Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Classification Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on classifying words based on groups. 

The MAT tests many types of analogies including classification analogies. These classification analogies are a form of analogy that compares terms based on what group the term belongs to. This video demonstrates a strategy to approach to identify the answer to these sometimes seemingly obscure terms.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Affix Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on affixes. 

The MAT tests on a number of analogies, including affix analogies. Affixes are part of a word that indicate a definition. At the beginning of a word, these are called prefixes. At the end of the word they are referred to as suffixes. As prior videos have described, it is important to have a working knowledge of affixes to succeed on the MAT. Below we provide a systematic strategy on approaching these affix questions. 

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Action Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on words that are action oriented. 

In preparing for the MAT, the action analogy requires specificity. While many students will encounter terms that are unfamiliar, there are ways to diligently break down the question and answer in order to increase the likelihood of reaching a correct answer.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Degree Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on words that are lesser or greater than their counterparts. 

This video provides an approach to degree analogies where terms are compared based on their relationship. These terms typically are related by a lesser or greater degree than the other term. These questions require a systematic approach and can be challenging. We recommend that you watch this video a couple of times in order to hone your approach to these question types.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Proper Place Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on proper nouns. 

This video looks at proper noun style questions, which may require some contextual knowledge. The MAT is a test that primarily tests on the ability to define relationships through analogies. This video uses an example of geographical landmarks to illustrate how to approach proper noun questions.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Math Analogies

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on math. 

The MAT presents as an alternative to the GRE for many students applying to graduate programs. MAT math focuses primarily on definitions and sequences rather than calculations. The MAT is composed of 120 questions over the course of 60 minutes. The main focus of this test is on test taker’s ability to solve analogies. We hope this video aids you in preparing for common math analogies on the MAT.
