    Dear forum members,

    I have been trying to practice some perceptual ability questions this past week. It has been going pretty well, but it seems to me that some question really do have more than one answer and that the scaling is sometimes way off. On the actual test, is the scaling going to be in order or sometimes distorted?

    Thanks in advance!

    Scaling seems to be in order. I noticed on the DAT that the shapes given are often more abstract (more sides or whatever) but the answers were more distinct from each other.

    There will be only 1 correct answer per question. It may same like there are 2, but you have to notice the subtle differences (number of sides in a shape, angle elevation, ect.) and try to avoid trap answers.

    The answers choices are more easily able to be differentiated on the real thing, but the structures may can be complex at times.
