The aptitude test is the basic preliminary test that every company conducts before hiring the freshers. The aptitude section of all the major exams has more weightage. Almost 60% of students are eliminated in the aptitude round. Sometimes we practice the same for months but still not able to crack aptitude exams. We know all the formulas and everything but always panicked while solving the questions. Sometimes we get stuck on one question and run out of time to attempt all questions. We get confused while solving diagrammatical and Data Analysis questions.
We all know basic math but under pressure, we even get the right ones wrong. An aptitude test is just an extended form of mathematics that we studied in class 9 & 10. We can solve the same questions at home but not in the exam as there is a time limit for solving questions and we are not prepared to handle the pressure. Aptitude tests mean practice and practice. The best thing we could do is prepare as much as one can before we attempt aptitude in exams.
The best way to solve our problems is to attempt it.
If you have enough preparation before the exam then you can perform better than 70% of the students. In this time you can take help from the Websites that offer tests as well as study material for preparation. So, the best website would be the one that teaches you to handle these major hinders for cracking any aptitude exam. The list includes some free as well as some paid websites that you can use to excel in the exam.

My personal recommendation to prepare for the aptitude test is to first brush up on all the basics of the topic. Write down all the formulas of the topic. Take up one topic at a time and finish it with mock tests. one can try different websites to solve questions on the same topic. Before buying the paid subscription attempt the free trial to get an overview. One can also buy some books that are available in the market like R.S. Agrawal aptitude preparation. Attempt company-specific tests before the final tests to get some ideas of the questions. At last, I would suggest practice the more you can.
