Summary

Verbal comprehension refers to people's ability to apply reasoning skills to information presented in written form, interpret words in instructions, access their vocabulary, read a passage of information, and identify relevant information from that passage.

The current test is designed to assess a candidate's ability to read a passage of information quickly and identify relevant information from that passage.

For example, a question may require a candidate to read a short paragraph. Following that, the person will be given a list of statements and asked to choose which one is correct or incorrect based on the information provided in the paragraph only. When answering the questions, the person must base their answer only on the information presented or not in the given paragraph, without using their personal opinions to dictate their answers.

The test is timed and in a multiple-choice format.
