Aptitude Test Practice from terrywebbs's blog


Aptitude Test Practice! 

I wasn't practising  when I did mine, so why are they called Aptitude Test Practice? 

Probably out of practice with my English? Probably out of tune with the current Job Seeking Terms too!

I recently had to take an Aptitude Test, not for a job but to get onto the books at an employment agency.

I only did it to prove a point, the point that is we do not need employment agents and are quite able to find a job without such.

The amusing thing about these tests is that it will work for about 90 percent of people, for the other 10 percent it will fail.

I fall into that 10 percent, I am not saying this due to the actual fact I failed quite miserably, far from it.

I failed as I am that 10 percent of people that you can't put into a box and label.

My results show I have very little knowledge of excel and word, yet I am a qualified by experience hardware/software engineer.

My only drawback to these tests is they merely show my recall ability of where stuff is, not whether or not I can actually use the software.

If you were to ask me to explain where the hyphenation tool is I will stumble, however ask me to show you and I would be right there.
