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.
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!

Wonderful resources for OLSAT test preparation. We were very happy with the results.

Within the Verbal section of the OLSAT is a subsection called Verbal Reasoning. This section assesses the ability to understand relationships. Specifically, it tests the ability to:

  • Find and deduce relationships between words
  • Understand and draw conclusions from new situations
  • Make comparisons and observe differences or similarities

Verbal Reasoning Question Types

The following table demonstrates the seven Verbal Reasoning question types that appear on the OLSAT Verbal:


Type Level Description
Aural Reasoning A-C These questions test a child’s ability to visualize and understand a situation on both a large and small scale. They focus on the ability to piece together and infer relevant information from smaller details to form an understanding of the bigger picture. Aural Reasoning questions are read aloud by the instructor, additionally testing children’s ability to hear, understand and follow verbal instructions.”
Arithmetic Reasoning A-G These questions test problem solving abilities. Questions focus more on numerical reasoning and logic than they do on computational abilities. These questions assess the child’s ability to use numbers in order to infer relationships, deduce computational rules, and predict outcomes.
Logical Selection D-G Logical Selection questions assess the ability to complete sentences and statements about everyday scenarios using simple logic.
Word/Letter Matrix D-G These questions are similar to fill-in-the-blank type questions and test a child’s ability to fill in the missing piece of the puzzle. Given a matrix of words or letters, a child has to be able to use basic logic to figure out the missing portion of the matrix.
Verbal Analogy D-G Verbal Analogy questions test the ability to find the relationship between two words, and find a second pair of words that are related in the same way.
Verbal Classification D-G Verbal Classification questions test the ability to look at a group of words and figure out which one does not belong in the group, based on similarities or differences within the set of words.
Inference E-G These questions test the ability to infer the correct conclusion given a syllogism. A syllogism is a logical argument based on multiple propositions that are given and assumed to be true. A classic example of a syllogism is as follows: “All men are mortal. Socrates is a man. Therefore, Socrates is mortal.” On the test, children will be given the basic propositions and will have to infer the correct conclusion.

Verbal Reasoning Sample Question

The following is a sample Arithmetic Reasoning test item from the Verbal Reasoning section.

Answer and Explanation

The correct answer is A.

First, count how many frogs Francesca has. By looking at the picture in the beginning of the row, we see that Francesca owns three frogs. Since Chris has twice the number of frogs, it means he has two times Francesca's three frogs, or 3+3=6 frogs.
