We used the NNAT practice pack. The NNAT examples helped him what to expect on the test...and he got into the gifted program!
My son was preparing for the NNAT test. We really liked it! It was easy to use and helped us a lot. Some of the questions were easy for my son, while for other questions he really had to think. It was a good combination.
We used the OLSAT Level D tests. Our experience with TestPrep-Online's OLSAT practice pack was great! The content and layout are excellent and the site is so easy to use. Our son's results were excellent and we would definitely recommend this site to other parents.
The fact that the practice tests were online and very visual was great, as it helped my kids to be more responsive to exercises.
The test at school (NNAT) was easier than the questions on the website. I knew my answers were correct for all the questions except for two of them that I found somewhat confusing. I had a lot of fun doing the test!
With one week of my son using the OLSAT/NNAT, his scores improved drastically. My son received the training and confidence he needed to succeed and he was accepted onto the program!

Questions on the NNAT

The following question types are typically found on the NNAT test, depending on the level:

  1. NNAT Pattern Completion - Students are shown a design and asked to identify which answer choice will fill the missing area. The student needs to extend the given pattern in a conceptual manner.
  2. NNAT Reasoning by Analogy - Students are expected to recognize relationships among various geometric shapes. To find the correct answer, the student must determine how the geometric objects change across the rows and down the columns of the design. Reasoning by Analogy questions demand careful attention to the details of the design and characteristics simultaneously (color, shape, and direction).
  3. NNAT Serial Reasoning - These questions asses the student's ability to find the missing element in a given matrix made up of geometric shapes. Each matrix is composed of nine boxes in a three-by-three grid. The student is required to figure out which answer choice belongs in the empty box in the bottom right-hand corner of the matrix.
  4. NNAT Spatial Visualization - Students are required to mentally manipulate shapes. These questions are among the more difficult ones in the NNAT, especially those questions involving shapes which intersect in ways which may be difficult to recognize or involve rotation.
