Talent Q Elements Logical Test Tips

It’s important to have a clear understanding of what the question is asking of you. There may be distractors within the data, or multiple-choice answers to throw you off track, and answering incorrectly due to having misinterpreted the question is a common fault.

Clear instructions on how to complete the questions, including the correct way to answer them, will always be provided. Take time to familiarise yourself with this guide before starting any practice questions, so as to avoid errors.

3Practice logic every day

Online practice tests aren’t the only way to sharpen your logical reasoning skills. Activities such as sudoku, chess and crossword puzzles are an interesting and effective way to engage your logical skills.

When assessing the stimulus, try to come to your own conclusion before looking at the multiple-choice selection. If you do not have a reasonably strong idea of what the answer will be, the distractors are likely to influence your reasoning and lead to an incorrect answer.

5Be prepared for any set of questions

Each test is unique and simulated to adapt to your answers as you progress. Just because you have answered with a certain rule, this doesn’t mean it won’t appear again, even in the very next question. Remember, these tests are designed to challenge your mental agility to its capacity, so don’t be put off by intentional tricks.

i think the uniqueness of the shapes define the intelligence in the test.

at first it seemed quite complicated then i think the common sense says that natural intelligence can crack the test.

It was a good test. Great variety of questions.

Some questions were too easy ,while some questions took a little longer to be solved. Overall the test was good. Considerations can be made to make the test a little more tough and challenging

Great service overall

Good question variety - the content of the test and the style differ slightly from the actual Korn Ferry test for which I am preparing.

Fun & challenging!

I enjoyed the variety that this test offered. I would have preferred instant, question-by-question feedback over feedback at the end.

The varying patterns of the figures in each box, and what could be the next chain in that pattern.

I like how the test contained fun and interesting questions that needed logical thinking. However, it is not as complex as one test I answered, so the website should give an option of difficulty in tests.
