    This is extremely helpful for me to practice CCAT in such short amount of time (I had less than 48 hours). Some of the tips in the course are very practical, too.
    The information of each session is short and to the point.
    I particularly love the 4 full mock tests. After the short assessment test and 1 full mock test, I was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses and how to improve my score.
    Gideon was also quick in helping me with some issues in my account.

    Overall, if you need to get to know the CCAT as fast as you possibly can, this is the place to be.

    This course was extremely helpful in preparing me for the CCAT in a very short amount of time. I took the free shortened practice exam and bombed it. After going through the course and taking the full length practice tests, I was confident in my strategy, had no issues getting through all 50 questions, and was able to focus on the questions I was good at. In addition, the actual CCAT I took was much easier, so I felt confident that I scored much higher than I thought I would. Unfortunately, the company would not provide me with my raw score, so I don’t even know how I did. It was good enough to move forward to the next round of the interview process though!

    This CCAT cram course is PERFECT in preparing you for the assessment. There is so much great content, shortcuts, practice questions, etc., to ensure you will pass. Gideon is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and excellent with communication. Will definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you!

    This gave me an opportunity to practice, but did not really teach me any concrete skills needed to “pass” the CCAT. Time, per question, is what I need, but cannot be provided. Maybe I’m missing something.
    Hopefully I will do better on the CCAT than I have done previously. Then this course will have been worth the time I took to prepare.

    Also, Practice Test #3 would not allow me to mark it as complete. The button is “ghosted”.

    Thank you.

    This test has helped me to understand how to approach the CCAT test and excel in it. I have tried to take it before without this cram course and I could only answer 30 questions (with a score of 26). But a score of 35 being the line to cross, I needed a guidance on what my weakness were and how to rectify it. Gideon’s free prep course and this cram course is what I needed. It gives you an insight on the test and how to approach it. It shows your strength where you should spend time and weakness where you should skip. I am happy to say that I passed the CCAT this time with a score of 40 (that puts me in the 95th percentile).

    Thanks Gideon for this wonderful course. I recommend this course with both my thumbs up to anyone who needs a prep for CCAT.

    These tests are quite comprehensive. It takes you back to the basics with clear explanations and enough practice tests. Due to this, i was able to pass my CCAT which i previously thought was unachievable. Thank you Gideon.

    I found this course to be extremely useful in preparing for the CCAT. It was worth the money spent, and in fact, is a great value compared to other courses I researched. I consider myself to be intelligent, but know without practice, I would not have been able to manage my time appropriately. I feel as though the practice tests were harder than the real thing, but that helped me prepare. I passed my CCAT with flying colors. Thanks Gideon!

    I had 4 days warning to take my CCAT test. I ended up passing with a decent score to which a lot of credit goes to Gideon’s CCAT Cram course. The course is well structured and is both detailed enough, without being overly long. As a tailored CCAT course, Gideon’s site also has the edge over providers of generic aptitude test questions. I should also add that the course is good value. Highly recommended.

    Tips for passing CCAT: 1) Practice, Practice, Practice! 2) Exam technique. Try & get thru all 50 questions by skipping out any questions that are too complex or are in one of your weak areas. Better to get 70% of 50 questions correct, than 90% of 30. Also, bear in mind that many of the questions on Gideon’s mock test are harder than what came up in the real exam. While there are some tougher questions on the real test, many are more straighforward – as long as you have a clear head and keep calm. Good luck and Don’t Panic!

    This is a great class to prepare you for a CCAT exam. If you have never taken one, Gideon does a great job with getting you familiar with the format and styles of questions. If you’ve struggled with it in the past, the tips and practice he gives you, as well as resources to learn more an vital. To cap it off, the 1:1 session is extremely useful to help identify and improve your weak points. Thanks Gideon.

    I had a very short window to prep and this helped SO much. I improved so much from my first practice test to my final test and was able to pass the official exam to move on in my interview process. I highly recommend.

  16. Veena Hausen

    1. Very useful
    2. Includes just the topics needed for CCAT

    I used both the free and the paid course. The sources listed for training different topics really helped find techniques to solve problems quickly.
    I was able to solve most types of questions. Time was my only issue. The time was running out by the time I reached 35 to 36 questions.
    Gideon offered me a coaching session which was very helpful. The best tip he gave me was to find a way to recognise questions that need a lot of time and skip them after marking an answer with an educated guess, or random guess.
    After this, I found a way to skip time consuming questions and was able to see upto 45 questions and later improved my timing to see all 50. It boosted my score to 37.

    Highly recommend.

    This is a great course at a great price. At the beginning of the course I was averaging maybe a 24 of 50 correct. The tips and tricks in this course helped me to get to a 30 average on the practice test. The videos and explanations are very helpful. I tried another course around the same price and they do not provide this level of detail. Plus I was able to get guidance from Gideon himself which was very helpful. I highly recommend this course as it is a well rounded instruction of how to prepare and what to expect. Thanks Gideon!

    Dear Gideon,

    You have a good collection of practice tests as well as theoretical explanations in your test sections.

    However, I faced roadblocks along the way, some of which I have pointed out below:

    1. lowest value – no answers or hints, which made it useless to even do it.
    2. I used the “Need Help?” chat section, but I never received any help or even a response. As such, I was confused about certain aspects of the tests and certain problem-solving methodology right from the start and didn’t know how to get it clarified with you.
    3. Few quizzes / drills are not marked as completed properly, which made it confusing when I got back after a few breaks.
    4. Question 4 and 16 of Odd-one-out drill do not have any shapes but only the answer options
    5. In the Shape series lecture, no shape diagram is shown to explain the “size” topic

    As such and quite unfortunately, my experience has not been good with the course that I purchased for about $43 CAD (FOREX charges included). I never mind paying for services but I do expect a good experience and support, which I found unsatisfactory here.

    1. Gideon
        May 17, 2020 at 6:44 AM

      Dear Jovin,

      I am sorry you were disappointed with the service. I’ve refunded your purchase in full as part of my 100% satisfaction guarantee. However, please refer to the points below which address the issues you’ve raised:

      1. This is not true. The lowest value does in fact include detailed explanations per question. Upon submission, you have the chance to review and read all explanations, similar to how it’s done on the full-length practice tests.
      2. I did find one unattended questions from 7 days ago, regarding a specific work rate problem. I am sorry you did not receive a response and I’ll check why that happened.
      3. It is the user who needs to mark a quiz as complete upon submission and review, the system will not do this automatically.
      4. I’m not able to recreate this and it could have been a temporary internet connection slowness issue on any of the sides (website or yours).
      5. I’ll add an example there, that’s a good idea

      I hope the course helped you overall and that you got the score you wished for.

      Sincerely,

      Gideon

    This CCAT course has excellent content and pricing, and I found much improvement after familiarizing myself with Gideon’s preparatory materials. If you’re like me with crippling insecurity over test-taking—buy this course! Your anxiety will slowly start to dissipate with any practice you get in.

    Due to the pandemic, Gideon also generously offered a free coaching session to those who purchase this course and is a positive, practical guide who truly wants to see you succeed.

    12MINPREP is the most helpful and professional resource I was able to find for preparing for the CCAT and other exams. The content quality is top notch, the test question examples and explanations are fantastic and the technical and coaching support provided is heads above the rest. 12minprep provides a free class that may be enough for some people as well as a plethora of reasonably price paid offerings, backed up by 1:1 coaching if needed. Having tried other paid web sites, I found them to be full of typos, poorly worded and incorrect explanations with bad support. I highly recommend 12MINPREP.

      I’m fully satisfied with the course as I was with the free one I took first. Lecturers are well structured and tips help a lot. I had a good practice with the different drills and tests. When it came to the real one, I felt perfectly prepared. I strongly recommend.

  25. Ahmad Timehin
      April 28, 2020 at 6:12 PM

    The preparation was very helpful. I took the third test about 10 minutes to the start of my real test to drive my confidence and verify that I was able to quickly determine whether I could solve a problem in time.
    I used it in preparation for a proctored CCAT and it helped greatly. I scored 42 which according to Crossover ‘put me in the 97 percentile’.

    I totally recommend it.

    It’s not without its issues though, like the site sometimes failed to submit tests and some of the abstract reasoning problems that had more than one valid solution. Nothing deal-breaking though.

    Giving it 5 stars.

    Hi,

    I took this course to help prepare for the CCAT(Criteria Corp) exam. I had 5 days to prepare. For the first 3 days I used another course(iPrep) and then I came across 12minprep. I practiced the exams and went through course material, finding it useful. The actual questions on my CCAT exam were pretty similar to the ones on this course’s practice exams. Honestly, the questions on the CCAT exam felt easier. I needed a 31/50 for the company I interviewed with. I’d say my performance on the practice tests was a good measure of how I performed on the actual exam. Note: I do not have the result as of now.

    If I had to make a suggestion I would say that having more practice tests would be awesome(maybe 6 or more).

    Thanks Gideon!

      I am terrible at math and did not meet the threshold of a passing CCAT score for a prospective employer. Luckily, I was afforded a retake. So I started practicing with the free Cognitive Ability Practice Test, took 12min prep’s CCAT Cram Prep Course and attended a few of Gideon’s one-on-one tutorials. Through the learning process with 12min prep, I was able to improve my score by 25% and pass the retake! I highly recommend this course if you need to prep for the CCAT. Kristin

    I liked the overall course material and lectures. However, when it came time of me to practice the mock tests none of them had the question number assigned to the question. Like another user said it was a list of questions which was disappointing as I wanted to time myself on time spent per question. I specifically bought this course so I could practice this, hence the low rating.

    1. Gideon
        September 16, 2019 at 10:43 AM

      Dear Kristen,

      Gideon here, I just read your feedback and I was sorry to hear you experienced this question numbering issue on the mock tests. Thanks to your comment, I discovered a temporary layout bug that started on the 13th (a day before you purchased the course), which got the test’s timer display to hide the question’s numbering/position on some browsers. Had you contacted me as it happened, I would have fixed it straight away. I have also fixed the bug and the tests are now displaying the question position as they did before.

      In any case, I have just refunded your purchase in full and I hope that apart from that glitch, you did find my course helpful.

      Any additional feedback would be most welcome.

      Sincerely,
      Gideon

    PROS **

    Did these CCAT tests helped me?
    Yes. I could not have done it without some preparatory tests. Just one test, the free one, was not enough. I benefited from the training resources listed in the video lessons. I was in need of the actual series of tests to max up my speed.

    Was the CCAT tests sufficient?
    Yes, for my purpose of preparing for just one job evaluation.

    Is it good value for money compared to the competition?
    Yes, it costs only 1/3 of other tests from more established firms. However it is good value only for a one-off job assessment. I would not use it again, as the package contains only three tests, that’s all. But, hey, I needed it only once to get into a job interview.

    CONS **

    The second test does not follow the proper format, which is to force us to click on a submit button to move to the next test. It was instead a list questions. this was unfortunate as I needed to tests specifically to train myself on skipping to the next questions every 20 seconds. Test #1 and #3 were properly formatted, Test #2 was not. A minor point for most people I am sure, but I remove one star because of the issue.

    There were also some minor mistakes in the tests themselves, nothing dramatic, but still unfortunate.
    * Mistakes in at least two abstract tests where a different answer can be reached using a different (and valid) set of visual rules. I noticed one in lesson 2 and one in lesson 3.
    * Mistake in a “series of letters” in lesson 3. The 4 options are incorrect and do not follow the proper rule as described in the explanation once the test is completed (jump +4)

    1. Gideon
        July 30, 2019 at 8:16 AM

      Dear Raph,

      Thanks for the constructive feedback.

      1. I’ve just fixed the second test’s format issue. I don’t know how this even got about to change, as all tests were designed in the same way, but it’s a valid point and it’s now been fixed.
      2. As for the mistakes you found in specific questions, I will contact you privately to try and locate them and fix them accordingly.
      3. I’ve also now refunded half the amount you paid to compensate for the inconvenience you experienced.

      Sincerely,

      Gideon
