SHL Assessment Test Prep Course & Practice Questions

  | 88 students enrolled | Last updated 6/2019

SHL is a leading test provider, primarily in the US and UK but also with a significant international presence and accounts for around a quarter of all pre-employment test provision.

CEB SHL tests are notoriously difficult, with an average passing rate of less than 20%. Harsh time restrictions and unfamiliar concepts are responsible for so many candidates being caught unprepared. For candidates required to take this aptitude test, there is very little time given between being asked to take the test and actually sitting it - usually, a candidate has a matter of days to prepare. If you are going to take an SHL assessment test, time is critical.

So you’ve applied for a great job with a renowned company, or perhaps a sponsored internship to see you through your university degree. You’ve got a great education and strong qualifications under your belt. You’ve been asked to take a pre-employment cognitive ability test - piece of cake, right?

Wrong.

One of the most common stumbling blocks encountered by test-takers is that they underestimated the difficulty of this test. The SHL test was designed to be extremely challenging, so that prestigious employers can find the very best candidates.

While the average test-taker stands a chance of less than 20% of passing, our students benefit from a passing rate of 76%. With our Definitive All-Inclusive SHL Crash Course, you can more than triple your shot at success, and at getting your dream job.

Don’t let yourself be caught unprepared for this challenging test. Sign up today for this course, or study the first two modules for free.

Free SHL Practice Test Questions by Categories

The SHL test comes in five primary categories, all of which are covered by our Comprehensive SHL Preparation Course. Here are some free SHL practice test questions from each category:

  • Numerical Reasoning Test Practice

    This covers a range of mathematical topics, assessing the candidate’s ability to deal with medium-to-high complexity questions in a very limited timeframe. In these instances, knowledge of how to use a calculator is extremely important.

  • Verbal Reasoning Test Practice

    This covers a number of topics from conventional logic questions to analogies & antonyms. These questions assess the candidate’s ability to handle tracts of verbal information, as well as to assess competence with the English language.

  • Abstract Reasoning Test Practice

    This covers the figural component of CEB SHL testing, which is in essence an assessment of logical reasoning skills without any language-related barriers. Similar to a culture/language-neutral IQ test, this is an assessment of your logical ability when presented with abstract concepts.

  • Mechanical Reasoning Test Practice

    Mechanical reasoning is concerned with the candidate’s ability to understand and visualise the solutions to mechanical problems. This component is usually administered in the screening process for jobs in mechanics and engineering.

Proven Techniques From SHL Psychometric Prep Experts

In this course, we provide more than sample tests. This course equips you with foolproof tactics to take on the questions presented in CEB SHL tests in order to ensure that you can answer questions accurately and effectively. Most resources found online focus entirely on sample questions, and prepare the test-taker very little for the actual test - after all, conventional schools offer a lesson-based curriculum to study for tests, rather than flooding their students with questions and no explanations.

This course is the foremost resource for those who wish to effectively prepare for their SHL test and secure the position they are applying for, by improving two main factors :

  1. Accuracy - The rate at which you choose the correct answer
  2. Time - The time it takes for you to solve the SHL questions

While your competitors will be worried and unsure of what to expect, you will be calm, cool and collected, knowing exactly what is coming your way and exactly how to handle it. Gain the upper hand in test success and sign up today.

How to approach the behavioural assessment - The SHL behavioural assessment can often be an unknown factor for test-takers. Our SHL personality module covers everything you need to know about this, so you can approach the behavioural assessment with confidence.

SHL Test Passing Rate

The SHL test was not designed to be easy, and that’s why such a large number of employers use it to select the cream of the crop. In fact, SHL aptitude tests are so difficult that the passing rate is under 20%. For every five candidates, only one will pass. This is why it is absolutely vital to ensure that you are properly prepared for this test.
