OAT Test

If you are considering a future in the optometry field, then the Optometry Admission Test (or OAT test) is a must when applying to optometry school. While you are required to have completed one year of college before taking the exam, test-takers are encouraged to finish at least two years at their university. And, your coursework must include biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics. Your classes in the sciences will be tested during the OAT exam, as the four sections include Physics, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Survey of Natural Sciences (Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry).

I purchased this book for my daughter in preparation for OAT exam. The book is easy to follow and top of line written by experts.

OAT Study Guide – Daniella

When I was getting ready for this big test, I didn't know what I was going to do. I knew I needed a study guide to help me, but I had no idea where I was going to find one that would work for my subject. I got online in a futile attempt to find what I needed and I ran across the exact guide I needed. I almost thought I was dreaming because I found a study guide that was in my subject and even on the test I was going to be taking. When I looked through the study guide, I realized it had things that other guides didn't have. First, it had ALL of the content I needed to study...all in one place! Second, it had some test taking tips that helped me realize mistakes I made on tests in the past. And third, it had practice tests that allowed me to see how the real test would look. Oh, and it even had studying secrets to help me get through the grind of the actual studying. I'm not sure how I would have gotten through the test without this study guide but I'm sure glad I don't have to find out.

OAT Study Guide – Tia

Easy to follow and understand the passages. I like the tips and further material available for studying the topics and understanding the test.

OAT Study Guide – Emmy

Good and up to date study guides for the OAT test aren't always readily available. So we are very pleased to add your excellent and comprehensive book to our student collection in our Library.

OAT Study Guide – Edna

The study guide has sections that cover the information needed for every section of the OAT. It also includes test taking tips and practice problems.

OAT Study Guide – Emmelia

The book is very organized and clear. It's detailed, yet to the point to ensure I only focus on what is necessary to know for the exam.

OAT Study Guide – Brittany

I am very satisfied with the test preparation booklet and enjoy working with it. I love how the set of questions are clearly categorized based on their subject ( i.e. Natural sciences, Quantitative reasoning etc) because this allows me to know how well I am doing in those particular subjects and where I need to focus my time more on.

OAT Study Guide – Faiza

This study book has helped me a lot! This has helped with definitions, equations, problem solving...etc. I would highly recommend this book to whoever is taking the OAT.
