It was probably the S5 test. I will send a copy to Aleksandrs to post on the corememory site.

NCR S-5 Aptitude Test.

'This test is divided into six sections, each of which consists of a group of related problems. Sample problems with proper explanations are given in order to familiarize you with the different types of problems and to asquaint you with a method for solving them. You probably will find some of the problems quite easy and others more difficult. You are expected to put forth your best effort on each problem.

There are a few general rules for taking this test that will help you to earn the best score: Work carefully and accurately. Do not spend too much time on any problem you find particularly difficult. Mark the problem that you skip, leave it until last, and then go on to the next problem. In doing this you will make best use of your time. If you work at an average speed you will have sufficient time to read, analyze and solve all the problems.

Make your calculations in the spaces provided in the test booklet. Be sure you copy your answers correctly into the designated spaces.

Do you have any questions?

Fill in the data asked for on the inside of the cover page, and begin your test by reading the instructions immediately below.

Ready? Good luck! Begin!'

Thanks to Ian Ormerod, an NCR S-5 Aptitude Test has been obtained and published at The Core Memory site. To reach it just click: and find the Test close to the end of the 'NCR: How It All Begun' paragraph at the page.
