With such a lot of job seeking candidates in the fray it becomes essential on the part of the interviewers that they pick the best.
And as a job seeking candidate you need to satisfy the interviewers with your capabilities and performance in the interview.
Written formats are usually conducted in the initial stages wherein they need to narrow down the number of candidates.
The written format includes questions on logical and analytical reasoning.
These questions need you to note down the facts and break the problem into parts.
So on analyzing the statements, you reach a conclusion. Here the answers will be in the form of structures and you need to describe the Situation, Task, Action and the Result of a particular situation relevant to the asked question.
In verbal logic reasoning tests, usually a short passage is given and you are asked questions related to that. These tests are taken for jobs at finance sectors, banks, professional services, consulting firms and for fresher level entry jobs at software and hardware firms. Analytical thinking involves breaking a complex problem into parts and examining each part by the facts and data available and reaching a conclusion.
So your analytical skills are tested by such kind of questions.
Be it a manager or an accountant, be it a doctor or an engineer and be it a banker or a teacher, there cannot be an interview without the technical questions being raised.
Your technical prowess is the reason why you are being called for an interview.
