Numerical Reasoning Test Tips
The follwing are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for your upcoming numerical reasoning test.
Know much time you have
Not all assessment tests are structured the same way, and you should know approximately how much time you can spend answering the questions. Some tests give you plenty of time, while others intentionally don’t give the majority of their test takers enough time to finish the test.
While taking practice tests, you should be mindful of the time limit on your test and the amount of time on average you spend on each question.
Carefully read questions
While time may not be on your side, it is important to not rush reading through written questions. Quite often important details like the units, and the information being asked are critical for answering the question correctly.
You may not have enough time to re-read questions multiple times, but you should try to find the happy medium where you are mentally absorbing everything you need to answer the question.
Use common sense to weed out options
Before working out problems, be sure to read through the list of answers. Quite often you may be able to automatically weed out one or two of the available answers to the question. This may make solving the problem much easier, or save you some valuable time.
Use your own calculator
Assuming that calculators are allowed on your numerical reasoning test, make sure you use a calculator that you are familiar with. Don’t borrow your friend’s at the last minute – you don’t know the last time the batteries were changed, it may have functioning issues that you are unaware of, and you may be unfamiliar with the location of buttons.
Use the same calculator that you have been using to take practice tests leading up to the official test.
If you can’t use a calculator, use paper
Unless you’re the lucky few who can solve complicated math problems in their head, you will need to work out some numerical reasoning problems on scrap paper.
Use paper while taking practice tests and keep in mind how much you time you spend writing out problems. If time is a big factor, see if there are any unnecessary steps you can avoid while writing out problems that may save you a few precious seconds.
