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.

questions! [This document in its entirety is on the CD-ROM]
