These effective test-taking strategy tips and tricks are well worth remembering before you take the actual logical reasoning tests:

1. Practice, practice and practice some more to ace your assessment and aptitude tests!
2. Read the question and instructions properly. Even though this seems logical, often candidates miss out very important information. Multiple-choice tests use so called ‘distractors’ as answer possibilities. These distractors are answers options which are deliberately similar to the right answer; in other words, the answer possibilities are designed to test if you read the question and provided information property.
4. Be prepared with a pen and a piece of paper when doing the online test.
5. It can be useful to develop a (mental) checklist of strategies to solve the questions. Remember the list of possible rules discussed above. This can help you to work more methodically in the test. If needed, write the discovered rules down.
6. Try to focus on one rule at a time.
