ARITHMETIC REASONING FOR COMPETITIVE EXAMS

ARITHMETIC REASONING

For number of people, the math section of Examinations is the most difficult.  This section is  popular, and consists sole of mathematical word problems.  Yet we have to found that people can improve their scores by practicing word problems before the exam, and cultivating good problem solving habits. There are usually fifteen arithmetic reasoning questions.  Most are with moderate difficulty, and few are very easy and two or three are sometimes very difficult to solve.  If you get stuck on to one of the more difficult questions, you put a check mark and try  next to it  and come back to it later you find time. In most of exams people don’t usually run out of time.  This is understandable, but points given to correct answers one or two of these difficult questions may sometimes make a difference from ones place in a promotion list, so it’s good to go back and try different ones to solve a problem,  instead of just guessing. We suggest you to check the answer key after attempting every three questions.  Be sure to spend enough time on each question.  you won’t get as much out of the process if you do.  If you’ve missed any questions, consult your Self Study Guide and go for thorough explanation before you continue on to the next question.  Don’t worry if you are unable to do well at first, it’s been a long time since most people have answered these types of questions.  If your exam don’t allow you to use a calculator, it’s a good idea to practice these  type questions without a calculator to increase speed, accuracy and confidence.  Remember, those questions are not easy for most people.  They may seem difficult at first and for some may seem impossible.  If, however, a real effort is made to practice and learn from mistakes, scores in this area can improve.  We suggest you do these problems again a week before the exam
