Top 5 Wonderlic Subway Assessment Test Tips

1. Take a guess – Since you won’t be penalized for answering questions incorrectly, feel free to use the process of elimination and take a guess whenever you aren’t sure of the right answer.

2. Don’t Use a Calculator – When practicing for the real test, make sure NOT to use a calculator, since they won’t be permitted to use during the exam. Instead, try to write out your math problems on a piece of scratch paper.

5. Practice – It goes without saying that practice makes perfect. With our tailor-made Wonderlic PrepPack, you can familiarize yourself with the structure and content of the real Subway assessment tests so you can gain the confidence you need to succeed!
