ASSEMBLY
The Assembly selection test measures a candidate's ability to visualize the properly assembled form of an
object.

ASSEMBLY PRACTICE TEST


This practice test is similar in content and structure to the real selection test. We recommend that you time
yourself while taking the practice test to get a feel for how much time you will have to complete the real
selection test. It may be to your advantage to complete all practice test questions. Answers and explanations
for the practice test questions are provided at the end of the practice test. You should consult these answers
only after completing all the practice test questions.
Directions
In this test you are to figure out how something would look if it were put together properly. The parts to be put
together are shown at the beginning of each problem and are followed by five pictures showing five different
ways the parts could be put together. Only one of them is correct.
Each part is marked with one or more letters, each of which stands for a place on the part. Letters referring to
places that do not show are placed outside the part, with a dotted line pointing to the underneath side, or the
place that you can't see.
In figure 1 below, the letter A refers to the bottom of the cube. B points to the back of the cube. C refers to the
upper front edge of the cube.

In the test, you are to assemble the parts so that the places having the same letter are put together.
Look at the first sample below. Try to figure out which of the five assemblies is correct.

Look at the ends marked A. If the ends marked A were put together, how would they look? Of the five pictures,
only pictures 2, 4, and 5 have the ends marked A put together. Now look at the first of the parts marked with a
B. Note how the dotted line from B points to the underside, which you cannot see. Which of the pictures 2, 4,
and 5 shows the two places marked B put together? Of these three, only picture 2 has the places marked B
put together. Therefore, picture 2 is the correct answer. This is the only picture of the five that has all the parts
put together in the way the letters show they should be. Therefore, circle 2 has been filled in for Sample 1.

Practice Tests

Now work the sample below and blacken the circle in front of your answer.

You should have blackened circle 5. When the parts marked A are put together, they look like those in either
picture 3 or picture 5. In both of these pictures, the places on the parts marked B have been put together. But
when the places on the parts marked C are put together, they look like picture 5.
In deciding how the parts should be put together, do not think about what the completed thing is or what it
does. Just follow the letters on the parts that show you how they are to be put together.
This practice test has 9 questions and should take you 5 minutes to complete.
