Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eight out of ten FTSE 100 companies use tests, mainly when recruiting managers and graduates, and research by the Test Agency show use is increasing. So get used to them and use them to your advantage." The Daily Mail "For a would-be job applicant...a sound investment of both their time and money: Without doubt, will help to remove much of the fear and mystique surrounding the often dreaded words: psychometric assessment." Newscheck "The final chapter, devoted to interpretation of test scores, may help anyone wanting a detailed analysis of a personal psychometric profile." ISCO Careerscope

First things first: I emphatically do not recommend buying this book on Kindle. The price for a paperback version is about the same as for the Kindle version. Given the difficulty of handling the Kindle version (flipping back through for answers, etc), it would actually be worth paying up to 50% more just to have it in a more convenient format.

The second question that I have of the book is that the author spends a whole chapter on Personality Testing-- but if the purpose of this test is to get a taste of what an actual IQ test would be like, then what is the point of giving us something where there are no right or wrong answers?

The third thing that comes up is: Some of these questions were so easy, I can't imagine that someone would include them on a standard IQ test. Some of these things were from 9th grade geometry. There are only two general IQ tests and it is not clear if they are like what we would see if we went in to actually take a test.

The fourth problem is that his verbal analogies test......well, I am not sure how much of a basis it had in reality. A lot of his words, when I checked them again in the dictionary didn't mean what he thought they meant. And perhaps there are some differences in English usage between the English and the Americans that account for this, and in that case that's another thing of which to be careful when using this book for practice.

A lot of the problems were actually recycled from Ultimate IQ Tests: The Biggest Ever IQ Test Book (Ultimate Series).

It seems that there were a couple of mistakes in the problems (i.

I bought this book for an upcoming interview where the company is notorious for given psychometric exams to their applicants. It is well worth the money for its content and variety.
I must admit though, the tests given in this workbook sure make you feel stupid when you wrack your brain trying to solve a problem and find out the answer when analyzing your results. Above all a very good book and I plan on buying more of these books from the same author.

As a (now retired) teacher, I found Philip Carter's books valuable tools to keeping the kids (and me) sharp. A page a day for the kids before class got started was a popular beginning to each day. Now, without the students, I still have the books. Carter is not perfect, and once in a rare while, there is an error, or a problem not comprehensible to American kids versus British or Canadian kids. But hey, who cares! They learn a little something about a larger world.

I bought this book to improve and practice my spatial intelligence/visualization. Each test has test taking tips. Worthwhile to me!
