PEOPLE MANAGEMENT

The use of tests as part of job selection and assessment procedures is now commonplace. Most candidates can expect to face a battery of tests, some that measure ability and also those aimed at identifying a person's aptitude for a particular job. And the more skilled the job, the more advanced or difficult the tests are likely to be.

How to Pass Advanced Aptitude Tests provides both a wealth of practice material to help you to prepare for such tests and guidance to help you manage your career. Aimed primarily at a managerial, professional or graduate level, it also has much to offer the beginner. Topics covered include:

visual logic;

numerical insight;

verbal concepts;

form recognition;

personality assessment;

organizational skills;

career analysis.

Expert advice and an extensive career index to help you to evaluate which career suits you best make this book essential reading for anyone keen to get their career on the right track.
