boxes A correct response requires you to detect a pattern which may involve spotting similarities and dissimilarities or both Such tasks may be demanding at first and it is important to practice psychometric tests online before your real test so that you can enhance your logical reasoning skills to solve such problems Similarly you may be presented with series completion problems e g picture series number series whereby you are required to detect the underlying relationship to generate predict or select the next item or items in the series The overall aim of such tests is to measure your ability to compare attributes or relationships Inductive reasoning is sometimes referred to as hypothesis construction which means that the test takers solution tends to be based on educated predictions This also helps to explain why various types of biases may obstruct you from forming a logical conclusion and thus making errors on your psychometric test Practicing for inductive reasoning tests It is important to note that inductive reasoning is both a competence and skill and therefore it can be improved through practice Jepson et al 1983 Through practicing inductive reasoning psychometric tests online you can improve your logical inductive reasoning abilities and thus your ability to solve the inductive reasoning test items you will be presented with in your real psychometric test Given the often unfamiliar nature of such tests it is particularly important to gain exposure and practice before sitting your real psychometric test Practice inductive reasoning tests online IPC has a wide range of inductive reasoning practice tests Inductive reasoning test questions vary according to their level of difficulty and complexity You must ensure that you are practicing inductive reasoning test questions which are of the right level of difficulty and complexity for the job you are applying for IPC offers tailored indicative reasoning test questions for more than 90 positions and job levels Full reports including detailed answer explanations Upon completing each inductive test you will immediately receive a full report including your total score a list of correct and incorrect answers and detailed answer explanations to ensure you use the correct methodologies and approaches when completing your real test This will save you valuable time and ensure you get the right outcome Inductive reasoning test courses online IPC s inductive and abstract reasoning test courses offer you the ins and outs of the test Effective test taking

  • The level of difficulty of your numerical aptitude test
    role What is a more difficult numerical aptitude test Each numerical aptitude test has a certain level of difficulty that is fairly consistent across all its test questions However you can expect the questions at the beginning of the numerical test to be simpler than those towards the end The level of difficulty of your numerical aptitude test is typically defined by three factors complexity of numerical data amount of numerical data and distractors and time constraints As the complexity of numerical data increases the numerical aptitude test becomes more difficult Complexity of data is typically related to the number of transformations or calculations you need to do to find the answer The amount of data relates to the wealth of data offered in a test question Some questions only offer the numerical data you need to get to the answer but others have much more data that is used to distract your attention and consume precious time Typically a numerical aptitude test with a higher level of difficulty would have more distracting data The third component is the time limitation A simple rule of thumb for time constraints is that a numerical test question should take you around 45 to 60 seconds to complete Therefore a test at a higher level of difficulty will allow you less time for each test question Practising for your numerical aptitude test The levels of difficulty of numerical aptitude tests mean that even if you have a good background in maths and you are good in solving numerical questions you are still likely to hit some hurdles when you are taking your numerical aptitude test Therefore we recommend that you practise as much as you can before taking the real numerical test Online practice numerical aptitude tests You can practise by taking our practice numerical aptitude tests which are designed to match the level of difficulty of the real numerical aptitude test that you are likely to receive Upon completing each practice numerical test you will receive an immediate full test report including your total score compared against others applying for a similar role a list of your correct and wrong answers detailed answer explanations for each test question so you can learn how to avoid making a similar mistake in your real numerical aptitude test Online numerical aptitude test course You can take our online numerical aptitude test course to learn about the strategies and tactics for efficiently solving numerical test questions brush up on formulas to calculate percentages work efficiencies distances exchange rate time travelled etc The numerical aptitude course also includes the do s and don t s of the numerical aptitude test and numrical aptitude test questions examples We strongly recommend that you take the numerical aptitude test course to get the ins and outs of this test Then apply this knowledge into practice using our practice tests Free Practice Tests Take our free tests to discover whether you need to improve your psychometric test aptitude tests and personality
