Improve your abstract test score

It is possible to improve your abstract reasoning capabilities in a reasonably short time, despite what some people may believe. To do this you will need to learn a large number of typical, logical rules.  This will mean that when you are faced with an abstract reasoning test question you will be able to quickly identify the relevant rule/s for this series of shapes.

As with most tests you take, the right preparation can improve your abstract reasoning test result. Achieving a significant improvement in a short space of time is unlikely.  However by learning and practising abstract reasoning test strategies, familiarising yourself with a wide range of logical rules that define shape series, and eliminating stress factors you will quickly improve your performance.

The principles behind abstract reasoning questions do not change regularly. Many of these tests have been in use for 10 to 20 years. As a result of this there are a number of quality practice abstract tests available, as well as on-line high-quality abstract reasoning courses. The combination of taking extensive practice tests, with learning strategies and techniques for dealing with the abstract reasoning test from the online course, allows you to prepare for the abstract reasoning test in a quick and effective manner. Read more about how preparation improves psychometric test results.

You will be required to quickly recognise and apply different patterns and logical rules throughout the abstract reasoning test. This is not something you can effectively learn by reading a book, but it is something you can quickly develop through a combination of practice, concentration and knowledge of test-taking strategies. 

If you feel that you are someone who can quickly identify the rules behind how data changes or the commonalities across different pieces of data, we recommend that you take the free abstract reasoning test available on this site.
If you feel that you would benefit from a little training or preparation to give you the edge you will need in the actual test, we recommend that you take our online practice abstract reasoning tests.  You are able to select ones which are appropriate to the organisational level and occupation you have applied for.  Upon completing each test, you will receive a personalised report with your result, plus the list of questions that you correctly answered and the questions you made mistakes in. For these you will be able to read the correct answer and an explanation of the answer for each question. This hands-on preparation will ensure that you improve your ability to tackle abstract reasoning tests.
If you have plenty of time, you can develop your abstract reasoning skills by solving puzzles. But if you don’t have time, and you don’t feel confident about your abstract reasoning skills, we recommend that you begin by taking our online abstract reasoning test course aimed at helping you to pass the abstract reasoning test.
The online course includes:
easy-to-read explanations of the different types of questions appearing in the typical abstract reasoning test,
a step-by-step explanation of how to solve them,
and detailed explanations of the typical, logical rules used to define series of shapes in the abstract test.
This course also includes sample test questions, exercise questions, and detailed explanations of how to answer them. Now you are ready to complete the large number of online abstract reasoning tests available on this site choosing the ones which are appropriate for the job you applied for. This will provide you with an indication of what your relevant areas of strength and weakness, but also the real experience of completing abstract reasoning tests online.
