Summer time is here and it is a great time to start preparing for the Optometry Admission Test aka the OAT! Yes, you need to start prepping now! No really, you do and your summer can still be awesome! We suggest at least three months of preparation before tackling the OAT in all its glory and summer is really a perfect time to start! With the right kind of preparation you can spend more time poolside and still be ready for the test! The OAT is really like four tests on Natural Sciences, Physics, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Reasoning and takes nearly five hours to complete. Whew, at least they won’t be testing you on the impossible mystery that has stumped optometry for years: Arthur and his magic glasses. See below.
First thing’s first, you should read the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry aka ASCO’s Guide to the OAT here. If after reading that over this seems like a daunting task, that’s because it is. So what do you do? Do you need to buy a really big book or fancy software?
