If you enjoy a particular sport or activity, it's most likely that you are good at it. The same applies to work. If you enjoy your job you will be better motivated and, as a result, perform better. Finding out which is the right job for you, though, is not easy. Career, Aptitude and Selection Tests is designed to help you assess your strengths and weaknesses - in terms of aptitude, motivation, skills and personality - and match them to the type of job or career to which you would best be suited. Giving clear and practical guidance, Jim Barrett shows you how to understand: *what motivates you - what you want to do; *what specific aptitudes you have - what you do best; *your personality - how you do it. By working through the aptitude tests and detailed motivation and personality questionnaires, you can then use the 'Profile Matching' section to see what particular occupation your personal characteristics best match - whether it's bus driver or zoologist!
To measure your competence as well as your potential for achievement, aptitude tests are increasingly used by organisations to select the best staff for their teams and develop those already employed. Ultimate Aptitude Tests, now in its second edition, is the largest and most comprehensive book of its kind, boasting over 1000 realistic practice questions and detailed answers and explanations. Providing essential practice, it includes psychological tests that mirror those you are likely to encounter, including abstract visual tests, verbal and numerical reasoning aptitudes, practical skills and understanding as well as different types of mechanical and spatial tests.
