This assessment consists of 11 exercises that reveal how you work, think, and understand different types of information and tasks. The assessment is 90-minutes; however, you do not have to complete the entirety in one sitting. You can take a break after any exercise but NOT during the middle. And remember there is no “good” or “bad” performance on aptitudes. The idea is to identify the careers that take advantage of your natural strengths, so just relax and do your best! Try and find a quiet and comfortable place where you won't be distracted and can fully concentrate on the exercises.
