with visual explanations for every question…

After many student questions and much thought the second non verbal reasoning question book umat123 ‘a Visual Diary’ was written; a kind of prequel to umat456 full of visual explanations documenting the thought processes you may go through before discovering the method being used in each question, and hence the arrival at a correct answer.

This 120 page book has every question code-hinted for easy reference to the up-dated code-hint section; the code-hints are images significant to the method they represent, helping you to mnemonically recall the method being used, and answer the questions more quickly and in the time allowed. The code hint section is visually explained too with examples for each type.

umat123_aVisualDiary_page_53_600x849New to this book and non verbal reasoning questions in general I have designed ‘rotation-tables’ to help you with the most commonly used and often trickiest UMAT / HPAT non verbal reasoning question method: the rotation.

Each question type is colour coded with reference in the front of the book & the question explanations also utilise colour to help you spot the element’s patterns and the diagrams sequences.

Included in this book along with continue the series, complete the diagram and middle of the sequence questions are a variety of other non verbal reasoning questions: Spatial, Raven’s Matrices, Code-breakers, Associations and more, allowing for possible changes to the coming year’s UMAT / HPAT and giving you extra non verbal reasoning skills. Be prepared.

This book may also be used by HPAT students in ireland as the HPAT is equivalent to the UMAT in structure and content.

The UMAT text book UMAT123 “a Visual Diary” has the ISBN 978-0-9870478-1-6

umat123_aVisualDiary_page_75_600x849Left we see a bunch of black and white robots while looking kinda goofy and cute can be confusing if all lined up forming a umat question!

Where do you start? what elements do you follow? What are elements? While in their natural black and white these questions may seem indecipherable, especially the ‘middle of the sequence’ but with a little educational colour appropriately placed, you can see where the eyes are meant to go (and how the robots teeth and eyes go from one shading to the next!)

Work through this book covering all but the question, try the question first in its natural black and white habitat; How did you go? did you get it right? No? Well uncover the rest of the page and let colour and repetitions be your friend…
