Sample Test Preview

[1] Look at the design in the large rectangle while paying attention to the missing square. Which answer choice completes the design?

[2] Look for a relationship between the figures across the rows and down the columns. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the analogous relationship.

[3] Identify the image which completes the pattern by examining how the series of shapes change across the rows and down the columns within the matrix. Where you can most easily visualize the relationship will determine the direction in which you examine the question.


[1] The correct answer is A. Look at the arrow in the top-left corner of the large rectangle. As you move clockwise around the sides of the rectangle, each blue arrow rotates 90 degrees counterclockwise. Rotating the arrow to the right of the empty square 90 degrees counterclockwise will result in a vertical blue arrow pointing downwards. Notice that only part of the arrow is missing. The only answer choice that conforms to these properties is answer choice A.

[2] The correct answer is A. Look at the top row. The left figure, containing a blue square in a yellow background, is identical to the right figure. Look at the middle row. The left figure, containing a white triangle in a blue background, is identical to the right figure. Now, take a look at the bottom row. The figures in the bottom row will adhere to the same relationship. The left figure, a yellow circle in a white background, will be identical to the right figure. The correct answer is answer choice A.

[3] The correct answer is C. Across the rows and down the columns, each row and column contain one hexagon, one diamond, and one trapezoid. Since the bottom row and third column each contain one diamond and a trapezoid, the empty square will contain a hexagon. We can eliminate answer choices B and D. Pay attention to the color scheme of the matrix. Every other frame contains an image with a different background color (yellow or white). Since the middle frame in the third column contains a white background and the middle frame in the third row contains a white background, the answer choice will be an image with a yellow background. We are left with answer choice C.

"Overall, I liked the structure of the questions and the option to use tests in timed or step-by-step modes. The drills were helpful and allowed me to assess my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. This product allowed my daughter to go into the test knowing what to expect. It was also great that I just needed to pay one time for a ten month license!"
