They tell you what to expect in terms of test format, how to best approach the test, offer topic info, and much more. The practice tests are helpful but what I found even more helpful were the real/official MAT tests found online. Those tests tell you what to expect in terms of your final score, whereas the practices tests in the Dummies book and the other test prep books don't do that. I found that the Dummies book tests were harder than the real test. 5 people found this helpful.

This is the best MAT review book in my opinion. They tell you what to expect in terms of test format, how to best approach the test, offer topic info, and much more. The practice tests are helpful but what I found even more helpful were the real/official MAT tests found online. Those tests tell you what to expect in terms of your final score, whereas the practices tests in the Dummies book and the other test prep books don't do that. I found that the Dummies book tests were harder than the real test.

I bought this on Kindle just to use its practice tests. I didn't even look at the other parts of the book, so I can't comment there.

I used the first practice test without a timer, just to get used to what it was like, where to shift my eyes, how to think about the analogies, how much time I would have ... basically, what to expect.

Then I took the second and third practice tests. I got 63% and 65% of them right. Then I went and took the MAT. I got a raw score of 63 (432 scaled). So, if you want a fair look at where you are so that you can relax going into it, or so that you can use the other parts of the book to try and boost your score, I think this is a great value. Heck, there were three more practice tests I didn't even use.

And some of the familiarity with the specific words and concepts in these practice tests definitely showed up on the MAT. If you are in for a quick preparation, this can't be beat.

I have trouble focusing, and I have test anxiety, so this was especially valuable to me for simply understanding the rhythms of the test, the way the thoughts run, how much time to allow myself, how often I would be able to pause my thinking, close my eyes, and take a deep breath to reset my motor. I can't imagine how poorly I'd have done if I had let my runaway thoughts and anxieties kick in.

Long story short: worth it for the test exams alone. I knew what to expect, and even what score to expect. Good luck out there.

I was hesitant to purchase this book, at first. I feared that it wouldn't be as helpful as some of the others out there. Honestly, I think it was more helpful. It explained the MAT test in basic terms, which is a plus for me. Why over complicate explaining the test, when the focus should be on studying the material needed to pass the test. The book is well organized and the six complete practice tests allow you to get a really good idea of how prepared you are for the actual test. Great purchase!

OK, just took the MAT and did pretty well on it. Had I given myself the time suggested in this book I would have aced it. Not all of them right but I would have been in the 95th percentile instead of the 91st. Without I would have been in the high 80's I just know it. Doesn't matter for my school but it might matter for yours. One of the reason I did well is because I have a humanities back ground which does make a difference. You can't learn everything you need to but where this book helped me more than any of the others (that I waited till the last minute to look through) is its straight forward tips and strategies that were spot on. It will help 're awaken' what you already know. If you are/were a humanities major I think this is the only MAT book you'll need. Get a GRE vocab book if your vocab is weak. Brush up on your -ologies and your greek gods/goddess and the major myths, and do every practice test in here. I only did two of them because I didn't start studying to the day before, this is not bragging this is procrastination talking. Two questions on the exam were in this book. One of them I would have marked wrong had it not been explained to me in this book. Who knew there were idiomatic analogies. Even if you don't buy this book, you will need to review for this test, you have to get your mind think in analogies otherwise it will take too long to get into the rhythm of things and you'll waste time. Good luck!

Best MAT guide. Scored very well with minimal preparation (primarily using this text).

FYI- Practice tests in this text are easier than the actual MAT.

This book was instrumental in helping me pass the MAT. It was full of test-taking strategy, which in my opinion, was the most crucial for doing well. If you have the time, you can also glean from the plethora of review options in various areas: mathematics, humanities, language, sciences... just to name a few. I HIGHLY recommend this book. (I made a 418 on my first and only attempt of the MAT.)

I studied all the things in the book. I read and reread a lot of the random topics and vocabulary that they put in the book. Turns out a lot of the words and history was mentioned in the actual test. Very useful.
Book worked for what I needed. I reviewed each section and took several tests the week prior to taking the MAT. I scored a 454 (98th percentile). I would have enjoyed flash cards that pop out.
