Verbal reasoning tests of intelligence provide an assessment of an individual’s ability to think, reason, and solve problems in different ways. these tests are often used as entrance examinations by schools, colleges, and universities to select the ablest applicants. They are also used by a growing number of employers as part of the selection/recruitment process. Large graduate training schemes are increasingly using verbal reasoning tests (verbals) to distinguish between applicants. The types of verbals candidates face in these assessments are typically looking to assess understanding and comprehension skills.
