Just took this quick and dirty without using a calculator. You're instructed NOT to use a calculator. You honestly do not need one actually.

They say if you get either a QB or a Lineman--You have a better ability to learn quicker. The Wonderlic is a lot tougher than people think because of the time limit.

I think I read somewhere getting a 28+ is considered great. Highest score marked was a 50/50.

Ryan Fitzpatrick got a 48.

Am I supposed to use a calculator for this?  
  I'm terrible at arithmetic in the head, got a 34 though.  Need to retake in a prepared state.

That's a lot tougher than I thought - especially the ones about days of the week for me.

I only had 20s left - and throughout school and college I never ran out of time on a test.

i don't think anyone gets through every question. designed to see how far you can actually get though. don't believe people are expected to get through all of them

No, you're not supposed to use a calculator.


Are they given a calculator or like a pen and paper when they take it?
They're given a pencil and paper, no calculator

I got through all of them, but I had about 10 seconds left. I sent this quiz to a few co-workers of mine and they were able to get through all the questions too. Some one got a 49 :lol:

took the short one, just fyi
You'll get a lower score if you take the shorter quiz, because each question has a larger weight.

Take the full quiz everyone.

I had to use a pencil and paper - almost everyone would struggle without that.

You don't need a pencil and paper either. I rounded up/down with most of the mathematical questions. I did use a pencil and paper for a few questions, and that took away valuable time.
