This is pretty much spot on. Anyone who managed to get a 3.0+ GPA in high school should get at least a 35 on the Wonderlic. It shouldn't require study or preparation. I took one at a management seminar; finished it with time left on the clock and crushed it. Nothing on the test required anything I learned in college. The most "difficult" questions are on the level of maybe a high school sophomore.
I don't believe it's a valid gauge of high intelligence, but I can see its value in revealing a person's laziness, learning disability, illiteracy, or plain old stupidity.
