The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT) is the most widely used and trusted assessment of mechanical aptitude. This instrument has demonstrated consistent reliability and validity in helping organizations select the best candidates for mechanical, technical and industrial occupations for over 50 years.


Assessment Description

With a focus on spatial perception and tool knowledge rather than manual dexterity, the BMCT is especially well-suited for assessing job candidates for positions that require a grasp of the principles underlying the operation and repair of mechanical devices.

An individual who scores well on the BMCT demonstrates an aptitude for learning mechanical skills.

The ability to apply mechanical information, spatial visualization, and mechanical reasoning in answering BMCT questions is a predictor of employee success.
