Engineering Tests Tips

1Understand the Format

Before you even start practicing, get comfortable with the structure of the tests. Knowing what to expect can ease nerves and help you manage your time better during the actual exam.

2Sharpen Your Skills

Focus on the skills that will be tested, such as numerical and spatial reasoning. Use online resources, textbooks, or courses to improve in these areas.

3Simulate Test Conditions

Practice under conditions similar to the real test. This includes timing yourself and working in a quiet environment to build your test-taking stamina.

4Review and Reflect

After taking a practice test, review your answers, especially the ones you got wrong. Understanding your mistakes is crucial for improvement.

5Relax and Stay Positive

Have a good night’s sleep before the test and maintain a positive attitude. Being well-rested and confident can significantly affect your performance.

    Interesting test

    The test is good to gauge a person's ability to make quick judgements without pulling out a calculator.

    Economy And Overall cost

    The question asked in the test have a medium level of difficulty. For logic building this test is very useful for college students. For taking this test, our basic knowledge is very strong. I like this test most because the questions asked in the test are not easy for everyone

  • United Kingdom

    Reading the question to make sure you use the correct data

    Liked the open view of the data and how it changed throughout the test rather than manipulating the same data set

  • Philippines

    analysis

    like: can be computed manually and trained me to have quality under pressure answers dislike: none so far

    Keep a cool head!

    It was actually very easy but being a timed test made it seem hard. That's why you don't have to panic, and trust that you're doing the right thing. Move steadily - not too fast and not slow either.

    is to never give up on my dream job

    what I like about this test is that it is challenging and I have to use my brain. And my dislike of this test is that the calculation is hard for me but I will practice them to be successful in maths.

  • United States of America

    October 05, 2022

    very hard but also i didin't mind some of the problems

    i liked it because it is helping me toward my engineering goals and i also didn't like it because if i fail this it will make me rethink my choices to be an engineer.

    Estimation based on knowledge

    The questions require a bit of concentration and critical analysis, however at the end it is just guessing

  • United Kingdom

    Good Test

    Not too challenging but it really does engage the brain. Excellent gateway for the harder aptitude tests

  • Australia

    Reasonable test, but definitely not engineering

    This test is quite generalist. It would be suitable for someone who has complete high schooling in mathematics, or someone starting uni in a STEM field.
