If you’re taking the P&G Online Assessment (whether it’s the PEAK assessment or the Interactive challenges) and want to get some practice beforehand, you have a few options in front of you:

YouTube videos, generic prep sites, and accurate practice simulations of the test.

Today, we’ll focus on the last one and examine how realistic they really are, compared to the actual P&G assessment.

We’ll be looking at three things:

  • Accuracy: how similar it is to the real test in terms of format, structure, question types, and time constraints.
  • The number of practice questions and other prep resources: because you want to get an abundance of practice questions and not just a handful of them.
  • Level of explanations: test preparation is never perfect if it doesn’t show you how to get the questions right and learn from your mistakes.

So, without further ado, let’s jump right to the review and see if it’s worth your time and your money.

We’ve divided the P&G Assessment into four different tests, similar to the real assessment and as it appears on JobTestPrep’s practice pack that we’re reviewing.

For each of the tests, we’ll go over the three review criteria mentioned above and add screenshots and data from the practice pack.

P&G PEAK Performance Assessment

  • Accuracy: 9.5/10
  • Number of practice questions and other prep resources: 4 PEAK assessment-style practice tests, 24 additional practice tests, five study guides
  • Level of explanations: 10/10

Accuracy

In 2022, JobTestPrep updated its PEAK performance assessment practice, making it as similar as possible to the real thing.

The PEAK Performance Assessment is comprised of Situational Judgment and Personality tests, which include multiple-choice and rating questions.

Let’s see how the real questions resemble the practice ones.

The following image is a question from the actual test:

And this is a question from JobTestPrep’s practice pack:

The main idea of the questions is identical and the answer choices resemble each other, even though the wording is different (to avoid copyright issues).

Here’s an example of a rating question from the actual test:

procter-and-gamble-peak-assessment-sample-rating-question

And this is one of the rating practice questions:

procter-and-gamble-peak-assessment-sample-rating-practice-question

The scale on the real assessment is 1 to 5 and on the practice tests it’s 1 to 7. Also, the wording of the answer choices is different.

Despite that, as the real rating test and the practice test are both classic personality tests, they measure similar traits. So, even though the wording and format are different, it will still be beneficial to practice these tests to get an edge on the assessment.

Because of these minor differences, we gave it a 9.5 score on the accuracy scale.

Number of Practice Questions and Other Prep Resources

There are four practice tests that resemble the actual assessment (divided into its specific question types) and they’re coupled with two dedicated study guides.

Additionally, there are six Situational Judgment practice tests and 18 personality practice tests with rating questions. The longest one is 219 questions long (!) and the shorter ones are about 15-question long. These practice tests also have two study guides that accompany them.

Here’s a snippet from the practice pack. The PEAK assessment-style tests are highlighted:

pg-peak-assessment-practice-screenshot-jobtestprep
Source: JobTestPrep

So overall, you get a massive number of practice questions.

Level of Explanations

At the end of each practice test, you receive a score report:

procter-and-gamble-peak-assessment-practice-sample-score-report

If you click on any of the question numbers, you’ll see a full explanation for the question, which is thorough and goes over each of the answer choices.

The explanations not only walk you through the logic behind the solution, but they also align it with the P&G values and PEAK Performance Factors, making it highly relevant and useful.

That’s why the explanations received a perfect score of 10.

P&G Switch Challenge

  • Accuracy: 10/10
  • Number of practice questions and other prep resources: Infinite Switch Challenge style practice questions, two study guides (one for the advanced double-layer questions), and one extra practice test with 25 questions.
  • Level of explanations: 10/10

Accuracy

This is how the questions look on the real assessment (taken from the official P&G PDF):

procter-and-gamble-switch-challenge-example

And here’s how JobTestPrep’s Switch Challenge practice questions look:

procter-and-gamble-switch-challenge-practice-question-example

As you can see, except for minor design differences, it’s practically the same, and even has a similar green time bar that’s counting backward.

Additionally, the time limit for each of the practice sessions is identical to the real test (6 minutes).

Important: the practice tests have the same adaptivity concept as the real assessment does. If you answer a question correctly, the next one will be harder, until you reach the two-layer questions. And if you answer a question wrong, the next one will be easier (usually it resets to a one-layer question).

Number of Practice Questions and Other Prep Resources

The number of Switch Challenge practice questions is infinite, as they say here: “Please note that this is an algorithm-based test, so the number of questions you can practice is endless. Every time you start the test, you will get new questions.”

We tested it several times and every time we started a new practice session, the numbers, shapes, and sequences order were different.

So, this is legit. You can practice as many times as you want and you’ll get endless question combinations.

Other than that, there are additional prep resources:

  • Dedicated 10-page study guide for the advanced level questions, which are mainly the two-layer questions:
procter-and-gamble-switch-challenge-practice-guide
  • Extra practice test with 25 questions that focuses on the cut-e Deductive-logical test (the Switch Challenge is based on this test). If you still have time and want to fine-tune your skills, you can give it a go. This practice test is accompanied by a study guide:


Level of Explanations

The explanations for the Switch Challenge practice questions come in two forms.

The first is interactive explanations that illustrate the solution:

procter-and-gamble-switch-challenge-practice-sample-solution

And the second is text-based explanations:

procter-and-gamble-switch-challenge-sample-solution

Overall, the explanations are clear and thorough. The illustration option is easier to digest though, as we found that the text-based explanations are a bit more complex to understand without seeing the solution visually.

But even if you have zero experience with these question types, the explanations will bring you up to speed and help you get more questions right.

P&G Grid Challenge

  • Accuracy: 10/10
  • Number of practice questions and other prep resources: Infinite Grid Challenge style practice questions and a study guide.
  • Level of explanations: None specific

Accuracy

The practice questions are almost identical to what you see on the real P&G Grid Challenge and there are only small design differences.

We’ll go over the various components of the challenge so you’ll see how the practice test and the real assessment resemble (on the left it’s the real assessment and on the right, it’s the practice test).

And at the end of each round, you’ll have the “recall” section, in which you need to recall the dots in the order of their appearance:

procter-and-gamble-grid-challenge-practice-example

The time constraints are also similar, with 9 minutes on the real assessment and 9 minutes on every practice session.

Number of Practice Questions and Other Prep Resources

As with the Switch Challenge practice, the Grid Challenge practice also has an infinite number of practice questions. So every time you start a session, you’ll get different dot grids and spatial awareness questions.

We assume that the number of “combination” spatial questions (where you need to add or subtract grids) can’t be really endless. But it does have at least a few dozens to hundreds of variations.

Additionally, there’s an 8-page study guide that accompanies these practice tests.

Level of Explanations

Because of the nature of this assessment (quick memorization, spatial, and recall question), there are no explanations for every question.

Instead, you’ll see a score report at the end of each practice session:

procter-and-gamble-grid-challenge-sample-score-report

You can find useful solving techniques and strategies in the study guide that comes with the practice tests.

Ultimately, it sums up to practicing as many questions as you can (and there’s an infinite number of them) until you master this challenge.

P&G Digit Challenge

  • Accuracy: 10/10
  • Number of practice questions and other prep resources: Infinite Digit Challenge style practice questions, 8 additional math practice tests, and two study guides
  • Level of explanations: No explanations for the interactive questions. 9/10 for the additional math tests.

Accuracy

The questions on the real assessment and on the practice test are almost the same:

Left – real test, right – practice test

The trash bin icon was replaced with a “clear” button and the design is a bit different. Other than that, it’s identical.

Also, the time limit for each session is almost identical: 6 minutes on the real test and 5 minutes on the practice tests.

Important: the practice tests have the same adaptivity concept as the real assessment does. If you answer a question correctly, the next one will be harder, until you reach the most advanced questions. Here’s an example for a more advanced question:

procter-and-gamble-digit-challenge-advanced-example

If you answer a question wrong, the next one will be easier (usually it resets to the first or second difficulty level).

Number of Practice Questions and Other Prep Resources

Once you start the practice session, you’ll see a menu in which you need to choose whether you’d like to try a full simulation or a beginner/advanced level:

procter-and-gamble-digit-challenge-practice-simulation

On each of these three simulation options, the number of questions is infinite. This means that every time you start a new session, you’ll see different equations.

Also, there’s an 8-page study guide that focuses on the advanced level questions and provides useful techniques for solving them fast.

Other than that, there are additional 8 math practice tests (with around 20 questions per test) and a study guide that enable you to practice more basic math problems. This can be useful in case you haven’t touched math for years and need to brush up on your skills.

Level of Explanations

The interactive Digit Challenge style practice questions don’t have any explanations. When you finish a practice test, you’ll see a score report like this one:

procter-and-gamble-digit-challenge-practice-sample-score-report

We assume that the reason they don’t provide explanations is that every question has several different solution options and it would be impossible to cover all these endless answer combinations.

That being said, if you’d like to see actual explanations, you can use the study guides and the additional practice tests. They have decent explanations for each and every question.

The Verdict

This was an in-depth review of JobTestPrep’s P&G Online Assessment practice.

Overall, it’s an excellent preparation kit and it’s clear that they have invested lots of thought and effort in its development.

The interactive test practice (for the Switch, Grid, and Digit challenges) is almost identical to the real thing. And combined with thorough explanations for many of the practice questions, it’s by far the best product on the market.

The PEAK Performance Assessment practice was updated in 2022 and highly resembles the questions of the test. The detailed explanations and study guides are also helpful and show you the process of answering the assessment questions.
