A good programmer can do in three months
what a poor programmer cannot do in a lifetime.
The Language-Free Programmer/Analyst Aptitude Test (LPAT) is a web-scored,
test designed for use in selecting trainee, entry-level, and more advanced
personnel. It asks tough,
realistic questions requiring reasoning, problem solving, computer math/algebra, understanding assignments, and following
but does not ask questions about any specific computer language. In that way the LPAT
measures aptitude or potential rather than knowledge of syntax or commands.
