Congratulations! You’re about to land the job of your dreams! Unfortunately, you’ve suddenly been asked to take the CCAT pre-employment test.Even if you opt to take the CCAT online, the Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test is just that HARD. The sad part is: most people fail. But here at Prepterminal, we can help you pass. Try out our free CCAT Practice Tests now.

The CCAT pre-employment exam measures your problem-solving, learning, aptitude, and critical abilities. The questions are intentionally challenging to observe how you work under pressure. The test is to be completed within 15 minutes, consisting of fifty questions of varying difficulty.The principal problem is the limited time-scale – you have around twenty seconds to read, digest, and answer each question. This is where most people who sit a CCAT exam falter. In fact, only around 20% of test takers pass the CCAT exam. But: There’s a technique for passing such challenging tests. And PrepTerminal knows the secrets. Be one of the 20% with PrepTerminal – Our proven approach will help you prepare for your CCAT test.

It sounds so obvious, but the majority of incorrect answers during a CCAT sample test occur because people misread the instructions. CCAT practice starts with the question: make sure that you fully digest what is being asked of you. You’re not penalised for incorrect answers, so if you find that you’re struggling with a question, take an educated guess, and move on swiftly Our CCAT practice tests will help you prepare.

The CCAT test challenges every part of the brain – but very few of us are great at everything. Somebody with a mathematical mind may be able to define the world in terms of numbers and equations, but they might not necessarily be able to express themselves in words. You could say the same about those with verbal strengths – verbal communicators might not be great mathematicians.You can’t be good at everything, so success in the CCAT exam is about recognising your strengths. Few employers expect perfection in all quarters. You have just fifteen minutes to answer fifty questions, so it’s wise to recognise those questions that might require a quick, educated guess. Focus your attention on the problems that you can answer.

Time is against you during the CCAT test. Which is why it’s so important to explore our CCAT Practice Tests and video tutorials. To answer fifty questions in fifteen minutes, it leaves you with twenty seconds per question. You don’t need to complete the test to pass. But you do need to allocate your time to ensure that you focus on your strengths. Our video tutorials will help you practice methods to overcome this stringent time limitation. Remember: practice makes perfect. Our selection of CCAT Sample Tests and structured practice opportunities will get you ready for the big day.

There are other CCAT preparation organisations out there. You’ve probably found them. We’re glad you’re still here with us now. Our approach to passing the CCAT is unique. Our courses are:

**Video-Based –**visual learning that guides you through the tips**Structured and Modular –**based on an explicit, progressive curriculum**Friendly and Accessible –**allowing you to learn and practice at your own rate

We offer full-length CCAT practice tests, helping you understand the structure of questioning. Practice makes perfect. Very few of us are capable of passing CCAT without preparation, training, and experience of CCAT sample tests. We’ll walk you through the process; helping you to:

- Stay calm under pressure
- Manage your time
- Recognise the type of questions you should focus on

Our CCAT Sample Test and CCAT Practice Tests will give you a good idea of the types of questions you’re likely to be asked. The test aims to assess your:

- Verbal aptitude
- Mathematical & Logical aptitude
- Spatial Reasoning

Potential employers want to understand how you communicate. They might be looking for people who can bring teams together or somebody who can express themselves clearly when under pressure. The verbal questioning elements within the CCAT test helps employers understand your grasp of language. They might want to know that you can choose your words wisely in an email with co-workers or customers. Your answers indicate whether you might give an excellent presentation, or whether you’re likely to have a helpful telephone manner. The CCAT exam uses verbal questions to evaluate how accurately you can ascertain a word’s exact meaning and how words might relate to each other.

Sample Question: Which THREE of the following words have similar meaning?

- Rise
- Alleviate
- Elevate
- Uphold
- Lift

Correct answers: A, C, and E

Math is more than adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. It’s also about problem-solving and algebraic application to compute complex equations quickly and accurately. Numerical reasoning and your ability to handle numbers demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving. You might think that math is not your strength. However, CCAT test questions often relate to the types of real-world equations you’re likely to experience during a simple shopping trip. Quickly working out a percentage reduction on a sales item; calculating a tip for the waiting staff; dividing your percentage of the bill: it’s all valuable math skills.

Sample Question: Dr. Ben had 22 patients on Monday. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, he met with 20, 19, 21,18 respectively. What was his daily average number of appointments for the week?

- 19.0
- 20.2
- 19.5
- 20.5
- 20.0

Correct answer: E

Spatial Reasoning questions often appear in IQ tests. While they might seem completely irrelevant, what they’re really testing is your ability to learn: to recognise patterns and to identify solutions. Most jobs require a degree of problem-solving and critical thinking – and often those aptitudes are called upon under pressure. You might be expected to make swift decisions based on complex or incomplete variables; spatial awareness helps to assess how you’re likely to perform under those circumstances. Sample Question:

After folding these squares into a closed cube, which shaded corner would touch corner “X”?

Correct answer: D

We offer full-length CCAT exam simulations; giving you the opportunity to practice reading, comprehending, and solving the types of questions you’re going to face.

Hi, and welcome to the Rapid CCAT Mastery Course. In the following thirteen modules, you’ll learn the test-taking techniques we’ve developed over years of carefully studying the CCAT test. These strategies will help you instantly eliminate wrong answers, quickly identify patterns, and effectively manage your time so you can score as high as you possibly can.

In the following module, we're going to discuss the contents of the test and structure of the course. We'll explain more about why we created this course, what makes it unique, and how best to study from it. Then, we'll finish up with some of our best test-taking tips to get you started on the right foot.

Take your time while going through the modules. There’s a lot of information here for you, and we want to make sure you absorb it all. So, feel free to pause these videos at any point.

Last but not least, we’re really happy to see you here, and we hope you enjoy the course. Best of luck!

The questions on the CCAT are deceptively easy. If you took the sample test, you might have been fooled into believing that the test is a cake-walk. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. If time were no factor, then everyone would receive a good grade.

However, that’s not the case.

75% of test-takers receive a 27 or lower meaning that out of 50 questions, they’re only able to answer slightly more than half. In fact, only 3-4% of applicants even finish the questions at all. Even for engineers, the average score is only about 30 meaning you can skip 15 questions entirely and still be in the top 5% of test-takers.

The CCAT is designed to test your ability to think abstractly and work efficiently under pressure. With a total of 50 questions and only fifteen minutes, you’ll have about 18 seconds on average to both read and solve each question. That means that every single minute on the test is worth at least four points.

All questions are weighted equally, and the test neither increases in difficulty nor adapts to right or wrong answers. You won't earn extra points for answering complex spatial-reasoning questions or multi-step algebraic equations. Plus, your score is not segmented by subject, so your report won't show your results separately for numerical reasoning and verbal literacy.

Because you’ll need to judiciously skip time-consuming questions, even one wrong answer could make a huge impact on your overall score. After all, on the CCAT, *every* point counts. That's why, when answering the questions, you have to think critically. Succeeding is less about how much you know, and far more about your capacity to work efficiently and intelligently.

By following the guidelines that we layout for you, you'll be able to easily weave your way through the test skipping and guessing strategically to a higher score. You'll know how test-takers design the test, and when test-day comes, you'll be more than prepared.

**Why We Created This Course:**

The CCAT is far more difficult than it seems. We found that too many hardworking, talented individuals were turned away from jobs they were otherwise qualified for just because their test scores were simply too low.

While the CCAT can be useful as a metric, many highly competent individuals fail the test just because they’re not familiar with the structure.

We created this course for busy people like you who need to prepare for the test as quickly as possible. Maybe you’ve been out of school for a few years, or maybe you’re just nervous—and rightly so. In any case, we wanted to give promising candidates the tools they needed to grapple with this particularly tricky psychometric test.

While the CCAT *is* difficult, anyone can succeed if they’re armed with a proven test-taking strategy and well-thought-out tactics for the CCAT’s 24 different kinds of questions. We feel that no one should be turned away from their dream job or school just because they didn't know what to expect from a standardized test.

**Why This Course is Unique:**

This is one of the only online courses devoted solely to the CCAT test. Far more than a cursory review, our preparation modules are laser-focused on the skills you need to succeed. Free of fluff, extraneous tips, and general nonsense, our resources are not only incredibly comprehensive but also extremely practical.

Our goal in this course is not to teach you basic mathematics. You can find numerical reasoning help anywhere. Chances are though, you probably already know everything you’ll need for the test. As we mentioned before, the questions on the test are not all that difficult.

In this course, we explain exactly how to approach every one of the 24 different question types within the given time limit. Our step-by-step video tutorials show you the shortcuts you should be using at every turn.

With only a few days' warning, you won't have a lot of time to prepare before the test. We know your time is limited, so we didn't want you to have to spend hours reviewing irrelevant formulas. That's why we created a compact course with only the essential information you'll need to know.

Last but not least, written by our psychometric professionals, the videos and questions you find in this course are representative of the real test. Not only do our experts take the CCAT regularly, but we also elicit feedback from former students so we know our material is highly accurate and always current.

On average, our students improve their score by 10 points using our techniques and practice questions. Designed with the busy professional in mind, our course will help you get to the heart of each concept as quickly as possible.

**Course Curriculum**

Our course curriculum is divided into five different sections.

As this test bears a lot of similarities to the Wonderlic test, you will notice that a number of modules are from a course on the Wonderlic. These have been selected and tailored to fit the specifications of the CCAT course, so the content remains completely appropriate for this test.

**How Best to Study:**

Go through the course curriculum as it was designed starting with the diagnostic test and ending with the practice tests. Make sure that you watch each video at least twice. While it may seem unnecessary at times, we want to make sure that you fully absorb the material so you can implement it later on. Trust us on this one. Repetition is the key to mastery. If you want to reprogram your brain to rapidly speed through tricky questions, you’ll need to give it time to adjust.

**General Test-Taking Strategy:**

Only attempt questions you can solve in fifteen seconds.

As you go through the CCAT test, make sure you're only answering questions you know you can solve within 15 seconds or less. If for *any *reason you can't find a clear path to the solution after ten seconds or so, eliminate any wrong answer and make your best guess.

Don't insist on solving these questions for any reason even if you feel as if you're almost there. Too many bright individuals make this mistake and waste precious moments trying to prove they're competent. In the extra 30 seconds, you spend solving 3-4 difficult questions, you could easily earn 4-5 easy points. Plus, your attention will wander and your confidence will drop while you're struggling with a problem you didn't even need to solve in the first place.

Remember, you can completely ignore 20 questions and still receive an above-average grade, so don't hesitate to skip difficult problems. Statistically, by guessing on 15 questions can raise your score 3-4 points.

**Never leave an answer blank.** The CCAT does not deduct points for incorrect answers, so make sure to fill in an answer for every single question. If you leave a question blank, there’s no chance you’ll earn any points, but you have a 20% chance of answering correctly just by guessing at random. Plus, with each answer you eliminate, you can raise your score by 20%, drastically increasing your chance of earning an extra point. While you’re welcome to mark the number of difficult questions on your piece of scrap paper, in all likelihood, you won’t have time to return to them. ‘

**Use your scrap paper wisely.** You're allowed one sheet of scrap paper on the CCAT to use as you'd like. While you will need to use the scrap paper here and there to solve various algebraic equations, you should try to avoid using the scrap paper whenever possible. During the course, we will show you exactly which three question types require the use of scrap paper.

**Don’t look at the clock too frequently.** The clock is there to help you track your time, but if you glance up too frequently, you'll lose your concentration. Focus on the question at hand at using the clock to help you determine whether or not to skip a question. However, make sure that you look back up at the clock again during the last minute of the test to make sure you can fill in any unanswered questions before time runs out.

**Recap**:

The CCAT is designed to test your ability to think critically and creatively under pressure, but most people struggle because they’re just not prepared. With only 12 minutes to answer 50 questions, you’re going to have to be very judicious with your use of time. Even if you know how to solve a difficult, multi-step question, you should skip it and make an educated guess. Since all questions are weighted equally, you’re better off strategically skipping around to collect easy points.

Now go on to the next module to start studying the CCAT question types in detail.

Math questions are intimidating for many test-takers, as doing calculations under pressure is often confusing and stressful. Psychometric test writers know this and write the questions accordingly. A very important point about the CCAT numerical tests is that you are not allowed to use a calculator. This means that calculations are straightforward and can either be done mentally or, by hand, quickly on paper. Usually, there is a simple path for the solution that can be easily recognized by test takers with strong numerical and logical capabilities. The good news is that by becoming familiar with the types of questions, learning the best tactic for each type and exercising it, you can improve your performance dramatically and excel with these questions on the CCAT test. Math questions are a big part of the CCAT test and this course covers all numerical subjects. Because of their great importance, you will also find separate modules for averages and percentages questions. In both parts of this module, you will get acquainted with all types of numerical reasoning questions on the CCAT test. In the second part, you will also learn how to immediately recognize classic time trap questions you will need to guess and skip. Yes, you read it right, there are questions that you will need to skip since they are too long to solve on the CCAT test. They are there just for wasting your time, and you should avoid that by all means. Feel free to read these explanations or watch the video version of this guide as many times as needed.**Dave is 15 years old and his uncle Rob is three times as old. When Dave will be 32 years old, his uncle Rob will be __?__ ****The difference between them will always be 30 years.** When Dave will be 32 years old, his uncle Rob will be 62 because 32+30=62. Remember 1. First, determine the age difference 2. then add the difference to the new age given in the question. **“Ice Cream Factories”** Two ice cream factories manufactured 88,000 pounds of ice cream in a month. If factory A manufactured 10 times as many pounds as factory B then how many pounds of ice cream did factory A manufacture? **Pay attention to the question:** In this case, the question is about factory A with a multiplier of 10; therefore, factory A manufactured 80,000 pounds of ice cream and if the question was about factory B, then the answer would, of course, be 8,000 pounds. Often, this would be one of the traps in the answers, so pay attention here and don't miss that easy point as some test takers do. **“Profit Chairs”** A furniture store bought $3,200 worth of chairs from a wholesale distributor. The store sold the chairs for $ 4,100, making a profit of $150 per chair. How many chairs were there? **number of items**: Subtract the wholesale cost of merchandise from the total income that the store made from reselling the merchandise: $4,100 - $3,200 = $900 Then divide it by the profit per unit. $900/150 = 6 There were 6 chairs. You can also be asked to calculate the profit per unit, as in this example: **“Organic Profits”** An organic products store bought 120 lb of organic apples from a local farmer for $1,200. The store sold the apples for $ 1,680. What was the profit per 1 lb of organic apples? **Read this guide as many times as needed and then solve the exercise questions on this module. **
