When it comes to selection tests, it's easy to under perform simply by being unprepared. Your CV has shown that you're qualified, your interview technique is impressive, but are you ready for selection tests, where employers and recruiters put you on the spot to expose any strengths or weaknesses that they might previously have missed. All manner of tests can be used to measure your IQ, skills, personality, style and attitude. From numerical and verbal reasoning tests to questionnaires and office simulations, from psychometric testing to testing canters - knowing what to expect and how to work through them will keep you ahead of the rest. Familiarize yourself with the most common types of tests used and learn how to prepare for them.

Read through real-life examples and test yourself on sample tests from recruitment agencies. Discover what they're looking for in your results and how to constructively analyze your own performance. Whether you're aiming at the big graduate recruiters, an internal promotion, a mid-career job move, or even change of profession, learn how to expect the unexpected and be prepared to outshine the competition. Don't be good, be brilliant. Selection tests are very common these days and are often used after interviews to identify weaknesses and strengths. Susan Hodgson offers guidance on how to prepare for them and explains in detail why they are conducted by so many modern recruiters.
