At the time high level of competition among job seekers, companies become highly conscious while selecting their employees. After all human resource is the real asset for any organization. Nowadays personal interviews and psychometric tests are not enough to test capabilities of candidates. Candidates may lie about his achievements during interviews but written test checks the authenticity of candidate's skills and mental aptitude. Organisations  generally conducts online multiple choice question (MCQ) exams to test skills of candidates. In most of the exams there are following sections :-

  • Quantitative aptitude
  • Reasoning
  • English
  • General awareness
  • Subject related to job
Now question arise how to prepare for these exams. Tips to prepare for job exams :-

1)      Get study material

Books are important part of preparation of any exam preparation. There are several books available in the market. I am not going to give any affiliate links or promote any publisher as most of the books from reputable publishers are equally good.

In case you don’t have time to read newspapers, install news curation applications on your smartphone. There are numerous applications available on mobile operating system marketplaces. One I personally recommend is Flipboard. Select the topics related to your industry and start following your favorite news websites and blogs.
