Anyone knows what is the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal?
I am considering an MBA program with a B&M university. One of the requisites for admission is a satisfactory score on the GMAT, MAT, GRE or Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal.
I have been preparing to take the GMAT next month, but the school administers the Watson-Glaser for free, and it takes about one hour to complete the test and get the results. Seems like a good deal and I ought to look at it before spending $200+ on the GMAT.
Do any of you have information about that test? I've been searching the Internet for sample questions, but have not been very successful.

My simple seach on google yielded 1500 results. I assume you've gone through those. Beyond that I can only surmise that because it is a proprietary assessment instrument, you will not find "sample questions" anywhere on the net. My best suggestion is to look through the usenet groups related to psychology and psych testing and see if you can throw yourself on the mercy of some psych grad student who would be willing to clue you in to the details of this testing instrument.

| Psychology Degrees |
Psychologists study mental processes and human behavior by observing, interpreting, and recording how people and animals relate to one another and the environment. To do this, psychologists often look for patterns that will help them understand and predict behavior using scientific methods, principles, or procedures to test their ideas. Through such research studies, psychologists have learned much that can help increase understanding between individuals, groups, organizations, institutions, nations, and cultures. •Job opportunities
are naturally best for individuals with higher degrees. Individuals with a doctoral degree are highly sought after, especially ones who holds degrees in a particularly in-demand subfield, such as health; those with a master’s degree will have good prospects in the corporate environment; bachelor’s degree holders will have limited prospects due to steep competition. •Employment growth
will vary by specialty; for example, clinical, counseling, and school psychologists will have 11% growth; industrial-organizational psychologists will have 26% growth; and 14% growth is expected for all other fields of psychology.

Of course not I'm googling for: "Watson Glaser" AND "Critical Thinking Test" plus some other keywords to limit the results. I got 150 and yes, I have looked at all of them. Did you had time to go through those other 1500 results? ;)

The closest hit I get tells me:
I already have a Critical Thinking book, so I won't spend time and money on that one.
We do not supply practice or sample questions of Critical Thinking Test. If you are looking for practice test questions, we recommend the book 'Critical Thinking for Students' by Roy van den Brink-Budgen
Thanks for your other suggestion.
Well, I took the test today and passed. It wasn't difficult, but if you put too much into it (i.e. over-analyze) you'll be in trouble.
Glad I saved money and time by avoiding the other tests.
