About the Canadian Forces Aptitude Test

Verbal Skills

Verbal skills in the CFAT are really just another name for vocabulary and analogies. The CFAT has four different types of verbal skills questions: synonyms, where you are required to choose a word with the same meaning, antonyms, where you are required to choose a word with the opposite meaning, and definition questions, where you are required to choose the definition of a given word.

Problem Solving

The Problem Solving section has three types of questions, Word Problems and number Sequences

Spatial Ability

The Spatial Ability section gives graphics of expanded shapes and you must choose what the shape will look like when folded or unfolded.  These are quite tricky if you are un-prepared!

I would give five stars if there are no typos. But it is good to have this book for the CFAT. I passed with this book.

While the book provides useful tips in order to succeed in the CFAT, the title of the book is perhaps overrated because it provides the same type of practice as other guides involving spacial ability, vocabulary and mathematics. However, the book does mention that what you will find in it won't exactly be the same stuff as on the exam, but any manual that includes guidance for any aptitude tests will help you just as much for the CFAT.  It will give you an idea of what you shall expect during the test. Good luck.
