    I am looking for the aptitude test I wrote in 1959 when I joined NCR as a Field Engineer.
This was a pure mechanical test that consisted of a number of Gears and Levers with related questions.
(I think it may have been called the S-2 Test)

Thank You

Hi! Chris, and member,

  Good afternoon from Japan.

I remember the S-2 Test when I have tried to get a job of field engineer of NCR Japan in June, 1968.
It looked like a intelligence test of the mathematics for students in my high school days.

I enjoyed very much to calculate the number of rotation of the destination gear through the levers when the souce gear rotates.
I noticed the mechanics of Cash register is similar to the time clock
or the hand-driven calcurator.

Best regards,
in Iwate, Japan

Hi Chris,

I've recently got the S-2 Test you are looking for. In case you still need it, just let me know and we will decide how to make it available to you (it's PDF of 26,5 MB).


P.S. You can download it here: Just find "S-2 Aptitude Test" close to the end of "NCR: How It All Begun" paragraph.
