VERBAL REASONING TESTS BOOK

228-page Verbal Reasoning Tests book!
Brand new for 2012… contains over 200 pages of expert guidance, tuition and verbal reasoning test questions.

 

Verbal reasoning tests are used widely by employers during assessment centres in order to select the right person(s) for the job. They are particularly common during selection processes for careers that require an ability to communicate both verbally and in written format with customers or clients.

There is a very strong possibility that you will encounter verbal reasoning test questions during your assessment, therefore, it is crucial that you prepare yourself fully in the weeks and days building up to the test.

This guide has been awarded our 5 Star Rating Award

This comprehensive 200 page workbook is packed full of sample verbal reasoning test questions that are guaranteed to help you score high in your assessment.

 

Let’s take a look at a sample verbal reasoning test question:

Verbal Reasoning Test Question 1

Read the following text before answering the questions as either TRUE, FALSE or CANNOT SAY from the information given.

Basic holiday rights for employeesThere is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this. All employees are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid leave per year. Those employees who work for five days a week are entitled to 28 days per year annual leave (capped at a statutory maximum of 28 days for all working patterns).Employees who work part-time are entitled to the same level of holiday pro rata (5.6 times your normal working week) e.g. 16.8 days for someone working three days a week). All employees will start building up holiday entitlement as soon as they start work with the employer.The employer has the right to control when you take your holiday but you must get paid the same level of pay whilst on holiday. When you finish working for an employer you get paid for any holiday you have not taken.

The employer may include bank and public holidays in your minimum entitlement.You continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout any additional maternity/paternity leave and adoption leave.

 1. An employer may not offer you more than the minimum paid holiday.

2. In addition to paternity leave you are entitled to your normal holiday.

3. All employees only start building up holiday leave 5.6 weeks after commencement of employment.

The above sample question consists of a passage of text which relates to basic holiday rights for employees followed by four questions. You have to state whether the questions are either TRUE, FALSE or CANNOT SAY from the information given. The important thing to remember is that you should solely base your answers on the passage of text provided. Let’s break each question down individually:

1. An employer may not offer you more than the minimum paid holiday.

By reading the passage carefully you will note that the following sentence relates to Question 1:

“There is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this.”

We can deduce from the passage that Question 1 is in fact FALSE, simply because an employer may offer more than the minimum paid holiday.

Fortunately for us the first question related to the very first sentence in the passage. However, in the majority of cases this will not be the norm.

2. In addition to paternity leave you are entitled to your normal holiday.

By reading the passage carefully you will note that the following sentence relates to Question 2:

“You continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout any additional maternity/paternity leave and adoption leave.”

We can deduce from the passage that Question 2 is in fact TRUE. An employee is entitled to their holiday leave throughout paternity leave.

I previously stated that my preferred method for answering verbal reasoning questions was to scan the passage searching for keywords or phrases which matched the question. Question 2 is a very good example of how ‘scanning’ the passage can save you time. You will note that the word ‘paternity’ is only used once throughout the entire passage. By scanning the passage quickly in search of specific keywords or phrases you will be able to reach the section of the passage that relates to the question and thus answer the question far quicker than reading the entire passage.

Once again, there is no right or wrong way for answering the questions; choose a method which works for you.

3. All employees only start building up holiday leave 5.6 weeks after commencement of employment.

By reading the passage carefully you will note that the following sentence relates to Question 3:

“All employees will start building up holiday as soon as they start work with the employer.”

We can deduce from the passage that Question 3 is in fact FALSE based on the information provided. An employee starts building up holiday as soon as they start work with the employer, not 5.6 weeks after commencement of employment.

 

How to pass verbal reasoning tests

The majority of candidates who pass their test have a number of common factors. These are as follows:

1. They believe in themselves.

The first factor is self-belief. Regardless of what anyone tells you, you can pass your verbal reasoning test with very high scores. You just need to practise and make sure that you fully understand the questions. Make sure you have the self-belief to pass the tests and fill your mind with positive thoughts.

2. Aim for speed and accuracy.

The second factor is speed and accuracy. In the build up to this type of test the majority of people will only concentrate on answering as many questions as possible in the available time limit. Once they see the clock ticking down they generally panic and guess the final questions. This is all well and good if the test administrator does not deduct marks for incorrect answers. However, during modern day tests the assessor WILL deduct marks for wild guessing.

Be sure to practise both speed and accuracy during your preparation.
