That's not really an aptitude test.

Not necessarily. There are recurring question types that one can prime himself for, but which nevertheless would measure aptitude of someone who has no background.

Nonsense. A test is a test, no matter its purpose - so there are always factors unrelated to aptitude that skew the testing results (e.g nervousness, distraction, lack of sustenance or sleep, the occasional off-day, unfamiliarity with style of questioning, etc.). Testing tips are designed to keep the influence of those factors at a minimum.

Are you talking about the ASVAB? Because the point of the test is to see which job you would be best suited for.
