  1. Find the testing center nearest you. Pearson puts out a list but make sure you contact the school or testing center directly well in advance of your test date to get scheduled.


  1. Schedule your test day.  Ensure you have adequate time to study and prepare for the exam.


  1.  Calculate all of the fees involved with taking the exam; every school differs, so make sure you ask.  If you are traveling from out of town, make sure you budget for fuel, lodging, and food.


  1.  Map out your route to the testing center, making sure to make allowances for traffic or other emergencies. Book a hotel and find a restaurant, if necessary.


  1.  Determine your study schedule.  Whether you only have 1 week or 1 month or more, make sure you carve out time to familiarize yourself with the structure of the test.


  1.  Take stock of the resources available to you and remember to consider online and print resources.  Check your local library to see what they have to offer!


  1. Start studying your analogies.  Remember that the goal is to find the relationship between 2 words and compare it with another set of words; you are not trying to match meanings.


  1. Read voraciously, especially in areas you are weak.  While you can’t really cram for the MAT, reading increases your exposure to concepts.


  1. Study the types of analogies that will be featured on the test and practice determining the relationship types.


… and #1 Take practice tests!  There are many free practice tests available online and Pearson offers practice tests for a fee.  Whichever you decide to use practice tests are worth their investment of time and/or money.

There you have it, 10 Top Tips for the Miller Analogies Test. Plan, prepare, take the exam, and relax!
