    Be fast. Don't get hung up on any questions. Don't get disappointed by your score. This is a reminder that I need to practice much I need to read! Please inform test takers that a calculator will be needed.

    I like the test because it juggles my memory, it made me think of solutions to the arithmetic problems provided. The test should tell someone to be readily prepared with a calculator, because there are a lot of arithmetic problems that needed to be solved, that is one thing I dislike

    Time Limit Was Pretty Rushed

    Thought the time limit of barely over a minute per question was a bit accelerated. Easy questions, just take time to figure out.

    Good questions

    Good questions but data figures load each time when we touch the figure which seems to be uncomfortable

    Sales perspective

    It was moderate to take but I am not familiar with the sales concept so it was a little difficult. Overall it was good.

    The test was very good

    I would like to recommend companies to use this method of testing, as these results will make companies aware of how to place their workers
