What you need to know about Numerical Reasoning Tests and Numerical Reasoning Questions Powered By Docstoc
					?Many people all around the world are searching for jobs. Many of these people will
apply for jobs that require an aptitude test as part of the job selection process. These
people will likely end up finding themselves taking numerical reasoning tests. These
tests are filled with multiple choice numerical reasoning questions. Numerical
reasoning tests are always strictly timed. It should be noted that you will usually be
allowed to use a calculator unless the numerical reasoning question specifically states
that you are not allowed to use a calculator. When taking numerical reasoning tests,
you will encounter four different types of numerical reasoning questions.

These tests are crucial for individuals who are hoping to be employed for the job that
they are applying for. These tests can make the difference if you are hired or not. You
should answer as quickly but as carefully as possible. Many of these tests will not use
negative marketing. However, accuracy is assessed so it is a bad idea to run through
these numerical reasoning tests answering the numerical reasoning questions without
even thinking about the question. The software that scores these tests are able to tell
you what percentage you got right out of the number of questions that you attempted
to answer.

Speed is very important when taking one of these tests. While the employer that you
are taking the test for will likely lend you a calculator, it is still a good idea to bring
your own calculator that you are familiar with. Make sure that you know where the
buttons are located. You should be able to use the calculator quickly and comfortably
as this will save you a few vital seconds. This could actually give you a slight
advantage over candidates who are ill prepared. This could give you the edge and end
up winning you the job. However, remember that some portion of the test do not
require or allow you to use a calculator.

There are four types of numerical reasoning questions. You will encounter each of
these types of questions when taking numerical reasoning tests. The proportion of
questions that you will be expected to answer will depend on the type of job that you
are applying for. You will need to answer a higher proportion of questions if you are
applying for a job that requires you to work with figures on a day to day basis. Jobs
that deal with buying, selling, processing order, processing invoices, science,
engineering, statistics and numerical analysis of any sort will require you to score
higher. Even jobs that do not require you to work with figures on a daily basis will
probably still want you to score high.

There are four types of numerical reasoning questions that you will encounter when
taking numerical reasoning tests. You will encounter estimation questions which will
require you to make quick estimations. These questions are important when applying
for craft and technical jobs. You will also need to answer data interpretation questions
which will require you to interpret information that is displayed in tables, graphs and
charts. You will also have to answer critical reasoning questions which will require
you to figure out the logic needed to answer the question when a small bit of
information is provided to you. And finally you will need to answer computation
questions which will test your ability to use decimals, ratios, fractions, percentages,
powers and exponents.
