The author clearly explains in the Introduction that this book is not designed to measure one's IQ or Intelligence Quotient, saying "the object of this book is to identify different types of intelligence and bring together tests for different aspects of intelligence into one book...". Although seeing a standardized IQ test might help one understand how they work, a person would not take such IQ tests repeatedly as the primary means of preparing for a proctored exam. What you need is a learning tool like this book. It does not tell you how to do the problems, but it does help you understand which mental skills need improvement. The "how do you do that type of problem" learning is in part made of hard thinking, in part personal creativity and in part reading other books on the subject or asking an expert.
This is an excellent book to understand your capabilities and direct you to areas for improvement of your mental skills. The problems you get wrong are the ones on which to concentrate your effort. In some cases there is more than one answer, such that the single solution shown in the key at the back of the book is not the only right answer. At first this was frustrating, but after finding a handful of these it felt good to know that there is more than one way to skin a cat.
I rate this book five stars.
