Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test® (BMCT)


Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test®

The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test® (BMCT®)is the most widely used and trusted assessment of mechanical aptitude.  The test is designed to measure the ability to perceive and understand the relationship of physical forces and mechanical elements in practical situations.  This type of aptitude is important in jobs and training programs that require the understanding and application of mechanical principles.  The individual who scores high in mechanical comprehension tends to learn easily the principles of the operation and repair of complex devices.

The BMCT® has 68 multiple choice items and is a timed test that must be completed in 30 minutes or less.

Test questions are written by a panel of technical service experts from vehicle manufacturers, repair and test equipment and parts manufacturers, plus technicians and educators.

All tests are scored by ACT, a non-profit corporation engaged in test development and administration, and in educational and vocational research.
