Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi there,

    Sorry if this is deemed not worthy of a new thread but i cannot find anything similar.

    The rest of the BARB test I find quite easy but Number Distance is the one which catches me out.

    Any tips to work out the answer quickley?

  2. Practice practice practice.
  3. Yup, practice. I've found doing normal mental arithmetic, not just focussing on these, worked best. Stuff like adding up your shopping when you're in a shop, working out discounts on stuff yourself, that sort of thing. then your brain just gets used to handling numbers.
  4. Try the online BARB Test on ArmyJobs - Potential Soldier Programme.

    This should give you some practice but the bank of questions remain the same if you keep retrying
