    I'm not sure about the specifics of that test but in general you can probably find some information about the difficulty level of the test you are taking and which company administers it on the company website. I have taken plenty of psychometric tests - websites I have found to be useful that offer practice questions are shl and jobtestprep. hope this helps

    Check on or look for the S.T.A.R practice exam. A couple hundred questions that will get you started. I just took it for the second time as a requirement (sort of) for work. Not too awful hard if you've been on the commercial side for any length of time.

    I wish I came across this thread at least a week ago The mech aptitude test is more like an IQ test, so as long as you can hammer away quickly, it should not be a problem. The math/science stuff was very elementary. Math was mostly just arithmetics with some simple equations, chem didn't go below grade 9 and physics... As long as you know your electrical, energy and gases at the G2 course level, you should be fine.
