From the Author:

I wrote Psychometric Tests for Graduates because I wanted to help young people pass the psychometric tests used these days by virtually every company under the sun to recruit staff. It’s not enough to write a good CV or even give a stunning interview performance – if you want to get a great job you also have to pass the tests. There are loads of psychometric test books around, but I wanted to provide a book full of GENUINE tests. Not what I call the ‘magazine variety’, or tests thought up by psychologists who just fancied getting themselves published, but the real thing. In other words, genuine graduate-level tests actually written by SHL Group plc, the test publisher used by over 90% of all medium to large size companies worldwide. My book is the only one on the market that does this. I also wanted to help people once they’d got throught the initial screening process (the online psychometric tests) and were faced with an assessment centre visit. I’ve done this by providing comprehensive information on all aspects of the testing process, loads of advice and a huge number of practice tests, including all the ability-type tests and also personality questionnaires and the most popular management tests and exercises. A word of advice for current readers – you will probably be able to manage some of the SHL tests fairly easily but find others extremely difficult, even thought they are all graduate-level tests. This is quite normal and simply reflects the fact that we all have different strengths and weaknesses. Personally, I’m pretty hot on the verbal reasoning but absolutely useless at the engineering and fault diagnosis sections – but then I don’t suppose I’ll ever want to apply for a job in engineering or systems design. I hope that apart from preparing you for the real-life psychometric tests, my book will also give you a clearer idea of your own strengths and weaknesses in order to help you plan your own career path. This book is a follow up to my first (and very successful) psychometric test book, Passing Psychometric Tests.
