This training is designed to prepare for the tests present in the current competitions.

It is also suitable for anyone preparing for the reasoning tests.

The actual content of the course is described above, this text is for information only. The course description may not include all preparations described herebelow.


This distance course is to prepare for each of the reasoning test and multiply your chance of success to the competition. For each test, we will study the methodology illustrated by examples. We will then practice with tests which will be explained and corrected by the trainer.

We are all capable of developing these skills. It is not a question of intelligence, but of learning.


The verbal reasoning test is not a test of knowledge but of logic. To be successful, candidates must display four key qualities:


the ability to analyse a statement and understand the meaning of a text;


a mastery of certain rules of verbal logic in order to establish whether or not an answer can be deduced from the information in the text;


the ability to identify quickly which statements are most likely to constitute the correct answer;


the ability to read a text selectively.


The numerical reasoning test is not just a test of calculation. To be successful, candidates must display three key qualities:


the ability to understand and analyse: you need to know how to read a piece of information and interpret tables and graphs in order to decide correctly what operations are needed,


a mastery of basic mathematical concepts: percentages, variation rates, averages…,


speed: to answer the questions within the time allowed, you must avoid long calculations wherever possible and also avoid automatic use of the calculator.


Abstract reasoning questions are presented as series of diagrams containing geometric shapes which are repeated or modified according to a logical sequence. Candidates have to identify the underlying logic and find the diagram that completes the series.

Abstract reasoning tests call for skills that candidates do not normally use in everyday life:


the ability to visualise geometric transformations (rotations, symmetries, …),


an aptitude to spot similarities between complex shapes, ...
