The Wiesen Test of Mechanical Aptitude (WTMA), from APR Testing Services, consists of 60 multiple-choice questions with a 30-minute time allotment. Each question uses diagrams to illustrate mechanical principles. The questions found on the test are about the function, size, shape, appearance and weight of common physical devices and tools.
The Wiesen test is among the most popular mechanical reasoning tests and is considered very reliable. The WTMA assesses broad physical and mechanical concepts as well as one's ability to operate, maintain, and repair machinery. It is designed to assist employers in selecting candidates for employment, vocational students, and academic research. The WTMA was designed to reduce gender racial, and academic bias. The questions on the Wiesen test, which are written on a sixth grade reading level, do not require familiarity with objects encountered in specific events.
To succeed on your WTMA test, it is important to prepare. JobTestPrep's Wiesen Test of Mechanical Aptitude practice test pack covers the mechanical aptitude topics seen on the actual Wiesen test. The Wiesen practice tests can be taken in real-time simulation mode (to reflect similar test conditions) or step-by-step mode. Practice tests include answers and in-depth explanations.
