#2: When the first numerical reasoning test question appears: READ THE TITLE

You will have to read the title of the graph/chart/table while taking note of the units. Sometimes, figures may be given in millions or thousands.

#4: Slow down:

There’s always a lot going on in a numerical reasoning aptitude test. If you slow down the first time and pay attention to detail, you can avoid calculation errors and having to reread the question or study the chart all over again.

#5: Pace yourself wisely:

To ensure that you score as many points on the exam as possible, use the allotted time wisely. Remember, each question carried equal mark, If you must skip a few questions, make them the ones that would take you longer time to solve, not the ones at the end of the test you simply didn’t get to but could have answered correctly.

#6: Some question would take you time to answer.

Usually if given enough time, almost every candidate taking the test would get all answers correctly. Your ability to turn-in correct answers to as many questions as possible within the allotted time marks the difference between a successful candidate.

#7: Don’t confuse percent and numbers

Many candidates make mistakes on the problem solving test because for example, you may be asked in what year was the greates percentage increase on volume. This cannot be solved by just looking directly at the graph, most times you will need to do some calculation.

#8: Whenever possible, Estimate.

for most numerical problem solving test questions, you might need to work in approximate values, but in doing so you should first consider how close the answer options are.

For example;

A. 24

B. 23

C. 25

D. 22

If the options are as close as written above, it will be best to work in as many decimal values as possible. Standard practice is to work in 2 decimal places.

#9: Do each calculation separately and orderly.

Since a single graph serves 4 different questions. It is better to keep records of questions you have solved earlier. You may need to refer to some values you got earlier. Instead of having to solve the questions all over, it will save you some time to just keep records. Remember, every second counts.
