Worth it. My son was taking the CogAT Level 5/6 for school and with help from the practice tests, he scored well and was able to get into the county's gifted program. Thank you so much.
Excellent service! I bought a MAP pack and wrote to ask about grade differences. TestPrep-Online quickly responded with an extensive list of points. I greatly appreciated this service. They went above and beyond!
My son was preparing for CogAT Level 9. With practice, my son got used to the question styles and the practice built his confidence with the exam. Once kids know they can do well, there is no limit – they will always do their best. I have recommended TestPrep-Online to all my friends.
Very helpful! I used the MAP 4th grade practice pack and the practice questions were very close to what the actual test was like. I passed with flying colours.

We got the CogAT practice tests for our daughter. She nailed the test and I would totally recommend TestPrep-Online to other parents.
TestPrep is helping a lot, I am able to get used to the questions and learn how to solve them quickly.
We used the CogAT practice tests and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. I liked that my child had both the timed and step-by-step options when taking a practice test.
These practice tests were good for my daughter to get her ready for her MAP testing. It provided some guidance for her to know what to expect.

MAP & CogAT Prep Tips

  • Schedule time to study. Maintaining a routine for your child’s studying process will not only kick your child’s mind into gear, but also decrease the likelihood of him or her refusing to study, as it will already be part of the day-to-day tasks.
  • Base studying sessions on topics, not just tests. If you are preparing for the MAP and CogAT simultaneously, we recommend making studying sessions not just test-specific but also category-specific. This is because your child may be struggling with a specific topic rather than a specific test.

  • Schedule in breaks. Make sure your child has regular breaks to help him or her stay refreshed and ready to process new information.
  • Add variety. Your child may get bored in the studying process- it’s hard to avoid. So, we recommend keeping the process more fun by sprinkling in some unconventional tactics to learn reading and math- for example, cake baking for measurements, movie watching for new vocabulary
  • Keep your child healthy. The brain needs power to get all that new information in. Make sure to add plenty of vegetables, whole grains, and protein sources such as eggs and fish to help keep your child ready for action.
