With your big test coming up, you want to look into getting the help of a good OAT tutor. This is a complex test, and one that anyone who wants to study optometry in the US or Canada will be required to pass. You will find the help of someone who knows the material, has likely taken the test, and has coached others for the same test, is extremely valuable.
Your OAT tutor will help you pinpoint your weak areas, and determine your strengths in preparation. They will help you direct your study time to achieve the most progress. As your OAT tutor works with you and drills you in preparation, you will feel much more ready and confident for your big test. Ideally, you should enlist the help of an OAT tutor fairly early in the game, not leaving it all for last minute cramming sessions. These are stressful for all involved, and don’t usually produce the best results.
However, if for some reason you have left study for the last minute, you should absolutely make haste in hiring an OAT tutor. At least having the help of a professional ensures that you give it the best shot you can.
You can find an OAT tutor online, or through bulletins and private ads, as well as local companies that specialize in test prep. Hiring a private instructor obviously involves some expense, and it is always tempting to try and get by on as little as possible. If at all possible, resist the temptation to skimp this time. You will see that the one on one tutoring and instruction will put you in so much better a position than if you would have tried to “go it alone.” The results totally justify the expense.
