We used the OLSAT Level D tests. 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.

TestPrep-Online was a really great tool for my 6th grader, and yes, she qualified for the GATE program with a 96%. My 12 year old daughter said it really helped her feel prepared for the actual test. I already recommended the practice pack to another mom. Thank you very much!

We wanted to to get an idea of what would be on the OLSAT and the practice pack helped us with that. We particularly liked that it specified where improvement was needed.

We got the OLSAT tests. Our child took the test at the end of January. She enjoyed preparing and thought the questions were challenging.

Tips on How to Prepare for the OLSAT

Step 1:

The first tip is to learn as much as you can about the OLSAT. It is especially helpful to talk to parents whose child has already taken the test, as they will give you tips from their experiences. It is also highly recommended to have a chat with your child's teacher. Remember, teachers spend a lot of time with your child, and your child's teachers are very likely to know what he or she finds more challenging and needs more practice on.

Step 2:

Find out what OLSAT test level your child will be taking: OLSAT Level A , OLSAT Level B, OLSAT Level C, OLSAT Level D, OLSAT Level E, OLSAT Level F, or OLSAT Level G and understand the format of the relevant OLSAT level (content, number of questions, testing time). See graph. TestPrep-Online offers a practice pack for each level from A to F, designed to contain all the practice your child needs in order to achieve his or her full potential.

Step 3:

Practice, practice, practice! Check out TestPrep-Online's OLSAT practice study packs.

  • Find a quiet study area that is conducive to studying.
  • Implement plenty of study breaks into practice sessions.
  • Make a study schedule. Involve your child in the schedule.
  • Always read the explanations. If your child answers a question incorrectly, it is crucial to read the explanations and see what he or she got wrong. Even if your child answers a question correctly, it is still recommended to read the explanation, since it can show your child another way of thinking which might help him or her in future questions.
  • Encourage your child to try again if he or she does not succeed the first time.

Step 4:

Tips for the day of the test:

  • Make sure your child is well rested. It is recommended to go to bed early the night before.
  • Have your child eat a nutritional breakfast. Foods rich in protein (such as eggs) are typically a good choice. Avoid foods that your child is not used to and try to avoid sweets, which are likely to make your child's concentration drop after a short while.
  • Have your child dress in layers so that he or she will be comfortable regardless of the room temperature.
  • Offer your child to do a few practice problems which he or she has already done before to wake up their brain.
  • Don't have him or her try difficult questions they have never seen.
  • Bring your child at the testing site early with at least two pencils.
  • Stay calm and encourage your child to keep a positive spirit. If you are optimistic, your child will be optimistic, too.

OLSAT Tips for Young Children:

These tips are more specific for your young scholar (Pre-K- 2nd Grade) who will be taking the OLSAT Level A, OLSAT Level B, or OLSAT Level C.

  • Explain to your child that they are taking the OLSAT to demonstrate what they know and provide greater insight into how they learn.
  • Young children have a hard time sitting still for a long time, but staying focused is an essential skill needed for the test. Help your child practice staying focused on the task at hand.
  • Practice good listening skills with your child . Test administrators will read directions, examples and questions only once.
  • Children ages 4 and 5 learn through play. An important tip is to treat practicing for the OLSAT as a game. Have fun with your child and see it as an opportunity for you to bond and learn together.
  • Make sure your child understands that there is only one answer to every question. Children should understand that they need to read all potential answers before deciding on an answer.
  • Implement plenty of study breaks into your practice sessions to keep children engaged and sharp.
