Diagrammatic reasoning test guide

Similar to logical reasoning, abstract reasoning and inductive reasoning tests, Diagrammatic reasoning tests are commonly used  to assess candidates applying for a wide range of jobs such as marketing, investment banking, sales etc.

Diagrammatic reasoning tests present questions in the form of diagrams where a number of logical rules apply. Your task is to identify the underlying patterns and rules and use these to select the missing shape from the options provided.

The key to Diagrammatic reasoning tests is logical thinking, and although the level of difficulty and complexity of the diagrammatic reasoning test will vary based on the specific job requirements, it is based on the same ability type. For example, a candidate applying for a job with the police department would take a less complex diagrammatic reasoning test than a candidate applying for a job as a marketing manager.
