Prospective employees should prepare for an employment assessment test by asking about the type of test to be administered and its duration. They should also ask if the test will be given online, by phone or in person. Prospective employees can then take a number of practice tests to prepare them for the real test. They should get in touch with people who have taken the test, and seek advice on the best strategies for answering questions.

During the test, prospective employees should answer all questions consistently and honestly. These tests usually ask similar questions repeatedly to ensure that test takers are being truthful. They should also read the questions carefully, and leave questions that they do not have answers to until last. Prospective employees should give answers that are in line with the corporate style, whether that is creative, ambitious or bureaucratic.

Finally, prospective employees should ask for feedback after the test, and be open to, and positive about, constructive criticism. It is a good idea for test takers to write down some questions after the test, and the names of the tests for reference during later interviews with managers or administrators.
