I just wanted to run you through my recent experience as Darrens message is now 18 months old.
I have applied to a Senior Associate role in Consulting. Having read plenty of the comments on this thread I was concerned about my Verbal and Numerical Reasoning tests, knowing that it was critical to pass these in a high percentile.
After studying some various sites for mock tests, I decided to go for https://greenturn.co.uk/ as they seemed to have a good image and targeted PwC well. I spent £31 on mock tests, and I must say that they are terrible quality, absolutely riddled with spelling and grammatical mistakes. Whilst frustrating, you can look past these, however the Numerical Reasoning tests had axis missing from charts, these missing axis were critical to answering the questions, so therefore you couldn’t.
I don’t want to ramble on forever about Greenturn, and having only used them I cannot recommend who would be better to use, just not them, stay clear.
On a separate note, I have now completed the tests and have been invited to an interview. They won’t ever say what my score is, but I don’t mind, I’m just happy to progress through the process. The tests are both 12 minutes long and in the Verbal Reasoning Test you have about 38 questions to complete, in the Numerical Reasoning you have about 45 questions. This doesn’t allow you to switch off, you have to be completely focused. They do say that nobody does them all, but naturally they want you to push yourself (and stay accurate).
My advise is to practice, practice and practice. The more familiar you are with the test, the less you freak out when there is a real time restriction applied. Oh, and make sure you have a calculator for the Numerical test, but don’t feel you have to use it in every question!
