Private employers and public agencies use various mechanical aptitude tests to screen applicants for jobs that range from mechanics and skilled trades apprentices to aerospace engineers and firefighters. These tests often differ in detail but measure similar abilities. This manual presents 18 typical tests that gauge an individual’s mechanical aptitude and spatial ability, with all questions answered and explained. The author also advises on ways to improve mechanical comprehension, gives test-taking tips, and explains how pulleys, levers, and other simple machines work. The eBook is filled with diagrams and illustrations.
This text provides an overview of key principles relating to mechanical, spatial and abstract thought. The aim is to facilitate the following learning outcomes. + Identify individual elements within a group of elements; + Identify a rule connecting a set of figures; + Complete a number of test questions by applying a rule connecting a set of figures; + Apply techniques aimed at increasing the speed at which logical rules are generated (the faster a person generates solutions, the higher the probability of a correct answer—in a given period of time); + Increase the number of elements a person can keep track of in responding to an item (span capacity). Someone with a larger span capacity than someone else can take into account more figures without making errors and hence has a larger probability of a correct answer. Mechanical, Spatial and Abstract Reasoning ability is a key element in identifying aspects of person’s general intelligence. That is why the vast majority of psychometric tests will have a component that relates to abstract and spatial reasoning. This ebook will provide a measure of eductive ability or fluid intelligence which is relatively independent of specific learning acquired in a particular cultural or educational context.

Spatial reasoning tests are widely used during selection processes which require an ability to use practical and visual skills. They are more common in jobs such as engineering and driving roles but are also more and more being utilised on medical and science roles. Spatial reasoning, or ability as it is sometimes called, involves the candidate visualising and then manipulating different complex shapes and patterns. Competence in spatial awareness is said to be mostly inherited; however, tests have proven that your ability in this type of test can be greatly improved with targeted practice. This book will provide you with over 230 pages of sample spatial reasoning test questions and answers to help you prepare thoroughly for the tests.
