Overview

Self-Scoring IQ Tests by Victor Serebriakoff

Honorary International President of MENSA Victor Serebriakoff has created two comprehensive tests—similar to the elaborate standardized ones administered by professional psychologists—perfectly designed to measure your cognitive skills, reasoning abilities, quick-learning capability, and problem-solving proficiency. Begin with the practice quizzes to warm up, and then proceed to the actual tests, which concentrate on verbal, mathematical, and spatial relations questions. At the end of the booklet, you’ll find the right answers and an explanation of how to determine your IQ from your scores. There are also tables that convert your results into a percentage rating so you can assess where you fall in the general population.

I give it a high rating primarily because of its consistency with scores obtained on three other IQ tests.  I got a scaled score of 204, and hence an IQ score of 131 on Test A in the booklet (apparently it follows a standard deviation of 15).  I obtained a 128 on the Otis-Lennon School Abilities Test (Standard Deviation= 16) when I was 8 years old (now 26), a 36 on the Wonderlic (which roughly translates into an IQ score of 132, unknown standard deviation)), and got the minimum score to qualify on the Mensa Admission Test (so a 130 or 132  depending on whether you follow a standard deviation of 15 or 16).  My only problem with the test is the high weight it gives Verbal (three times), but Verbal is heavily based on knowledge or cultural exposure rather than native intelligence.  If you disagree though, you could modify the weights yourself by according Verbal a weight of one, and Spatial and Numerical each a weight of two; it still results in a maximum scaled score of 250 either way, so it won't throw off the accuracy of converting scaled score to IQ.

It is 30 minutes per section, 6 sections = 3 hours.  Plus practice questions for the first 3 sections add about 10-15 minutes each,  so add another 30-45 minutes.  You do want to do the practice questions before starting each section, it will improve your score a lot  and you won't need to waste time reading the rules for the real questions.  I'd give yourself 4 hours if you wanted to take it in one sitting. If you're like me, you want to score each section after you did it, in which case if you want to do it in one sitting, give yourself 6 hours.   I'm halfway done with the test, and I do one section at a time as free time comes up.

Can someone tell me how much time is allotted for the test

I scored +/-5 the average of various other IQ tests, so it's fairly reliable. The reviewers stating that they/whoever received an IQ +145 are lying. The test's ceiling is at 144.

I have had my IQ testted by a psychologest and it is 107, this book had it at 124. It is kind of fun to take.

I've been curious as to what my IQ has been for a couple of months now. The tests that I have found online were not worthwhile or extensive. This thing is $4 and completly worth it. It was a night for nerdy fun for me! The real test of your IQ is going to be a test given by an educational psychologist. By the way -- I have found 2 inaccuries. One is SA40 (wrong answer). The other is SB40 (right answer, wrong reasoning). Also on some of the 'target' problems -- the text is too small. it's hard to tell, at least in my book, the difference between 6's and 8's.

I am a teacher of gifted and talented children. My gifted (but certainly not genius) 10-year-old students are coming up with IQ scores of 165+ on the second test! There is obviously something wrong!
