Verbal Reasoning Test Tips

Verbal reasoning test questions can be challenging, but these tips and tricks may help you better understand the questions asked and quickly answer the questions correctly.

Know the Test Provider

The types of verbal reasoning test questions will be different based on the type of test you are taking. Some providers like Wonderlic and PI will feature questions that are similar in structure and difficulty.

Find out the test provider and then look up verbal reasoning sample questions from the provider’s website or from 3rd party sites. If possible take as many practice tests as you can.

Know the Time Limit

Each test provider will have different time limits. In some tests, like the Wonderlic, the time limit is critically important, where you don’t have much time to process the information and answer the question.

Other test providers allow you much more time, and give you the ability to sift through the information in the questions multiple times.

Regardless, it is important to practice with a timer and know approximately how long you have to answer each of the questions. When taking the official test, be sure to manage your time carefully so that you give yourself enough time to complete the test.

Skip Tough Questions

You may come across a few really tough questions. If you can, just skip them with the plan of making them your last questions that you will answer.

Making the tough questions your final questions allows you to hone in and focus 100% on the problems at hand. You also are also able to spend extra amounts of time on these questions, knowing that you have answered all other questions on the test.

Worst case scenario – you run out of time and don’t get around to answering them. You may have answered them wrong anyway.

Practice Practice Practice

The best way to get a sense of the test questions that you will be up against is by taking as many practice tests as you can get your hands on.

Over time, you will get a better sense of the structure of the questions being asked, and how to efficiently gather information from the test questions.
