Sooo a few weeks ago I posted about the GRE. Well, I found out that the program I want to apply to also accepts the Miller Analogy Test (MAT). I scheduled it for 3/10…which is a week from now. I have a book and I’ve been working through it, but I was wondering if anyone on here has taken this exam – can you share your experience? I scheduled it so early so that I can take it again on the 29th if I dont do so well.
Do you find out your scores at the end of the test or do you have to wait for it to come in the mail? How long did it take for scores to get to the school you are applying to? Is it horribly hard, or if I study the book will I be ok?
Thanks in advance!

The results come in the mail about a month later.
The test is pretty tough. I’m awesome at analogies but they use words you have never seen before. Be prepared for a lot educated guesses.
I passed the first time around so I guess I’m a great guesser!

@Ice Skate: good to know! Some of them are tricky from what I have seen so far but I just need to be in the 50th percentile or higher to ‘pass’.

Hey I have taken the MAT. It was fileld with analogies. There are books at Books A Million or your local library about the MAT and different test can be found in those books. You can also look online for the type of questions that can be found concerning the MAT test.
I took it via computer and it was one analogy after another one… all in all I did well. And passed the MAT the first time. It is not nescessarily diffcult. To me its more of a waste of money and time because its not any information that a person is taught over the years… its just random words that *the MAT maker* wants to know if you know the word that means about the same thing as the word given.
Its one of those tedious things you have to do and not neccesarily want to do.
