Been having some difficulties with this question?
As suggested on the umat tutor practice question page, there are some ROTATIONs – and these refer to the smiley-heart border “square cornered U shapes” – but the main sequence is a repeated pattern, down the columns (of which there are 6 not 3) from left to right…
At the top of nearly every UMAT / HPAT test page is the phrase “…most logically and simply…”. This is very important, and should help with any confusion arising when there are only two options left to choose between to complete the diagram.
This is a continue-the-series within a complete-the-diagram question so discover what the repeated series is, then make sure it is completed in its final repeat, with the chosen diagram…
Smiley, smiley, heart, heart, heart… are you smiling now?
Released by nonVerbalReasoning.net in conjunction with umatTutor.com, this UMAT section 3 text book entitled “UMAT456” has been designed by way of worked examples, code hints, practice and time trial tests to help you understand the non-verbal reasoning questions found in the UMAT and to answer them successfully in the time allowed. Question types continue the series, complete the diagram and fit the middle are all covered extensively.
This 232 page text book contains 9 full page worked examples showing you exactly how to break each question down, analyse it and see what’s taking place, all new code-hints and how to use them, two full code-hinted UMAT’s and then ten more full UMAT tests. UMAT456 contains 456 test questions in all, and each question comes with full explanations and not just answers.
For this book and the purposes of training in the various UMAT methods a series of ‘code-hints’ have been developed. The code-hint images are significant to the method they represent and appear in the first two tests to help you establish mnemonically and quickly what type of question you are looking at and recall how to answer them as fast as possible.
Each test contains 38 questions with a time limit of 50 minutes. The tests can be taken with the normal time constraints or at your own pace, depending on your skill level and need.
The book comes complete with an answer sheet. It is recommended that you use a 2b pencil like you would in the exam to get used to test conditions and so you can erase any markings you may have made on the test pages to practice again.
This book may also be used by HPAT students in ireland as the HPAT is equivalent to the UMAT in structure and content.
The “UMAT456” UMAT question book ISBN is 978-0-9870478-0-9
