Step 1: Read the question carefully

While answering the questions, it is important to read the question carefully. Unlike standard numerical tests, data presented in these tests are both numerical and verbal. Each set of questions are accompanied by a passage of 150-200 words.

Step 2: Be prepared for financial terms and conditions

These tests may have financial concepts and definitions you might not familiar with. Terms like market capitalization, profit margin etc are common in the world of finance, but you can find these words in a more complex way, no matter how simple their mathematical representation is.

Step 3: More Elaborative calculations

Unlike numerical reasoning tests whose questions need not more than 3-5 mathematical calculations, financial reasoning tests can ask for more elaborate applications and calculations of the latest mathematical expressions.

Step 4: Psychology is the major factor in these tests

In this test, one of the important roles is played by Psychology. Employers want to see the potential of the candidates to draw conclusion and assumption using logic, even if he or she is not familiar with the specific field.

Step 5: Take care of the scoring method

The scoring method of this test is not as same as other tests. If you give the wrong answer, your points will be reduced. So while answering the financial reasoning tests, make sure to write a ‘new answer’ choice that allows test takers to say that he doesn’t know the answer.
