Just wanted to pass on my thanks to you. You were a big help in preparing me for my aptitude Psyche tests with Rail Car Driver in Perth. I have passed and am now in the pool waiting impatiently for a training date. All the tests i did were a great help too. Many thanks, especially to Daniel!

I bought ACER’s book for Vic Police but it did not help me. Your site was great as I could learn what i did wrong and how to answer the aptitude test questions correctly. Without your help I would have failed the ACER tests again.

I recently had a one-on-one coaching session with one of your senior psychometric test trainer. My time with trainer was worth every penny. He shared really clever strategies to prepare for the aptitude tests and helped me through some of the reasoning problems. I highly recommend this service and in particular the face-to-face coaching

G’day! I wanted to give you guys some feedback on the aptitude practice tests. What an awesome preparation, I do not regret buying it for one second. Thanks to your courses and tests I scored very highly on the aptitude test and qualified for every single ADF officer position including the one I was aiming for (Air Force Pilot!). I even told the recruitment officer about it and she said she would share it with other candidates! No hesitations from me to recommend this to other people. 10/10.

Free Abstract aptitude test. Free Logical reasoning test. Free Inductive reasoning test. Free Hudson abstract reasoning test. Free practice aptitude test examples

Our free abstract reasoning tests are designed to help you understand and practise the types of questions used in the real test you will sit for your prospective employer. In contrast to test questions tailored to the level of difficulty and complexity required for a specific job, our free abstract test questions are targeted to a general job.

On completing each test, you will immediately receive a full test report that includes your total score, a list of correct and incorrect test answers, and detailed explanations of the correct answers to each question.

Our Abstract aptitude practice tests are job specific, with a pool of more than 600 questions for each job category including detailed answer explanations for all test questions. These are designed to ensure that you are fully equipped to successfully complete your real abstract, logical or conceptual reasoning tests. To take our free abstract or logical aptitude tests, please scroll to the bottom of the page.

Free example of an abstract or inductive aptitude test question:

What is the next shape?

To answer this abstract or inductive reasoning test question, we need to first identify the patterns and logical rules that are relevant to the group of shapes in the test question. In this series, there are two logical rules moving left to right. The first is that all the inner shapes move one place anticlockwise at each step. The second rule is that, at every step, the triangle alternates with a black square. At step five, there is a triangle at the top – therefore, at the next step, it will move anticlockwise into the left place and become a black square. 

Another free example aptitude test - abstract reasoning test question,  is one that is used by companies such as Hudson and we prepare you for  it. In this free example aptitude test you need to find what specific buttons do to a group of shapes in the question line based on several example lines in the Base Screen box. Once you find what the buttons do your then can find what the correct final figure is in the question line. Let's examine the following abstract test example: 

In this abstract test question you need to find what buttons 1, 3 and 5 do.

From the first line, we see that the original figure (the three shapes to the left) goes through two transformations to form the figure on the right: (i) a change in the shapes (square to circle, or circle to square); and (ii) a change in colours (black to white, or vice versa). Two buttons are active in this line (1 and 2); however, we still don’t know which one changes the shape, or which one changes the colour.

The second line also shows a figure that swaps the colour of its three shapes, but there is no change in those shapes. This time, buttons 2, 3 and 4 are ‘active’ – so, button 2 (the only common ‘active’ button with line 1) must be the one that swaps colours; and we can now deduce that it is button 1 that changes (or toggles) the shapes. Buttons 3 and 4 must, then, be the ones that modify the horizontal and vertical lines, so we will need to refer to the third line to work out their individual functions.

In line three, because buttons 1 and 2 are ‘inactive’, we know that there will be no transformation of colour or shape.  Buttons 4 and 5 are ‘active’, and we can see that the right figure has been made smaller and a vertical line removed. Line 3 shares only one active button with line 2 (i.e. button 4), and there is only one common transformation between these lines: the vertical line has been switched ‘on’ or ‘off’. Therefore, button 4 is a vertical line toggle switch, which means (from the previous line) that button 3 must be the on/off toggle for horizontal lines. Button 5, therefore, can only be for changing (or toggling) the size of the shapes in the figure (from big to small, or vice versa).

We can now summarise the button functions thus:

  • Button 1 – toggles the shapes within the figure (squares to circles, and vice versa)
  • Button 3 – toggles the horizontal lines on or off
  • Button 5 – toggles the size (big or small) of the shapes within the figure.

Now, we can apply those button functions to our question line:

  • Button 1 – will change the figure to a circle and a square.
  • Button 3 – will add a horizontal line to all shapes in the figure.
  • Button 5 – will toggle the shape sizes – the first from big to small, and the second from small to big.

The corrrect answer is:

Remember: don't waste time practising abstract or inductive reasoning test questions styles that you will not have in your real abstract or inductive aptitude test.

Free example of a verbal aptitude test question:

Please read the following passage and answer the question at the end of the passage:

Dear Employee:

You have completed another year with the company, and you have continued to do a very good job overall. Your punctuality, professional demeanour, and attention to detail all continue to be at a very high level.

There are, however, a few aspects of your job performance that need improvement. First, as a regular daily occurrence at practices, you often fail to gather the balls and put them back on their racks in a timely enough fashion; our players want those balls back on the racks as soon as possible so that they can continue practicing without delays and without losing their rhythm. Second, water needs to be available to any player at any time and, occasionally, you have been slow to get water to the players as soon as they come off the court. Be sure to have the water ready for a player as soon as it is needed. Finally, you should always be available to immediately retrieve balls that bounce away from the court. Recently, after one player shot an air-ball, you didn’t retrieve the ball until after free-throw shooting drills had begun. Please make a point to retrieve balls as quickly as possible.

Question:

The employee has done a great job in the past year in terms of making water available.

Based on the passage, is this statement:

True

False

or Can't say?

To answer this question, we need to read the passage. The report’s second point states that the employee needs to do a better job in water availability. Therefore, the correct answer is 'False'.

Free example of a deuctive reasoning test question:

Which two statements together prove that Tim has a red car?

A. Gil likes Tim's car colour

B. Tim likes fast cars

C. Gil has a fast car

D. Gil likes only red cars

E. Tim's car is not silver

To answer this verbal test question, we need to first examine what each statement says. If we take statement A ‘Gil likes Tim’s car colour’ and combine it with statement D ‘Gil likes only red cars’ then those alone prove that Tim has a red car. The logic is that if Gil likes only red cars (D) and he likes Tim’s car colour (A) then Tim’s car must be red.

Remember: don't waste time practising verbal or deductive reasoning test questions styles that you will not have in your real aptitude test.

Free example of a numerical aptitude test question:

 

What is the ratio of the differences in actual sales to target sales in Thailand and Italy during the fourth quarter?

To answer this test question, we need to review the information provided in the table. According to the table, Thailand’s fourth-quarter sales target was 550, but actual sales were: 205 + 105 + 260 = 570. This is a difference of 20 (570 – 550). Italy’s target was 600 sales, but actual sales were: 125 + 250 + 240 = 615. The difference here was 15 (615 – 600). Therefore, the Thailand to Italy ratio of differences is 20:15 = 4:3.
