I would recommend taking a Kaplan course or downloading various OAT resources if you get easily distracted or side tracked. First I downloadd the small Kaplan test booklet that contained 2 full practice tests with hundreds of additional practice questions.
That was all I downloadd! As you may already know, this small book is nowhere near enough material to study for the OAT so of course additional materials were needed, but I wanted to get these materials for free. So, I paid a visit to my local public library.
I checked out about 10 textbooks for supplementary studying.
These textbooks covered the areas of biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and basic math. These books had superb explanations for everything I was having trouble understanding while taking practice tests.
But the best part is still to come! The MCAT books, on the other hand, provided me with more challenging practice questions including detailed explanations for the science subjects on the OAT. I was determined to locate more free materials out there, so I grabbed my backpack and went out on the hunt. I successfully obtained a free Kaplan trial course that they were offering in my area by just going to their website and signing up. It turns out I got above a in all sections and I was confident that with a week of more studying I would bring my scores up even higher.
It was hands down the most boring summer of my entire life! I was either sitting in class or sitting in the library, and having fun with friends was pretty much out of the question. Working at Optix Family Eyecare was the best part. I began my studies by doing some sample practice questions from the small Kaplan book to get a feel for how the test would be. While doing the questions, I would write down the main topic that each question was based around.

I was either sitting in class or sitting in the library, and having fun with friends was pretty much out of the question. Working at Optix Family Eyecare was the best part. I began my studies by doing some sample practice questions from the small Kaplan book to get a feel for how the test would be. While doing the questions, I would write down the main topic that each question was based around.
This way I would have a list of topics later on that I could study. Next to each topic I would place stars, with 3 stars meaning I was excellent at the subject and 1 star meaning I really needed work. This organization process helped me to keep my priorities straight. At this point I felt so overwhelmed because the questions were difficult and I was not as sharp as I thought I was.
Yet in front of me I had about practice tests and enough supplementary material to teach me what I did not know. For all sections of the OAT there are common topics that are presented upon but each question is slightly different. So for every practice test that I finished, I would compare this test with another, side by side. I would meticulously examine which questions were very similar in nature.
So after taking many practice tests I had a list of topics and questions that I was sure would be on my OAT and so I made certain to completely and thoroughly understand these topics. The people who write the OAT do like to focus on specific subjects, and it is your job to be the detective and find out exactly what it is they like to ask about.
I think that many people go through this test and notice that certain topics are stressed more than others but never really directly compare questions from test to test. By doing this direct comparison I narrowed down almost exactly what would be asked of me.
For the biology, organic chemistry, general chemistry, and physics sections of the test I stuck to my method very strictly. I would take a test, compare questions to those on other tests and then study those topics quite thoroughly by using the big Kaplan book and textbooks.
This method allows you to use your time effectively. You focus on everything important and avoid delving into hours of unnecessary studying. By looking at the scoring sheet we can see that if an individual got roughly 4 questions wrong they can still get a for this section the scoring scale has since been adjusted, but there is still some room for error to attain a
