The best way you can prepare for an administrative assistant test and interview is to do your research.

Reviews of our Administration tests

What our customers say about our Administration tests

  • United States of America

    August 03, 2021


    The timed test portion is very strenuous and the questions are vague. They need to add more detail to the questions for people taking the test to understand what is being asked.

    general comment

    The questions are based more on numerical ability of the candidates. There should be a mixture of questions from multiple fields, considering that administration does not only deal with numbers.
