Hi guys, really just wondering if anyone would like to work through some sample questions together?
I doubt many people left still need to take it since there's only one date left but I had to postpone mine thanks to getting covid right before the last date.
I've been looking at prep sites and other resources; just wondering if anyone might like to link up and criticize each others answers to sample questions since there's lots of places to find questions but not much out there for feedback.
Reply here or message me directly if you'd be interested!

Hey guys! Thought I would share some tips on what helped me feel confident when writing my CASPeR test. I recently took it on January 5th. I made sure I organized my prep well in advance, about a month before. Some resources I used:
- PrepMatch - free online service that allows you to practice very similar scenarios to ones you are given on the actual test. I started by doing them without the timer to work through my own traits and ways I best answer questions. I would also review others answers which helped me gain more perspectives on the same questions. I then did them timed so I became comfortable with answering questions under stressful circumstances.
- I went through scenarios with my family, to gain different perspectives from people from different occupations and generations!
- I reflected on past experiences in jobs, so that I could relate to scenarios in which I had similar experiences in a professional environment. I asked myself what I did well in these situations and what I could have done better.
- You can use a consulting service if you think that will really help you, but remember these services charge you by the hour, and while it can be helpful to get someone else's advice, it is definitely not feasible for long-term prep. Instead, I think the characteristics that come from your own real-life experiences will help you create strong answers for the test! Remember, the markers want to see your true traits and how you can show those traits in a variety of dilemmas that have a core issue that you have probably come across before!
I used a combination of PrepMatch and FutureMeMD. I practiced around 50-60 scenarios on PrepMatch, read the feedback I got on them (which was surprisingly very helpful!!!!). Learned to handle my nerves that way. Then I did 5 hours of CASPer prep on FutureMeMD. I felt very confident at the end and got in!!!
