Verbal reasoning test tips
1One question = one minute rule
Make sure you understand how many questions you will have to answer and how long you have to complete the test. Usually, verbal reasoning tests consist of 15 to 20 questions and don’t last longer than 15 – 20 minutes. Also note that while some tests have a number of questions per passage of prose, others have a new one for each.
2Go with the flow, and if there is no flow - go anyway
Don’t get stuck with one question because easier may follow. It’s as important to stick to timings, as to get a right answer. Some assessments allow you to go back and review/amend answers at the end. If you finish early go back and review the answers to the questions you flagged earlier.
3Learn from your mistakes
Focus on reviewing the questions you get wrong at the end of each verbal reasoning test. Review the solutions and try to understand why you have chosen the answer wrong. You will learn more from your errors than from those answers which you got correct. After all, to think critically, also means scrutinizing your own thoughts.
4Practice under exam conditions
This means completing practice tests in one sitting and to time. Do not practice in an environment where you are easily distracted and not fully engaged. This will maximise the efficiency of your preparation time and help you to accurately track progress that you have made.
Try to measure your achievements against other users in order to make sure you stand out in a crowd. The average results might help get to the next stage, but might not be enough to get the job. Preparation times can often be as stressful as the actual assessment centers. It’s no surprise that no one enjoys spending time preparing for them, but think of this as an opportunity to get really well prepared and differentiate yourself from the competition.
