Numerical Reasoning Test
About the test
The Numerical Reasoning test assesses candidates' ability to understand and reason about numerical information.
It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good candidate for an office-based job should have a high level of numerical ability, and be able to apply this ability to quickly read numerical information (numbers, tables, and charts), understand them, and take action on them.
This test requires candidates to demonstrate an understanding of numerical information presented in the forms of text, tables, and charts as well as forming relations between them to solve a problem.

What others say
Simple, straight-forward technical testing
TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
