This was DDs bugbear, fortunately it is only a small part of the test. It is about trying to see it folded or unfolded and discounting or ruling in edges that you can see are touching each other or could touch each other. Not a tip about the cubes themselves per-se but careful about the question. The examples we found and practised on were all about what would match and in the real test it was wouldn't match (or other way round I can't remember exactly only that it was the opposite of what she was used to) which DD spotted but seemed that some of her friends just went with what they knew and struggled with those as a result.
