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.

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.

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.

I'm happy to report that my 3rd grade niece took her SCAT test and passed the quantitative math portion with flying colors - 44 of 50 correct! Your test preps were a huge help.

Sample Test Preview

[1] The following question has two parts. One part is in Column A. The other part is in Column B. You must determine if one part is greater than the other or if the parts are equal. Then select one of the following four answers:

  • A if the part in Column A is greater
  • B if the part in Column B is greater
  • C if the two parts are equal
  • D if not enough information is given

[2] The following question has two parts. One part is in Column A. The other part is in Column B. You must determine if one part is greater than the other or if the parts are equal. Then select one of the following four answers:

  • A if the part in Column A is greater
  • B if the part in Column B is greater
  • C if the two parts are equal
  • D if not enough information is given

[3] Each question begins with two words. These two words go together in a certain way.
Select the pair of words from the answer choices that go together in the same way as the first pair of words.

Answers

[1] Choice A – The area of the big square (including the small white square) is (k + m)2. If we simplify it: (k + m)2 = k2 + 2km + m2. The area of the small white square is k2. The area in Column A is the shaded area which is k2 + 2km + m2 minus k2, k2 + 2km + m2 - k2 = 2km + m2 and 2km + m2 = m (2k + m). Since both m and k are lengths, they are positive numbers. Therefore, the part in Column A (m (2k + m)) is greater than the part in Column B (m (k + m)).

[2] Choice C –Looking at the hexagon and the bold line, the perimeter and the bold line have 4 sides in common. The difference between the two is that in Column A (the perimeter) two gray sides of the hexagon are added, while in Column B two lines from the center to the hexagon vertex are added. In a regular hexagon divided to 6 triangles, meeting at the center, the length of the lines connecting the center to the vertex is equal to the length of a side of the hexagon.

Each triangle created is an equilateral triangle:        

This means that the two sides of the hexagon are equal to the two lines from the center to the vertex. Therefore, the part in column A is equal to the part in column B, and the correct answer is C.

[3] Choice A – The correct answer is benefactor, or- aid. A counselor provides advice as a benefactor provides aid.

Tips For Preparing For The Advanced SCAT's Math Section

  • Incorporate mathematical concepts into a variety of activities. Studying math can feel tedious, especially when the methods remain routine (i.e. reading explanations, answering questions). While negating the conventional methods of studying math is not the answer, we do recommend adding a little variety to allow the brain to better process the information. Help your child understand the use of the mathematical concepts s/he is learning by incorporating them into fun activities, such as cooking, shopping, or hypothetical situations.
  • Create a form of formulae. Some formulae are specifically hard to memorize. Therefore, we recommend putting together a form of formulae, which your student can refer back to at any point of his or her studying process.
  • Don’t just memorize- understand too! It may be tempting to simply memorize a concept or a formula without understanding its mechanisms. Doing this, however, can cause a range of setbacks further on in the studying process. Instead, we recommend studying at the pace necessaty to properly understand the material- even if it’s seemingly slower.
  • Start from the bottom and work your way up! If you’re having trouble understanding something, don’t worry. Take a step back, and start from something you do know, then piece by piece, work your way to the part of the mathematical process you’re having trouble with. This will help you zero-in on the problem, and, therefore, solve it.
