Review Our MAT Test Study Guide Is Unlike Any OtherIf you'd like to get the MAT score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the MAT is 'good enough,' and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.Our comprehensive study guide for the MAT is written by our MAT experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to ace your MAT. Our original research into the Miller Analogies Test (MAT), offered by the Harcourt Assessment, Inc. (HAI), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the MAT. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the MAT.Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:The Three Reasons To Believe What We SayThe First Reason:Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the MAT. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.The Second Reason:Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the MAT despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.The Third Reason:We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the MAT.A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the MAT- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the MAT.Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the MAT...The Exclusive Test Taking TechniquesExplains how the MAT time limits are the #1 enemy of most students, and what you can do about it- You avoid falling into the many 'time traps' built into the test, giving you an immeasurable advantage over those who go into the test unawareDescribes exactly what you should do to determine the relationships between analogies - You won't waste time scratching your head as you try to figure it outShows you super speed methods to get through the questions you know with ease - You'll save time to concentrate on the hardest questions without rushingSecrets to questions that 'give away' the wrong (or right) answers- You get credit for some of the questions without really even knowing anything about themEmpowers you with key word matching tips that will let you match analogies in seconds- You won't be wasting precious time anymoreGet quick, customized help for the questions you have- just send us a quick email and we'll get back to you promptly with the answer.Our researchers are more than just academic theoreticians who understand the technical nature of standardized tests, but are also experts on test taking itself- they reveal the exact skills and the information you'll need to perform under pressure during the test.Details the EXACT STUDY PLAN for the MAT that we believe gives the most results in the least time- No matter if you're studying for a week or a month, you won't waste the precious study time you have on useless activitiesAllows you to recognize critical 'word strength' - You'll understand the significance so you're not caught off guardA systematic analysis and the best breakdown into 'plain language' of how to deconstruct and master mathematical analogies- You turn math problems that most students stumble over to your advantageGives you simple explanations for hard to remember prefixes and suffixes - You will be able to dissect the toughest words with easeLearn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage.

I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! BrianJust dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score. Denise W.I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.
