Numerical Reasoning Free/Great Value Help


#1

Hello guys,

Like many people of the forums I have been struggling with numerical reasoning for a ridiculous amount of time ! I have bought books and done online practice tests but I am still not achieving the necessary percentiles. Does anyone have any recommendations on specific sites, books and practice tests to complete to really see some solid results. For example I have seen people recommend graduate monkey however in order to get the material there is a £30 charge and honestly speaking I would rather not invest in this without having any sort of confirmation that it is worth the money.

Thanks for your help

@mitch_manutd:
I just saw your note. I have tried Graduatemonkey. It is a weird name but their material is pretty good if you are taking an SHL or Kenexa numerical reasoning test. They seem to offer full service pack: ebook, videos and practice tests. I passed couple of my tests recently using their prep packs. One piece of advice: Don’t use books cause their outdated. Online packs like graduatemonkey get updated more frequently. If you think it is expensive why don’t you share the access with a friend who also needs num tut pack? On the downside you have to be online to be able to use any of their material which I don’t see to be a problem for our generation :slight_smile:

try their Free Stuff section first to see if you like graduatemonkey test prep materiel on their webpage. they also have a youtube channel called graduatemonkey where they post free tutorial videos. I hope it is useful.

how about jobtestprep.co.uk? is it a good source to learn from? I think Wikijob advertises them all new words seem to have been tagged with their link (even the graduatemonkey text).

Hi guys, I am new to thse aptitude test stuff. What are the key consideration criteria when purchasing a test prep pack/subscription? They all seem to offer the same thing to me. is graduatemonkey better or worse than jobtestprep on any aspects?


#6

hey guys has anyone tried the site assessment day the numerical reasoning seems very cheap for what you get, is it worth it ?


#9

Yep, that is the right word, “cheap” :slight_smile:


#10

I’m also curious about the quality of graduatemonkey, and I find 30GBP quite an investment, if it was only half…, or if I had a coupon code laying around… anyway is there somebody who can comment on the SHL section of graduatemonkey?


#11

As if Wikijob turns all our comments into affiliate links, ha!

Two that i’ve used before are GraduateReasoningTests which has got 5/6 free tests and Test Partnership.

SHL section of graduatemonkey is brilliant. They have tutorial videos illustrating shortcut solutions/tricks which is a Bonus on top of the Ebook and practice tests. I got 90% using their material!


#13

Looks like graduatemonkey finally reduced their SHL and Kenexa numerical test preparation pack prices to an affordable level. I had emailed them asking to reduce the prices previously so happy to hear they responded to the customer opinion.


#14

Yeah, graduatemonkey also introduced new Logical Reasoning Test pack. It is the one used by both SHL and Kenexa for the non-verbal test (Abstract or Inductive) - based on series of diagrams/shapes/figures. Graduatemonkey’s pack is brilliantly organised by problem types and they provide videos showing how the diagrams/patterns develop. Highly recommended.


#15

Hi Tomas_y1990:
Is the Logical (Abstract) Reasoning test tutorial pack offered by GraduateMonkey the same as Diagrammatical reasoning test?


#16

Does anyone know if PwC is still hiring? Their website does not state clearly :frowning:


#17

Dear wikijobers,

I have a question actually. Has anyone among you passed the application stage recently? I need to know if PwC is still reviewing new applications for internships.

Thanks a bunch!

You get a yield worth your investment capital. So look at the value instead of price when choosing test prep packs.


#19

I recommend graduatemonkey definitely for numerical reasoning test prep because they also have tutorial videos in addition to timed test simulations


#20

yep, graduatemonkey is quite popular among videoholics who can’t or don’t want to read (although they do have ebooks too!).
