    DescriptionSelection tests represent one of the greatest obstacles facing applicants for jobs, courses and apprenticeships: as a technician, in the building trades, construction industry, mechanical or electrical engineering. Many candidates do not pass such tests, or fail to show their true potential, due to nervousness, lack of practice, or lack of technique. This fully revised and expanded second edition will be invaluable to anyone faced with a selection test for a role in engineering or the construction industry. Based on real life preparation programmes devised by the authors, it contains reliable advice on the most common types of technical tests, why they are used and how to prepare for them, plus a dictionary of essential terms that any candidate will encounter. There are hundreds of practice questions with answers and explanations, so that applicants can assess their performance, boost their confidence and learn to cope with anxiety. The practice material includes verbal and numerical psychometric test questions, plus tests of spatial reasoning, fault diagnosis, and accuracy. Candidates can actually improve their scores through preparation, and "How to Pass Technical Selection Tests" provides all the expert advice and practice material needed.
