  • What to expect in your verbal aptitude test or verbal reasoning test
    test The verbal reasoning test is timed Although different verbal reasoning tests may have different time limits you should expect to be given approximately 30 seconds per question The verbal reasoning test is designed so only 1 to 2 of test takers can correctly answer all questions within the time limit In the typical verbal reasoning test you are given short passages of written information followed by a number of statements and your task is to decide whether each statement is True This means that the statement logically follows the information provided in the passage False This means that the statement does not logically follow the information provided in the passage or Cannot Tell This means that there is insufficient information in the passage to make a decision regarding the statement It is important to notice that your answers must only be based on the information given in the passage This means that even if you have extensive knowledge in the specific topic which extends beyond the given information or may have information which contradicts the written information you should only base your answer on the information written in the passage Topics of passages include material from the social sciences physical or biological sciences and business related areas marketing economics human resource management etc Because the verbal test includes passages from several different content areas you may be generally familiar with some of the material however no specific knowledge of the material is required All questions are to be answered on the basis of what is stated or implied in the reading material There are other types of verbal reasoning tests A popular one also known as a logical thinking test includes a number of sets of arguments or statements Your task in each set is to identify which statement or arguments strengthens the principle argument in each question For example let s look at the following set of arguments or statements Only fish oil contains Omega 3 Only foods that contain Omega 3 help with brain development Which conclusion can be derived from the combination of these two statements All fish oils help with brain development Only what contains Omega 3 is fish oil All that helps with brain development is fish oil There are fish oils that help with brain development Answer explanation The third option c is the correct answer From the first statement A we can conclude fish oil contains Omega 3 The second statement B tells us that which contains Omega 3 helps with brain development If we combine the two statements in reverse we can see helps with brain development contains Omega 3 fish oil Thus helps with brain development fish oil See below some verbal aptitude practice test questions examples You can click on the image to enlarge Free Practice Tests Take our free tests to discover whether you need to improve your psychometric test aptitude tests and personality test scores Personality Free Test Aptitude Free Tests Course Previews Preview our psychometric test

  • The levels of difficulty of verbal tests
    who apply for different jobs to demonstrate the same level of verbal reasoning skills Their expectations of your verbal reasoning skills depend on the organisational level such as graduate professional and managers and on the type of occupation you applied for For example if you applied for a senior management role you are typically expected to demonstrate stronger verbal reasoning skills than if you applied for a graduate role Similarly if you applied for a role in HR you are likely to show higher verbal reasoning skills than if you applied for a payroll officer position What is a difficult verbal reasoning test Each verbal reasoning test has a specific level of difficulty This level of difficulty is maintained across all test questions However you are likely to expect the questions at the beginning of the test to be easier than those towards the end The verbal test s level of difficulty is determined by four main factors the length of the reading passage complexity of the text use of higher language rather than simple words and time constraints Typically lengthier passages make it more diffiult for you to comprehend the data and have sufficient time to read and solve the questions relating to the paragraph Similarly more complex text such as a passage on medical procedures for those who are not medical doctors places a higher level of difficulty on the test taker The use of higher language or rarer words in the English language add complexity to the text and require you to waste more precious time on comprehending the passage rather than answering the questions Time constraints is another fairly obvious factor that can be used to make the verbal test more difficult The typical verbal test is designed so you can take up to 30 seconds to solve a question This time frame also includes the passage reading time assuming that there are several questions per passage Therefore allowing test takers less than 30 seconds per question will make the test more difficult This means that even if you have good control over the English language and you are a quick reader you are still likely to hit some hurdles when taking the verbal reasoning test Therefore we recommend that you practise as much as you can before taking the real verbal test You can practise by taking some of our many practice verbal reasoning tests which are designed to match the level of difficulty of the real verbal reasoning test that you are likely to receive Upon completing a test you will receive a detailed report including scores correct and wrong answers and a detailed explanation for each answer so you can learn how to avoid making a similar mistake in your real verbal test You can also take our online verbal reasoning course to learn about the strategies and tactics for efficiently reading verbal reasoning passages solving verbal reasoning test questions and getting the knowledge you need about the test structure Free Practice Tests
