Hi,
I was trying out a sample test today (November 5) and the 11th and 12th questions that had to do with numerla reasoning just seemed strange to me. The question basically consists of a table with information about spending on R&R for four different countries that also includes their GDP per head figures. The first two questions ask about ratios between GDP's of different countries and the correct answers — which I found out after multiple trials — are just very strange with regards to the given data. Did anyone have a similar experience? Maybe I just misread something, although I did look at the question and table data very closely (left a message after the test for the reviewer in case there actually is a mistake in there).

You need to understand percentages; to be able to quickly guess/estimate calculations; but mostly you just need to be able to understand how the data given correlates to one another and what the questions actually want from you. There are almost always at least two operations necessary to answer a question correctly and more often than not there is a simple and a more complicated way of achieving that result.
