Here is some information about TopScore Pro's  BONUS OAT REVIEW GUIDE and some helpful advice....

First, please don't get tricked or fooled into buying some cheap guide that promises "secrets" or an "easy way" to score well on the OAT, or they have some "line" on actual test questions.  These are gimmicks to get a few quick bucks from you or fraudulent marketing to let you think they have a legitimate source to actual test questions.  Those who score high on the OAT have put in the effort to do well. It is not by chance or someone's "10 secrets" or a "professor want-a-be" with actual questions.  It is primarily done by studying the right topics, doing practice tests, and understanding some good "tips".  This is what "makes sense" on how to do well and how you go about it.  Gimmicks always sound to good to be true and almost always are!!

Understand that there are no short cuts or silver bullets to doing well on this test. You must study!  The important thing is to focus your studies on the EXACT OAT topics and not waste your study time.  You have likely spent a lot of time in your college courses and trying to do well.  Now you need to "Study Smart" as we say and focus on the OAT topics, mechanics and PRACTICE!

Because there are those gimmicks out there, we have included a great and helpful guide to help your study effort (Bonus Guide below).  This guide is written by students who performed very well on the OAT (top 5% or better) and are currently in Optometry School.  Our company has been around since 1998 and is supported by The Princeton Review and many colleges and advisors.  You may CALL our company any time (see Contact Us).  Our students on staff take calls usually during the evening when they work or often answer emails a lot.  They usually have some good advice on how to improve your chances of getting in.  They got in successfully and so can you.  Good luck!


As an added bonus to purchasing TopScore Pro? for the OAT you will receive as part of the CD-ROM, a special guide that highlights each section and provides valuable "tips and techniques" entitled "Preparing for the Optometry Admission Test".

This document is filled with proven tips compiled by optometry students who have gone through the Optometry Admission Test and written down what helped them the most. There are many tips for all sections.

Here is the introduction to the guide.

Preparing for the Optometry Admission Test (OAT)

The OAT is a rigorous test that requires time and preparation. But, you are likely already on your way to preparing for the test. Most students take the OAT in their junior year of college after they have finished the core natural science courses (biology, chemistry, & organic chemistry) and are starting the application process for optometry school.

Currently the OAT is a written test. TopScore Pro? for the OAT computerized test WILL help the preoptometry student improve their test taking skills. Specifically, pay attention to the automatic timer, PaceSetter? and our content. What we have to say and our tips and tricks will help you.

One of the first things you should understand is that you CAN do well on the OAT if you prepare yourself. Although the test is comprehensive and covers many science, physics, math and reading comprehension subjects, you should decide now that you will do well and will do what it takes to get a "top score".

We have outlined what it takes to do well on the OAT by section. These ideas and tips come directly from current optometry students who have RECENTLY taken the OAT and are attending optometry school. At ScholarWare, we take pride in obtaining CURRENT and RELEVANT information and have revolving on-staff consulting optometry students who keep us apprised of the latest successful tricks and techniques.

Have confidence, use TopScore Pro? for the OAT, and prepare to succeed.

Good Luck!

Natural Science Component

The Natural Science section comprises three major topics: General Biology, Inorganic Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. Outlined below are topics that are "fair game" for the OAT. Areas with an "*" indicate topics that are questioned on nearly every test. How do we know that? Our optometry student consultants remember the questions!
