Publisher Description

This book contains carefully selected tests and exercises designed to identify and familiarise you with the skills and aptitudes used by employers to recruit jobs, especially for those in the Police Force, the Australian Defense Force, Fire Brigade, Ambulance and the Public Services. This comprehensive guide is based on the latest test formats and has been extensively revised and expanded to eliminate weak areas and provide the practice and confidence-building needed to obtain top scores. The new third edition of this best-selling reference text previously titled Preparing for Career Selection Tests has been revised to more effectively cover the skills needed to succeed at ability tests. The author of this text is an educational consultant and psychologist who has many years experience in teaching numeracy and helping people pass selection tests.
