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!

there is a sample RB analytical test available here:

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

I would practice leveraging GMAT.

GMAT unfortunately only gets better with practicing. Good news is that there are many ways of doing so!

There are free exams in the internet that you can use for practice (the one of LBS MBA page, Verits prep, as well as some free trials for courses such as the one of The Economist (

Hope it helps!

Dear A,

It's similar to GMAT reasoning test with multiple choice answers. The test is divided into three sections: verbal, numerical and figural.

Also you are not allowed to use a calculator.
