    As a quick disclaimer, I rarely purchase any kind of test preparation course. However, after finding the 12minprep introductory course so helpful, I decided to purchase the CCAT full-length course. I echo other reviewers: it is a rare occasion that you find a course so inexpensive, yet so useful. While I skimmed most of the lessons, the end-of-section quizzes, mid-course quiz, and practice test were extremely helpful in preparing me for the test. My job interview actually gave me 40 questions in 20 minutes (instead of 50 questions in 15 minutes), so I was able to answer each question and made it through to the next round of interviews. Additionally, I asked Gideon a question in the chat box and he responded to it in a very personal, well-thought out email. I would highly recommend this course to anyone preparing for a job interview. Thank you 12minprep for helping me in my job application journey!

    I believe that there are 2 programs that will prepare you for various Cognitive Ability Tests. I found 12minprep superior versus its competitor. 12minprep will prepare your mind to take the onslaught of answering questions quickly. In less than 48 hours of cramming, I successfully scored well on the CCAT, which qualified me for the next applicant round: interviews. I thank 12minprep for helping me secure my new job.

  3. Great course and worth every penny

    It’s not everyday that you come across something so useful and yet extremely affordable. This was a breath of fresh air and I’m glad I invested and spent the time learning this. I would highly recommend it to anyone preparing for the CCAT test

    Thank you Gideon for creating and offering an excellent comprehensive CCAT prep course. I really like 12minprep’s format consisting of lectures, examples, quizzes, and the clear explanations provided for each answer. And I felt Gideon and the team’s presence and support throughout the course. Receiving the performance metrics was very helpful.
    I agree with the other reviewers that the actual test was easier and this helped me relax. Still waiting to hear how I performed. I highly recommend 12minprep. it is exceeded my expectations. I am going to keep practicing for fun. This says a lot about the course for sure!

    This course is fantastic. It provides you with extremely relevant deep dives on all the topics you can expect when taking the CCAT. This includes well explained and discussed examples, sample tests as well as practice tests that mirror what you will encounter when taking the actual CCAT. But, maybe the single most valuable aspect of this course for me was the discussion around time management. I have a background in math and thus wanted to ace those portions of the test. The reality of the time constraint doesn’t really allow for that AND for you to complete the test and expose the more straightforward and less intense question types which give you a greater chance for getting the most correct answers – which is the goal. Thus I changed my strategy and focused on a strategy that allowed for me to complete the 50 questions vs. getting bogged down with lengthy multi-computational word problems. I have passed the exam and moved to the interview phase of the recruiting process. I don’t think I would have had I not taken this course and studied as Gideon suggests.

    I needed to train for the CCAT so I could pass the assessment to move on to the next stages of a coding boot camp’s selection process. I was not disappointed. I felt so prepared and so confident going in and once it began, I performed really well. It was worth every penny.

    The CCAT course without a doubt was worth every penny. Gideon clearly knows what he is taking about! The real test felt like an easier version of practice down to the order of questions.

    This course is excellent. The prep is actually more difficult than the actual test, ensuring I was prepared. As a result, I found the actual test easy and scored I the top 10% of all candidates.

      February 18, 2021 at 1:47 AM

    Good prep, I only had two and half days. Never did get comfortable with ratio problems, but feedback I got from my application is that I did well on the actual test. If you are in the job market, buy this now and practice. Not sure you will retain specific problems, but using a YouTube 20 second timer and practicing a couple test allowed me 1 minute and 15 seconds for the last question, which involved math, so I answered all my questions.

    It has been a looong time since I had to study for a test like this, and I was extremely apprehensive about it. Fortunately I found you Gideon, and was able to take advantage of your really well designed and executed course. From a very low starting point you helped me score 82% on my test in less than 7 days, and I’m really happy I took the time to learn all about CCAT with you!

    I spent the better part of 2.5 days preparing for the CCAT assessment. The company I took this for didn’t provide me my score. But they told me I did ‘very good’. I’m sure this program made a huge difference. I totally recommend it.

    Just two days away from the exam, I decided to purchase the course. What I thought was: “If I am not willing to invest all I can in this, I might as well not do it.”
    And the investment was worthy. I got 80% right and ended up in the 92nd percentile for the role I was applying to.
    Thanks for your help!

  17. Rahul Korlipara
      January 13, 2021 at 2:55 PM

    I didn’t want to spend more than 3 days preparing for this test and signed up primarily for the 4 practice tests.
    – The teaching material is superb as was the advice on how to take the actual test. The latter by itself improved my performance significantly.
    – The test questions were the closest I have seen compared to the actual test. Also the practice test questions were actually just a bit tougher then the actual exam, which worked out perfectly.
    I made it to question 49 in the actual test, skipped the ones I thought were time-consuming for m(7-8) and believe got most of the rest correct. I don’t know my actual score (employer didn’t disclose) but reckon it’s in high 30s or early 40s. Great course and I highly recommend it.
    A note of advice: Don’t go by the average score vs. your performance at the end of each test. I don’t know if scores of the course students taking the test twice are taken into account in the averages, but going by my actual performance I’d say they are, making these averages inaccurate.

    Thank you, 12minprep (Gideon).

    This course is not only well constructed, but is compressive and easy to follow. How Gideon breaks out the content significantly helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses to prepare for my CCAT exam. For context, I am not a “quant” or “genius,” so just taking the test is daunting. I probably won’t score in the upper quartile of test takers (i.e. my competition), but I will definitely do MUCH BETTER than being unprepared, which I believe gives me a leg up on the competition. Thanks again, Gideon.

    All my best,

    I had never taken a CCAT before and I had five days to prepare for it. This course proved to be of fundamental importance for me to clear the test. I am not familiar with the content of other CCAT resources online, but 12minprep appears to offer the best value for money. The course itself covers all different topics and nuances of the CCAT and, at least in my case, the mock tests were more difficult than the real CCAT, which ought to be a plus.

  20. Laurentiu Barbu
      November 30, 2020 at 11:04 PM

    Very good preparation platform for the actual test. Tips are extremely useful, I got from ~37 questions to 48 thanks to these tips. Price is decent, go for it!

    After researching across so many courses , and then taking this course –
    Found that This is truly THE BEST course on the market for CCAT . Look nowhere else .

    Also – For anyone serious about wanting flying colors in CCAT – the paid CCAT CRAM PREP course is a GREAT HELP . worth the money and time .
    If you do your own sincere homework + review from the resources he has shared – that will boost the scores .

    The content , structure and prompt support from Gideon – make it awesome in all key areas .
    Thanks a lot Gideon !

    Very pleased with this CCAT cram course, for a number of reasons. Firstly, the price is very reasonable. Secondly, the amount and quality of content provided is very good value for money. Thirdly, the content was effective in helping me to prepare at 4 days’ notice for a test as part of a recruitment process. I was sceptical about my chances of passing the real test, but thought I would give it my best shot. I watched the lectures, did some of the drills, and only did two mock tests, so I didn’t take advantage of everything provided. I must say that Gideon has a very calm and reassuring manner on the videos, which helped to put me at ease. Even though I didn’t use all the materials provided, what I did use was sufficient: I passed the real test to the standard requirement. The recruiting manager told me that only a small proportion of applicants he’d encountered passed the test, so he said I did very well to pass. In conclusion, this purchase was very good value for money, and I would recommend it. (I have not been offered any inducements to make this recommendation either!)

    Great course, highly recommend it .. totally worth the price! I tried the Jobpreptest course prior to this one and this one was way better (at half the cost).

    The practice tests in this course were actually harder than the actual so it helped me do really well on the actual test.

  27. Michael Seymour
      October 14, 2020 at 3:49 PM

    Overall the course helped me do well on my test. I did think the actual course was a lot easier than the prep course. But practicing the types of questions, seeing what I did wrong, and also working on the timer was extremely helpful.

  28. Maya Nurali
      October 12, 2020 at 5:40 AM

    The video courses and quizes are helpful. I’m familiar with the aptitude test concept, but this is definitely a good refresher and help me to refresh my knowledge on maths questions. I only had 2.5 days to prepare for the test. I found some faulty with the quizes tough, when I did some of the answers, somehow it didn’t record them correctly and the record were saying I answered differently, so the records were saying I made more mistakes than I actually was. One of the example is also wrong on a particular topic. All in all, the video lectures are very clear and helpful, the examples helped me to understand the questions and answers, the quizes helped with the practice, but there are things that need to be fixed as they’re inaccurate.

    This course was extremely thorough and highly relevant in terms of preparing for the CCAT exam. I liked how “shocked” I was with the first practice test and the illustration of the importance of time mgmt. I also liked that the practice exams were generally a bit more difficult than the actual exam. Gideon is a masterful instructor.5 Stars!

      October 7, 2020 at 4:34 PM

    Giddeon’s course helps you understand and be prepared for the actual test. Try to practice with much time in advance of taking the test and make sure you follow Giddeon’s advice on strategy in order to perform better.

  32. Patrick Turley
      September 15, 2020 at 1:34 PM

    This is an excellent course. I had 3 days to take the actual test so I planned this as a 2 day crash course where I leveraged the strategies/tips/tricks as well as the 4 mock tests (each taken twice) as a way to determine my own personal strategy for taking the actual test. The goal is to obtain an understanding of the three sections (verbal, numeric, spacial) and work on your strategy/timing for answering the questions (which ones to potentially skip, which ones to spend a little extra time on, etc.). You have to determine the strategy that works for you. Align the guidance to your strengths and weaknesses. For me personally, I excel with numbers so I wanted to answer all the numeric questions, found myself moving quickly through the verbal questions during the mock tests so I wanted to answer all of them and then be careful not taking too much time on the spacial questions. There was a tip to potentially answer only 40 questions so you can skip the 10 most difficult/longer questions but as I got comfortable improving my speed and strategy throughout the mock tests I found I could target to answer all 50 with a high accuracy target. The 2 days I spent preparing and taking all 4 mock tests twice prepared me perfectly. I passed the actual test with flying colors and can not leverage my test scores for many future job opportunities that require this test. Good luck to everyone!

    I had a fantastic experience with this course. I had 12 days to my test and as much as I thought that I could probably pass, I knew that the job I was applying for had an extremely high passing grade. So my plan was to prepare as much as possible so that I could blow it out of the park.

    The course was extremely thorough. There’s focus on separate topics with multiple quizzes. There are several mock CCAT exams. There are wonderfully clear and well-explained solutions for every single question in the course. I also enjoyed the recommended extra resources that had lots of tips and tricks.

    My biggest problem is that I couldn’t calm down enough to keep my head with the pressure of the time constraint. I needed to raise my confidence with extra practice so that I would be less jittery and anxious. By the time I had completed all the mock exams, my score was improving consistently.

    I did the UCAT and a CCAT for my job application. They were easier than the mock exams that I had practiced on the 12minprep site. I passed all the two exams. With a score of over 80% in both! It wasn’t hard, I was simply not fast enough as I take a second to digest the info. That’s just me. Unfortunately, the job I wanted required a score of 90% and although I was among the top 9% applicants, I did not achieve the required score for my dream job. That said, my score of 84 was enough for another job and so I am proceeding with that.

    All in all, this course was extremely helpful and useful and worth every coin.

    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.

  36. Alan Hunt
      July 30, 2020 at 8:05 PM

    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!

  37. Lauren Ferra
      July 30, 2020 at 2:58 PM

    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!

  38. Sheila Keltsch
      July 27, 2020 at 4:07 PM

    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.

    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!

      June 25, 2020 at 8:19 PM

    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.

    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.

        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.

    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.

    Course material and mock tests are well designed with thoughtful solution explanations. This plus Gideon’s personalized coaching style differentiate his training from other trainers. If you can only pick one trainer, make him your choice.

      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.

  59. 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.

    Thank you.

    This is a really good well-structured course that I can recommend to any candidate who is going to take any CCAT test. And the coaching session was really good to get to know the gaming strategy that we need to adapt to crack the test. Highly Recommended.

    This course really helped me prepare for the CCAT and I would not have scored above the required level if it hadn’t been for this course and Gideon. He was very available and helped me to focus on weak areas as well as prepare for the test. I highly recommend this course!

    Hi, i did google for a couple of resources and decided for this one. I am impressed by the trainer and content. The free course was very helpful and I almost only paid for the full course to say thank you. If you are in the same situation as me and you have to do the CCAT for a new job then look no further…

  66. Archit Kumar

    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!

    Fully recommend to take this prep before CCAT.

    Great site for CCAT preparation. It helped me to be in the top 5% of the applicants. I found a few bugs in these tests, reported those and the response was very fast. I recommend this course if you need to do a CCAT test.

        December 17, 2019 at 5:50 PM

      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

  74. Kristen Frank

    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.

    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.

    Amazing, relevant and easy to understand course.
    MUST start with the free introduction course for best results.
    I managed to hit about 70% mark in 2 weeks preparation but better allow as much time as possible.
    The team is very responsive and professional and I can’t wait to work with them again.

    Scored in the 90th percentile on actual test, was very pleased. I didn’t have time for the lessons so I only took 2 of the practice tests, they did a really nice job practicing question types and getting me in a rhythm for the actual test.
