 # Abstract Reasoning Questions and Answers

Abstract reasoning tests assess your ability to identify the relationships between a series of shapes, patterns or images. The test is a good indicator of strategic thinking, how quickly you pick up new concepts and how well you cope under pressure. Practise with our Abstract Resoning test questions to help you know what to expect, improve your speed and confidence and be really prepared for the actual test.
