    Thanks, will do. Don't know how I'm going to post the diagram ones, which are of my biggest concern, but will post the other logical questions.

    I have the Diagram questions in Adobe format if anyone is interested or curious. No answers of course.

    This job will have about 1% programming in it. I only have to take this test because of the job title. I was originally hired as a BSA, now they are switching it to SA b/c of an IT re-org. Long story. Hence my problem.

    sample test questions

    I'd have to mail them to you if anyone is interested. I take this test tomorrow at 930am

    There are certainly a lot I don't get.

    Good luck. Sometimes on tests the answers magically enter my brain, most of the time not so much. Flesh it out.

    How about these! Only 2

    I couldn't get these...atleast I don't know if I'm right!

    Q: What is the missing number in the following series?
    12, 144, 16, ?, 20, 324

    A)256 B)216 C)238 D)234

    Logically it looks to be A) 256, but then that doesn't fit with the 324??

    Q: Which number in the following series is incorrect?
    5, 13, 35, 73, 158?
    I picked 73, although not sure why.....

    Asked in another thread.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Hi,

    I'm also taking the CPAB test soon. I was wondering if Scotty101, you could tell me what the test was like? What the diagram section was like?
    Thanks!

    We're sorry, Scotty101 was tragically destroyed in the process and no longer available.

    Maybe you can start with the forum rules:
    C Board - Announcements in Forum : General Discussions
    before digging up a thread nearly 3 years old with "me too".
