This book is aimed at all candidates taking European Institution competitions who wish to prepare in the best possible way for the abstract reasoning test.
Abstract reasoning questions take the form of a series of diagrams containing geometric figures that are repeated or modified according to a logical sequence. Candidates have to identify the underlying logic and find the diagram that completes the series.
Abstract reasoning is a difficult test. It requires both logic and speed. To pass this test, candidates must very rapidly find the analogies between shapes and combinations of different shapes. They must also master certain notions of geometry and understand the meaning of symbols within the diagrams.
Passing the abstract reasoning test is above all a question of following the right method and practising. This book will help you to significantly increase your chances of success. It contains:
- a detailed methodology, illustrated by plenty of examples
- 18 tests of 10 questions each, classified according to level of difficulty
- detailed answers to each question.
The questions in this book are similar to those used in the abstract reasoning tests introduced in European civil service competitions in 2010.
