The best preparation for Pearson style tests!

Pearson TalentLens is a major test publisher of assessments and aptitude tests. If you are applying to several jobs, chances are, you will have to take an Pearson aptitude test. Our practice package optimally prepares you for Pearson style tests.

Pearson uses the Differential Ability Test, DAT, to test candidates. Recently Pearson TalentLens has developed the DAT Next Generation. This test is similar to the old DAT but takes less time and covers a few more topics.

Our practice package has lessons, questions, explanations and quizzes to optimally prepare you for such tests.

This is how it works:

  1. After your online order you will receive an email with your login credentials.
  2. Login via “Courses” and access all your practice materials there.
  3. Start practicing immediately after your purchase.
  4. If you have any questions, use our contact form and we will answer as soon as possible.

Overview of our Pearson style practice package

Our Pearson TalentLens style practice package prepares you for both the DAT and DAT Next Generation aptitude tests. Depending on which test you have to take, you can skip parts of the practice material. If you are not sure which test you have to take, contact us, we are happy to look into it for you.

Preparing for Pearson DAT style tests:

The Pearson DAT test consists of:

  1. Abstract reasoning: figure sequences.
  2. Numerical reasoning: numerical ability.
  3. Verbal reasoning: verbal analogies.

Abstract reasoning – figure sequences:

This measures how good you are at completing logical reasoning. The exercises consist of four figures that logically follow each other. On this basis, you must determine what the fifth figure will be. You will see several figures at the same time, each with their own logical connections. If you solve the elements separately, you can always exclude incorrect answers until you choose one correct answer.

Numerical reasoning – numerical ability:

Relatively simple calculations must be solved during the assessment. In general, this is an equation with three parts, one of which is unknown. These can be simple additions, multiplications or variations of fractions. Do not start this part unprepared. Make sure you have refreshed the calculation rules. For example, how to divide by a fraction, or multiply by decimal places.

Verbal reasoning – verbal analogies:

An analogy is a method for establishing relationships between words. Your ability to solve these analogies quickly and properly depends on the degree to which you are able to recognize the relationships between words. Analogies can be divided into a limited number of categories. As soon as you learn to recognize and apply these categories quickly, you will be able to get a good score..

Preparing for DAT Next Generation style tests:

The Pearson DAT Next Generation consists of:

  1. Abstract reasoning – abstract.
  2. Space relations – abstract.
  3. Verbal analogies – verbal.
  4. Numerical calculations – numerical.
  5. Numerical sequences – numerical.

Abstract reasoning/figure sequences

This measures how good you are at completing logical reasoning. The exercises consist of four figures that logically follow each other. On this basis, you must determine what the fifth figure will be. You will see several figures at the same time, each with their own logical connections. If you solve the elements separately, you can always exclude incorrect answers until you choose one correct answer.

Spacial reasoning / cubes

Spacial reasoning, sometimes also known as cubes, are part of abstract reasoning. There are two forms of cubes: folding and turning.

With folding cubes, you must indicate how a cube can be unfolded. For this, you need to be able to convert a three-dimensional image into a two-dimensional image. You will see a cube and a number of unfolded cubes. For the unfolded cubes, you must indicate which an extension of the example can be.

When rotating cubes you get to see a cube and you have to indicate how it can be rotated. You will see a number of answer options. Of these answer options, one is a possible rotation of the example. You must indicate which rotation is possible. It is indicated in advance how often the cube can be rotated and tilted.

Numerical ability

Relatively simple calculations must be solved during the assessment. In general, this is an equation with three parts, one of which is unknown. These can be simple additions, multiplications or variations of fractions. Do not start this part unprepared. Make sure you have refreshed the calculation rules. For example, how to divide by a fraction, or multiply by decimal places.

Numerical sequences

For numerical sequences, you determine which calculations underly the given sequence. Based on the perceived calculations you have to determine the next number in the sequence. This can be tricky, because at first glance, it might seem there are several options. By following the right strategies you can easily solve numerical sequences and avoid common pitfalls.

Verbal analogies

An analogy is a method for establishing relationships between words. Your ability to solve these analogies quickly and properly depends on the degree to which you are able to recognize the relationships between words. Analogies can be divided into a limited number of categories. As soon as you learn to recognize and apply these categories quickly, you will be able to get a good score.

Frequently asked questions

How is the Hellotest practice material developed?

We have been active as assessment trainers since 2012. In the first instance you could only come to us for personal training:

  • one on one training,
  • group training,
  • workshops and training at universities and career fairs.

In 2015 we decided to put our developed training material online so that our candidates could practice after training.
Thanks to our many years of experience as an assessment trainer, we know exactly which variations exist for a component. We have developed questions about these components for each variation.
We have combined that knowledge with the parts that certain agencies require. We have been able to determine which variations are used by which agency. Then you will find the right variations in your training package.

How often can I retake the lessons / quizzes?

You can take our lessons and practice tests as often as you want during your subscription. If you want to retake a lesson or practice test, you can reset the lesson or quiz yourself via a button.

Can I practice with a timer?

All our practice tests are provided with a timer. The duration of the practice tests corresponds to the time that you get on the real test.

Our lessons are not provided with a timer. In this way you can become comfortable with all the questions and take as long as you want.

Where can I use the practice package?

All the training material is available online. So you can use it everywhere, as long as you have a working internet connection.

Our training material can be used on all modern devices (mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop) and in all modern browsers (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc.).

In which languages is the practice material available?

English.

Can I get help if I get stuck with the material?

If you have questions about the exercise material you can always ask them here. We try to get back to you in two business days.

How do I know if I am ready for the assessment?

In our e-learning system, the recommended score is indicated for each practice test. That way you can estimate whether your score is good enough to start the real test.

You can do the practice tests until your score is good enough.

Who are we

Our aim is to help you get your dream job. Aptitude tests are used by most employers nowadays and are a major hurdle to candidates. As many as 50% of the candidates do not pass their aptitude test. We find this unfair.

By preparing for your aptitude test you can easily pass the test. You are not cheating, you are getting prepared. If you have never solved number sequences or never even seen a figure sequence you will not get a high score on your test. You may even fail. By practicing, you will be familiar with such types of questions. Now, you can actually take the test.
