Preparation Guide for Logical Reasoning Tests

Logical reasoning tests are psychometric measures constructed from abstract symbols or diagrams that require you to spot patterns, codes or rules that transform one item into another. Such measures don’t include verbal or numerical material and there is no specialised knowledge required in order to do well at these assessments. There is a great variety of non-verbal instruments with most popular being inductive tests which are often administered during employee selection.

The most detailed and comprehensive guide about logical reasoning tests frequently used in the scope of psychometric testing. It provides advice about abstract logical tests comprised of inductive series, matrices or diagrammatic flow charts as well as numerical or verbal items composed of number series, arithmetic or word puzzles.

Take this diagnostic test to assess your readiness for real exercise. It consists of non-verbal items and assesses how you can find connections or relationships between shapes and symbols in the sequence. It will be your task to study the images and decide which one out of five choices provided is correct. Attempt to answer every question and do not spend too much time answering any of the series. Try to mark each answer within 30 seconds. At the end you can see answer key showing the correct and incorrect answers, review the explanations and percentile interpretations of your performance.

This test is composed of two sets of non-verbal images where your task will be to find the pattern of sets and decide into which of the sets the test shape would belong. Click on the above link to read full instructions. You will have 6 minutes to complete 12 questions. Do not get stuck on any one question. Usually, if you don’t see the pattern within first 30 seconds it is unlikely that you will spot it with more time hence move on. At the end you can study solutions for the items you answered incorrectly, compare your answers and view your raw score as well as percentile interpretations.


objectives Required competencies
Most of the challenges in logical tests are related to inductive and deductive reasoning and thus you need to develop skills that will enable you to inspect, analyse and spot similarities and differences between abstract patterns. You will have to learn how to infer, deduct and draw particular conclusions beyond the information given. Click on the above link to learn more about skills, abilities or competencies required to attain high score.


improvement How to improve
Skills that will enable you to do well can be improved and polished with practice. Continued preparation over a period of time will enable you to understand the thinking of the test developers and thus you will be half way to spotting the patterns that will lead you to the correct answers. Work through the questions that you are likely to face in logical reasoning tests, inspect each sequence carefully and make sure that you understand the reason why shapes or symbols move in one direction or the other. Examine the series closely and eliminate the least likely answers. Read more on how to improve your performance from the above section.
