Oliver Wyman Critical Reasoning Test

Does anyone have any experience on this test? Is this a regular SHL Verbal Reasoning test? Apparently the test will run for about 10 mins, so not sure what they will test actually.

Hi anon!

No, the Oliver Wyman is not a standard SHL test - it is one of the toughest maths/logic tests in my experience. The biggest difficulty typically is getting through the questions in the time given - although the 10 minutes you're quoting doesn't sound right to me! It should be 20 minutes for 30 multiple choice questions, unless things have changed this year.

Here's a helpful page on PrepLounge about the assessment: https://www.preplounge.com/en/tests/oliver-wyman-test

And a helpful video that covers a few (actual!) Oliver Wyman test questions from previous years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fSYgKESqFA

Finally, the GMAT is anecdotally very similar, so you can practice a few of those to guage how you'd fare.

Best of luck!

Thanks Kay - sat for this test, actually it was 10 mins. Think its different from country to country - my country seems to put less emphasis on the Critical Reasoning test. Many thanks for your help though! — Anonym A am 10. Nov 2019

Oliver Wyman Case: Einrichtung eines Weinkellers

46,4 Tsd. mal gelöst
Oliver Wyman Case: Einrichtung eines Weinkellers Ich denke darüber nach, in meinem Keller einen Weinkeller ein-zurichten. So wie ich das sehe, würde man die Regalfläche in zwei Bereiche aufteilen: (1) einen "Trink"-Bereich, in dem ich Flaschen für den Eigenverbrauch lagere, und (2) einen "Investitions"-Bereich, in dem ich Flaschen lagere, die ich mit Gewinn verkaufen möchte, nachdem sie in einigen Jahren an Wert gewonnen haben. Meine Idee ist es, mit dem "Investitions"-Bereich des Kellers genug Geld zu verdienen, um das, was ich im "Trink"-Bereich verbrauche, mit der Zeit zu finanzieren. Natürlich bin ich durch mehrere Dinge ein-geschränkt: die Menge an Geld, die ich ausgeben kann, die Menge an Wein, die ich trinken kann (oder will), den verfügbaren Platz im Keller und so weiter.
