About the Canadian Forces Aptitude Test
Verbal skills in the CFAT are really just another name for vocabulary and analogies. The CFAT has four different types of verbal skills questions: synonyms, where you are required to choose a word with the same meaning, antonyms, where you are required to choose a word with the opposite meaning, and definition questions, where you are required to choose the definition of a given word.
The Problem Solving section has three types of questions, Word Problems and number Sequences
The Spatial Ability section gives graphics of expanded shapes and you must choose what the shape will look like when folded or unfolded. These are quite tricky if you are un-prepared!

I’ve taken the CFAT course recently and I can say for sure that studying with the CFAT app trainer and this website will greatly improve your odds of achieving the necessary score for the trade you want. Understand how to do long division, Multiplication, Subtraction, and Division will help you. I took the test and missed the trade I wanted by 2 points. If you study these points you will surely achieve the trade you’re looking for. Good Luck. J.
