So this is the first website that I found, it’s for 2020-2021 (current academic year) but might give some guidelines.

https://www.ammissione.it/area-socia...ni-2020/18769/
It’s in Italian, but open using Google Chrome and you can get an automatic translation. They mention that some of the tests only give 55% of the entry points, the rest being from your academic results and a 2% bonus is given for ‘languages’ (presumably Italiano?) this above is for social/economic courses and it has a “simulate exam” button ; there are similar pages for economics/law

This very similar link gives the same info, mentions that the 110 minute test is additional to a generic SAT etc, again use a website translator to help
https://www.skuola.net/test-ingresso...oni-2020x.html
So perhaps a generic reasoning training website can help?

Be careful, as I was searching some websites popped-up and offered a free book on Bocconi, all I had to do was register at this random site and give them my full credit card number, dates, rear PIN code, passwords, email address and all of my money. There were several ‘genuine” comments from satisfied customers, encouraging this theft, probably. Attenzione ai truffi!

So, I tested the Bocconi entrance simulation test, to check for ‘cybersecurity’ issues and it seems genuine

Choose Bocconi, and you’ll get to an online simulator

This website does offer eBooks for training, seemingly only in Italian

Yes but nothing impossible, if you come prepared and if you have trained you should perform

Hey! If anyone needs Bocconi application advice, Project Acess is a charity where current Bocconi students (amonst others) volunteer to help out. You can get your mentor here: https://projectaccess.org/join-our-program
We also already held a webinar about Sciences Po and Bocconi: we held an AA webinar with panelists from Sciences Po and Bocconi, here is the recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypQncy70uyo
Best of luck!
