How to Pass Verbal Reasoning Tests: Tests Involving Missing Words, Word Links, Word Swap, Hidden Sentences and Verbal Logical Reasoning by Harry Tolley

Increasing numbers of employers are using verbal reasoning tests, which check understanding and use of written English, as part of their recruitment procedures. Lack of word power can stand in the way of you getting a job, gaining promotion or being offered training. Candidates who are familiar with testing and have practised answering the type of questions set, within a fixed time limit, stand a much better chance of success. This new edition will help readers to understand how these tests are set and marked, and gives guidance on preparation for them. It also provides new practice material, with the answers, and information on the following: Why do employers use such tests? How are the tests scored? How can scores be improved? Based on extensive research carried out by the authors, as part of their work preparing candidates for the uniformed services and the Civil Service entrance examinations, this book will prove invaluable to all job applicants.
