INTRODUCTION TO PROSPECTIVE SUBWAY FRANCHISEES FOR INITIAL TESTING The following booklet was developed to help introduce you to the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test. You will be taking this test after you have signed the Acknowledgment of Receipt of the Franchise Disclosure Document and before you proceed with your SUBWAY franchise purchase. About the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test. This is a test of basic verbal (English) and basic quantitative (Math) skills. Your scores will indicate how well you are able to complete every day reading, writing requirements, and math problems. The cumulative test score is used to analyze your ability to operate a SUBWAY franchise. How to Take the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test. •

There are 50 questions on the Verbal Skills Test and 45 questions on the Quantitative Skills Test. You will be given 20 minutes to work on each part. First the verbal, then the quantitative part.

It is unlikely that you will finish all questions, but you should try to answer as many of them as you can. You should not go so fast that you make mistakes, but also, do not spend too much time on any one question.

The questions become more difficult as you progress through the test: therefore, you should not skip around. You will get the best score if you start with the first question and then continue with each question in order.

There are four possible answers for each question, but only one is correct. You will need to choose the answer that you think best solves the question. In a test of this type, it is unlikely that pure guessing will help you. However, if you think you know the answer, but are not certain, mark the answer and move on.

On the Quantitative (math) Skills Test, many questions will require that you do figure work. Do all the figure work in the test booklet. You must do all figure work by yourself. Do not use a calculator or other problem-solving devices.

On the actual test, it is recommended that you mark your answers first on the test booklet and then on the answer sheet. However, only the answers marked on the answer sheet will count in your score. (over)
