About Beat the WonderlicThe Wonderlic Tests have become some of the most widely used (and most feared)examinations administered in recent years. It is no secret that the world economy hasstruggled to regain its strength since the epic collapse of the housing market in 2008.Given the wounded economy, companies have had to scale back their hiring, makingthe hiring process riskier and costlier. Corporations that may have hired 3 or 4 newemployees are now only hiring 1.These corporations have turned to the suite of Wonderlic tests to help themdetermine which 1 candidate they should hire by paring down the applicant pool withcognitive and basic skills tests. Applicants who test poorly can have their applicationseasily, and (in the eyes of corporations) justifiably discarded.
