How to prepare for the Non-Technical Assessment

This resource will cover how to prepare for the first step in App Academy's admissions process for the Software Engineer Track.


The first step in our admissions process is a 30-minute non-technical assessment, which includes a personality profile, logical reasoning test, and typing assessment. You will have two attempts at this assessment. So don’t worry if you don’t pass the first time. The best thing you can do is prepare yourself as much as possible, and make sure you take the test when you have time to set aside that will be free of distractions.

Logical Reasoning Test

Typing Test

  • This step takes 1 minute.
  • Candidates receive two chances to pass this test.
  • We want to see that your typing speed is fast enough to keep up with the pace of the course.
  • Practice your typing skills here or on many other free typing speed sites.

Personality Profile

  • This step takes about 15 minutes. 
  • You cannot be eliminated for your answers to this questionnaire. It’s a way for us to better get to know candidates.
  • Please fill this out thoughtfully. Candidates who fill out the profile erratically or excessively quickly may be asked to retake it.
