Why should you prepare for the abstract reasoning test?

Solving an abstract reasoning test question which requires you to recognise the rule behind the transformation of shapes in a series, you may feel you are being asked to rely on your ‘intuition’. In fact, there are many models and patterns of transformation rules between shapes, which means that you need to be able to quickly scan your memory to apply a suitable pattern to the specific question based on your previous experience.

As you have add more models and patterns to your memory and as your ability to match the right one to a question increases, so do your chances of succeeding in solving these types of questions. Through completing repetitive exercises and learning transformation principles you will increase the number of models and pattern types you are familiar with. The more you learn and practice, the more you are likely to quickly find a suitable model for a question or recognise a different version of a model.
