Default Aptitude preparation

Hi,
I am currently in phase in which I must study for flight school aptitude tests. As I read on their website they have pretty difficult entry conditions. I think they test you in math, logical thinking, cognitive skills, sensory-motor skills etc.
Now I have question:
-Is out there any good book that is made especially for aptitude test
preparation?
-I think I should improve my math and logical thinking so I am also looking for this
-What type of physics is included in test(calculating accelaration,electric engineering...) and if you recommend any book or website for exercises.
-Any other books or websites for preparation altough I prefer books.

Thank you in advance.

Is this a program outside the USA?

What you need to know about math to fly aircraft can fit on the head of a pin; next to nothing. Basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. That's it.

What aptitude tests for what flight school? There are a lot of metrics out there for measuring pilots; most of them are ridiculous and unnecessary.

Aviation is extremely difficult, dangerous, and disgusting, so pilots must be offered vast compensation.
Thatís our story and weíre sticking to it.
