Optometry Admissions Test (OAT) Prep Courses

About the OAT

Kaplan Logo

All schools and colleges of optometry require candidates to submit OAT scores for admissions.

The OAT is designed to predict general academic ability and measure the two skills needed by future optometrists: Scientific knowledge and analytical ability. It does this by testing your knowledge of physics, chemistry, and biology; your reading comprehension ability; and your quantitative reasoning skills.
