The Bennett mechanical comprehension test is a psychological aptitude test in engineering that is designed to measure one’s mechanical intelligence, ability to interpret technical drawings, understand diagrams of technical devices and their work, and solve engineering tasks.
This test is destined to detect technical abilities of adolescents (12 and over) and adults. It includes 70 tasks that require technical problem solving. In each task test subjects should choose the correct answer out of 3.
The test time is about 30 minutes.
Spanish language was added.
Ratings and Reviews
It is cool to see how you perform compared to others who also took this test... But there is no explanation as to why which answer is correct (so not much of a learning opportunity here).
Also, some of the illustrations are downright confusing when compared to other tests/apps out there.
It is obvious English is not the mother tongue of the app author, lots of grammar and spelling mistakes, which unfortunately leads me to trust this app very little. This is a big deal for me, since my sole purpose is to prepare for a job interview.
And finally, there are only 70 questions. For $2 I purchased another app that has 10x more questions, complete with explanations, and overall quality is vastly superior. For kicks and giggles this is a fun little time waster, for those prepping for an exam, don't bother (unless it is free).
Poorly Designed Questions
About 10% of the questions have significant problems in them where diagrams and language can be interpreted in different ways. Some questions have no correct answer and others have incorrect answers marked correctly.
At first I was really impressed with the app. I didn't realize that the app only has a (1, single) 70 question test. I hope it is the test I'm about to get or at least close to it lol
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
