    Quantitative analysis of market data

    What I liked was the opportunity to test my quantitative analysis skills and to learn more about industry market trends. I didn't quite like the need to make quick and rough calculations for the designated time limit. Anyway, it was nice to have a try.

    It was a challenge

    I liked it a lot because I like the challenges but I do consider that calculations had to be done to know the exact values and there was not enough time (that dislikes to me) but I had to use logic to be able to answer

    Surprising

    I found it surprising that the test was mainly focused on Maths rather than communication as I would have expected. Still, I found it extremely useful!
