Nice to Meet You

Gideon, Founder at 12 Minutes

Former Director and VP at test prep companies, ex-teacher and private tutor.
Knows pre-employment cognitive ability tests inside out. Passionate about helping you succeed.

Exclusive Coaching session included:

When you buy my course, you get a one-on-one, 20-minute Skype session with me!

In this session, we will go over some of your tests to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and to equip you with winning tips that will maximize your score potential. 

In addition, I’ll help you cope with the stress and answer any other questions you have regarding  PI Cognitive Assessment practice.


Drill Down Into Each PI Cognitive Assessment Section

Three out of six lessons in this course are dedicated to the main cognitive ability subsections of the PI Cognitive Assessment test:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning

These three lessons are packed with sample questions and solving strategies that will help you understand the different question styles that show up on the test.


Take a Free Sample Test in Lesson 6

Lesson 6, which is free of charge, includes a PI Cognitive Assessment sample test  (30 questions, 8 minutes) that will help you spot your weaknesses before taking the 3 full-length mock tests. This mini assessment comes with a detailed score report and with explanations per question.


Learn about PI Cognitive Assessment Scores

Lesson 1 reviews everything you need to know about your PI Cognitive Assessment score. You will learn:

  • What are Percentile and Raw Scores
  • What is the average score on the PI test
  • Your rights as a candidate

Learn How to Prepare for PI Cognitive Assessment

Lesson 2 provides tips on how to prepare for the assessment, with different tactics provided per each case, whether you do or do not have a lot of time before the real PI Cognitive Assessment.


Take 3 PI Cognitive Assessment Practice Tests

Our prep course provides 3 full-length mock tests that follow the format and content of the PI cognitive assessment, also known as the PILI test (formerly known as the PLI test). Each test includes 50 questions and lasts 12 minutes.

Upon submission, you will receive a detailed score report that will analyze your performance per each topic and question type, allowing you to better understand your weak spots that require further improvement. In addition, the test benchmarks you against all other candidates who took the test before, which gives you an excellent prediction of where you stand in comparison to the general population of employed workers. And most importantly, you get answers and explanations per each question. 

Preparing for PI Cognitive Assessment is a Must!

Do you know that by preparing for the PI Cognitive Assessment you are getting closer to your maximum score potential? This is acknowledged by the test publishers. Please refer to this official Predictive Index FAQ file (page 6/8), which specifically says (quote):


it is actually ideal when an assessment taker is trained or familiar with the PI Learning Indicator item types, as it gives the company the best possible insight into the candidate’s true potential 

What can we learn from this? That by preparing for the PI Cognitive Assessment you are making sure to perform at your best, which is exactly what your employer is looking for! 

In addition, there are thousands of employers who’re using the Predictive Index in their hiring process, and thousands of other employers who use a similar version of a cognitive ability test (e.g. Wonderlic). If you’re planning a multi-application job hunt journey, then preparing for this assessment could help you with other applications and save precious time.

    Gideon has created a mind-blowing tool. My first attempt, I crashed and burned miserably. By my last attempt, I was scoring with over the high 66%. This was entirely due to Gideon’s expert tools, advice and technical tools within his software. Gideon is not only brilliant but also a natural mentor and has a keen ability to crystalize learning in such a brilliant, yet remarkably simple concepts. This course is worth every penny and Gideon is a genius!!
    100% Satisfaction Guarateed. At this point, I’m 300% satisfied. Thank you Gideon!! 08-24-2018

      This course was very helpful. Without this course I would have done very poorly. It showed me my strengths and weaknesses and where I needed to focus my effort. Make sure you get the 20 minute consultation from Gideon he was very helpful in creating an individualized strategy for taking the exam. Thank you Gideon you have created an excellent tool and course.

    This is an excellent course / practice tool for anyone attempting the PLI – I did for Maersk – and has bang on the similar style, so this will prepare you perfectly for the upcoming assessment. In fact tests 2 & 3 are designed to be difficult than the actual PLI (as I found) so they make the assessment pretty easy. I recommend this course to everyone whether due to appear a related test or even if looking for general brain exercise. It was a true value for money!!! Thank you Gideon.

    I took the premium course for 29$. This preparation helped me that much, that I was one of the best candidates who ever took the PI test at this big international company. I would take it again and highly recommend it.

    $29.00??? That’s it?!?! This course was SO GOOD, that I had to purchase it TWICE to show Gideon how VALUABLE this course really was in my performance on the REAL test! As an individual that believed “there’s no way I can study for a standardized test to improve my score,” I was surprised to find that I could not have been MORE wrong! On the first mock exam, I moved so slow that I only completed a TOTAL of 38/50 questions in the 12 minutes and only received a raw score of 22. This was extremely nerve-racking because my recruited told me that his company wouldn’t even consider me as a candidate unless I could score 24 points or higher. However, by the end of the course, I had utilized all of Gideon’s tips/tricks/strategies to comfortably complete all 50 questions in the short 12 minute time frame, while ALSO scoring 30 points! That’s 6 points HIGHER than the threshold score (24) that the recruiter gave me! My favorite part of Gideon’s tests is that he designed them to be MORE difficult than the actual test! I can confirm this because I took the real test yesterday and scored 33 points! His course has been life-changing for me and my family. Because of this course, I will now have the opportunity to switch careers and possibly double or even triple my annual salary! Thank you again to Gideon and the team at! #GODsend #ThankYouJesus

    This course is a must for anybody who wants to get qualified for their prospective employer’s intial rounds.These tests really helped me to strategise and get the desired cut offs.I hardly had 2 days time to give my real exam but this course turned as a life saver .I too felt that the test is designed tougher as compared to the real test which i appeared.Thanks to Gideon and his team for providing something so useful.Really enjoyed the preparation process.Money worth spending

    I was in a panic when I was only given 48 hours to take the PI Cognitive Assessment test for a job I applied for. I was not prepared at all! I found Gideon’s course online. For only $29 I went for it. I did a practice test and failed miserably!!! So I signed up for Gideon’s course. I had to cram for 24 hours straight as I approached my deadline. After taking the sample test, I had a consultation with Gideon. He looked at my scores. He saw my strengths and weaknesses. He coached me on how to proceed since I was out of time. Taking his advice, I took the sample tests 1 and 2. I did well! Really well! I waited until the morning to take the third one and right before I had to take the REAL thing. I came just below average on the third test. However, it was really hard. I went for it! I don’t know how I did yet. However, I was able to answer all 50 questions with time to go back and work on those areas I was weak in. I was able to answer three additional questions that I only guessed on. I fixed them because I had time to work out the problems on paper. It was totally worth the $29. Even if I don’t get picked for an interview. It was still worth it. If I get an interview, the course is priceless! Thanks, Gideon.

    This is really what you need to prepare for the real online PI test. It was designed carefully and in abundant details so that you will be equipped with sufficient tools, knowledge and capacity to deal with the real test. Gideon also provided me with very good tactics to maximize my score. Thanks to it, I successfully conquered the real test and was invited to the HR interview round. My advice: you really don’t have to think twice to take the course!

    I found out about Gideon’s course a few hours before I had to take the test. It was well worth the $29. It helped me identify my weaknesses and strengths. With enough time and practice, you can ace the actual test using the material he provides.

    Can’t say enough about the benefit of this program. Took a previous score in the low 20’s to a 41 and 99th percentile after taking the course. The course and practice tests were great, the 1-on-1 video conference with Gideon took it to the next level. He did a great job in helping me understand where I was falling short and where I was doing well. The strategy session completely changed the way I took the test and was a game changer in helping me reach my potential on the test. Thanks Gideon for offering such a great course, providing great advice and for your encouragement. Anyone taking this test needs to take this course!

    I found the real test was very close to mock tests. The catch is to discuss your performance with Gideon on face to face Skype session. It will let you know your strengths and weakness, which question you have to answer and in which question you have to make an educated guess. This course is a must for all who are going to appear in the online tests.

    Gideon’s course is an incredible value for $29. I had less than 48 hours to prepare for my PI assessment, and this course was laser-focused on how to do better on test through practice and score-maximizing techniques. To use a baseball analogy, this course was akin to being on deck with a heavy donut on your bat…then kicking off the donut when you got to the plate…and swinging away with amazing confidence and accuracy! That may sound cheesy, but it was completely the case with me. It was money VERY well spent. Thank you, Gideon!

    Really worth it! I got my PI test Friday, practiced Saturday and at night I wrote Gideon about 20 min consultation and he answered right away and was flexible to speak 20 min Sunday morning where we discussed my strength and weekness and how my strategy should be. I practiced with the new strategy on the mock tests and did the real test Sunday afternoon. The real test felt easier and I got amazing results.

      Dear Justin,
      Very sorry to hear you’re disappointed (you’re my first bad review!). You signed up at 3:45am and wrote this review 90 minutes later. Whatever happened during those 90 minutes, I am sure it has a fix. I contacted you just a few hours after you left this review and offered my help, but you didn’t reply.

      In any case, I’ve refunded your purchase fully. You’re welcome to contact me and I’m sure you’ll be able to access all materials with no problem at all.

    This course is a good guide to help in preparation of PI assessment. I took this course which also contained detailed guidance about how to approach these tests and I could do significantly better each time. I would recommend it to other people who are looking forward to take cognitive tests from PI as a part of their interview process.

    Great test prep material as the tests are considerably more difficult than the real thing so you can breeze through the actual test with confidence. Also, the chat with Gideon was helpful. He was really flexible and responsive to short turnarounds too. Highly recommend.

    Hi All,

    I had one day to prepare for the assessment. I enrolled in this course in the morning, went quickly through the material, and then focussed on completing all of the practice tests. I scored 27 on my first test and then got into the mid 30s for the subsequent ones.

    Bottom line for me was to skip questions I am weaker at and then go back to them later. I did the actual assessment at the end of the day and i got a score of 40. The actual assessment is easier than the sample tests. One thing that surprised me was that at the end of the test I was expecting to be able to review my answers and make changes but once you click submit it is over. I still had about 2 minutest left to review but it was over!

    In any event, I recommend this course to practice the stress of answering 50 questions in 12 minutes. I didn’t find it necessary to have a personal coaching session.

    Good luck!

    This helped me so much to prepare for the exam, I just wish I had more time as practice really does make perfect. I had only a weekend worth of notice and I also had lots of social plans so I was nervous but this prep is invaluable in helping you realise which questions to focus on and which to give an educated guess and hope for the best! Thank you Gideon!

    Thanks Gideon, This course helped me get a 90 percentile score on the PLI. The tips on Skype were great. I can’t recommend this course enough for preparing to take the PLI. It’s worth it everyone!

      February 7, 2019 at 5:17 PM

    It was absolutely worth it. Bought the course, took Gideons lectures and tested myself with the Full-length Mock Tests. They were challenging but I improved a lot. At the end I took the PLI exam according to my current application, got a high score and an offer. Thank you very much, Gideion, for your wonderful and inspiring material.

    The material and mentorship are more than worth it. I had 5 days to prepare for the Cognitive Assessment. I bought Gideon’s material online on a Thursday, contacted Gideon on a Friday, had 1:1 skype sessions with him over the weekend, in the meantime I deep dived into the lessons and mock tests during Friday to Monday and on Tuesday I was able to get a remarkable official test. And at the end I got the job! I felt guided and mentored all the time. This small but very significant detail impacted in my knowledge, confidence and speed. Thank you Gideon. No words are enough!

    Can’t recommend this package enough – the tips were really simple but very useful and practical and Gideon took his time over the Skype session to really advice and calm me down as well. It really makes a difference!! I passed the test and my feedback was that I did really well!

    I will gladly recommend this package for anyone that wants to take a PI Test. The drills totally paid off and Gideon during the Skype session really took his time to explains and educate me more on the PI test. His advice was really worth it and I appreciate his effort! I passed my test😁

    I have no words to say other than recommending this course. This really helped me in securing the job. I had 20 min support call with Gideon, I must say that without his advise I would not have cleared. It is really valuable. I only focused his full course and test practise / advise and got 26. This is truly valuable and I really thankful to Gideon for his great effort in providing this service.

    Excellent practice. I took the final PLI and ofcourse, don’t know my score. However, it’s important to point out that the official test does not have a count down timer… so you come to know the time elapsed only when you move to the next page..that was disconcerting as I was not prepared with a separate timer. Overall, I found Gideon’s course very useful and valuable in helping me prepare for the PLI. Thanks Gideon for calling me on Skype and giving me the last minute encouragement to calm my nerves! I hope I have done well!

    I scored 41/50 on the actual PI cognitive test. This is in the 99th percentile of the world and I really owe it to this course for helping me maximize my score potential. I spent one sunday evening answering the sample exams 6x, studying to perfect the numerical and verbal parts (completely ignored the abstract part which i felt would take too long for me to learn). I started w/ a score of 27. By the end of 6 practice tests, i scored 38. And of course in the actual test I scored 41. Thanks so much to 12minprep! Totally worth it. The materials are both efficient and effective.
