Talent Q Elements Logical Test Tips

1Read the questions carefully

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.

2Follow the instructions

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.

4Work out your answer first

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.

    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.

    Interesting

    Cool

    I found some of the patterns challenging at first but I do love to solve these little puzzles and recognize the patterns within

    Take one peice at a time

    each task was a test to see if you could follow the pattern, some were difficult but it was a nice brain teaser.

    Quick access to test, without any unnecessary sale propositions

    I should not have to create an account to just take a sample test. I am happy to make an account once I take 1 or 2 tests and see whether I want to create an account

    Good prep for recruitment test

    I liked that I could skip a question and come back to it if I found it difficult under the time limit

    August 22, 2023

    Tricky: Thinking out of the box is key

    I like that it is a simple test but if you analyze too much you might get the answers wrong, I kind of felt like I didn’t understand what was going on until the 3rd question.

  • United States of America

    August 21, 2023

    Challenging but fun

    I love these tests, not too difficult but hard enough to be able to work through to get your answer,
