A misunderstanding or misapplication of mechanical principles can compromise the safety and performance of a machine. For example, if gears are installed incorrectly, a machine will malfunction, and the engine’s performance may suffer. Always hire candidates with a strong grasp of mechanical concepts when seeking a mechanical or manufacturing job.
The mechanical reasoning test measures your understanding of the concepts of physics and mechanics. It evaluates your comprehension of the three main areas of mechanics: force and motion, velocity, pulleys, gears, and wheels. Through multiple-choice questions that ask about real-life problems and events, this screening test measures your ability to perceive the relationships between physical forces and mechanical elements in practical situations.
Candidates who are successful at this test have a good understanding of mechanical principles. They will be able to work with complex machinery and perform tasks requiring more than basic mechanical skills.
- Force and movement
- Mechanical Principles
- Mechanical Aptitude
- Machine Operator
