The Roland Berger analytical test is a classical IQ test, consisting of different parts. This is how it looks like:


1. Verbal Part
1.1 Complete incomplete sentences
1.2 Analogies (Hat:Head --> Shoe:?)
1.3 Finding categories (6 items are given, can be clubbed into 3 categries)

2. Numerical Part
2.1 Mental math, solving equations
2.2 Complete number sequences
2.3 Fill operators into given equations

3. Figural Part
3.1 put together disassembled figures
3.2 Turn dices
3.3 Matrices

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Sidi

Hi,

there is a sample RB analytical test available here:
https://survey.rolandberger.com/inq/s.app?A=9uYMF1Lh

The live test is very similar to this one, i.e. you have to be good with ratios, growth rates, graph interpretation, pattern recognition and linear algebra.

Best regards

Jakob
