The first half of the Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences module of the TestAS tests your ability to deduce conclusions from natural science concepts. Our ebook with three practice tests will help you familiarise yourself with the test and identify the topics where you need to complement your knowledge.

 

Please note:  A good understanding of major natural science topics is necessary to solve some of the questions. For summaries of physics, chemistry and biology, please refer to high-school science books. In our ebook we list the commonly asked areas, so you can identify your weaknesses and prioritise these during your preparation.

 

The 2nd half of our ebook trains you for the Understanding Formal Depiction section. We explain how you can approach this unusual question type. Special focus is placed on the more complex question types. For instance, many students report difficulty solving the process questions that involve a calculation. You will also read about tips to avoid common pitfalls and can practice with many questions.

This eBook contains a full-length practice test for students taking the TestAS with the Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences subject module. The following sections are included:

  • Core Test (Solving Quantitative Problems, Inferring Relationships, Completing Patterns, Continuing Numerical Series)
  • Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences Module (Analysing Scientific Interrelationships, Understanding Formal Depictions)

We recommend you take this practice test under the real exam conditions detailed in the ebook. Ideally you will finish this test in one session, adhering to the applicable time limits of the actual TestAS. Working on the practice test within the allotted times for each section will help you determine your level of concentration and the sections where you may need to rely on intelligent guessing in order to complete all questions.

The Economics module of the TestAS focuses on interpretation of visuals in combination with the speedy use of analytical skills.

 

In the chapters on the first subtest "Analysing Economic Interrelationships", we detail many types of visuals – tables, charts (e.g., pie, area, line), scatterplots, 2x2 diagrams to name a few. Additionally you will learn about frequently encountered concepts such as quarterly percentage change. Moreover, we included testtaking tips showing what prior testtakers wished they knew before taking the exam.

 

In the "Analysing Processes" chapters we explain how to approach this unusual question type. Special focus is placed on the more complex question types. For instance, many students report difficulties solving the process questions that involve a calculation. You will also read about tips to avoid common pitfalls.

 

You can implement the theory learned in the book while solving the two full-size practice tests in the Economics ebook.

Our first ebook on the Engineering module of TestAS will focus on the subtest "Visualising Solids", in which your ability to imagine objects in two and three dimensions is tested. Some students perceive these questions to be very difficult, mainly because they are unlike anything that you studied in high school. But this skill can be trained using our step-by-step approach.

 

For each question type, we suggest a step-by-step methodology where you look for distinct characteristics in the visual to derive at the solution. In the case of the 2D questions, our 3D images will train your imagination to "see" the two-dimensional images in 3D. The proverb "practice makes a wo/man perfect" fully applies to this question type. Therefore you have 4 full-size practice tests in the ebook on the subtest Visualising Solids.

 

Additionally, our suggestions to avoid common pitfalls (such as confusing the right and left turn in the 3D questions) will prevent you from making careless mistakes.
