go to JobTestPrep.Practising full-length tests will help you get used to the time limit and will make the real exam seem less intimidating on the day of the real test.

This simulation contains 30-questions, and you have 9-minutes to try to answer all of them. The style of the questions and their level corresponds exactly to the original CCAT that you will need to pass for your recruitment. It is extremely important that you become acquainted with the different question types presented and explained in this simulation, as they are very similar to the real ones.

## Explanations

1. A cookbook costs $9.50, so 3 cookbooks cost $28.50.

2. By purchasing 8 scoops of ice cream in total, Martin pays only the price equivalent to 6 scoops. So, he pays 6 times $1.50, which equals to $9.

3. The smallest value is 0.04.

4. The greatest value is 1.8.

5. 20% of 100 equals 20.

6. 80% of 60 equals 48. The easiest way to do this calculation is to report to 10, 8 versus 10, then multiply by 6 to get to 48 and 60.

7. 30% of 50 equals 15% of 100, so 15. By adding up the 50 children on Monday and 50-15 children on Tuesday, we get a total of 115 children.

8. 4 kilos bought without the discount equal $20. A 20% reduction on this $20 is equal to $4 (we do 10% and multiply by 2), so $16 for 4 kilos. By buying 12 kilos, Josephine pays 3 times $16, which equals $48.

9. If Max completes 30 kilometers in 3 hours, then he completes 15 kilometers in 1 hour and a half (90 minutes). Georges travels 30 kilometers in 2 hours and 20 minutes, that is, in 140 minutes, so he travels 15 kilometers in 1 hour and 10 minutes (70 minutes). The time difference between them is 20 minutes.

10. If 4 numbers have an average of 14, then the total of these 4 numbers is equal to 14 times 4, that is, 56. The addition of the first three numbers equals to 40, so the number 16 is missing in order to reach 56.

11. For 13 balls we have three red balls and 10 blue balls. By dividing 65 by 13, you get 5, so there are 15 red balls (5 times 3) and 50 blue balls (5 times 10).

12. We multiply all the numbers: 5 times 3 times 6 times 2 is equal to 180.

13. 1 + 9 (10) - 8 (2) + 7 (9) - 6 (3) + 5 (8).

14. 1 + 2 (3) + 4 (7) + 8 (15) + 16 (31) + 32 (63).

15. 25% - 26% equals 31% and 31% of 500 equals 255.

16. The four salaries are added up: 108 - 107 - 58 makes a total of 273. You divide by three and you get an average of 91.

17. All the figures have 4 corners, so the next figure is the parallelogram.

18. 2 shapes are colored in each figure, so the intruder is the D.

19. In the first column there are always four colored boxes, in the second five and in the third six, so the right proposition is the answer D.

20. The meaning of the word "passion" is to be passionate, emotional and intense, so the nearest opposite is "calm".

21. The meaning of the word "smart" is to be cunning and astute, so the nearest opposite is "silly".

22. Each letter in the suite follows the alphabetical order with the corresponding letter of the following word: AOHV … BPIW … CQJX … DRKY … ESLZ

23. The sequel is presented in series of two letters which follow a reverse alphabetical order reversing as well their positions within the couple: the first series begins with the letter S and then in the second element (R), moves into second position and so on:

SZ … YR … QX … WP … OV

24. The missing word is "panoramic."

25. The missing words are "chain" and "popular."

26. "The border delimits the end of a country." The corresponding analogy is that "midnight delimits the end of a day."

27. "Manifestation" has the same meaning as the word "insurrection" but implies a lower degree of intensity. The same relationship in the same order exists between "respect" and "adoration."

28. Kylie M. Anderson, Timothy C. Harris and Mary D. Petry are written differently.

29. The logical conclusion after combining the first two sentences is that a kitten is cute.

30. It is impossible for Amos to trust only Elisabeth since we know that Kiera is bigger than Elisabeth.
