CFAT Practice Test Questions and Tutorials

Verbal Skills

First, lets look at what verbal skills are. Verbal skills on 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 CFAT has 15 verbal skills questions to be completed in 5 minutes.

Problem Solving

The CFAT has three different types of problem solving questions, word problems, sequences and IQ type questions.

Spatial Ability (Visual Acuity)

The Spacial Ability section has three types of questions, all of which are graphical.  One you are given a shape and you must choose what shape is possible if folded, or looped and joined.  Another type is you are given a shape and you must choose the same shape rotated.  Another type is you are given a 2-dimensional shape and asked to find same shape when folded into a 3-dimensional shape.

While the book provides useful tips in order to succeed in the CFAT, the title of the book is perhaps overrated because it provides the same type of practice as other guides involving spacial ability, vocabulary and mathematics. However, the book does mention that what you will find in it won't exactly be the same stuff as on the exam, but any manual that includes guidance for any aptitude tests will help you just as much for the CFAT. It will give you an idea of what you shall expect during the test. Good luck. Rating: 5 / 5
